Remote Education

Online provision for The Meadows Primary School children learning at home

During periods of self-isolation – whether waiting for test results or monitoring symptoms – or national lockdown, it is important that children have support to continue their education while they are at home, as long as they are well enough to do so.

A detailed summary of our remote education offer when a class or year group is self-isolating can be found here. Please see our Q&A document here for more detailed information about what parents and carers can expect from remote education if government restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.

Please follow the links below to find three daily lessons to support your child's learning at home. Children can then share what they do via Tapestry or Seesaw. The login details remain the same as before. Please contact if there are any issues with this.

Oak National Academy

These are free online lessons across a variety of UK school curriculum subjects. Please choose the appropriate year group and then select the day of the week.
