Nurturing Today, Empowering Tomorrow

COVID19

Currently, Springhead Park Primary is open to the children of Critical Workers and Vulnerable Children. The majority of our pupils are continuing their education remotely until at least March 8th.

 

Please contact the school office if you require your child to attend the Key Worker Bubble 

Live Sessions and Assignments

 

At Springhead Park Primary, all pupils will have access to live daily lessons using Microsoft Teams as the platform and also assignments set by teachers which will also be shared using Microsoft Teams. Live lessons have the following advantages:

 

  • the interaction is good for everyone's wellbeing
  • teachers will be able to support pupils on a more personal basis, allowing pupils to ask questions in real time and adapting their content to match pupil needs
  • the routine will help to structure the day for pupils and their families, meaning that the children have regular and consistent 'learning time' which families can arrange their day around

 

The live sessions which are taught will vary according to the age and developmental stage of the children attending them, however generally, pupils will have access to a live English and Maths lesson on a daily basis. They will also be set assignments following these sessions.

 

 

Each Year group has the following lessons and assignments set each day.

Returning to school- all pupils

 

When it is safe for us to reopen to all pupils, our strategy to keep the pupils, staff and wider community safe is based upon two principles:

  1. Using ‘bubbles’ to keep children and staff in the same groups throughout the day,
  2. Strict Hygiene Measures

 

Bubbles

 

At Springhead Park Primary we will operate within four bubbles

  • A Nursery Bubble - Hedgehog class
  • A Reception Bubble - Koala Class and Panda Class
  • A Year 1-2 Bubble - Fox Class
  • A Year 3-4 Bubble - Gecko Class

 

Within each bubble children will be able to interact with one another and the adults within the bubble. They will be able to use and share resources allocated within their bubble. In the Fox and Gecko Classes, the children will be asked to face the front of the classroom when the teacher is teaching, however they will also be encouraged to interact with one another.

 

Entrances and Exits

 

We have arranged entrance and exits to keep children within these bubbles. Please see below for your child’s entry and exit point. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For Nursery Parents, the entry times are exactly as already shared:

9:00am-12:00pm and 12:30pm- 3:30pm.

 

On all other entrances, the doors/gates will open in the morning at 8:35am and remain open until 8:50am. This should allow parents to drop off siblings in different places and also avoid congregations of families around the school. Teachers will be on the doors ready to meet and greet you, whilst the class’s Learning Support Assistants will be supervising the children in the classrooms for that period.

 

PLEASE WEAR A FACEMASK AT ALL TIMES WHEN COLLECTING AND DROPPING OFF YOUR CHILD

 

The school closes at 3:15pm, so please collect your child(ren) from the same places. 

 

Lunchtimes

 

At lunchtimes staff and children will remain in their bubbles. Eating and playing together, however without interacting with children from the other bubbles. Staff will also remain within their adult bubbles to reduce the risk and avoid the need to wear masks.

 

Strict Hygiene Measures

 

Whilst in school we will insist upon strict hygiene measures from all staff, visitors and pupils. These will include:

  • Regular handwashing
  • Sanitising Stations around the school
  • Doors / windows to remain open
  • Teachers will teach ‘handwashing techniques’
  • Catch it, kill it, bin it posters and teaching
  • Regular cleaning of surfaces and resources
  • Avoidance of soft furnishings and resources (e.g. teddy bears)
  • Designated toilets
