Remote Tutoring Initiative — Sanidas Academy

Howard Primary offers a remote learning platform for all our pupils to use in the event that they are unable to come into school due to COVID-19. If we are required to close a year group bubble or if individual pupils need to self-isolate due to COVID, learning will move to Google Classroom. We will provide a range of lessons which will include assignments and quizzes that your child will need to complete and "hand in" for teachers to review. Google Classroom is also being used to set homework for all pupils.

We have included some helpful information for you below, however if you require additional support, please contact class teachers by email or a member of Senior Leadership at

How to hand in work on Google Classroom:

What should I do if my child needs to self isolate?

You will need to log into google classroom using the log-in details already provided to you. Your child will be able to complete work that will already have been set for that week by their class teacher. Your child should only complete this work if they are well enough to do so.

What should I do if the year group bubble is asked to stay at home?
