COVID RIsk assessments

For 2021, restrictions have changed. This Risk assessment still form the basis of our outbreak management plan.

Essential Policies

The use of Seesaw has increased parental engagement as parents can see what the children have been learning, as their work is uploaded. Homework tasks will be set which lead on from this and videos/ teaching PowerPoints are available to support pupils and their parents. The parents, pupils and teachers are able to comment on work completed or ‘like’ their work and this is a really important tool for engaging with parents. Likewise, parents can comment on their child’s reading done at home using the online reading record, which allows parents take a photo or identify a smiley face rather than having to feel they need to make a comment. Parents like this as it is non-judgmental.
