Teachers will set work on Google Classroom for their classes - attempting to match with the work being covered in school as much as possible.
Teachers are working with the children of Critical Workers and those deemed vulnerable. Teaching assistants will be online from 9am-12.30pm every day to support with remote learning. Please make sure the children log in and staff can then see how to offer support.
Some of the remote learning will be tasks the children can complete away from their devices as it is important they do not sit in front of a screen all day long. Encourage them to be active and creative too - we love to see pictures of their activities. We have sent home resource packs which include items that can support the remote learning as well as some printed worksheets that the children can do alongside their online work.
If we have a confirmed case of coronavirus in school we will most likely have to send all the children in that class 'bubble' home to isolate for 14 days to stop the spread of infection.
Remote learning will then be ready for the whole class. Teachers will also be isolating, so will be at home, online to support the children.
If you need a device to allow them access to Google Classroom, please contact the school for support.
Children who are self-isolating because they, or a member of their household, is waiting for the results of a COVID test, will be able to get a pack of work from school to complete at home.
Statement on re-opening of schools
We have been open for some children all the way through the Covid-19 lockdown and feel confident that the hygiene measures we have in place have worked to keep us all safe.
We have updated a risk assessment to take into account more children in the building in September - see below. This will be updated as new information or new protocols are issued.
A few reminders:
* All children will start at 8.55am and finish at 3.15pm.
* Years 1, 3, 4, 6 will enter through their classroom fire doors and there will be an adult at the door to meet them with hand sanitiser before they enter the school.
* Year 2 and 5 will use the cloakroom entrances where they will be met by staff...and sanitiser!
* Small book bags only, please as they need to keep all their belongings in the classrooms.
* Children will come to school in their PE kit on the days they have PE to avoid needing to change in school.
* Early Bird and After School Clubs will operate as usual from 8am until 5pm. Breakfast will be available too.
* Children will not be wearing face coverings in school.
Parents, please keep social distancing rules in the playground when you are dropping off and collecting children. We ask that only one parent collects or drops off, to keep the number of adults in the playground as low as possible.
It is essential that children are able to follow the systems and routines around school to reduce the risks for everyone. The appendix to the Behaviour Policy outlines our expectations around this.
We have been working hard to make sure that school will look and feel as normal as possible. Please help us by reassuring your child about coming back to school.
We can't wait to see you all again.
Please have a look at the resources below to support your child's return.
