St George's Primary School - Welcome
We are proud to welcome you to our school and this website. Our aim is that the website is a 'one stop shop' for families.
Across the country all of us have faced challenges to determine how we best respond to the threat of the coronavirus. St George’s is no different. We are currently closed except for children attending Emergency School following the Prime Minister's announcement of a national lockdown on the 4th of January 2021.
Now that our safety plan is secure and operating well, it is important that we clarify our expectations for managing children's education in lockdown.
All children should be accessing full-time education. During lockdown, we have organised learning so children can access either full-time education at Emergency School in their secure bubbles or through our structured model of remote learning. Children will flourish if they access either of these models because we will provide continuity and feedback. A hybrid approach is not recommended; that will result in a lack of continuity and disruption to learning.
We will support any family with learning at home with professional guidance from our team, access to laptops and wireless routers, and printed materials.
1. You can keep upto date on the school's Covid-19 position and safety plan on our managing coronavirus page.
2. All families should be also receiving messages via Scholar Pack. If you are not getting these please contact us. Our e-mail address is email@example.com.
4. Our Emergency School is now full. We have allocated over 400 places to children of critical workers or those designated as vulnerable. Please remember to only use your place if it is essential. All children registered should attend school every day.
5. At the top of the page you will find our Pastoral Support icon This section has lots of advice for families on a range of topics including safeguarding, mental heath, online safety and other critical issues. Get in touch if you need support. Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. We can support remote learning in lockdown. We have loaned 75 laptops to families and 22 wireless broadband routers. We do have access to more laptops, wireless routers and 4G SIM cards to support children learning remotely in lockdown. If your child would benefit from one of these, please contact us by e-mailing email@example.com.
We have set up a remote learning help page using the icons on the top of the page or you can read that by clicking here. Includes a full remote learning guide that explains what you should expect from home learning. We hope this is helpful for our families. It is a requirement from the Department of Education that every school has this guide published. This can be read by clicking here.
7. We are working hard to get free school meal vouchers to families whose children is not in emergency school. We are aiming to get these sent to families from 15th January. If you believe you are elegible and have not received these please contact us by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Dragon Club remains open to families registered in Emergency School. You can communicate with Dragon Club through the link below:
9. Access the department for education's advice for parents and carers during school closures by clicking here.
11. We think the Nosy Crow book for children about the Coronavirus is a brilliant resource. It is written by doctors and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. It is a really good FREE resource for developing discussions with your children. Access it here.
