School Re-opening documentation

Home Learning

‘Learning At Home’ is a website created by the Government of Jersey Department for Children, Young People Education and Skills in response to feedback from parents.

The website aims to work alongside schools to support parents with information about learning and school life; the ‘Latest Updates’ section helps parents to know about key events occurring in Education or in partner organisations across the Island.

The website now includes suggested learning resources for parents to use with their children, some parental guidance and information, as well as engaging activities to enjoy together at home.

You can access the website here.

SAFEGUARDING

Safer recruitment is the process that occurs to ensure we detect and reject those who may apply to work with children for sinister reasons. The policy covers paid and unpaid (volunteer) appointments, permanent or non-permanent. Recruiting managers have a responsibility to follow policy and the DBS Enhanced Disclosure with Barred List is part of this process. Supply teachers and supply teaching assistants must all go through the process.

Jersey Premium Application Forms:

Request Absence

Please complete the 'Absence Request' form below to request a student's absence. You will need to submit this form to the school office via email or in person.

It is ESC policy that children should attend school unless they are unwell or if the absence is unavoidable through circumstances beyond the family’s control. Current guidance states that leave will not be granted unless there are exceptional circumstances which might justify authorisation. In order to obtain permission parents are reminded that:

  1. Adequate notice is required for applications to be processed.
  2. Holiday bookings should not be confirmed prior to gaining approval.
  3. All applications should be made in writing, on the form above, to the Headteacher.

Leave during term time

The Education Department does not support (holiday) leave during term time.

You do not have the automatic right to withdraw your child from school. You must request permission in advance from your school's head teacher. You must make a strong case to justify your head teacher's decision to allow your child to be away from school during term time.

Your child's absence from school will disrupt the continuity of their learning.

Schools are required to report attendance figures which are carefully monitored. A child’s absence during term time can seriously disrupt their continuity of learning with the consequent risk of underachievement. You will therefore understand the careful consideration we need to give these requests.
