The temporary provisions in the Coronavirus Act 2020 expired on 24 March 2022. As a result the Remote Education (England) Temporary Continuity (No.2) direction no longer has effect.
Lytham Hall Park has adopted the non-statutory guidance to schools on maintaining their capabilities to deliver high quality remote education in cases where it is not possible or contrary to government guidance for some or all pupils to attend face-to-face education.
The priority should always be for schools to deliver high-quality face-to-face education to all pupils. Remote education should only ever be considered as a short-term measure and as a last resort where in person attendance is not possible.
Scenarios where remote education should be provided
Attendance is mandatory for all pupils of compulsory school age. Schools should consider providing remote education to pupils in circumstances when in-person attendance is either not possible or contrary to government guidance.
This might include:
occasions when school leaders decide that it is not possible for their setting, or part of their setting, to open safely, or that opening would contradict guidance from local or central government
This documents outlines to parents Lytham Hall Park's approach to remote education.
