Coronavirus and School

Advice to all parents – single case

Inevitably, we will have children off school for a few days up to a couple of weeks due to coronavirus, whether it be due to the need to self isolate while awaiting a test result or having come in contact with a positive case or due to having the virus themselves.  We wanted to ensure everyone knew about blended learning, which is how we will provide learning opportunities on a daily basis, which mirror closely the learning that is happening at school in the classroom.  This means that if your child is absent from school due to a covid-related cause, they will be offered access to this blended learning.  Children throughout school (with the exception of EYFS) have been accessing Google Classroom this week and running through the functions again in preparation for accessing their learning remotely should the need arise.  Children in EYFS will continue their learning journey remotely via Tapestry.

In the case of a child being ill with Covid-19, or the case of any other illness, we would NOT expect a child to access the blended learning offer, unless he or she becomes fit and well again but unable to return to school until the 10 days of isolation are over.  We would be grateful if parents of pupils who have been ill with Covid and recovered would contact us at the point at which they feel their child is ready to access the blended learning during their isolation. 

We have had a few questions from parents and carers about what action to take and when in terms of illness in children this term.  Hopefully the image below will be helpful.

We will update this webpage and will also contact parents via Parent Hub and email as and when new information is available.  


We take safeguarding very seriously at Hady Primary School. If you are concerned that a child is suffering or is at risk of significant harm please contact Call Derbyshire on tel: 01629 533190 immediately.
