Brynmill Primary Remote and Blended Learning for Children affected by COVID 19
The Local Authority are supporting schools by putting together a learning continuity template, in the meantime, we thought it wise to put something together for times when remote learning may be needed.
*For tutorials to access any of the digital learning platforms, please follow this link:
Times when Remote or Blended learning may be needed:
- If your child is awaiting a test or test result there will be a work pack linked in J2E for them to use. It will be called the “Waiting for a test result pack.” This pack should only be used should your child be waiting for a test result. Pupils are also encouraged to access tasks that continue to be set in school on J2E and Teams.
- If a child has to stay in quarantine for 10/14 days due to them or a family member testing positive for Coronavirus or if a child has to quarantine for 14 days following an overseas holiday to a country not on the governments’ safe travel list, we have made a “My Quarantine Pack” available through a link in J2E. A hard copy is available on request, although please bear in mind that some tasks may have to be adapted if they include interactive links. Pupils are also encouraged to access tasks that continue to be set in school on J2E and Teams.
- If the class contact group or bubble has been told by Public Health Wales/ Track, Trace & Protect that they must self-isolate for a period of 14 day quarantine due to a case of COVID 19 in that bubble In this instance, remote learning will be available, unless the class teacher shows signs of COVID 19 and becomes unwell (in this situation no teaching can be provided in the short term while plans are put in place).
A blended model using the Hwb platform, J2e and where appropriate, Microsoft Teams will be used. The class teacher will have the ability to use recorded and live sessions as well as check in phone calls to support continuity of learning.
During this time, your child will need to continue to undertake schoolwork at home. If it is at all possible, it would be beneficial for children to follow their normal routine and be ready to start their school tasks in the morning.
Teachers will set an outline of tasks needed to be completed via live and recorded sessions, links in J2e and Microsoft Teams, dependant on the age of the child. Reception children’s’ activities can be sent through Class Dojo.
Teachers will indicate whether a task needs to be returned as a file, link or upload a video/photo of completed work. Once again, please see our tutorials page how to do this. If you have any questions about this, please contact your child’s teacher via Class Dojo. Teachers will be available during school hours to support pupils and parents. For live sessions to be used, parents MUST complete the required consent, as per Welsh Government guidance.
