Welcome to your Home Learning Page!

Our staff will be updating this page on a daily basis. If you have any questions or want to send work to us please use the email address homeworky6@reginaldmitchell.staffs.sch.uk

What will the expectations be on teachers?

· To provide home learning each day

· To respond to learning and give feedback via the class email address above

· To respond to questions about the learning from parents, carers and the pupils themselves

· To email directly any parents, who we have not had contact with

· To celebrate great online learning

What expectations do we have on yourselves as parents and carers?

· To communicate with school, sharing the home learning with the teacher via the class email address regularly

· To ensure your children have time to do their learning, where possible, on a daily basis

 

Our top priority is to ensure that our children are safe and that their education continues so if we do not have contact with you, the follows steps will be taken:

1. Your child’s teacher will email you using the email you have provided to school

2. If we do not receive a response then your child’s teacher will text you, sharing the class email address with you so you can remain in contact with school

3. If your child’s teacher does not receive an email after they have text you, they will call you in order to offer support with the learning at home

If your child’s teacher is not able to speak with you, then this will be referred to Mrs Rourke. It is important that we know you are safe and that you are able to support your child with their learning and that you are safe and well.
