Information for Parents of Children who are learning remotely at home during the school closures

You will receive communication from your child's class teacher regarding their remote learning and what is expected of them. This will also contain a timetable to help structure your child's day. All children are expected to complete all Remote Learning and staff will contact the parents of any children that are not accessing, completing and uploading their learning. (All information is contained under the Remote Learning tab on our website. Further information has been, and will continue to be, emailed to parents.

Information for Parents whose Children are Self-Isolating

In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, St. Peter's Catholic Primary School has developed the following plan. Within all plans, teachers will set appropriate work in-line with our current curriculum, these will be supplemented by a range of resources provided by Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize, alongside other resources deemed appropriate. Parents/ guardians need to make sure that children are supervised whilst using the internet to ensure that they are only accessing content that is appropriate to them. Children have recieved e-safety lessons in school and should be aware of how to keep themselves safe online and what to do if they don't feel safe, or view something inappropraite.

In the events of any form of isolation and loss of learning caused by Coronavirus, parents must understand that engagement in home learning is compulsory, as is the expectation that St. Peter's Catholic Primary School makes that provision available and accessible to all. However, if children themselves are too ill to attend then they should not be expected to engage in home learning. Please inform the class teacher via the class emails address if this is the case.

If a child is self-isolating because they are awaiting theirs or a close contacts test results:

If a child is self- isolating due to someone in their household having a test, school are to be informed and the child is to be directed to Oak Academy for their learning on Day 1, and then will receive learning from their class teacher until the person receives their test results. We ask that any learning that is completed please be uploaded to the child's SeeSaw or Tapestry (Foundation Stage) account. If the test comes back negative, the child is free to return to school the next day. If the test comes back positive, please see the information below.

If a child is self-isolating because they or a close contact has tested positive:

If a child has to self-isolate due to them being a close contact of someone who has tested positive, please direct them to the Oak Academy website for their first day of isolation. After this day, their class teacher will set work for them to complete on Google Classroom. The child can either upload their finished work to Google Classroom, SeeSaw or Tapestry (Foundation Stage). The child MUST self-isolate for the time stated by NHS Track and Trace. The child's teacher will be in regular contact with their parents/ guardians, either via email or phone, to ensure that the work is appropraitely completed.

If a whole class are self isolating due to a pupil or member of staff testing positive:

If a whole class bubble are having to self-isolate due to someone, teacher or pupil, testing positive in their class, the child MUST self-isolate until the date given by school for when the children can return. Parents/ guardians will be contacted via email to explain the guidelines. The teacher will plan the home learning for the class for the whole self-isolation period, email parents/ guardians a provisional timetable and instructions regarding the remote learning. Children will be instructed by their class teacher to upload their completed work to Google Classroom, SeeSaw or Tapestry (Foundation Stage). The class teacher will host online Zoom lessons with the children where appropriate. If the class teacher themself is too ill to do this, a contingency plan will be put into place and parents will be contacted via email regarding this, if necessary.
