All pupils at the Whitefield Academy Trust will receive a personalised remote learning offer if they are spending periods of term-time at home due to COVID-19. Your child’s teacher will have been in contact with you to discuss the individual plan for your child and this may include; online sessions, learning tasks presented through Google Classroom or physical resources sent home. Please contact your child’s teacher or the Family Support Team if you have any questions about the remote learning activities provided for your child.
