From Tuesday 5th January, the Government announced a National Lockdown, and that schools would once again be closed to all children other than those of workers critical to the Covid response, and those deemed vulnerable to a period of time out of school.  ALL CHILDREN SHOULD STAY AT HOME IF THEY CAN. 

 

See bottom of page for information sent home during this period of lockdown.    

 

If you think your child is eligible to attend school, please email Mrs Hunt                      headteacher@berryhill.gloucs.sch.uk  .  We will do our best to accommodate children attending, but please be aware that under our risk assessment requirements, only 25 children can attend in a bubble on any one day.

A reminder please that, if you are coming onto our site, you must keep your children with you, stay socially distant from others - 2m where possible - and please wear a mask.  Under the government's guidance, children can only be dropped and collected by someone who lives in their own household, or support bubble, or one other childcare support bubble. 

Thank you for your support in keeping our school and community safe from infection.

 

Also, just a reminder that our REMOTE LEARNING platform is now live on eschools.

Children need to access learning daily, and will find this by logging onto eschools using your child's login (see details on how to log on below).    

 

Children coming into school will also be completing the daily work for their year group, and when not in school, need to complete the set work for that day at home. 

On a Friday, please remind/support your child in completing their Friday Feedback Form.  This document is a learning reflection for your child on the learning for that week, and is important in helping their class teacher know what your child has enjoyed, and what they have found more difficult.  Teachers will use this information to inform planning for remote learning, and also for addressing gaps in learning when the children return to school after lockdown.  

Remote learning is set on a daily timetable, with government recommended 3 hours for infants, and 4 hours for juniors.  With new learning each day, you will see a range of activities that are following the same curriculum that would have been taught in school, although significantly adapted by our fabulous teaching team to make their more accessible to learning at home.  

Alongside the daily learning, there are also additional activities available - such as suggestions of high quality learning websites, our myON digital platform with a wide range of available reading books, BBC bitesize.  

Teachers are also running Zoom sessions in alternate weeks for children that are not attending school.  Keep a look out for the invite arriving by email, so your child can log on, and let their teacher know how their learning is going.  To ensure these sessions are safeguarding, there is a Zoom Protocal in place that must be followed (by Teachers and by children), so please make sure you have read this.  A copy is saved below.  

If you would like support and guidance for any aspect of your child's learning, or for login information, please email your child's class teacher in the first instance. 

 

To access the platform you need to login via the school website http://www.berryhill.gloucs.sch.uk (there is a login box in the top right hand corner of the home page).  You need to login with your child's login (not your own which you have been issued with for parents evening bookings).

This login should be in your child's LINK BOOK.  If you can't locate it, please email us admin@berryhill.gloucs.sch.uk and we can provide this.
