Message to Parents/Carers

Dear Parents/Carers

It is unfortunate that we have to isolate so close to the end of the term but it is for the safety of your children. I wish those that have tested positive a quick and full recovery. It is hoped staying at home will reduce the spread of COVID in school and within the wider community.

We will be working from home from tomorrow (Monday 5th July 2021) until the rest of the week with the expected return to school on Monday 12th July 2021.

I have already posted the intended remote learning schedule. I will provide work and guidance on a daily basis and post before school starts from tomorrow morning and every morning for the rest of the week. Please ensure your child completes the set work as it is sequential – work set the subsequent day builds on what they learnt in the previous session.

The children should still have their homework books and the books from the last isolation so hopefully they can record their outputs in there. If they do not have these books then it is absolutely fine to carry out the work on blank or lined paper. I appreciate resources might be limited.

I will send TEAM seminar invites out tomorrow; similar to the last lockdown. Please ensure your child attend their specific seminar session. If I do not see them within the seminar we will follow up with a telephone call. The intention of the seminar is to offer guidance/support and to confirm that your child is able to access the work set. I will also be available online and the Willow Class email account will be open throughout the week – children are very welcome to email me in the event of query or to ask questions relating to the work set. I will respond as soon as I can.

I hope this clarifies my intention for the week but, as always, please email me, on in the event of any query.

Thank you for your support and co-operation.

Kind regards,

Mr Wilmot
