To view our school closure letter concerning the Government’s announcement on 4th January 2021, please click here.
I wanted to take this opportunity to signpost you to some help and guidance to support you with the online learning. We have attached some advice for you in the parents section of the website in the Covid 19 and Remote Learning section. Also, if there is any further, specific support you need, there are a wide range of videos on YouTube offering support with Google Classroom.
In addition to this, all the staff at school would like to thank you all for all your support in this incredibly difficult time for all of us.
Remember that we are all learning together and all we are asking at this stage is that you have a go and we are so impressed with the engagement of the children this week. We are setting the amount and volume of work that we are being told to do by the Government, but we are not expecting every child to be sitting in front of a computer from 9:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon. All we expect is that the children are trying to do the work and more than anything, we want to know that they are happy and we want to help and support in that in any way we can.
Remember to keep your routines. Have lots of breaks, exercise, time away from the screens and whilst the work is important and we will be setting and checking work each day, remember that this time, we are online, looking at Google Classroom all day long, so we are available constantly to answer any questions, even if it is not a time when we are live on Google Meet. Also, please do not panic if the technology lets you down.
Again, thank you so much for all your support and hard work and if there is anything you need additional help or guidance with, please let us know.
