Information for Parents: Covid-19

This page is a regularly updated one stop shop for information regarding actions being taken by school in light of Covid-19. We hope this will help communication to be clear and helpful. If there is anything you are unsure of after reading this page please contact the office on 01135351000 or office@shakespeareleeds.org.uk

We would like to thank all our families for the support you have shown school in these uncertain times. We will continue to work with the health and wellbeing of your children at the forefront of our minds. In line with DfE expectations, school is now closed to most children. For children in school, there are a wide range of adjustments and changes to how school runs. All of the measures put in place are to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. The key systems of control to consider at all times as identified by the DfE and PHE are:

  1. Minimise contact between individuals and maintain social distancing wherever possible
  2. Clean hands thoroughly more often than usual as well as before and after handling shared resources
  3. Ensure ventilation of fresh air is maximised
  4. Good respiratory hygiene: ‘Catch it-bin it-kill it’
  5. Enhanced cleaning of frequently touched surfaces

Home Learning from January 2021

Home Learning from January 2021

Home Learning

LOCKDOWN THREE:

Following the Government announcement for all schools to move to online learning for this half term our Home Learning offer will be available from 9:00am Wednesday 6th January 2021. In line with government guidance our home learning offer aims to:

  • set learning tasks so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects

  • set work that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, and as a minimum 3 hours a day, on average, across the school cohort

  • provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher through high-quality curriculum resources or videos

A 10 day lesson plan will be emailed out to all parents every two weeks. The lesson plan has been designed by our teachers to ensure all pupils are able to learn whilst at home. Our mornings start at 9am with half an hour exercise with Joe Wicks on Youtube on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and with our PE Team challenges on our school Youtube account on Tuesdays and Thursdays. At 9:30am each day class teachers will be on the DB Primary Year Group Community pages for an online register and morning chat. The work outlined on the second page of this letter will also be shared in the forum each day and sent by email to each child.

After the online register and morning chat, each day of learning at home includes an English and Maths lesson as well as a daily lesson from another subject in the curriculum.  Pupils should work through each of the lessons and complete all of the tasks.  Each day, one task is chosen for the pupils to send in to their teacher by 1pm. This task can be found on the final column of the table below. This should be sent by email on DB Primary.  Your child’s class teacher will confirm they have received the work and also then give feedback to the class by email by the end of that day.
