National Lockdown Provision for January and February
Our school will be closed from Tuesday 5th January for most children. We have worked hard as a team to plan and prepare for the remote learning and keyworker places for this half term. All of the information that you will need can be found on this page.
We can offer places to children of keyworkers and some other pupils (eg SEN pupils), following the DfE Guidance:
Primary, secondary, alternative provision and special schools will remain open to vulnerable children and young people and the children of critical workers only (recognising that the characteristics of the cohorts in special schools and alternative provision will mean these settings can continue to offer face-to-face provision for all pupils, where appropriate). All other pupils should not attend and should learn remotely until February half-term. Pupils who are self-isolating should not attend school. Clinically extremely vulnerable pupils are also advised not to attend school.
Parents whose work is critical to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and EU transition response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors outlined in the guidance. Children with at least one parent or carer who is a critical worker can attend school or college if required, but parents and carers should keep their children at home if they can.
Remote Learning for pupils
Our children will receive a full remote learning programme using Google Classroom as our online learning platform. All pupils have received their log in details and have practised using this at school. Learning will include live lessons each day with a teacher, plus videos of lessons and activities. Children will have a number of activities to carry out in order to keep their learning progressing through this half term. The timings of the live lessons are set out in the table below. We have set times so that we do not clash between different year groups, which allows siblings to attend live lessons each day and to spread the other learning activities in a way which will fit in for each family.
We can also provide paper work packs on request for those children who require them. Please contact the school to arrange the collection of these.
We will continue to look after the welfare of all of our children. Pupils who are eligible for free school meals will receive vouchers to support you at home. If you have any concerns then please contact Mrs Aslam our Attendance and Welfare Officer using the details in the Family Welfare tab
Spring Term Learning Packs
In the event of any children having to isolate at home, we will once again prepare learning packs and put these on Google Classrooms. Children will be able to access these as paper copies if required. Please contact the school office if you require the loan of a laptop during the isolation period or paper copies of work.
