School will provide remote learning either through Google Classrooms or by delivering paper copies of learning each week. If your child can access Google classrooms this will be great as there will be lessons on there to help them learn.
The government expects all children to complete learning at home-we will support you with this. The children will be completing the same learning that will be taking place in school.
We will put guides on how to use Google classroom on our website and a link on our Facebook page.
- Your child’s class teacher will email you a timetable overview for the week-this will also be -can complete learning in a different order if this is easier for you and your child.
- If your child can access Google classroom there will be at least daily google meets where they can talk to their class teacher and some of their friends. Most children have used this in school- your child’s teacher can email you the login details if you need them.
- If your child cannot access Google meets the teacher will ring you every day to speak to your child is and how they are getting on with their learning and to help them if they are stuck.
- If work is completed and saved on Google classroom teachers and teaching assistants will give your child guidance and feedback on work, they have completed
- If your child is using paper copies we will collect these on a Monday when we deliver new learning. Work will be marked and teachers will give your children feedback to support their learning. If you are able to you can email in photos of your child’s work as they complete it.
- If your child is finding any aspect of the learning difficult please let your child’s class teacher know and they can change what they had planned for them.
- If you need any resources to help your child learn at home, please email your child’s teacher or the office in the first instance.

I hope you and your families are safe and well. As you may have seen some primary schools will only be open for keyworkers and vulnerable children from next Tuesday until at least 18th January. and this includes our school. Monday is an INSET day where teachers will be preparing learning for children that will not be coming into school.
Pre-school will be open as normal in line with the new guidance.
Vulnerable children include the following and these children can come to school as normal:- children in care, adopted children, children with a social worker or intensive family support worker, children with an EHCP, children who have SEN-special educational needs and any child who will find accessing learning at home difficult.
Keyworker children are those parents as in the first lockdown-if you are unsure please contact me. Breakfast club and after school club will be open as normal.
If your child is not in school and is eligible for free school meals based on benefits you receive, we will be delivering lunches as in the first lockdown as we have a caterer on site-vouchers are only for the holidays.
We use google classrooms to deliver learning from home and plan to share a video of how to use this on our website and Facebook page next week. If your child will be at home and you would rather have paper copies of learning please email your child's class teacher on Monday so that they can organise this for you. If children are at home then there is an expectation from the government that they complete learning- if they are using google classroom the work is saved on there, paper copies will be collected in and stuck in their books in school at the end of the week or on the Monday when we deliver new learning. If you feel your child will not be able to access learning at home then they are able to come into school as explained above.
Children that come to school will be in their classroom with their teacher and learning will follow thier normal timetable of lessons-similar learning will be provided for children at home.
I will send any further updates on Monday.
