Stag Lane Remote Learning Contingency Plan – COVID-19

The COVID – 19 pandemic impacts on all aspects of our lives and it is currently unclear what will happen in the future. To ensure we are fully prepared for all eventualities, the aim of this plan is to give all stakeholders clear understanding of their roles, in the event of any partial or full school closure, to ensure pupils to continue to learn.

Full Closure of Stag Lane

In the event of a full or part closure
• Children already have exercise books to record their learning in.
• They also have an equipment pack which includes writing implements and other learning tools appropriate to their age and stage, e.g. pencil, writing pen, purple pen ruler, rubber, sharpener, dry-wipe board pen, white board, number square, number line
• A list of their logins to appropriate online learning platforms eg TTRockstars. Mathletics, bug club
The Headteacher and Senior Leadership team will:
• Ensure those families entitled to Free School Meals will be provided with food in line with Government guidance

• Provide access to the learning offered for their children or tell the school of any issues so the school can act promptly to help.
• Support their children by emailing the teacher pictures of completed work for assessment and feedback where this is appropriate

Key Worker & Vulnerable Children, in case of full closure:

If it is appropriate for Stag Lane to be open to Key Worker and Vulnerable Pupils, they will be placed into Bubbles with at least 4 consistent members of staff. They will complete all SEESAW remote learning set by their class teachers on iPads/computers whilst at school.

Class Closures/Partial Closure

If a class, a Bubble, a number of classes, or a number of Bubbles have to close due to a positive COVID-19 test, then they will follow the procedure described for full CHPA closure as above.
Key Workers and Vulnerable Pupils would not be on site, if they are part of any closed group due to a positive COVID19 test.
If the class teacher is ill and unable to work, another member of staff usually the Year Group Leader will take over their role and ensure the remote learning is set up and running as described.
I hope you find this information clear and helpful.
Stay Safe!
