At Abbey Road we believe that children’s learning is strongly influenced by the home. Your interest and involvement in your child’s learning and education is more important than anything else in helping your child fulfil their potential.

During this current COVID-19 period, we know that children will be absent from school for a number of reasons. It may be that your child is unwell and displaying symptoms; it may be that your child is asked to self-isolate because another member of the household is symptomatic or it may be that your child is required to self-isolate because someone they have come into close contact with has tested positive for coronavirus.

If a child is unwell, we would not expect them to be undertaking school work while absent. However, if, for example, your child is self-isolating while awaiting test results for a sibling, the following links and activities can be accessed. All of the activities would support the learning that is taking place in school.

If a group or whole bubble of children is required to self-isolate as a result of a positive test at Abbey Road, class teachers will set a full timetable of home learning, which will commence from the first full day of absence from school. This will include online lessons and the expectation for pupils to submit their learning for feedback. See our Remote Learning Policy and Information for Parents guide for further details:

Remote Learning Policy 2020

Abbey Road Primary School – Remote Education – Information for Parents

Homework Policy 2020

We recognise that children also need time to pursue their own interests and homework should never get in the way of or replace the many activities that children enjoy doing after school. We fully realise that we have some exceptionally busy children here at Abbey Road who gain so much from the varied activities they participate in.
