Home-school work (updated)

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we are gradually beginning our phased return to school, I am writing to reassure you all that we are committed to ensuring the continued provision of teaching and learning for all of our pupils, whether they are in school or at home.

When teachers are back in school, their class will be covered by another member of staff thus ensuring continued access to support.  We ask that parents bear this in mind when contacting teachers.  From 1st June – 22nd June, the table below shows which members of staff are in school teaching:

Please note that this timetable is subject to change should we have staff illness.

Our intention is that we maintain provision for all subjects, focusing on the use of rich text drivers in English and the maths mastery approach to mathematics.  We will also continue to make the following websites available to you and your child/children.

We are now using Microsoft Teams to communicate with the vast majority of our pupils while some receive work packs in paper copies, or electronic versions via email/Class Dojo – whichever works best for each family.  We continue to have weekly video calls with children, or phone calls where families do not use Teams.  All work packs have accompanying voice-over Power Point presentations so that children are supported in their learning as much as possible.  Where extra support is needed, this is provided throughout the day.

Our weekly newsletter continues to provide information for all parents and pupils, as well as a celebration of work achieved throughout the week.  Please look at our school newsletters for a history of what our wonderful children have been up to during lockdown.  Our class pages also showcase some of the work achieved.

We would like to extend our gratitude to all of our families for their continued support during this difficult time and reassure you all that we will continue to do we can to support your child/children under these challenging circumstances.

Warmest wishes,

Alison Bellingham, Headteacher
