Fairfield School Covid-19 Updates
Below you will see our School Updates, Remote Learning Information, Home School Safety Agreement, Covid-19 Risk Assessment and Online Safety Updates.
YOUR CHILD HAS NOT BEEN SENT HOME YET.
THIS LETTER IS SO THAT WE ARE READY IF IT HAPPENS.
Remote Learning means work being done away from school. In this case it means work set because a child has either informed us that they need to isolate or we have had to send a class bubble home.
We are sending this material home today because by the time your child needs to isolate it would be breaching safety rules for you to come and collect it. Over the first lockdown period we set work for home which was revision of key skills mixed as internet based work and paper packs. This time we need to send new learning home or children will miss too much curriculum content.
The work being sent is based on the national curriculum and is taught online through the Oak Academy, which is the governments teaching tool. The children will need to complete an English, maths and a topic session each day. The instructions are all to be found on the sheets going home with this letter. They will meet once per day with their teacher in a Microsoft TEAMS meeting. This is called the Registration Meeting. Here we will register that children are fulfilling the legal obligation to do school work and discuss any problems or issues with the previous day’s work and discuss what is coming up next. As the children will be on camera, internet safety rules are essential and the code of conduct covering dress and background activity to ensure that all children are safe is also included in the pack.
An exercise book and a pencil is being provided ready for recording the work as we recognise that doing the work on computers will be very difficult for some families.
Remote learning is very much a second choice for the best quality of learning and teaching as we cannot provide as much feedback to children which is key to our usual success. However, the registration meeting will attempt to provide some of this feedback. We also recognise that the internet is not easy for some families to access and so we thank those who sent in responses to our computer access questionnaire. We will try to help with equipment where we can, but the government claims to have provided computers for those who need them are untrue. We are due to be given 8 laptops which we can only claim when a class is sent home. For this reason, the work has been planned so that smart phones can be used and then the work done in the exercise books.
Despite the difficulties, it is vital that the children do not fall behind other children nationally and so we trust that our parents and carers will support the work that will be set.
If you have any questions or problems please contact school. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org would be the best method but we will also try to deal with telephone queries as soon as possible.

If you are having any problems accessing the work, please contact the school via email. Thank you.
Please remember to check Parent Hub regularly - setting alerts to your phone means you will receive messages immediately.
