As we face into the third week of remote teaching and we are learning that this situation may continue for longer than we originally expected it's important that we pace ourselves and just do the best we can to support the children. The teachers are maintaining contact and delivering the curriculum through the various media. Remember for young children everything is learning and all activities will develop their language skills,hand eye co-ordination and fine motor skills.
In terms of our special needs pupils we have a plan in place to deliver a face to face teaching situation to these pupils. It will involve our Resource teachers and SNAs. We have been in touch with the parents of all children involved and while some parents have, understandably, said they would not send their children in at the moment others have indicated that they would take part. If the plan is given the green light we will be in touch with more details.
The top priority has to be safety and even though this is not where any of us want to be it's where we are and we can only do our best.
Thank you for your continued co-operation and take care,
