COVID-19 and Remote Learning INFORMATION


general covid-19 information

Important Notice:

From Wednesday 6th January, school will only be open to children of Critical Workers and Vulnerable children. Read our letter HERE.


The information below is taken from the NHS website.



The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.


What to do if you or your child has symptoms:

f you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.

  2. You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

  3. Anyone in your support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in close contact with them since your symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started.

Q and A about our remote learning offer


Our main platform for remote learning is Seesaw. All children from nursery to Year 6 have a log in. If you need your login re-sending, please contact school and we will be happy to help.

Shield Row Primary - Remote Learning Plan

Daily Expectations

Suggested timetable - EYFS

Example Weekly Plan - Reception

Example Weekly Plan - KS1/ KS2

Every Monday, class teachers will upload a weekly schedule to Seesaw. This will include daily lessons in line with our 'Daily Expectations' document above.

Teachers will upload pre-recorded teaching clips, teaching slides, audio explanations, worksheets, activities, challenges and links to other websites to support children's learning. The times on the daily schedules are just guidance - you can spend less or more time on each activity (depending what your child needs) and you can do the activities in any order. It is vital that each day's learning is carried out, as lessons are progressive and each day builds on the day before.

All children have been provided with an English exercise book, a maths excercise book and a topic exercise book as well as the basic stationary needed. If you require any additional resources, let us know and we will try our best to help you.

Teachers and Teaching Assistants monitor Seesaw throughout the day. Feedback will be offered to the children for work they upload to their portfolio.

home learning sites

Seesaw will be the primary tool for setting work during this period. The staff may also signpost to other sites below for different activities.

Anyone who has difficulties in accessing the curriculum through the internet should contact school and we will work with you to support your child’s remote learning.
