Can I keep my other children at home?
The Government has set out the guidance for attendance, which means that pupils who are shielding or self-isolating will be marked with code X which does not count against their absence. Pupils who can and should attend school, but choose not to, will not be marked this way. As a headteacher I am sympathetic to the current situation, but will be expected to follow the guidelines set out. We will set work for pupils who are self-isolating for 14 days due to symptoms or their bubble is closed.
Will students self-isolating have work?
Pupils who are self-isolating will have work set for them, including some live lessons via Google Meet. More details will be sent.
