The purpose of this policy is to provide guidelines for students, their parents and staff with regard to the use of technology when learning remotely, i.e. from a place other than school when it is not possible for the teacher to teach in a classroom setting. This Remote Learning Policy was created as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and to the resultant increase in the use of technology to facilitate learning. This policy does not replace, but rather operates alongside our Acceptable Use Policies, our Mobile Phone and Electronic Device Policy and all other relevant policies at St-Mary's Primary School (e.g. Code of Behaviour).
