Remote Education - A Parent Guide:
Our remote education guide is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents/carers about what to expect from remote education if local/national restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home. For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this guide: 'Remote Education - A Parent Guide'.
Communication with teachers/school if your child is isolating or during times of lockdown:
- If your child needs help: If pupils find learning difficult or 'get stuck' we encourage them to do at home what we encourage at school; Brain, book, buddy, boss. Find the answer for themselves by thinkings, researching, asking a friend and only then contacting their teacher or asking a parent. Learning is all about finding solutions to problems and ‘getting stuck’ is all part of the process. If your child does need to ask their teacher a question they can do so by sending a message via Google Classroom.
- Parents/Carers: As a parent, if you think you need to speak with a teacher or member of staff about your child’s learning, please email teachers directly: Staff Directory
- General Enquiries: For all other enquiries please ring the school directly 01748 833501 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updated guidance for keeping children safe online:
The Government has updated its guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. The measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19), although essential, have disrupted people’s day-to-day lives. As a result of these necessary measures, almost all of us are likely to be spending more time online, including children. This guidance contains resources for parents and carers to help keep their children safe online: Guidance COVID-19: support for parents and carers to keep children safe online.
Google Classroom Parent Alerts:
Parents can receive email summaries showing their child’s progress in Google Classroom. To become a ‘Google Guardian’ simply complete this form 'Google Classroom Summary Alerts' and our IT team will set this up for you.
