Main Information

Dear Parents,

As we move into this Advent term we are keenly aware that there may be periods of time when school learning is disrupted for our children. We are therefore making plans to ensure that no learning time is lost.

These plans cover two scenarios. Scenario 1, where your child or a family member receive news of a positive test and your child is not in school for 14 days. Scenario 2, where there is a positive test of a pupil or adult in school which results in a bubble being shut down and the whole bubble has to isolate at home.

Scenario 1 (your child is off school, but is well with no symptoms due to a positive test in the immediate family.)

We will use Class Dojo each day to send the work home that your child would have been doing. We will also send a Zoom link so that your child can see live teaching from their teacher at different times throughout the day. In this case it would be compulsory that an adult is with your child throughout their use of the Zoom lesson.

We will provide all children with a Home Learning exercise book for them to record their work. We will also insist that the work done is uploaded on to Class Dojo so that we can provide feedback and assess your child’s understanding.

Scenario 2 (the bubble has been closed down and all learning is remote)

In this case we will ask that all children, who are well, follow the class timetable which we will upload on to this area of the website. This will direct their work throughout the day. Maths work will be through the use of White Rose, which everyone should be familiar with, it includes video lessons. We will also use “The Oak Academy” recorded lessons for English and Topic work. RE lessons will be uploaded onto Dojo and will be provided by your class teacher, they will be from the Diocesan “Come and See,” programme. All of the material you will need to follow your child’s timetable will be provided.

Please have a look at look at the guidance below to help you decide if your child should be at school or not.
