SASF Remote Teaching/Learning
RE: Contingency Framework - Remote Teaching/Learning (Home Learning)
Following the government’s decision to close schools in January for most pupils, this means a change to the way children learn at home. The Leadership team along with teachers have worked hard to bring you our online learning platform ‘PurpleMash’ and Office 365. Login details for each student have been provided to all children and families (if you don't have these details please email the school with your child’s name and class name and we will send out your child PurpleMash or Office 365 details)
We understand that all family homes and setups vary and we are here to help by providing a rough timetable, an online set of tasks to support your child’s continued learning. Remember this is a rough guide and please balance this out with what your family can achieve each day.
The timetable details the sequenced and progressive activities/curriculum that your child is required complete each day. The relevant resources are included (Need help – go to our website – https://www.standrewandstfrancis.org/purplemash-help-videos-and-information/ Please support your child where possible.
To ensure your child continues learning during their remote learning from, their learning environment must be free from distractions so that they can concentrate. This means no phones, no TV, no radio, no computer games.
Although your child is away from school, it is vital that your child does at least one task each day.
You will receive regular PurpleMash, MS Teams and phone contact from the school Teachers and Teaching Assistants to support your child with their learning. Please be available to receive these support calls between 9am and 4pm.
Beyond February half term, the plan for school opening/closure is unclear but we are constantly monitoring the government’s advice and will be in touch with you as soon as we have more information. Please ensure that you are regularly monitoring our website and Twitter feed (@SASFschool) for the most up-to-date information.
We are aware that this is a difficult time for many families but we are committed to continuing your child’s education.
Troy Sharpe (Headteacher) and staff at SASF.
