Following yesterday’s announcement on the closure of schools apart from critical worker families / vulnerable pupils, this email is to share information about what this provision will look like at Ightenhill.
Pupils who are attending this provision will be accessing the same learning activities that pupils will be given who are learning remotely at home. This will be based on learning activities delivered through the class dojo platform.
We will be working in Year group bubbles during this period of school closure. Teaching and support staff will be working on a timetable of school based and remote learning support. Please note that your child may not always be working with their usual teacher / support staff.
During this period of closure we will not be expecting pupils to wear their uniforms, although we may review this at a later date.
We will continue to use the same entrance and exit points at the start / end of the school day and school timings will also remain the same.
Please could we remind you that the critical worker provision is only to be used if is provides essential childcare for your family. We must stress that the offer of a childcare place in school, is for children of critical workers only and again only in the circumstances that there is no other responsible adult able to care for them at home. It continues to be accepted that if a child can remain at home, they should.
Please be aware that the same precautions will be taken at school throughout this time. If your child or anybody in your household is displaying coronavirus symptoms, they must stay at home and get tested.
If any of our critical worker / vulnerable pupil bubbles are impacted by a positive test result then these groups will have to self-isolate and remote learning will be provided.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time. If you require further information, do not hesitate to contact school.
