Home Learning

This page has been created to inform parents about remote learning at Overdale Infants. 

The Department for Education has asked all schools to publish information about our remote education provision.

On this page, you will find the online learning for all of our classes.

These activities will guide you to links on external webpages or on our own video portal. The video portal has our wonderful videos created by our staff to support your child's home learning. 

If you have any questions or need any help please email or complete the contact form below and a member of the team will be able to support you. 

Look after each other and make sure you have fun!

We have created a Remote Education Guide for parents. This explains our remote learning offer as well as the differences in provision between whole year group bubbles and individual pupils having to self-isolate.
