In the case of school closure or children isolating due to either showing Covid-19 symptoms or being in contact with someone who has tested positive, remote learning is in place.
At De Lucy, we have established four different scenarios which would trigger remote learning:
- Scenario 1 – Individual child self-isolating due to showing symptoms/waiting for a test results/member of household showing symptoms/member of household tested positive/advised to self-isolate due to close contact with someone who has tested positive. Class teacher still in school teaching remaining pupils.
- Scenario 2- Due to medical advice, child is shielding. Medical evidence provided to school.
- Scenario 3 – A bubble pops! A bubble is self –isolating, along with class teacher for 14 days
- Scenario 4 – Full lockdown – school closed to onsite learning to all.
From Monday 4th January 2021 - Friday 5th March (TBC) the school is currently operating under Scenario 4.

The Education Act 1996 states, - “It remains a parent’s duty to ensure that their child of compulsory school age receives a suitable education in whatever way they can under section 7 of the Act and state-funded schools are required to provide remote education to pupils who are not attending in certain circumstances by virtue of the Coronavirus Act 2020 Provision of Remote Education (England) Temporary Continuity Direction 2020 made on 30th September 2020”.
