Home Learning - Information for Parents

Dear Parents,


Home Learning


We understand that home learning will be new for many of you, and we will be working our usual contracted hours to support you, unless re-deployed, self-isolated or unwell.  Next week each Pod will be contacting you via a group email.  (We have used the email you have provided to school).  Pod staff will also use Twitter to let you know when new work and activities are available for pupils.   All work will be electronic.


We have decided not to offer guidance on how you should structure your “learning day” as we believe that you are best placed to decide when and if activities should be undertaken.  However, if you would like some suggestions, these will be available on the class pages. Please note, we will not expect everything to be completed, and you have our full support to make the right home learning decisions in these difficult times. 


Each Pod will provide information on the learning that will be appropriate and familiar to your child and their age and stage of learning.


Staff will be setting work and activities through your child’s Hwb Account and the school website (Class Page).  They will be doing their very best to keep a routine, however, there may be times that due to illness or circumstances out of our control that this may not be possible.


Staff will give pupils’ feedback only when it is appropriate and possible to do so.


You have already received a letter from Mrs Jones regarding “Home Learning Literacy” which is still available on the website  Mr Dowsett is currently working hard to develop a numeracy letter of support that will be available on Monday.  We are also trying to set up an additional on-line numeracy support for all learners.  But don’t worry we will keep you fully updated and informed. 


Contacting us – Temporary System from Monday 23rd March 2020


Our school is committed to staying in contact with parents during this difficult time.  For this reason, while the school is closed, staff emails may be used for contact during school closure)  Please only use this when necessary.  Staff will do their best to answer in a timely fashion, however there may be times that due to illness or circumstances out of our control that this may not be possible.
