    Changes regarding welfare, health and wellbeing for your children

    If there is any information or change that parents feel is important to share relating to your child’s welfare, health and well- being since last being in school, please do ensure that you communicate this to our Family Liaison Officer prior to the children's return. This will allow us to provide the appropriate support around your child. Mrs Harris can be contacted via her email, yharris@sacredheart.merton.sch.uk

     

    Uniform

    We are asking children to wear full school uniform and look forward to seeing children looking smart.

     

    Teaching plans for return to school

    The teaching and learning plans have been designed to assess and consolidate what has been taught in remote learning, identifying gaps to incorporate into teaching plans. Assessment opportunities have been planned each week throughout the remainder of the spring term. We have incorporated assessment opportunities into remote learning in KS1 and KS2 with the daily rehearsal of skills on Numbots (KS1) and Times Tables Rockstars (KS2). Pupils in Years 2 upwards will also be completing short daily reading quizzes. Upon return, we will continue to teach the full breadth of curriculum subjects with our usual strong focus on pastoral and well-being to support children. With high quality daily teaching and learning in school, children will quickly adapt to the positive and familiar learning behaviours and routines in school.

     

    Lunch time

    Children who are in year groups Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to universal free school meals and will be served a hot lunch, if they prefer instead they may bring in their own packed lunch. For children in Years 3-6 some may be entitled to FSM, others may choose to pay for a hot lunch or bring in their own packed lunch.

     

    Health and Safety measures in place

    The protective Covid measures will continue to be in place:

    • Children will be in a year group bubble and therefore will not be mixing inside school with any other year group.

    • Frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices

    • Regular daily and deep cleaning of our school including toilets (lunch time and end of day)

    • Ensuring good ventilation inside classrooms

    • We will also continue to teach children and expect them to follow our additional school rules (washing hands, keeping a safe distance from others, keeping to the left side of the corridor etc) under our 4 school rules: we are safe, we make good choices, we are kind and we do our best

    • Avoiding contact with anyone with symptoms (continuation of measures to ensure no-one who has symptoms is attending school). Please note that symptoms include a high temperature and/or persistent cough and loss of smell and taste. Any member of the community whether that be staff, children or parents, with these symptoms must not attend school, should seek a test and self-isolate and notify school of the test outcome.
