It is so important to us here at Gorsefield Primary School that children are accessing full time high-quality education in school, via home learning or a mixed mode approach. Here at Gorsefield, we are fully prepared for this.

As a school we have producing detailed plans and polices for remote education so that children will have access to a high quality education at home.

The documents are listed below, please click the link to view:

  • Home Learning Protocol
  • Gorsefield Remote Education Expectations
  • Remote Learning Policy
  • Appendix 1 Remote Learning

The main source of communication between the school and home when remote education is taking place is:

SeeSaw/ Teams for children to teachers

gorsefield@bury.gov.uk parents to teachers
