Remote Learning Feedback
Thank you to everyone who completed our Remote Learning Feedback form. We appreciate all feedback and we were particularly overwhelmed with the positive messages of support.
"The remote learning is superb, I can not fault it."
The staff in school truly loved reading your comments- they were a much needed boost and we are incredibly grateful to those who took the time to write them.
"Loving the live lessons, the support the school is giving the children and their families is amazing. Thank you."
We asked you, "On a scale of 1-5, how happy are you with the remote provision being offered to your child?" and our average score from 128 responses was 4.5!
"The provision is excellent quality and my son is thriving on the lessons, he loves his teacher and wants to learn."
The staff are working very hard to try and cater for everyone and keep the children in school and online engaged and learning. Of course , there was feedback which has given us areas for us to work on but this was the whole point of the survey!
As a result of the survey we are going to be having more "screen free days"- at least one a fortnight. We will try and schedule this day to be the same across the school, so that siblings do not feel it is unfair. We know that many of you are working still and juggling this, so there will be activities suggested for the day, and a timetable which you can look at the night before. However, if you are in a position to have a "day off" with your children, then please do! On this day, children in school will also be having the opportunity to take part in different activities for their wellbeing.
We are also looking at ways that we could provide some reading books and how we could provide more 1:1 intervention whilst staying Covid Safe and adhering to our safeguarding rules.
Evie goes the extra mile... well 20 actually!
In between her remote learning and completing her work, Evie has been using her daily exercise to raise money for the NHS. She set herself a target of covering 20 miles over the week which she would run, walk or cycle. Mum says that as a child that loves her screen time, this definitely was a challenge for Evie.
Evie originally came with the idea and hope to raise £50 for the NHS as she had learned that this amount could fund a tablet which enables patient's to keep in touch with their loved ones.
By the end of her challenge, Evie had raised a phenomenal £656!!
Evie we are so incredibly proud of you!

Christmas DT Day
A flashback to our Christmas DT Day and the great fun we all had!
Ash class had to use their maths as well as their Design and Technology Skills! Each resource had a price and they had to work out how much to "spend" in order to create their Christmas Decoration.
Health and Wellbeing
LSLSSP have come up with some newsletters inserts for parents/ carers for each month of the academic year. The newsletters are designed to give parents a basic understanding of health and well-being. They include links to websites for more detailed information and helplines/further support.
EPIC, who are our school psychology service have recommended these brilliant Wellbeing Conversation Starters from the charity Young Minds. It is a great infographic reminder for us all to prompt conversation about a child’s wellbeing.
Juggling work and home
