COVID-19 and Remote Learning INFORMATION
general covid-19 information
Please be vigilant. If your child displays any of the following symptoms they should go for a pcr test and isolate until you have the results.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
What to do if you or your child has symptoms:
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
Book a PCR test for the person showing symptoms as soon as possible to check if they have coronavirus.
The person who is symptomatic should stay at home and not have visitors until the test result – only leave your home to have a test.
If the result is positive that person will need to isolate for 10 days from the onset of their symptoms as well as all members of the household. You should alert any known contacts so that they too can be tested.

Q and A about our remote learning offer
If your child has to isolate they will switch to remote learning. Our main platform for remote learning is Seesaw. All children from nursery to Year 6 have a log in. If you need your login re-sending, please contact school and we will be happy to help.
Shield Row Primary - Remote Learning Plan
Example Weekly Plan - Reception
Example Weekly Plan - KS1/ KS2
Teachers will upload pre-recorded teaching clips, teaching slides, audio explanations, worksheets, activities, challenges and links to other websites to support children's learning. The times on the daily schedules are just guidance - you can spend less or more time on each activity (depending what your child needs) and you can do the activities in any order. It is vital that each day's learning is carried out, as lessons are progressive and each day builds on the day before.
Teachers and Teaching Assistants monitor Seesaw throughout the day. Feedback will be offered to the children for work they upload to their portfolio.
home learning sites
Seesaw will be the primary tool for setting work for remote learning. The staff may also signpost to other sites below for different activities.
