From 10th January 2022, if your child is self isolating and is well, their class teacher will invite them to attend class via MS Teams. You will be sent a link daily where your child can meet up with their peers and receive teaching input. The teacher will be teaching the rest of the class in school, therefore we would ask that you remain on mute during the teaching input. Any presentations, teaching videos and other resources will be available on Google Classroom or Weduc for you to access. You will receive a phone call prior to the first day of learning to liaise with you regarding setting up. If you do not have a suitable device, please notify us at this time and we will arrange for the loan of equipment.
Your child can return their work to their class teacher once they have completed it. Your child will receive work until they return to school. We hope this initiative will be beneficial to both the children's education and mental health during a tricky time.
Keeping your child safe online during home learning
Technology is a fantastic tool to help children be able to continue to learn from home. However to keep your child safe online it is really important that you have appropriate parental controls and filters in place. Despite the controls, it is very important that you supervise them whilst using the internet.
Be confident that you know which websites or apps your children are accessing and that they are age appropriate.
When working online it is essential that children and parents know how to report any concerns that they have.
How to report concerns:
Call or e-mail the school office.
The websites listed below will signpost children and parents towards age appropriate practical support:
UK Safer Internet Centre - to report and remove harmful content online.
CEOP - for advice on making a report about abuse online.
