Ingoldsby Update February 2021

February is already upon us! You have made it through a whole month of remote learning and you should be proud of the support that you have given your children in these difficult times.

Attendance in live meetings and lessons, particularly in KS2 is fantastic and has helped children to independently access work.

If you need help setting up Teams, please do let us know.

Goodbye and good luck!

It is with sadness that we say goodbye to Mrs Bishop who begins a new chapter of her life. Mrs Bishop has worked at Ingoldsby for 17 years. We warmly wish her all the best of luck for her future endeavours.

Help with wifi

Please get in touch with us if you do not have wifi and need it to access home learning.

Additional devices

If you are struggling , sharing devices between siblings or you are using devices that are not working well please let me know. We have a few different ways that we may be able to support.

Support available

Have you heard about 'GRACE'? St John's church, in Grantham, is open EVERY DAY from 1-3pm as a place for people to go, who need a little bit of extra help. It is available to distribute foodbank vouchers, furniture and comfort care packages for the homeless. Extra social distancing and sanitisation methods have been put in place to keep both visitors and volunteers safe.

​It also offers clothes, bedding, household goods, personal goods, food and drinks.

​People can donate gifts and items direct to the church between 1-3pm every day or drop them at Robert Holland Funeral Directors in town. Donations can also be given through PayPal to paypal@grace-trust.uk

All physical donations are left untouched for 72 hours to adhere to Coronavirus guidelines before they are sanitised and distributed to the local community.

Transport to School

If your child is starting primary school or transferring to secondary school in September 2021 they may be eligible for school transport. If you think your child is eligible please apply for transport as soon as you have your offer of a school place. Applications can be made online at the website below or a telephone application can be made by contacting the Customer Service Centre on 01522 782020.

For more information about the home to school transport policy and online applications please go to www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/school-college-transport . Queries can be emailed to schooltransportapplications@lincolnshire.gov.uk .

Mental Health Week

We have planned activities each day to support mental wellbeing. Don't forget that your mental wellbeing is important too.

Many of us are at home with babies, toddlers, children and/or teenagers. We might be balancing work and caring responsibilities and/or supporting our children’s education.

Now, more than ever, parenting is about doing the best we can, with what we have.

Routines and structure are important for children. We hope that live lessons take some of the pressure off you. Bear with us as we negotiate new ways of working and new technology. We'll keep trying to improve the learning experience for all.

Sporting Activities

There is a lot going on in our sporting community. Here is a little taste.

Music Challenges

KS2

The challenge is to master the 'Cup routine', seen most recently in Pitch Perfect, but with a considerable back story dating back to the 1980s!

Please see attached information for parents regarding internet safety. This has some updated information about bullying, the Fortnite game and a game aimed at children which normalises the criminal exploitation of children and vulnerable adults known as 'county lines'.

Take care and keep in touch. We are here if you need us!
