ONLINE LEARNING & ACCESS TO DEVICES (& THER RESOURCES FOR LIVE LESSONS)
Online Learning Content
For the last week we are offering our full 'shadow curriculum' via our Google Classroom. This is for pupils in school and at home - where possible we are aligning the experience for those in school and at home. All KS1 children will receive 3+ hours and KS2 children 4+ hours of quality online content, including access to the national resources of Oak Academy, largely within 4 sessions/activities.
We have provided your child with their Maths workbook (the book they write in for maths - details to follow about distribution/collection) and they also will already have their Home Learning Book to write in. Your child will need very basic stationary such as pencils, pens, ruler.

We have already provided vouchers via Wonde for week beginning 11 January. From week begining 18 January this will be via Edenred. All vouchers are ordered on Thursday for delivery at the end of each week.

3SV is closed until 18 January. A positive case from within this bubble has resulted in this closure. The critical and vulnerable worker children who attended school on Tuesday 5th & Wednesday 6th January in this bubble must now isolate until the 15th or 16th January, returning on 18th January. The critical and vulnerable worker children who did not attend Tuesday or Wednesday and are affected by this please contact the school if places are still required. All children in 3SV will receive remote learning from today. We will arrange pick up/drop off of devices of those now isolating.
6M is closed until 19 January. A positive case from within this bubble has resulted in this closure.

WE ALL NEED TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF CONTACTS. WE ALL NEED TO REDUCE TRANSMISSION. THE PRIME MINISTER DESCRIBED SCHOOLS AS 'VECTORS' OF THE VIRUS.
Due to Boris Johnson announcement tonight, school will be closed until February half term to all children except Critical Workers and Vulnerable Children. This applies to all our classes, Nursery included.
You will be notified by text tonight for provisional approved for your child to attend tomorrow and till the end of the week (enabling us to undertake an employment verfication). Text will only be received where the school has classified one parent as a critical worker based on the information we have received. Parents MUST NOT attend unless you receive this confirmation text.
ALL PLACES HAVE BEEN ALLOCATED. You should note that that in most bubbles/classes we have fully allocated to critical worker parents and vulnerable children. This will mean any future children attending may recieve child care but this will likely NOT be with their classteacher and NOT in their classroom.
Where you have requested a CW place and it has not been granted and you consider you should, please contact the school via Live Chat and we will need further details regarding how you work specifically supports the COVID response.
Governors have agreed a protocol for the issuing of places in event of more places requested than our Risk Assessment can permit. Our tream have worked through these and are in the process of completing employment verification. Children should only take up a place where there is no adult 16+years old at home to look after them, therefore we will be issuing to our Critical Workers the weekly booking form so that we do not have to have children in school if they have supervision at home. This increases our resilience from whole bubbles being sent home from virus and reduces the number of possible transmissions. We were informed during the last lockdown that there may have been parents who were taking places in school when parents had been furloughed or were not working during the first lockdown. I hope that parents would let us know of any abuses of trust with regard to taking places in school or false information about roles/jobs. Offers of places will be removed if concerns are upheld.
If somebody in your household develops symptoms or is advised to go for a test please DO NOT send your child into school.
By doing so you potentially put other families and staff at risk of contracting COVID-19.
You MUST keep your children at home until you recieve a negative test. When a negative test is received we can welcome your child back to school. If you receive a positive test, the rest of your household must isolate for 14 days.
