If your child has a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss of taste or smell, then the COVID-19 guidelines for schools state that your child must stay at home and not come to school. If any member of the household has a temperature, new continuous cough or loss of taste or smell then all members of the household should stay at home. It is important that, in both of these circumstances, you contact ‘NHS Test and Trace’ for advice to enable your family to book a test as quickly as possible. This will ensure that your child can return to school when advised and not miss lots of key learning opportunities.
At Netley Abbey Junior School, we strive to support parents and their children in the event of self-isolation, to deliver an education which reflects that happening in school and is responsive to every child’s needs.
Please see our Remote Education Policy for further information.

In the event of self-isolation or a positive test, the school is obliged to provide more detailed home learning. The first two days of learning looks different from our standard approach, this will give your child’s class teacher time to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
Following these two days, we will aim to teach your child the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects.

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. If this is the case, please contact our school office to discuss other options for your child.
We also understand that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to provide access arrangements where necessary. Please contact Jo McCusker via our school office to discuss your child’s individual needs and how we can support them at home.
