The video learning sessions will not be facilitated by your child’s class teacher if the teacher is the one experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. At times, your child may have video learning sessions presented by the other teacher in their year group (for example if your child’s teacher has a young child that requires childcare or is experience Covid-19 symptoms). Work may be marked and responded to by Teaching Assistants in order to allow teachers the time to create lesson content and deliver video sessions. We know our parents will understand that the health and wellbeing of our children, families and staff is paramount.

E-Safety whilst Learning At Home
Learning about Online Safety at Home - Packs to use with your Child
Parents can protect their children online at home by following some e-safety tips:
- Keep computers in a central place. This will make it easier to keep an eye on children’s activities.
- Teach children about internet safety as it’s impossible to monitor their online activity all the time. Explain why it’s important not to arrange in-person meetings with people they meet online, and why they shouldn’t share personal information with online strangers because people may not be who they claim to be..
- Use Google’s SafeSearch to keep adult content out of your child’s search results – if you’re worried about children removing the SafeSearch setting without your knowledge you can protect it with a password.
- As entertaining as interactive gaming is, be aware that children can speak, using their own voice, with strangers online. Take advantage of any Parental Control settings built in to the game or the console or PC and monitor your child’s online use as far as you can.
- Be aware of cyber bullies and explain to your child that it is important that they don’t respond or retaliate to a cyber bully. If they are cyber-bullied, make sure they tell you about it.
- If your child is being harassed by a classmate or another player online, follow the game’s reporting procedures to make them aware of what’s going on.
Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.
