During the pandemic, there may be times when your child will need to learn from home, for example if another family member is isolating or if a class has to close for a period.
Your child will have a shared learning grid already which is updated each half term which they can use for the first couple of days or if they are home whilst a household member is waiting for test result. If the period of isolation extends beyond a couple of days, your child’s teacher will implement remote learning.
For younger children, this will be shared on Seesaw and for older children via Hwb and Google Classroom.
To support parents, our staff have produced some ‘How to…’ guides below:
There is also further information on Hwb which can be accessed here.
There is also a page on Safeguarding and Support in the Parents Section, this has important information about digital safety, mental health, safeguarding all children and support for domestic violence.
Welsh Government have produced guidance and support for parents on Hwb in the Parents / Carers section. This includes information about accessing learning, supporting and staying safe online.
Please also look out for updates on the school app and news section of the website. We share regular updates for families in this way.
These are challenging times for all, it is vitally important to look after your own and your child’s mental health and wellbeing. Many restrictions have been placed on what we consider ‘normal life’, please don’t feel guilty for taking time out to relax and recharge the batteries.
