It is essential students continue to receive high quality teaching and learning should a class, group or small number of students need to self-isolate, or should there be  a local or national lockdown that requires students to remain at home.

At TCOLC we are committed to providing a remote learning strategy, that is both challenging, engaging and facilitates excellent student progress. The following policy addendum outlines the expectations and safeguarding procedures for all students accessing on-line live lessons and for all teachers delivering these lessons.

Remote learning letter to Parents/Carers

Remote Learning Policy (Addendum to ICT Policy – January 2020)

parent/carer remote learning survey

It has been lovely to hear about the positive examples of remote learning and words of encouragement and thanks from our parents and students.

We believe it is essential that we take the opportunity to gather early feedback about the remote learning experience your chid has been receiving so that we can refine our model if needed.  Please take a moment to complete the survey link below, as the more quality feedback we receive the more refinements we can make to our remote learning offer.

The link will go live at midnight on 14 January and will close at 11.45pm on Friday 22 January.




There are lots of resources to support you online 

If you need access to laptops for online learning, it may be possible for us to lend you a device for the duration of the school closure. If you need to enquire about this then please contact with your request.
