Family Learning – Supporting your Primary Child through Lockdown

Good afternoon

I hope that you are all well.

Here we are again, finding ourselves in the thick of it!

Here at Family Learning, we are still working extremely hard to continue to support your school and your families through this difficult time.

We hope to still offer an hour or two for them to have a guided focus to do something fun with their child.

We are in the process of putting together a time table of one off Workshops which parents can cherry pick and just drop in for one session. We think that by not having the full length courses, this may be more accessible for them.

We are looking at one off sessions including;

  • Emotional and behaviour support
  • Mother and Baby group
  • Healthy Eating
  • Story Boxes
  • Support with Home Schooling
  • Family Art for wellbeing
  • And a few more ideas in the pipe line….

In the mean time we would like to offer all schools our latest online course, which we believe will be highly supportive.

Supporting your Primary School Child through Lockdown, is a short three week course for parents and children starting on Monday 25th January. It will cover things like; supporting emotional stress, behaviour and routine, missing social/family interaction, helping children to understand their changing world.

This all looks very ‘heavy’, but our tutor, Debbie Kinsey is extremely fun and motivating and has great communication skills at all levels. She will integrate these topics in fun, relaxed activities that will hopefully be highly supportive to both parent and child.

Childcare

More information.

There are several ways that parents and carers can continue to access childcare:

● Early Years settings (including nurseries and childminders) remain open ●

Vulnerable children and children of critical workers can continue to use registered childcare, childminders and other childcare activities (including wraparound care)

● parents are able to form a childcare bubble with one other household for the purposes of informal childcare, where the child is under 14. This is mainly to enable parents to work, and must not be used to enable social contact between adults

● some households will also be able to benefit from being in a support bubble ● nannies will be able to continue to provide services, including in the home

Key workers and vulnerable

Good evening all, what a day!!!!!!

Firstly, our thoughts and prayers go to you all in this difficult time. We thank our nhs hero key workers for keeping us safe and all of you who are keeping us going (including the staff here!)

I am so proud of our online offer of seesaw and we will see you all on that tomorrow. We do have technology we can lend out.
CHILDREN MUST BE COMPLETING WORK ONLINE. And we will contact you regularly about it.

We can open as planned for those key workers and vulnerable pupils who have booked in. We had planned based on our original risk assessment, and although this may need some adjustment we can make it happen. If you have not booked in today, we cannot accommodate you tomorrow.

If you situation has changed and you don’t want the place- message us so we can offer it to someone else.

If you need a place and you can price you are a critical worker please message us. We have limited places

I will send a longer message tomorrow.
But for now, keep safe and reach out if you need anything.

Mr Fox and all the team.
