Home Learning – Contingency Planning

If we experience a local lockdown or a child or class needs to self-isolate, we will provide home learning using Microsoft Teams.

You can log on your child’s account here

The City of Edinburgh Council has provided parents with the home learning grids (posted on your child’s team). These should only be used if your child requires to self-isolate at home or if we experience school closures. There is a home learning grid for each year group for week 1 and for week 2 of self-isolation or school closure. Please do not use these home learning grids unless your child is self-isolating or there is a school closure.
