Please be assured that staff are contactable each day during our term times and are available to support pupils through their Online Teaching and Learning Programme. It is a good idea that we set out some parameters at the beginning to help us all find a way to work efficiently and productively together:
To enable the staff to have sufficient time to mark and return work and to prepare work for the following day, please do not expect responses to emails after 3.30pm each day.

Getting the Most From Online Learning
We will release regular resources for parents to help you navigate the new world of online learning programmes for your child. We will update you regularly on new content, including parent webinars. The first of these will be the week after the Easter holidays and will be about preparing your child for learning in the Summer term.
Be Well Tips and Advice for Families
Our focus on wellbeing has never been more important. We are supporting our families and our people in managing the impact of coronavirus with new focused content in the area of wellbeing. These include a range of ‘Cognita Be Well Tips’ on dealing with school closures and talking to your child about coronavirus. More on these and other resources can be found on the Cognita website.
Support with Technical Issues
While the school buildings are closed, our learning continues remotely and online. It is important that your hardware and software at home, whoever they belong to, work smoothly in support of your child’s learning.
We are offering a technical support service to help address any issues relating to online learning that may arise for your family. To access our technical support, you can contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This goes through directly to our team of IT experts. We will then follow up with you through whichever communication channel you prefer, including by phone, to resolve the issue. You may email us at any time and our staff will follow up during business hours, Monday-Friday.
Newsletter and Social Media
We will be sending a weekly newsletter to share the children’s work, news and activities. Please remember to upload pictures of your child’s work on to Seesaw so we can choose some to showcase within the newsletter and across our social media channels.
