Remote Education

“We felt so supported during lockdown.  The online team-point challenges and the communication was brilliant.  We still felt connected and part of the school community despite the lockdown and not attending.”

“Thank you Balshaw Lane for all your help, support, guidance, reassurance and positivity throughout 2020.  Your communication and organization has been outstanding.”

 “School did an amazing job of keeping children connected over lockdown while providing lots of support.”

 “The school’s response to the pandemic has been excellent.”

“Throughout lockdown the support, updates and teaching via Twitter and the Seesaw app has been phenomenal.  We couldn’t ask for more.”

Parents' Questionnaire comments

During the Covid-19 lockdowns, the school provided remote education (home learning) for all children.

The provision took a variety of forms but included:

  • live teaching via Teams
  • work set and monitored via Seesaw
  • Zoom sessions with the class
  • wellbeing activities eg online games and quizzes
  • individual or family contact


We provided the same service when classes or year groups had to self-isolate as a bubble.

The school is ready to provide this again in 2021-22 if required.


Please see the attached information to for more detail about our remote education provision.
