Distance Learning / Dysgu o Bell

In the uncertain times of the Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to ‘be our best’ to support pupils in providing distance learning experiences while also prioritising physical health and well-being.

In light of the current situation, we cannot duplicate the school experience within the home environment but we have carefully considered what is practically achievable. Our aim is to support parents and pupils to the best of our ability, to stay safe, keep a positive mind-set so that when school resumes we can welcome you all back - happy, healthy and positive!

We aim to ‘be our best’ and make every effort to:

  • Keep all children safe and happy.

  • Offer access to childcare for ‘key workers’.

  • Provide appropriate support for Free School Meal pupils.

  • Ensure effective communication to support parents and pupils with their wellbeing and distance learning.

  • Ensure children who are at most risk are being supported.

  • Provide access to learning through digital or other accessible methods.


*Please note:- There will NO expectations placed on pupils or parents to complete work at home. Parents, staff and pupils will maintain an ongoing conversation to agree what sort of learning experiences are best for each child and their family in the current circumstances.


Times are tough and some days are harder than others...but we have to stay positive! We miss all our pupils and know they miss thought we’d send them a special ‘hello’ message! Please share this with them!
