HOME Learning (Home-work)
At Polehampton, we believe that a little bit of extra work at home can have a huge impact on your child’s progress and learning in class. Please see your child's home learning book for all the details.
Schools are no longer required to provide remote learning, as the self-isolation rules have changed. However, we would still offer remote learning should there be operational reasons why in-school learning wasn't possible. We would be in touch with parents to confirm those arrangements. See snow day tab for snow day information.
Also, if your child is off school but recovering and is well enough to work (for example, you are following the 48hr sickness and diarrhoea rule), then do see the options below to support learning at home.
