Update: 13th December 2021

Home Learning Changes

At our staff meeting last week, we met as a team and have revised our home learning provision for pupils absent from school for COVID related reasons (seeking a PCR as a close contact or showing COVID symptoms, positive LFT / PCR or self-isolating due to sibling or parents testing positive ). There is no expectation to complete home learning if your child is poorly. 

New COVID Home Learning Provision 

  • If your child is not well, please do not try and complete home learning or attend Teams meetings
  • If a pupil is awaiting a PCR result (up to first 48 hours), teachers will send White Rose link and / or BBC Bitesize links for maths; BBC Bitesize for English; Spelling Shed and Reading – this learning will not be marked by a teacher 
  • Year R and 1 will be sent the link to a One Drive file, which will contain up to 2 weeks of Home Learning 
  • If a pupil tests positive and/ or is isolating for 10 days, a daily maths link will be emailed (White Rose or a relevant consolidation activity) and an invitation to join the class for English via Teams (with any resources needed sent through in advance). Children should continue practising their Spelling Shed lists, daily reading, Reading Tools pages in their reading logs and tables practice. 
  • Children not appearing on Teams meeting will receive a check-in phone call from their teacher or the Headteacher
  • If your child tests positive or is self-isolating for 10 days, please email the office with a link suitable for your TEAMS invitations to go to so that this can be set up quickly
  • COVID pages on this website may be accessed as required for foundation subjects.
