Coronavirus Updates

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4th January 2021, we have been notified by Doncaster Council that we now have to move to remote learning immediately. All parents and carers have been contacted regarding the booking system for Critical workers and vulnerable children as required by the Department for Education, please contact school if your circumstances change and you need a place for your child. 

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

Remote Learning

We totally understand how difficult it has been over the last couple of days and now going into lockdown. I can assure you our school staff are doing everything in their power to ensure work is provided for your children.

The school will now be moving to remote education:

This means as a school we will provide a variety of learning for you children whilst they are not in school. Remote learning does not just mean direct online teachers speaking to pupils all day. We are fully aware of the difficulties many of us face accessing the internet and use of computers or tablets. Therefore, remote learning combines online learning, websites, video links, hard copy resources and online direct teacher time.

All pupils in KS2 have had opportunity to learn how to access our online learning platform – TEAMs. This will be our main approach to online learning in KS2 with a range of tasks, links to video, websites and direct teaching time.

Many in KS1 have used TEAMs and Seesaw. KS1 will now be largely be sharing the daily lesson videos, prompts and activities on Seesaw. This is as we have found that our younger children appear to be much more confident in accessing these activities themselves as well as the login process being far simpler.  For the duration of home learning the children have their own personal code which will be sent to you directly. We will however continue to post on Teams alongside Seesaw. For a quick and simple guide on how to access and navigate Seesaw please view the video here

In foundation Tapestry will become our way of providing online work and information.

Attached alongside this letter is an outline of each year groups remote learning expectations. We will work hard to support you in any way we can to maintain basic learning whilst your child is at home. Live sessions will begin from Monday 11th January.

This will include daily tasks and sessions, workpacks, weekly checks on learning to see how we can help further. Timetables are attached for each area of school.

We are determined to try and maintain some basic learning to ensure your child is able to progress and retain the incredible learning they made last term.

Please contact the school if you need a photocopied work pack/ pen/ pencil or paper. If you require a photocopy of the work pack please contact the class teacher through email/ or text the school. We will be in contact as soon as possible to provide you with a collection time.

As I have said earlier we understanding access to online learning is difficult at times and we are again currently looking to secure laptops for the school in the near future.

Please could I ask all parents to email the class email address so we have the most up to date address. This will become a very important form of communication over the next 6 weeks.

I appreciate how difficult home-learning is for everybody so please let us know if there is anything further we can do to support you. We are all hoping this lockdown will end as soon as possible and everyone comes out the other side safely and in good health.

Further information regarding Free School Meals will follow as soon as we have the full guidance.

Again if there are any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Remote Learning Information

Thank you for your support with regards to remote learning. The pupils have made a very positive start this week. However, it is a requirement from the DfE that students engage in remote learning and teachers are able to check and give feedback.

Paper based workpacks are available for collection from the school office (by appointment) as well as pupils having access to live lessons with the teachers from school. Paper based work packs will also need to be returned to the office so feedback can be given to the children. Staff will review this learning after a suitable period of quarantine.

As part of the DfE guidance teachers are expected to keep a record of engagement and will seek to support you and your child in any way possible. Each bubble will also be celebrating success and engagement through their live lessons/ online feedback and emails.

Further information about your particular child’s online timetable is available on their class webpage. If you are struggling to access any of the learning, please contact the school as soon as possible so we can try to help.
