Latest Parent Mail 13.01.2021

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you are all safe and well.

All is well at school. Children and staff are working extremely hard in their bubbles and keeping strictly to our risk assessments to keep everyone safe.

I hope that you have all been able to access remote learning – remember to please let us know of any issues. Thank you to everyone who filled in our IT google doc – we have now been able to order the devices that were needed.

In addition to what was highlighted in Scenario 3 of the remote learning document, we are keen to add age and stage appropriate ‘live streaming’ of some sessions. We will be using google meet as our chosen platform. All children, including EYFS, have a school email address where we will send the links for live streaming.  Teachers are looking this week at what can be live streamed and we will be able to confirm early next week. Of course safeguarding and GDPR have to be carefully considered and so there will be a strict Code of Conduct that we will ask you to adhere too, that has been authorized by our safeguarding and GDPR team.

Assemblies too will be live streamed from next week. Your child will receive a link inviting them to the assembly, via their school email address, a few minutes before the start of each assembly so that they will be able to join.

Live streaming of assemblies will start next week and the times will be:

Monday –  9:30 am: Goals and Dreams

Wednesday– 2:30 pm: Value of the Term

Friday – 2:30 pm: Celebration Assembly

The Code of Conduct and all the information of how to access the live sessions will follow later this week but I wanted to give you the heads up now.

I am sure, like me, you are constantly following the news. Schools have never been given any pre-warning of government decisions to do with schools and we find out about changes the same time as you, but will always update you with any changes and resulting actions as soon as we can.

In the meantime, stay safe and take care,

Julie Holland
