Given the recent disruption which has been caused by the coronavirus pandemic, St Luke’s have the following plans in place for remote/distance learning for the children. These are broken down into scenarios and our response is detailed underneath.

If a child is absent:

  • If they are ill with Corona virus, they will need to be off school for 10 days no work set to allow them to recover as with other illnesses.
  • If they are off because they have been in contact with someone who has corona virus (someone in their household or because track and trace have asked them to isolate). They will be off school for 10 days, staff will set work and invite them to join some class lessons via zoom.

If a class or group is asked to be at home isolated:

  • If the class teacher is well daily zoom lessons will be delivered to the class. (2 per day apart from Reception who will have 1)
  • If the class teacher is unwell daily lessons will be delivered by headteacher/ supply staff.
  • Children who do not have access to the internet will have work delivered to their home.

If the whole school is asked to isolate:

  • If the class teacher is well daily zoom lessons will be delivered to the class. (2 per day apart from Reception who will have 1)
  • If the class teacher is unwell daily lessons will be delivered by headteacher/ other class teachers/ supply staff.
  • Children who do not have access to the internet will have work delivered to their home as the school goes into isolation.
  • Children will all have access to See Saw with personal logins to allow them to have tasks set, to upload work they have done and to receive individual feedback on their learning.
  • Most Key Stage 2 children are asked to keep up their Reading Plus Reading daily. We are not able to send reading books home to the younger children but we would encourage you read daily with them using texts you have at home.
  • BBC Bitesize and The Oak Academy also provide high quality learning experiences.
  • We encourage the children to take part in some exercise every day. Joe Wicks and Oti Mabuse both provide excellent online classes. There are many other exercise classes available or the children can go for a walk with you.
  • The combination of all these, remote learning and independent work, will take pupils about 3 hours in Key Stage One and 4 hours at Key Stage Two.
  • Children who are not accessing the online content will be contacted to help them do this.
  • If the closure is part of a local or national lockdown vulnerable children and the children of critical workers will be offered a place at school. These children will access the online provision within school.
  • In order to make it possible for children in homes where there are siblings to all access live online learning the following timetable will be used:
    Afternoon
9.00 – 9.30 Y6 Maths 12.00-12.30 Y6 English
9.30 – 10.00 Y5 Maths 12.30-1.00 Y5 English
10.00 – 10.30 Y4 Maths 1.00-1.30 Y4 English
10.30 – 11.00 Y3 Maths 1.30-2.00 Reception phonics and maths
11.00 – 11.30 Y2 Maths 2.00-2.30 Y3 English
11.30 – 12.00 Y1 Maths 2.30-3.00 Y2 English

    4.00 – Whole school story / Collective worship

Parents will be sent Zoom invitations and a waiting room will be operated to ensure the safety of the children.

If a family is struggling with devices or data they are asked to contact school who will try to help.
