48 Hour Absence
If any child is off school due to illness we would not expect them to complete work set. To support families whose children are no longer ill but are awaiting the results of a test and cannot return to school we have established the following resources. They are designed to be used by children whilst they wait for the result of tests and contain links to resources which will allow children to keep learning.
14 Day Self-Isolation
We are prepared for the eventuality of a child having to self-isolate from school if they are required to self-isolate within their household for up to 14 days. We recognise that it will be vital for these children to continue to access the same learning as their peers. After the initial 48 hour period of self-isolation your child’s class teacher will contact you to explain how learning will be set using the seesaw platform. This will mirror the ongoing learning in the classroom. Work will be set by the class teacher and feedback given at the end of each school day; parents who are self-isolating will be able to contact the school between 9.30am and 10.30am every day if they need to clarify any aspect of their child’s learning.
As a school we recognise that families may have limited access to IT resources, particularly if multiple household members all need to access the same resource whilst parents are trying to work from home. Your child’s class teacher will make resources available if this would be helpful and would make appropriate arrangements for collection or delivery. We also recognise that it is not healthy for children to sit in front of a screen for long periods of time and would ensure that the learning activities available reflect this.
Whole Class Home Learning
If your child’s class bubble is forced to self-isolate the timetable for learning will immediately move online and a full curriculum will be delivered including daily input via seesaw from your teacher and feedback to support the learning of the class. If your child’s teacher is unable to deliver the lessons due to illness partner classes have already been identified to ensure that learning content continues to be updated. Children with SEND will also continue to be supported by TA staff, who are part of the seesaw learning platform and who will personalise appropriate elements of the learning set.
