Excellent attendance at school is linked to better academic progress and attainment by ensuring pupils access a broad, balanced and knowledge-rich curriculum.
Plymstock School will provide learning remotely in circumstances when in-person attendance is either not possible or contrary to government guidance.
This might include:
• occasions when the Headteacher decides that it is not possible for the setting to open safely, or that opening would contradict guidance from local or central government
• occasions when whole Year groups or individual students, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school but are able to continue learning, for example pupils with an infectious illness or extreme staffing issues
In these circumstances, students should have access to remote education as soon as reasonably practicable, in proportion to the length of absence and disruption to their learning. Our teaching staff will endeavour to provide remote education equivalent in length to the core teaching students would receive in school.
