Rudgwick Primary School is operating remote learning for all children from Tuesday 5th January and the school will be open for children of critical workers from Wednesday 6th January.
Monday 4th January 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you for bearing with us while we finalise the plan for tomorrow.
No doubt you will be well aware of the national lockdown that will be in place for all school children from tomorrow. Remote learning will be in place for all children from tomorrow morning. The local authority have advised that we remain closed tomorrow to enable us to prepare to open for vulnerable and critical worker children from Wednesday; further information will follow for those children in this group. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 1pm tomorrow to confirm your critical worker status and the children you will need places for, and on which days.
You can check if your occupation is included by clicking on the link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision
As I said during the last lockdown, please consider carefully if there is an option to keep your child at home and only request a place if there is no other feasible option available. If your child has an EHCP you also have the option of a place and we would appreciate an email to let us know whether or not you would like your child to attend. If your child has a social worker, you will also have a place at school.
Online learning will be available from tomorrow morning via Google classroom and there will be a short live teacher meet for each class at the following times each day starting tomorrow:
Yr 6 – 9am
Yr 5- 9.10am
Yr 4 – 9.20am
Yr 3 – 9.30am
Yr 2 – 9.40am
Yr 1 – 9.50am
Yr R – 10.00am
We thank you for your continued support and understanding during these challenging times. If you are in need of further support, please do contact us and we will be able to direct you to people who can help, if that is not us. We are here to support all of our families at this very difficult time.
Take great care of yourselves and stay safe,
