Remote Learning

From 22nd October 2020 the DfE have placed a statutory responsibility on all state-funded schools to provide immediate access to remote education to pupils should they miss school due to coronavirus. A contingency plan for providing remote education should be in place.

The contingency would be actioned immediately for the following:

  • Individuals or groups of pupils need to self-isolate, but the rest of the school is still open OR
  • There is a local outbreak and you are asked to close temporarily for most pupils like during the initial school closures in March; 

SAfE have created a template to support schools with their Remote Learning Offer:
