Pupil Work In The Event of School Closure

What to expect if your child is self-isolating or awaiting test results

If your child needs to self-isolate for 14 days because they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID 19 or they are at home waiting for test results school will support their continued learning at home if they are well enough to work. This will be done in the following ways:

  • The class teacher will phone you at home on the first day of the child’s absence to check how they are and to make some simple suggestions of work you could do with them initially.
  • At the same time the teacher will offer you a pack of work for you to use with your child at home. This can be emailed to you or can be collected by another parent or friend to deliver to your house. In the case of neither of these being possible a member of school staff will deliver the work to you as soon as is possible. We will remind you of the class email address so that you can be in touch with the teacher about any queries you may have or return work for feedback.
  • Five school days later the class teacher will make a follow up phone call to see how your child is and how they have progressed with the work pack. At this point more work can be issued if you need it.

What to expect If you are notified of a whole year group bubble closing for 14 days.

If there is a confirmed case of COVID 19 in school, we will immediately seek advice from the DFE and Public Health England. At this point it may be that they advise us that a whole class or year group bubble must self-isolate for 14 days. In the event of your child’s class and teacher not working from the school premises for 14 days school will support their continued learning from home in a more detailed form. This will be done in the following ways:

  • Details of work for children to complete will be put onto the school app, tapestry and website from day one. You will also find details of the class email address with the documents and plan.
  • Daily short taught inputs will be uploaded onto Tapestry for you to use with your child e.g phonics lessons, maths starting points.
  • Within the first few days off site, the class teacher will telephone you to check that you are able to access the work. If at this point you require physical copies of anything or reading books, then we can arrange for you to collect them from school for your child.
  • Four or five school days later, the class teacher will make a follow up phone call to see how your child is progressing with their work and to give verbal feedback on work seen to date.
  • Work can be submitted through tapestry or via the class email address and teachers will give regular feedback.
