Update

Dear Parents/Carers

I would like to start by thanking you for the lovely messages from parents/carers, I have shared these with staff and this certainly brightened the mood this morning after last night’s news.  We have been working relentlessly today to get bits sorted and we hope by the end of the week we should have everything running smoothly.

All key worker children and those that fall into the vulnerable category have now been informed that you are able to attend and should do so wearing uniform. If you have not been spoken to then children are to begin remote learning from 06/01/2021 and this is discussed further on in this letter.

Unfortunately, due to staffing and those classed as vulnerable we are going to be unable to offer breakfast club and wrap around care during this period so our operating hours will be 8:30 until 3:30 as with the first lockdown. I appreciate this may cause difficulties but if I was able to offer it I certainly would.

Staff will be keeping in touch regularly with families via the telephone. As with before if you are struggling with anything please reach out to school and we will try and lend a hand even if it is putting referrals to foodbanks or if you just want to chat with another adult. WE ARE HERE!

School are working hard to get live lessons set up as quickly as possible to maximise engagement and ensure children remain in touch with friends and teachers however we are currently having some practical issues. We intend on starting live lessons as of Monday 11th January 2021 to allow us time to iron out issues that we have. Your child’s timetable is below.

We will be having a practice run on Friday 8th January 2020 to check that everyone can get onto the video call. This will take place at the times below:

Reception: 10am

Year 1: 10:15am

Year 2: 10:30am

Year 3: 10:45 am

Year 4: 11am

Year 5: 11:15am

Year 6: 11:30 am

Mr Barratt will send out a video and email with guidance on how to access Google Classroom and access the video method. Please have a play around with this before Friday to familiarise yourselves with this.

This will then allow us the afternoon to sort issues ready to start online learning on Monday.

Until then, work is available on the school website. If you visit https://www.churchlaneprimary.org.uk/ , visit home learning and click on your child’s page. You will then be able to access videos and learning that can be completed in the children’s green books that have been sent home.

Remote learning

Remote learning will be done through Google Classroom and ALL children will receive approx. 2 hours of live teaching each day from years 1-6 as well as provided with links to complete topic work. Many of you have asked for laptops and I will get these out to you over the coming days. We have a few more devices available and internet dongles. Please email enquiries@sleafordchurchlane.lincs.sch.uk if you would like one of these.

Please find the below timetable for children to follow at home. If children are refusing to participate in learning please contact school and staff will happily come to your homes to support with child engagement.

Nursery

Staff are going to read stories and sing songs and set challenges via Tapestry and will continue to communicate with you through this forum.

Reception

The plan for Reception home learning is:

9.30am- RWI Video links will be sent on Tapestry for each child to complete

11.30am- Links will be sent out for Maths WRM home learning videos- these are exactly what we are covering in school.

1.30pm- Miss Hakes will deliver a live zoom session of letter formation and read a story that we will be covering in class. Miss Hakes will then set a challenge linked to topic. The zoom invite will go to parents via tapestry.

Children will need to have cameras on as there will be interactive activities and we ask that parents are also present to support children with their concentration.

It is vital that if for any reason you are struggling to access google classroom that you contact enquiries@sleafordchurchlane.lincs.sch.uk so we can rectify this and ensure children are not left behind.

There will be rules for live learning that need to be strictly adhered to comply with safeguarding measures and protect both adults and children. A register will be taken before each session, children not attending online sessions will be contacted to check how online learning is being completed.  We do understand that parents are also working in many cases from home and school want to work to support you to find a balance so that children do not fall behind with learning.

-        Children will only use school technology for school purposes as directed by my teacher.

 

-        Children will only take part in ‘live’ streaming if a parent and teacher knows that they are doing it and school takes that if a child is attending a live lesson that this has been agreed prior by parents.

 

-        Children will not reveal any passwords to anyone.

 

-         Parents and Children will be responsible for their behaviour and actions when using technology and this includes the resources children access.

 

-        Children and parents will make sure that all communication with other students, teachers or others using technology is responsible and sensible.

 

-        Children will not deliberately browse, download, upload or forward material that could be considered offensive or illegal. If children accidentally come across any such material they should report it immediately to their teacher or their parent.

 

-        Children and parents will not share resources or videos created by teachers with anyone who is not a pupil or member of staff at Church Lane Primary School and Nursery

 

-        Children and parents will not record or take photos of their classmates or teachers during a face-to-face session. Children and parents will not share any school content on social media platforms

 

-        Children and parents understand that when using Google Classroom and other applications provided by the school that my use can be monitored and logged and can be made available to my teachers.

 

-        If audio/video conferencing is used, Children and parents understand that this might be recorded by the teacher for safeguarding purposes. It is for the parent to determine whether they are happy for children to use video conferencing. Otherwise they should just use audio. School accept no responsibility if children use video when prior permission not given

 

-        Children will continue to follow the rules regarding my use of technology as outlined in the school’s ICT Acceptable User Agreement

 

Parents and children understand that these rules are designed to help keep children safe and that if they are not followed, school sanctions will be applied and my parent may be contacted. When participating in an audio or video conference on Google classroom, remember that this is an extension of the classroom and you should conduct yourself as you would when on your best behaviour in a classroom. This includes:

 

-        Be on time for your interactive session

-        Be dressed appropriately for learning (e.g. no pyjamas)

-        Interact patiently and respectfully with your teachers and peers

-        Microphones will need to be turned off

-        Video conference from an environment that is quiet, safe, public and free from distractions. Please DO NOT use bedrooms for video conferencing. We also request that parents are in the vicinity of online lessons to ensure that children are engaging.

