COVID19 Return and Recovery

COVID-19: RETURN AND RECOVERY

 

All children have been welcomed back into school in autumn 2020.

 

Changes at school

We are delighted that all children are now back at school. Children are taught by their class teacher and a small team of support staff are with each class ‘bubble’. Here are some helpful documents  to help you to understand the precautions we are taking to ensure the safety and well-being of children in school.

Our Recovery plan

We know that our children need time to adjust and recover from the impact of Covid-19 on their lives and their education. We have carefully considered how we will do this in our Recovery Curriculum plan.

Our home learning plan (in the event of year group/school closure)

 

We are currently not providing home learning resources as all children are required to attend school. However, should there be a local or national reason for school to close we would resume our home learning offer as below:

  •  Our teachers will provide a daily timetable of activities supported with resources, videos and suggested websites.
  • Please note that if there are any issues with access at the home, where possible The School will give full support wherever possible, including sending work home physically.
  • Your child’s class web page will provide links to the learning. The school website will continue to provide links to wider-curriculum activities and helpful websites. There are also links to ideas and activities that will support your child’s mental health and well-being.
  • Your child’s class teacher will continue to be contactable throughout the term via email to answer your questions about home learning.
  • Please continue to share learning where you are able to with the class teacher. This will enable the teachers to view your child’s work and provide comments and feedback to them. We expect all children to ‘have a go’ with their home learning.
  • We will also provide access to school Collective Worship and celebration assemblies.
  • We will aim to give individual feedback a minimum of twice per week. General feedback may be given to the whole class.
  • All of our children also have access to Times Table Rock Stars / Numbots and Spelling Shed. Please let us know if you have lost your password and need us to reset it.  All pupils will also be encouraged to spend 30 minutes a day reading.

 

In addition: 

 

Special Needs: For children with special educational needs and/or medical needs, we realise this will have an impact on how Education Health and Care Plans are delivered. Extra attention will be given to meeting the individual needs of children and young people with SEND and their families in the event of school closure or partial school closure.

 

We do recognise that health and wellbeing are paramount and we appreciate that the level of work that might be undertaken by a child will reflect the situation and circumstances at home.

 

Note: If a single child or small group of children are isolating for extended periods whilst their year group is still attending school, for example whilst awaiting test results, then work will be sent home by the class teacher that is the same or similar to that being covered in class by their peers.
