Following the Government announcement on 4th January, school is now closed to all pupils except those of critical workers and vulnerable children. We will send information out through the usual channels at this time, including our website, app, text messages and through the school Facebook page.
The number of children attending schools has been much higher than anticipated. The Government and Calderdale Council have sent out information to ask parents to keep their children at home whenever possible to reduce the transmission and risk to all children, members staff and families. Please see the extract below from Calderdale:
'We would urge you only to send children to school if absolutely necessary. The new variant makes it much more likely your child will catch COVID from another child if they are in the same room as them and makes it much more likely they in turn will, pass it on to other family members and friends.'
Please see below the Remote Learning Policy which sets out what you can expect from the school in terms of remote learning.
Home Learning Expectations
During this period of lockdown, it is very clear that children in school and children at home must continue with their education. In the last lockdown, schools were asked to provide childcare for the children of key workers and vulnerable children, however this time this is very different. Those children who are in school will be accessing their usual curriculum, taught in their usual classrooms and by the staff they are used to working with, wherever possible. Their work will be marked during these sessions and feedback provided, and any further work planned from this.
The children at home will access the same work through Seesaw – an online platform where we will upload the same tasks as those taught in the classroom. These tasks will be things the children can answer either using an electronic device or they can use paper to record their answers and then take a photo and upload it. All details for Seesaw can be found on the website and in the separate instruction letter. Their work will be marked every afternoon and teachers will send feedback through Seesaw. Where children have asked for further help or intervention is needed, then staff from within the class will ring the following morning to talk through the learning.
Children in Nursery and Reception will receive a range of daily tasks, covering their usual curriculum.
All children from Years 1 to 6 will have Literacy and Maths activities every morning and theme work in the afternoon. They will also have access to Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars where we will continue to run regular competitions.
We are very pleased to share our latest Ofsted report from the inspection on 10th and 11th March.
Ofsted have judged Cliffe Hill as a 'GOOD' school once again, with 'Outstanding' Personal Development.
