If your child is unable to attend school for any reason related to COVID-19, we are able to support you in establishing a home learning routine straight away. We know that circumstances at home vary so we are aiming to provide a range of resources to support families. Our year group pages contain blogs that provide information about our current curriculum whilst the other tabs in our home learning hub provide a range of useful resources.

Here are some of the ways home learning can be established to meet your needs:

  • If you wish to establish your own home learning routine and have online access, we recommend the resources at Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize. Both of these sites allow you to follow a daily schedule or search for resources yourself. They provide high quality video teaching alongside clear explanations and print resources that match the National Curriculum. In most cases the print resources can be viewed online and competed using paper or a notebook. School can provide any stationery needed at no cost. Please contact us if this is required.

  • School is able to provide scheduled work that matches the National Curriculum, using an online platform. We are currently using Purple Mash for this provision. When your child logs in they will find work within their 2Email and also by looking at the alerts tab for updates. This online work includes video material (from Oak National Academy, BBC Bitesize and other sources) alongside other digital resources (such as online quizzes, Purple Mash activities, White Rose Maths resources and others). Work set through an online platform needs to be submitted digitally (including the completion of daily online tasks and the uploading of photos or videos of offline tasks to the platform). If you require any stationery to complete offline tasks please contact school as required.

  • If you do not have online access to allow your child to complete online tasks, we are able to provide printed workbooks for English and maths alongside any other necessary stationery. We are able to provide these print resources immediately and at no cost, simply contact school directly as required.


In some specific circumstances we may be able to offer support with technology and online access (for example through the government digital devices scheme for disadvantaged children/those in shielding families). Please contact school directly to explore the options. 


If you need any advice or support to establish home learning due to COVID-19, please contact school directly by telephoning 0151 924 1704 or emailing admin.ursuline@schools.sefton.gov.uk
