Update On Devices To Support Remote Learning

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well and once again thank you for the support that you are providing to your children in order for them to be able to access learning from home.

As previously mentioned, school was only allocated 25 devices from the government that we are able to loan to families. We have had to issue these devices based on the needs and individual circumstances of the people who requested them based on the information that you provided us with. The first 25 devices have now been distributed which means that many of you will be feeling disappointed. We understand your disappointment and frustration and sincerely wish that we were able to issue more devices but we can only give out the numbers that we have.

Alternative FSM provision w/c 25th January 2021

During this current period of school closure, we are now pleased to be able to offer eligible parents and pupils access to free school meals by supplying supermarket eGift cards, that can be spent locally to you. The DfE have funded these eGift cards as part of a national scheme. You will be able to choose which supermarket you would like an eGift card for including Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and more.

Eligible families will be receiving their eCode via email w/c 25th January 2021 to provide lunch time meals for three weeks until half term.

Updated Remote Learning Plan

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope that you are all managing to navigate through the difficulties that we are facing; are following the government guidelines around lockdown and that you and your families are keeping safe and well.

As always, thank you for the positive feedback that we have received from many of you. This is always gratefully received and makes a big difference to the whole team. Thank you also for the suggested improvements. We always take these into account and look at ways of being even better.

Devices to support remote learning

Dear Parents

Understandably, we have had a lot of enquiries from parents about laptops and devices from the Department for Education (DfE) for families who need them. We are doing everything we can to support families who need a device or need to be connected to the internet.  At this moment in time, we have been allocated just over 80 devices across our 5 schools (which currently serve just over 3000 pupils).
