Home learning

St Mary’s CEVA Home learning offer

We will be offering live learning sessions through Google Classroom.  The teacher will provide a short input to your session and then set the children a task to do.  These sessions are designed for the children’s participation and therefore parent involvement in these sessions is not required.

 

As this is a new initiative for the school we do expect there to be issues which may impact on the process. We ask you to be patient and bear with us. After two weeks we will ask for feedback about the system.

  • Pupils listen carefully and begin the task as soon as the teacher has finished talking.
  • The school behaviour policy applies to the remote learning lessons.
  • If a child has a problem, please explain the issue in the class chat.
  • Pupils are expected to ‘attend’ all lessons they are invited to. They should not join any lessons that a member of staff has not invited them to join.

 

SEND provision

Provision for our SEND children is entirely personalised to their needs and based on their individual learning journey. Class teachers will work closely with parents to ensure that they have the right provision for their child where they are not working within the age related expectations. Class teachers will also be closely supported by the SENDCO, Mrs Adams, to ensure that they are confident in being able to provide for children working from home. 

If you have any questions about your child's needs then feel free to contact our SENDCO at senco@stmarysthornbury.com

 

The SEND Covid helpline for parents is open as an email box. Parents can email the helpline with their queries and leave their phone number. An appropriate professional will ring them back. This aims to support communication with schools and agencies and to answer parent’s queries. The email address is SENSCovidEnquiry@southglos.gov.uk
