Remote Learning provision 

If your child tests positive for Covid-19, please inform our Attendance Office, Mrs Evans, as soon as possible by email at or by telephone on 0161 973  1179 ext *2238.

A lateral flow test should be taken on the morning of day 5 and on the morning of day 6, and if both test results are negative, your child should return to school on day 6.  If the results of either of their tests is positive, they should continue to self-isolate until they get negative results from two lateral flow tests on consecutive days or until they have completed 10 full days of self-isolation, whichever is earliest.


On receipt of notification of a positive result, your child will be added to the home learning classroom; this may take 24 hours to come online as Satchel updates every 24 hours at midnight.  Subject related work will be uploaded to Satchel on a regular basis. This will not match the pupil timetable as lesson tasks are uploaded throughout the week. Please monitor your child’s work-stream on a smartphone through the Satchel App, or on a computer through the Satchel website.

Request a Digital Device

Request a digital device for your child

Ashton on Mersey School is working hard to ensure that all of our pupils have a suitable device and internet access to complete their remote learning. School can currently provide devices for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding.

A suitable device is:

  • A laptop computer or similar device like a ChromeBook.
  • A desktop computer

What is not a suitable device:

  • A Smartphone like an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy
  • The majority of work can be completed on an iPad or similar tablet, although producing long pieces of written work on this kind of device can be extremely difficult. We, therefore, recommend that pupils request a device if they only have access to a tablet.

How to request a device:

Please contact your head of year.
