School Re-opening documentation
Re-opening Wellbeing Documentation
‘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.
Following the unprecedented closure of schools due to COVID-19 we sent out home learning via email and the school website for each Year group. We also aquired an online learning platform called Seesaw where class teachers were able to share learning, communicate and give feedback individually to their pupils.
The Government of Jersey has also provided additional documentation to support parents during this time which you can find below:

Special Educational Needs
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:
Please fill in the form below to request a students absence. You will receive an email telling you if the request has been approved.
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:
- Adequate notice is required for applications to be processed.
- Holiday bookings should not be confirmed prior to gaining approval.
- All applications should be made in writing, on the form above, to the Headteacher.
The school appreciates that some parents are unable to take holiday leave during the school holidays and may wish to apply for holiday leave for their child/ren. Such requests should be balanced against the requirement to attend school and the need to complete curriculum work. Whilst on holiday in term time it is parents’ responsibility to ensure appropriate study is completed by their child.
There will be certain times when holiday requests will not be granted e.g. during exam time, poor attendance record. If request for holiday leave is declined parents have the right to appeal to the Director of Education.
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.
