We are receiving some very positive comments about our online learning offer. This is great as teachers really are trying very hard to ensure the offer will ensure as much progress as possible. Mrs Bishton will soon be sending out a brief survey to allow us to collect responses to share with outside agencies.
It is important to note that the children in school receive exactly the same offer as those at home. There is no benefit educationally, in sending your children into school and in fact only an increased level of risk as far as the virus is concerned.
The message continues to be: keep your children at home if you can. It is only ‘critical’ workers who literally have no other choice that we are considering applications for.
We have been informed that we are to be allocated some additional laptops to support our home learning offer. If you really are struggling to access online learning and are currently relying on paper packs, then contact the school and we will see what we can do to help.
As you know the data is showing alarming increases in virus transmissions across Telford. We continue to do all we can in school to keep everyone safe, including regular testing of all of our staff. We ask that you continue to join us in this battle and importantly do not send your children into school unless you have to or if they are displaying any signs of illness.
At the moment we are lucky to have healthy staff to ensure high quality education throughout. If we have cases, this limits this offer and affects us all.
The new survey to fill out for a child school place for next week is due to be sent out tomorrow (Wednesday 13th January), with a deadline of 9am on Thursday 14th January. Please remember, that if you do require a place, we require the form so that we have enough time to verify status and shift patterns.
Thank you for your continued support.
