To find out how your child will continue to learn during the National Lockdown. You can find out the information you need by:
- Reading our Remote Learning Policy.
- Go to the 'Curriculum' section of the website (see the link below) and read the 'Teaching and Learning Plan' for your child's age phase and the 'Knowledge Organiser' for their driver unit of work. This is a great starting point for keeping them on track and connected with their class. You could do this while you may be waiting for work from the class teacher.
During the national lockdown, we will ensure that we remain in contact with our pupils and their families on a daily basis. We want your child to attend every teaching session to support their mental health and wellbeing by seeing their friends daily and so that they do not have gaps in their learning. If we don't see your child at live sessions, your child's class teacher will make contact via Class Dojo to offer support. If this happens twice, they will give you a call and talk through any problems you might be facing and to offer advice and guidance. If this happens three times, they will put in a 'My Concern' referral and this will be picked up by the DSL and/or DDSL. Support for your child and/or your family may then be discussed at our weekly Priority Pupil meeting.
On weekdays, your child should go to the 'Holy Rosary Learning Hub' (see the link below) and complete Numbots (KS1), Bug Club (KS1/LKS2), TT Rockstars, Century and Read Theory (KS2) and Spelling Shed, as well as complete all the lessons, assignments and tasks set by their class teacher.
A suggested timetable would be:
The timetable and method of delivery may change depending on the age and phase of pupils, and some tasks may extend over more than one day.
We know that the challenges posed from home learning are significant and we want you to know that we are here to help and support you. There is no need to worry or stress about technological or academic issues that may arise. Just get in touch with your child's teacher if you are having difficulties and they will help where they can.
We have received positive news within Staffordshire of COVID testing.
Staffordshire are one of several local authorities to sign up for early roll out of new rapid turnaround tests. Currently, anyone who has one of the main symptoms of persistent cough, high temperature, new cough or loss of taste or smell must self-isolate immediately and book a test.
The capacity for testing has increased though and, as a result, members of Staffordshire may receive precautionary tests if you have any of these symptoms:
Please note, Staffordshire residents should still attend work and school if they are awaiting a test for one of the other symptoms listed above and you would ONLY have to self-isolate if the test comes back positive.
The national testing centres across the county have good availability, and can be booked
through the NHS website. People booking a test through this website need to check the
‘My council has asked me to get a test’ option.
There are also a number of community testing sites that change on a weekly basis. People can view if there are any sites set up near them by visiting our testing website.
