The Coronavirus Act 2020 and provision of remote education (England) temporary continuity (no. 2) direction expired on 24 March 2022 meaning that schools no longer have a legal duty to provide remote education. As such, we will no longer update our online learning platforms (listed below) with new remote learning on a weekly basis. However, we will aim to provide work for families where children are having to isolate but are well enough to work, at their request.

The requirement for pupils to stay off school if they test positive for Covid-19 has changed several times in recent months and much of the previous guidance has been withdrawn.

The latest NHS guidance (last checked 1st May 2022) states:

If a child or young person aged 18 or under tests positive for COVID-19, they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days. This starts from the day after they did the test.

Children and young people tend to be infectious to others for less time than adults. If they’re well and do not have a temperature after 3 days, there’s a much lower risk that they’ll pass on COVID-19 to others.


At Westdene, we use the following online learning platforms as part of our curriculum, including for homework in some year groups: 

Help pages for The WOMBLE and Google Classroom are available on the school website, under the Learning tab.
