Dear Parents and Carers  

Week beginning 11.05.20

Hello again

We hope everyone had the best BH weekend possible, under the circumstances, and is keeping safe and well. Further to the Prime Minister's address to the nation last night (10.05.20) schools are waiting for further guidance from the Government and our Local Authority. At this time there will be no changes in our existing provision and the children we are currently supporting in school. When our advice and guidance is updated we will be in touch with proposed changes moving forward. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we gain clarity and organise how we can safely implement the Government's recommendations. 

A few more links to resources...

The Education Endowment Fund have just published some new advice around teaching and learning during the COVID-19 crisis.

Well-being on the Web

Here are some websites where parents/carers can get advice if they are concerned about their child:

www.youngminds.org.uk  – Young Minds are the leading children’s mental health charity. This website is useful for children (mainly the older children) but there is a designated section for parents and carers. You can also speak with a professional on here for further advice.

www.familylives.org.uk  – On here you can find advice about a range of different things connected with family life, school, mental health and wellbeing.

www.mind.org.uk – Leading mental health charity where you can access information and advice from professionals.

www.mentalhealth.org.uk – Another one of the top mental health charities – here is a link for the parent/carer guide to supporting their child’s mental health. Specifically for COVID-19: GOV.UK released this document for parents/carers to support their children through the current crisis. They released a partner document directly to use with children which is useful.

Please check out your child's year group tab on our website for learning ideas, activities etc. We will keep adding to these over time. Staff, when in school, will also be telephoning parents/carers to have a catch up chat with children. This may take a number of attempts and will also be over time depending on when staff are in school and parent/carer availability.

         Thank you for your continued support
