Remote Learning

To view our Remote Learning Policy please click here 

CONTEXT

In the uncertain times that we are currently living in, it is important that we are fully prepared for the possibility that we may have to have a full or partial closure of school depending on the local Covid-19 situation. There will also be instances where individual children will be self-isolating due to coming into contact with a positive case of Covid 19.

At De Bohun we will ensure that remote education, where needed, is of a high quality and aligns as closely as possible with in-school provision and is targeted to the needs of the individual child. We use the term ‘blended learning’ to reflect that the strategies, resources and technology deployed when learning remotely, are being used in the classroom to enhance and supplement our current teaching and learning offer.

WHAT WE DO

As a school, we have detailed plans for remote education so that children will have access to a high quality education at home.
