as we Are open in january for only key workers/ critical workers and vulnerable pupils, we felt it necessary to share some frequently asked questions with you.
We hope this document helps to ease some concerns and answer questions in relation to the limited opening of school. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact the school office or Speak to a member of staff.
Please note, this document should be used in conjunction with closure documentation which can be found on the school website and on Twitter @MilefieldP.
What if my child cannot access remote learning?
Please contact school in the first instance, we will work with you to ensure your child's education does not suffer. We can provide support with online services, reset passwords, resend login details whenever required. We ask that you contact us via telephone (01226710329) or twitter: @MilefieldP or @mfps_parents. If you can access Seesaw or Teams, you may use those or our Arbor service to communicate any issues too.
What if I do not have a device for my child to use for remote learning?
You may use any device with internet access such as an ipad/tablet, phone, XBox/PStation etc. If you desperately require a device for remote learning for your child, please let school know asap as we have some DfE loaned devices. These have to be signed out and collected from school.
What if I have more than one child needing to log on at the same time?
We have staggered learning times to try to alleviate this issue but some year groups clashing will be unavoidable. Staff are aware that some siblings may be taking it in turns to access live lessons. The way to combat this issue at home is to agree a timetable for your children to access a lesson each throughout the day. Then, all work is posted to seesaw with the lesson recording and supporting materials meaning pupils can log on to seesaw at any point and upload their work.
What if my child is struggling to access the learning provided?
All learning provided is year group specific and will be supported/challenged where appropriate. Staff are best placed to provide suitable work for each pupil in their year group. Each online lesson will have time for pupils to ask questions and stay online for support with the teacher/TA at the end of each lesson. If your child is struggling, they may also contact teachers via Seesaw. Please don't suffer in silence, speak to a member of staff and we can support.
What if my child received support in class before the closure?
Targeted support groups/interventions will be set up and run in January. All pupils who received support when schools were open will be contacted and offered extra sessions online with TAs. This will also take place during daily lessons for some. Any pupils with SEND will receive support remotely. The director of SEND is still in contact with teachers and pupils regularly. Any meetings set up will be agreed by parents over the phone then take place remotely. If you have SEND concerns, please contact school in the first instance.
