After The Prime Minister's announcement that schools will fully reopen on 8th March 2021, we were kept very busy ensuring that all the systems and procedures were in place for the safe return of ALL pupils on Monday 8th March.
We have really enjoyed having everyone back into school. Please see below, in Files to Download, the new Risk Assessment and Recovery Plan for the full opening of school on Monday 8th March.
During this current national lockdown, schools are required to publish arrangements for providing remote learning provision for pupils. This can also be found in Files to Download
Should pupils be required to stay at home due to the need to self-isolate or because they hve been advised to shield, the key messages for remote leaning will continue to be:
- Work between home and School will be managed via Tapestry (Nursery and Reception), Seesaw (Years 1-6). Each pupil will have a unique log on and work shared will only be seen by the pupil and their class teacher.
- Feedback will continue to be given to pupils after their work has been submitted via Tapestry or Seesaw. The amount of feedback will be dependent on how many children are learning remotely
- Tasks will be set on a daily basis in maths and English. Tasks in other curricular areas, which may include projects and assignments, will also be set..
- Children should continue to practise knowledge of times tables and reading on a daily basis.
- Mathematics work will be mainly supported by the White Rose Scheme of Learning which will provide useful resources such as video links.
- All pupils will require access to an internet-connected device. If this presents problems, parents should contact school at the earliest opportunity.
Useful links to support learning at home:
Oak National Academy is a new collection of high-quality lessons and online resources. Backed by the Government, it has been created in response to the coronavirus lockdown. Our teachers may suggest if and how this online classroom is used, perhaps alongside any existing work.
