My child is self-isolating, what should I do?
Children can access learning, in line with their peers, whilst at home if they are self-isolating through the use of Google Classroom via the Year Group Home Learning Page.
The learning tasks provided will be appropriate to the age and suitability of the child and will help to promote high levels of learning and continued connection during and for the durationof the child’s period of absence.
Learning Tasks for children can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Classwork’ tab. These tasks will only be visible to your child if they are self-isolating.
If a child is unwell, learning tasks will not be provided.
The activities available will include:
1x Daily Practice (e.g. xtables, Phonics)
1x Other Curriculum Area, eg. Science, Topic, etc. If a ‘Computing’ task is set for home learning, your child may be requested to log into Purple Mash (an in-school computing resource). Details of your child’s login will be available in their Learning Diary.
You will be informed, by your child’s class teacher or a member of the year group team, what provision will be available to them via Google Classroom. If a child is unwell, learning tasks will not be provided. Your child’s class teacher or year group team will endeavour to maintain regular contact with those parents of children who are isolating, either via the year group email address or a telephone call. However, please do contact the team (via the year group email) if you have any questions or require any support throughout the period of
In order to make this a safe experience for all, we must ask all parents and carers to read our expectations and agreements and share them with their child. These expectations apply to all members of staff engaging in a Google Meet too. In joining these sessions, both parents and carers, children and staff are then agreeing to these. If there is any misuse of the Google Meets function, the child will need to be removed from the session and their use of this feature for home learning may not be reinstated. This is to protect all of our children in school and at home.
You must ensure that your child is in a quiet space without distractions from siblings or others, many children (especially our youngest children) will require supervision and adult support during the meeting
Your child must be appropriately dressed
The background must be suitable, we advise that you blur the background
Children and parents/carers must not take screenshots or record the session in any manner, including taking photos of the screen
I understand that the session may be recorded by the school for safeguarding and monitoring purposes
Children must enter the meeting on ‘mute’ and maintain this unless asked by the teacher leading the session otherwise
You must turn the ‘captions’ function off
Use the raise hand/lower hand function only when requested to do so by the member of staff leading the session
You or your child will use the chat function to ask any questions needed whilst muted
Children and parents will not use the meeting link at any other point, other than when participating in a Google Meets session that has been organised by the school
Should a child be self-isolating at home, the class teacher will contact the parents or carers on the fifth day. Please note that if a child is not engaging with the learning tasks made available, the class teacher will phone home to provide assistance.
