For the coming weeks our teachers will communicate with the children in a variety of different ways using but mainly Seesaw and email.
Our Sixth Classes, Support teachers and Special Class Teachers will also use other supports including Zoom, WhatsApp, text, phone, post and dropping support packs to your homes.
By now your child’s teacher will have been in touch to outline their plans and arrange the collection of any materials or books from school that may be helpful at home. A list of the planned work for each class is posted on this website under the ‘Homework’ section above.
We plan to use more recorded video and voice over rather than ‘live’ lessons for most classes, as this will give you an opportunity to view them with your child at the most suitable time for you and be able to view them multiple times if necessary. We will trial live Zoom sessions with Sixth Classes and continue with this support in some of our Special Classes also.
Regardless of the method of support the aim is to help you and your children through this difficult time. We understand that every home is different, with varying levels of internet access and different times suitable for engagement, so we understand that any of us can only do our best.
All of us will hear fables about how other schools and families are coping wonderfully and we can judge ourselves harshly as a result. See these stories for what they are – a work of fiction. All of us find the going difficult and we are here to help each other. So do what you can.
