Home Learning 

The Department of Education has asked schools to provide adapted education provision to pupils who are medically certified as being at very high risk to Covid-19.

For a list of such high risk conditions please click here.

This adapted education provision does not apply to pupils who are:

  • at risk of early school leaving

  • experiencing COVID-related anxiety about the return to school

  • requested to self-isolate by a medical doctor or the HSE

But what happens if my child has been requested to self-isolate for a short time?

The Department of Education says that "From time to time, a number of pupils may be required to self-isolate for a short time on foot of medical advice. It is not expected that these pupils would be educated through adapted education provision during this time. Instead, schools should, at a minimum, ensure that these pupils are supported to catch up with their learning on their return to school" (page 12 of Department Guidelines)
