Newsletter 16 - 8th January 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,
What a week!
Once again, we are all learning new ways of working and, as predicted, there have been a few hitches along the way. Most of them technological ones! I know how frustrating it can be so I wanted to thank you for your patience and for supporting your children.  We are completely aware of how difficult it is to 'home school', especially if you are also trying to hold down a job at home at the same time!  Some of us are trying to do the same so we really do understand.
Please do continue to contact us if you do not have a device that your child can use. We will do what we can to help.
Despite the technical issues, the feedback I have had is how great it is for children to see their class teachers and peers daily. This is a great motivator and encourages engagement and participation. We will continue to develop this and provide a variety of face to face virtual sessions, recorded sessions, independent tasks and group sessions. We will also continue to provide a sequenced, appropriate curriculum for the children. Teachers are keeping a record of ‘attendance’ and engagement of the remote learning as the expectation is that all pupils will join in.
Please continue to contact us; we will do our very best to overcome obstacles!

Enjoy a couple of days off home learning and we’ll be back on Monday!
Mrs Griffith

Remote Learning Policy

Government laid out new requirements for the provision of remote learning by schools last year.  Please find attached our Remote Learning Policy which was put together and distributed last October in response to these new guidelines.

Use of Chat function on Microsoft Teams

Please note that the Microsoft Teams Chat function on school accounts may only be used for communicating with the class teacher during a teaching session.  At all other times of day the Chat function is not to be used, and is not to be used for communicating with peers at any time.  Any chat groups set up must be deleted immediately.  This will apply mainly to older children in school and teachers will be speaking to pupils about this today.  Please make sure you also pass this message on to your children.
