We will be providing remote learning for the majority of children. This will start from Tuesday January 5th (Monday 4th remains an Inset day). Your child's teacher/year group will be in contact with families on Monday 4th to confirm arrangements for live lessons/timetables.
Children in Years 2 to 6 will receive their remote learning via Teams. We aim for all children from Years 2 to 6 to have a live lesson on Tuesday 5th and you will be informed of the timetable for the rest of the week. Children should have a minimum of 7 live lessons a week and 15 hours of work.
Children should use the yellow wallets that were sent home last term. Teacher's will let you know what they need handed in or uploaded.
Children in Reception and Year 1 will receive their remote learning via Tapestry. This will include pre-recorded lessons and activities. Teachers will contact parents on Monday 4th with further details.
Children who attend school as part of our Critical Worker or Vulnerable child provision will receive the same access to the remote learning (live lessons and work set) as children at home.
All live lessons are being recorded. This is to enable families who have siblings in the school (and wouldn't be able to access the live lessons at the same time) to schedule their children's learning at times to meet their own needs.
Contacting teachers: The chat function on Teams will only be available during live lessons. Parents/carers and children should not try to privately message any staff using Teams without confirmation that they can do this. Staff will not respond to any private messages and may report this to senior leaders.
Reception/Year 1 can use Tapestry for contact but only to upload work or comment on your child's learning. Any other issues should go via the year group email.
If you wish to contact your child's teacher for any reason please use the email addresses already in use or via email@example.com. Emails will only be monitored between 9am to 5pm each day.
Families/children can request a phone call (or video call if appropriate) please request this via the office or year group email.
Marking & Feedback: All children will be give a deadline by which work needs to be completed and uploaded. Children who hand work in late will not receive any marking or feedback (unless prearranged with the teacher). Teachers will provide in-depth marking for 1 English, 1 maths and 1 other subject per week. All other marking will be recognition marking.
If your child/ren are unable to access Teams (either due to lack of suitable equipment or internet access) please follow the link below and complete the contact form. We do have laptops that we can loan to families.
