January 2021 - Message from Mrs Morley
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.
