Bishops Lydeard Church School
Blended (including remote) Learning Offer
Our curriculum is designed to achieve strong outcomes, positive mental and physical health, resilience and identity: reflecting our vision of ‘life in all its fullness’.
Blended Learning offer (Remote Learning) at Bishops Lydeard Church School:
Child or family isolation due to onset of symptoms and awaiting Covid-19 test results:
In the event that a child and their family need to self-isolate the school will offer a blended learning pack.
The blended learning packs are to support your child’s learning and to help them to continue to make progress, where they are well enough to do so, at home.
This pack will include resources for home learning, that are matched to the learning in class where reasonably possible, being sent to families on the first day of a Covid-19 related absence.
The pack will include:
Writing for accuracy
Writing for spelling and spellings from Spelling Shed.
Topic based lessons.
The pack will run for two weeks (10 school days) and the first day of absence is day 1 in the pack.
If you require a printed pack, please contact the office and one can be delivered to you.
For the children in our Bishops Lydeard Nursery there will be learning activities on Tapestry.
Positive Covid-19 case in the school bubble and bubble closure:
If the teacher is well, lessons will be taught and uploaded to TEAMS
The class teacher is isolating and the class bubble is still in school:
In the event that the class teacher is well but isolating at home, they will deliver lessons via TEAMS to the children in the classroom who will have additional adult support to support positive learning behaviours. The TEAMS lessons will follow the curriculum that is being taught
1:1 support if your child receives 1:1 support and they are isolating, a more bespoke programme of support will be set up. They will usually be expected to still complete the learning set on TEAMS relevant to their needs.
