LEARNING AT HOME
During the current restrictions on movement and the possibility of school closure, we have created a resource which will be solely dedicated to carrying information about how you can continue your child's learning from home.
We want to ensure that we are prepared so that your children’s learning is disrupted as little as possible. When new information and advice becomes available, we will update you by email and the parent reps/telephone tree.
There will also be bulletins posted on the school website home page and on Twitter. You can also check whether the school is open by going to https://www.st-stephens.richmond.sch.uk/opencheck
While the school remains closed, no parents, children or visitors will be permitted entry during the period of closure. There can be no exceptions.
We have already prepared school work for 10 days of the initial period of closure. This is tailored to your child’s year group and each child will be expected to complete at least one ‘lesson’ or ‘exercise’ per school day.
** If there is increased online traffic due to the current situation and you have problems logging on, we would expect the printed work to be completed as a minimum.
**This work does not extend into the Easter Holidays.
Please click on the relevant button below to find resources and information that relates to your child's learning.
You will be advised about school work by your Year Group teachers and support staff by email. Year Group Staff are contactable via the usual year group emails during school hours, throughout the working week, for the duration of the closure (term time only and with the usual 48 hr response policy):
- The office is contactable on firstname.lastname@example.org from 8.30 – 4.30pm during term time.
- The SENCo is contactable during term time from 8.30am – 4.30pm on email@example.com
- The Senior Leadership Team is contactable during term time on SLT@st-stephens.richmond.sch.uk for safeguarding emergencies only.
- The school switchboard will not be operational and will not be checked. Please DO NOT leave a message on the answerphone if you require an immediate response.
If the school is shut, the School Office will still be able to communicate with the school community. We can send whole school emails and will be able to update the website and Twitter, so please do keep checking these regularly for updates. We will also use the parent rep telephone tree system.
