Updated 02.04.2020 at 6.30pm

 

Dear Parent/Carer

 

I have seen some great work from lots of children over the last couple of weeks and am really pleased with the effort put in, this will put them in a good position for when the school does re-open in due-course.

 

We will not be setting any work for the children now until Monday 20th April when we will return to our online learning. If there are any changes in the meantime, we will of course keep you updated.

 

Those whose children are eligible for benefits-related free school meals have now been sent an email with further details.

 

Once again I would just like to draw your attention to the updated Safeguarding Policy on our website and also some useful information and contact details during this time.

 

The Department for Education coronavirus helpline is available to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care. Staff, parents and young people can contact this helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday), 10am to 4pm (Saturday to Sunday)

 

Should you need to contact a member of school staff during the holiday period, you can via Dojo or by emailing office@st-edmunds.norfolk.sch.uk, we will get back to you as soon as we can.

 

Please stay safe and stay at home.

 

Happy Easter

Dear Parents/Carers

Thank you for your support so far in these uncertain times. Please take note of the following:

  • All children who are in school today will be bringing their work pack home.
  • As per previous communication, work packs for other children are available from the shelter in the car park.  Any packs not collected today will be put out again on Monday. 
  • If you are self-isolating, please do not come into the school building.
  • If you have said you need a place for your child next week so you can still do your job, you will have been contacted to confirm this.  No other children should come to school next week.
  • While your children are not at school, you should make sure that they stay at home and are not out playing or out in other places as per government guidelines.
  • Staff will be in school and the phone lines will still be answered during school times if you have any questions or any concerns.

We will continue to update you as and when we have information.

Stay Safe

 

Mrs Graver

 

Russian:

Уважаемые родители / опекуны

Спасибо за вашу поддержку в эти неопределенные времена. Пожалуйста, обратите внимание на следующее:

• Все дети, которые сегодня ходят в школу, будут приносить свои рабочие пакеты домой.

• Как и в предыдущем сообщении, рабочие пакеты для других детей можно получить в приюте на парковке. Любые пакеты, не собранные сегодня, будут снова выпущены в понедельник.

• Если вы изолируете себя, не входите в здание школы.

• Если вы сказали, что вам нужно место для вашего ребенка на следующей неделе, чтобы вы все еще могли выполнять свою работу, с вами свяжутся, чтобы подтвердить это. Другие дети не должны приходить в школу на следующей неделе.

• Пока ваших детей нет в школе, вы должны следить за тем, чтобы они оставались дома и не играли или не играли в других местах в соответствии с государственными рекомендациями.

• Сотрудники будут в школе, и на телефонные линии все равно будут приходить ответы в школьные часы, если у вас возникнут какие-либо вопросы или проблемы

Мы будем продолжать обновлять вас, поскольку у нас есть информация.

Оставайтесь в безопасности

Mrs Graver

 

 

Lituanian:

Mieli tėvai / globėjai

Ačiū už palaikymą iki šiol šiais neaiškiais laikais. Atkreipkite dėmesį į šiuos dalykus:

• Visi vaikai, kurie šiandien lankosi mokykloje, atsineš savo darbo paketą namo.

• Kaip ir ankstesniame bendravime, kitų vaikų darbo paketus galite gauti iš pastogės automobilių stovėjimo aikštelėje. Šiandien nesurinktos pakuotės vėl bus išleidžiamos pirmadienį.

• Jei nesate izoliuoti, neveskite į mokyklos pastatą.

• Jei sakėte, kad kitą savaitę jums reikia vietos savo vaikui, kad galėtumėte vis tiek atlikti savo darbą, į jus bus susisiekta, kad tai patvirtintumėte. Kiti vaikai neturėtų ateiti į mokyklą kitą savaitę.

• Kol jūsų vaikai nelanko mokyklos, turėtumėte įsitikinti, kad jie lieka namuose ir neleidžia žaisti ar žaisti kitose vietose, kaip numatyta vyriausybės rekomendacijose.

• Darbuotojai lankys mokyklą, o į telefono linijas vis tiek bus atsakoma mokyklos laikais, jei kiltų klausimų ar abejonių.

