Remote Learning



During all periods of Remote Learning, Sebastopol Primary School aims to be flexible in how we teach our students.  Parents and carers can only request on-site supervision at school for their child/ren in the below categories:

  • Category A: children where both parents and or carers are considered authorised workers who cannot work from home, work for an authorised provider and where no other supervision arrangements can be made. Where there are two parents/carers, both must be authorised workers, working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision at school. For single parents/ carers, the authorised worker must be working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision at school. Parents and carers who are authorised workers will need an authorised worker permit from their employers to access on-site supervision for their child/ren in Category A. For those requesting on-site learning under Category A, a copy of your authorised worker permit or permits must be submitted to our school as soon as practicable after it is issued.
  • Category B: children experiencing vulnerability, including:
    • in out-of-home care
    • deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and assessed as requiring education and care outside the family home
    • identified by a school or early childhood service as vulnerable, (including via referral from a government agency, or funded family or family violence service, homeless or youth justice service or mental health or other health service)
    • where a parent/carer indicates that a student with a disability is vulnerable because they cannot learn from home, and/or informs the school the student is vulnerable due to family stress, the school must provide on-site supervision for that student. This may apply to students enrolled in specialist schools and students with a disability enrolled in mainstream schools. An authorised worker permit is not required for accessing on-site supervision under Category B.


To obtain an Onsite Supervision Request form, please contact the Principal.


Remote Learning at Sebastopol Primary School

Remote Learning can be daunting for many individuals but please remember that no one expects you to be a subject matter expert or teacher.  The most important thing you can do is to continue to provide comfort, support and encouragement to your child.  You can help your child to learn from home by working with their school and supporting your child as they undertake the activities provided by their teachers.


There will be some lessons where teachers will be online (using Microsoft Teams or WebEx) and engage with students, other lessons will be completing tasks independently.  It is expected that even if you are not working to your exact timetable each day that students have contacted their classroom teacher each morning by 9.30am and submit work each week.  Teachers will be following up any students who have not completed or submitted anything and documenting it.  This will allow parents, teachers and educational support staff to support students who are struggling.  To access our online platforms, please click on the relevant icon below.
