National Lockdown January 2021 Update
During lockdown we invite the most vulnerable pupils into school so that we can help the family as well as monitor the children’s education carefully. If children who are vulnerable and their parents do not wish them to come into school then we maintain regular daily contact as well as weekly contact as we do with all children at home. This could be via phone or a Google Meet. All children are asked to complete the daily register online at home at 9 am to insure that we know where every child is and that they’re trying to access their school work. Meanwhile all school systems remain in place, such as the use of ‘My Concern’ software as well as liaising with the safeguard lead. Parents are encouraged to use teachers email accounts should they need any individual help/support. If children lack technology/wi-fi then teachers will offer support. Teachers regularly remind pupils about staying safe online and we encourage parents too via Twitter. The children who are entitled to free school meals are given vouchers during the period of lockdown as we cannot run our school meal service with such few numbers. NB: We have chosen to add this section to the website rather than update our safeguarding policy.
