We appreciate that this is a very difficult time at the moment. If you require any help about how to support your child's learning at home then you can contact your child's class teacher via the class emails or the school office. The work set by teachers on Seesaw will be differentiated to your child's needs but if you feel that the work is too difficult or there is too much to complete then please do not worry. We understand that learning at home is not the same as learning at school. You know your child best, avoid working for lengthy periods of time if they are getting bored or frustrated. Short bursts of work may work better for you in your house. Remember that everyday activities such as cooking, playing board games or even just going for a walk are all learning opportunities.
We are here to help so please do contact us if you require any support.
If your child needs support for their speech and language you can access support from the Speechlink Parent Portal website: https://speechandlanguage.info/parents
Dear Parents and Carers,
We appreciate that this is an anxious and worrying time for all and we do not wish to add any pressure onto families. Teachers are working hard to provide work online, however if your child has additional needs then they may find this work difficult to complete. If your child is on the Special Educational Needs Register (SEN register) and has an individual support plan, please use this at home. It may have ideas and different ways to help your child access their work whilst at home, as well as the areas that your child requires specific support.
There are many websites which you may find useful if you require extra help, which I will add links to soon.
If you need any extra information or have any specific concerns you wish to discuss please contact me via the school office.
Most importantly, please try to enjoy this unplanned time at home.
