Parent Letter - 18th January 2021

18th January 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

 

Home Learning

As we enter the beginning of our third week of home learning, we would like to send another huge thank you to you all. We entered this new period of lockdown with apprehension, unsure as to how we would all cope.  We could never have imagined how enthusiastically and successfully our pupils would have participated and adapted to using our home learning platforms.  We know that a great many of you are trying to juggle working from home, caring for younger children or elderly family members and home schooling.  We acknowledge that some days are harder than others.  You are doing a super job.  Please contact school if there is anything that we can do to help.

 

For all issues relating to on-line learning email homework@upperbycdc.org.uk

 

The children who have been attending school have shown great resilience when adapting to yet another change in their day to day schooling.  We have never been prouder of our pupils.  Thank you to those parents who emailed us to tell us how their children have enjoyed and benefitted from their online learning. This means so much to our staff and all emails have been forwarded on to them.

 

We will be introducing more Meet sessions for all year groups this week.  Please look out for these on the year group pages.  Teachers will be outlining their meets for the week, so you are aware in advance.

 

Book Exchange

Book exchange was a great success last week and it was lovely to see so many of you.

 

We will continue to provide an exchange of book(s) for your child(ren) closely linked to their reading level, printed worksheets to supplement learning on-line, replacement home learning books and support for families struggling with any technical issues. We need to ensure social distancing so it will be organised in year groups, however if you have children in different year groups come to just one of the days and we will cater for all the children at one time.

 

Please let us know in advance, then books/resources can be organised.      Contact via covid19@upperbycdc.org.uk

 

Please come at the specific times for each class within the year groups.  All adults must wear a mask and maintain social distancing.   Please enter via NURSERY ROAD GATE and come to the hall door only – please respect the safety of staff and stay in the parent’s area.

COVID19 Information

We continue to need to know if we have children who have tested positive or children who are self-isolating, even if they are learning on-line.  For this and any general concerns please contact the school on covid19@upperbycdc.org.uk    Please do not use any other e-mail account to contact school and then we can ensure that the senior leadership team are seeing all communications from parents.

 

Please take care and stay safe.

Yours sincerely

 

J Hodgkins  

Head Teacher
