By the end of this week, we hope to ensure that all pupils have access to our distance learning. We also aim to ensure that this is a positive experience for pupils, parents and staff.
Below are a few essential points about our distance learning.
Thank you for your support. If you have ANY concerns, contact school - we can help.
Mr J Wilkinson
The COVID-19 virus has meant that we have all had to make changes to the way we live our lives. The most important thing is to help everyone in your household to stay safe and look after the health and well-being of all those you live with. Follow the latest guidance on the Welsh Government website.
Secondly you can support your children to stay learning. As a parent/carer you are not being asked to take on the role of teacher or to deliver the school day in your own home. Children will need different support depending on many things, including age and learning needs. You and your children’s teachers know your children best.
Please remember that your children are learning all the time and being in school is just part of that. There may be days when you are working and when you have other people to care for. There may be days when you or your children are tired, someone is ill or when it just isn’t possible to help your children with their learning. This is fine. During these difficult times it is important to try to keep some structure and routine to your days.
Try following these steps.
Finding family routines
Connecting with others
Having received ‘Conwy’s IT Loan Agreement’ (which must be read and signed by parents), we can now loan Chromebooks to families who do not have devices to access online learning.
Please contact School to arrange collection.
We would like to keep you informed of progress with our approach to ‘Distance Learning’.
Here are the key points, at this moment in time.
Thank you all for your support and do not hesitate to get in touch if you need help and support or just to talk.
We are preparing to start 'distance learning' for ALL pupils on Monday 20th April. Planning for this is being assisted by GWE (whose guide to online tools can be accessed here).
Teachers in Foundation Phase (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) will mainly be making use of SeeSaw to support online learning. Teachers in Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) will be using Hwb and Google Classroom.
Over the next few days we need to know who can access online tools. Please can all children attempt to access Hwb or Seesaw. If we do not make contact with you, we will be making phone calls to establish what we can do to help with online access and/or distance learning. It is VITAL that, as far as possible, that there is equal and fair provision for all our pupils.
We will not be providing 'school online'. We will be, firstly, maintaining school contact, secondly helping to support every child's wellbeing and, finally, providing resources and ideas to encourage learning.
