During periods of lockdown and school closure Wigton Infant School will be providing children and parents with home learning activities and engagement. The class teachers will use the platforms that parents should already be familiar with as they are used regularly in the normal course of our teaching and learning.
The school has a Remote learning policy which can be found below.
We will also direct parents to learning opportunities and resources that can be found online to supplement home learning activities. Again, please see below for the most up to date list.
And here's a thought for you - what better way to inspire your children in their home learning than to do some home learning yourself! Follow this link for a wide range of free and inexpensive online courses from Cumbria County Council:
