At Blackfield Primary School we understand how important it is to be able to offer a high quality remote education to our children who are not attending school due to a period of self-isolation or in the event of a national lockdown.
Children will use online learning platforms which are familiar to them and that they know how to navigate. Our teachers design learning to replicate the in-school experience as best as possible and for children to be independent where they can be, depending on the age and stage of the child.
Here you will find our Remote Education Offer:
