Remote Learning at Thrupp: 2020
On 30th September 2020, Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State, issued a new legal requirement for schools. The Coronavirus Act 2020 provision of Remote Education.
This Education Act requires, that where a class, group of pupils, or individual pupil needs to self isolate, or there are local or national restrictions requiring pupils to remain at home, schools are expected to provide immediate access to remote learning.
At Thrupp, we have agreed to provide this learning facility for our pupils, with the aim that no pupil will fall behind their peers due to being away from our school. Every possible opportunity will be made available to them. Our expectations for the provision of home learning are set out fully in our Remote Learning Policy.
Thrupp School will be using Microsoft Teams to provide virtual learning when a whole year group is absent from school in the case of a class outbreak or a national lockdown.
