Yanwath Primary School is now a HUB school, it is open for the most vulnerable pupils and the children of key workers. The provision is only for when parents are working. The timings are from 8:30am to 4pm; if you need to arrange an earlier collection, please let us know. We have two hubs running; Nursery and Reception and Year 1 to Year 6. This is to reduce the mixing of pupils.
For the rest of the children, home learning is provided. We will be delivering our remote learning of the National Curriculum for Spring Term 1 via Teams. Class teachers have worked hard to develop a timetable of live teaching sessions that they will also record. Therefore, if your child misses the lesson they can watch it later. We will also be providing exercise books for children to record their work in at home and pencil cases with most of the equipment they will need.
If you are unable to access the remote teaching via teams please speak to your child’s class teacher and they will make alternative arrangements with you.
Even though there will be a host of live teaching sessions, children will be expected to carry out some independent work at home following the timetable sent by their teachers. Children across school are able to work independently and access most of the activities on their own. Therefore, please give them minimal input. We would really like to see what work they can do on their own.
Our expectations of children:
• To engage with the remote learning through attending live sessions and submitting work to
• To follow the teacher guidance.
• To complete the list of tasks set by the teachers either daily or weekly.
• To ask for help when needed as they would do if they were in. Please do this via the
message you have from your teacher.
• To behave as they would if they were in school
• To not use the chat or private message to talk to friends or use Teams as a social platform to
call other children on.
Our expectations of parents:
• To enable children to access live or recorded learning.
• Engage with the teacher if you are having difficulty.
• Send evidence of learning at the end of the school day to the teacher.
• Allow children to work independently enabling you to work from home. As children have access to their class teacher, they can support learning, allowing you time to work from home.
• Ask for help!
• Let us know if you are self-isolating or test positive and if your child is well enough or not to continue with their learning.