-        If children access online live learning the school assumes that children have been given permission to do so. It is up to parents to decide whether they allow their children to have their picture shown or not. Video can easily be turned off.

-        You MUST NOT record each other’s online interactions. If the lesson is to be recorded, this will be done by the teacher.

-        You MUST NOT take screen shots of the teacher or other children within the video call

-        Make sure you end the session as soon as the teacher indicates to do so and do not stay in the session after the teacher has left.

 

Any breaches of the above will be dealt with under the schools behaviour policy as this is an extension of the classroom.

 

Free school meals

Starting from Monday we will be delivering food boxes to children who are in receipt of free school meals. If your child is in school you will need to send your child in with a packed lunch as you will have a food box. If your child is in Reception, 1 or 2 and attending school and have not received a food box they will receive a packed lunch bag in school.

I understand that there is a lot of information here. There will be further information over the coming days being released too. Until then, please take care and look after yourselves and we will see you all soon.

Lockdown

Dear Parents/Carers

The news I  and staff have been dreading has arrived and I will be honest we are all heart broken as the children and staff have worked so hard since returning to catch up on missed learning and the children have been amazing. Unfortunately, this has meant we are going to have to close our doors to the majority however the difference this time is that we are able to offer remote learning. 

I too have only just found out about lockdown and as you can appreciate, finding out at 8:25pm does not leave much time to organise anything and give you time to organise anything.

Children will need to wear uniform and will go to their usual classroom doors. 

Pre-school will remain open tomorrow for ALL children as per guidance. Please inform us if you do not intend on sending. 

School will be sorting who comes under the vulnerable and EHCP etc children category tomorrow and we will inform you if you can send your child to school as of 6/1/2021.

Tomorrow we will be pulling together our remote teaching.

As you can appreciate, I and school staff will try our best to support all of you, however please bear with us whilst we do our best to put the best possible plan together. 

Thank you all for your ongoing support and take care. I will be sending lots of information through tomorrow and will be calling individuals as the day goes on.

Positive Coronavirus Test

 November 18th 2020

Dear Parent/Carer/staff

I am writing to inform you that a member of the school community has recently tested positive for covid-19 and felt it best to inform you all.

I have been in contact with Public Health Lincolnshire this afternoon and they have advised me of next steps.

I have been advised that due to the timeline of when the member of the community was last in school it has mitigated any risk of transmission to staff and pupils and therefore no further action is required.  I should like to thank parents and pupils for their excellent efforts in supporting the measures that we have in place. We will continue to remain open to all our learners and will continue with our health and safety measures.

I am not at liberty to disclose the name of the person concerned but ask that we continue to follow the school guidance by washing/sanitising our hands and by wearing face masks to drop off etc. In addition to this, it is essential that we continue to observe the important 2m distance.

I should like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of observing the Government guidelines. If you or your child or anyone within your household develops symptoms of coronavirus, please remember to  isolate and book a test. 

Please be assured that the school is regularly reviewing our practice and will continue to adhere to Government guidelines.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mr C Clay

Headteacher

Church Lane Primary School and Nursery


Returning to school 9th November 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you have all had a nice and relaxing 2 weeks break from school, i know staff are excited to get term started again. We have lots of exciting things planned!

As you will all be aware whilst on our break the country has gone into a national lockdown however schools remain open. As part of our commitment to constantly update and review our risk assessment, we have made some changes in the interest of keeping everyone safe. These changes are outlined below:

1. Whilst in the period of lockdown, school is requesting that anyone over the age of 11 who are dropping off or collecting children wears a mask. This is in order to continue to reduce the risk to all stake holders but also because we know that the virus spreads primarily between adults and older children. Science tells us that masks can reduce the risk of passing on the virus. 

2. That parents continue to be mindful of maintaining two metres distance and do not gather to chat in large groups. 

Whilst none of these actions can be enforcible by school I ask that you respect this as a member of the school community and try to adhere to them in order to continue as a group to keep each other safe. 

Can I also remind parents that if anyone in your household has a dry persistent cough, a temperature or loss of taste and smell then you should isolate as a family, book a test and inform school. 

Some parents may be worried by the current circumstances and may be worried about sending your child to school. It is important to note that Lincolnshire is still a medium risk county and has been this way for some time. So far in this county, 600 children out of 115,000 children have contracted covid-19- this includes children from the Early years through to college (Approx-0.5%). There have been 181 positive cases of staff in lincolnshire out of approx 13,000 adults so infection of adults working in school is about 1.39%. Obviously Data can change quickly and this does not reflect the true disruption of isolation etc but this gives you a clearer picture of what is happening in Lincolnshire. 

Take care all and I look forward to seeing you all Monday. 

Mr Clay
