While there is no official word on school closure and, with a growing number of families who are ‘self-isolating, we are trying to be proactive and look ahead to the challenges this presents.
Our contingency plan was that learning tasks would be posted on the Year Group pages within the school website. We realise this is imperfect as it does not allow for feedback or collaborative work. As a result, we are, as a matter of urgency, looking at alternative ways of working virtually. This seems a positive idea to work on and develop, irrespective of any move to close schools. We will keep you posted of any developments via email and this website.
Due to the fluid nature of the situation and the number of absent children, we are bringing our contingency plan forwards and, as of tomorrow (18.03.20), there will be at least one home learning task posted daily per year group – these can be accessed by any of our families who are currently ‘self-isolating’. The number of tasks will be increased should there be a significant change to the school’s ability to remain open. Of course, the tasks are open to all learners, so should anyone feel the need to do extra homework then, please, go ahead ; )
