Parent Feedback – Remote Learning

We were absolutely thrilled to receive this email from one of our parents regarding our Remote Learning provision which was also sent to Osfted.

“As Gavin Williamson has asked parents to report schools providing poor remote learning to their students, I feel it’s only fair to report excellent support and provision too.

My son attends year 3 at Chalton Lower School in Chalton, LU4 and they have been superb. Excellent support and work provided – including a higher level provision so he’s not bored. His teacher has been in touch several times to check he’s doing well and has all needs addressed – including sending extra work focussing on his passion subjects (Maths and Science).

My daughter attends year 5 at Parkfields Middle School in Toddington, LU5 and her working day through Google Classroom has been nothing short of exemplary. A few changes to her “in school” timetable to streamline online lessons and she has a structured day with all lessons ably catered for. Again, her class teachers and pod teacher are easily contactable – as is her head of year five and staff assisting with IT support. Superb.

I commend them both and feel their efforts have ensured both children did not struggle with the sudden change to online learning (despite the incredibly short notice given to the schools) and they are not missing out on their education as they could so easily be, given the pandemic.”

School situation & Home Schooling @ 5/01/2021

Message from 05/01/2021

Due to recent government guidelines, the School is currently closed and only open to vulnerable children and children of keyworkers.

Just to remind you that you can contact staff by email. They will only look at emails before school and in the evening at some point. They will respond, but please be aware they are teaching the keyworker children in school so it will not be during the day.

Please can you upload a photograph of their literacy work [and phonics for Reception] every day. Staff will respond with comments that are needed. You can also send in anything else you wish for the teachers to see. It might be pictures of them completing their tasks for the Reception.

Please could the children write on the page the Learning Objective [LO] and date. They normally do this.

Staff will phone you during the week – Reception and year 3 / 4 on Thursday afternoon. Year 1 and 2 on a Friday afternoon.

Miss Mudd would like to speak to the children when she calls.

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF THEY CAN’T DO THE WORK. WE CAN ADJUST IT!

Don’t forget the children can access Oxford Owl for reading books, Purple Mash, Mathletics and Teach your Monster to ReadIf you have forgotten passwords, then email you class teacher and they can give them to you.