Mes ir toliau jus atnaujinsime, kai turime informacijos.

Lik saugus

Mrs Graver

English:

As stated by Boris Johnson yesterday, school will remain open for the children whose parents are key workers and some other groups of children.  We are currently putting together this list.  Please complete the questionnaire if you need your child to come to school so that you can still do your job. 

 

The teachers are currently putting together work for the children for the next 2 weeks.  This will be a combination of online teaching videos, online links and books that we will have ready tomorrow for the children to take home or for someone to collect.  You will not need to print any resources off.  Most of the work will be accessed through Class Dojo.  If you are not on Class Dojo, please contact school and we will help you set this up.

 

If your child usually has a free school meal and you need some support with this until the Government organises a voucher scheme, please let us know. The school office will remain open for you to contact if you have any questions or concerns during this period.

 

Russian:

Как заявил вчера Борис Джонсон, школа будет открыта для детей, чьи родители являются ключевыми работниками, и некоторых других групп детей. В настоящее время мы составляем этот список. Пожалуйста, заполните анкету, если вам нужно, чтобы ваш ребенок пришел в школу, чтобы вы все еще могли выполнять свою работу.

 

В настоящее время учителя собирают работу для детей на следующие 2 недели. Это будет комбинация онлайновых обучающих видео, онлайн-ссылок и книг, которые у нас будут готовы завтра, чтобы дети могли забрать их домой или кого-то собрать. Вам не нужно будет распечатывать какие-либо ресурсы. Большая часть работы будет доступна через Class Dojo. Если вы не в классе Dojo, пожалуйста, свяжитесь со школой, и мы поможем вам это настроить.

 

Если ваш ребенок обычно получает бесплатное школьное питание и вам нужна некоторая поддержка, пока правительство не разработает схему ваучеров, сообщите нам об этом. Школьный офис будет открыт, и вы сможете связаться с ним, если у вас возникнут какие-либо вопросы или проблемы в течение этого периода.

 

Lithuanian:

Kaip vakar teigė Borisas Johnsonas, mokykla liks atvira vaikams, kurių tėvai yra pagrindiniai darbuotojai, ir kai kurioms kitoms vaikų grupėms. Šiuo metu sudarome šį sąrašą. Prašome užpildyti klausimyną, jei jums reikia vaiko, kad jis ateitų į mokyklą, kad jūs vis dar galėtumėte atlikti savo darbą.

Šiuo metu mokytojai rengia darbus kitoms 2 savaitėms. Tai bus internetinių mokymo vaizdo įrašų, internetinių nuorodų ir knygų, kurias rytoj paruošime vaikams parnešti į namus ar ką nors surinkti, derinys. Jums nereikės atspausdinti jokių išteklių. Didžioji dalis kūrinių bus pasiekiama per „Dojo“ klasę. Jei nesate Dojo klasėje, susisiekite su mokykla ir mes padėsime jums tai nustatyti.

Jei jūsų vaikas paprastai valgo nemokamą maitinimą mokykloje ir jums reikia tam tikros paramos, kol vyriausybė suorganizuos kvito schemą, praneškite mums. Mokyklos kabinetas liks atidarytas, kad galėtumėte susisiekti, jei per šį laikotarpį kiltų klausimų ar rūpesčių.

We have no new updates but still wanted to stay in touch with you all.

 

You can read yesterdays statement from the Prime Minister on Coronavirus here.

 

St Edmund’s Academy continues to remain open with breakfast club and after school clubs operating as usual.

 

The school will continue to remain open until we are directed otherwise by the Department for Education or the Government. In the meantime, we continue to follow instructions from the Government and would encourage you to do the same regarding handwashing, coughing and sneezing into elbows etc.

 

Again, you can still access the usual ways of home learning to help those who are self-isolating.

 

Just to confirm the Government are advising a period of self-isolation of 14 days for anyone with a fever or new persistent cough. You will need to use your own discretion on this matter unless dictated by medical professionals. School cannot advise on medical matters.  If you have told us that you are keeping your child off self-isolating, please do not return them to school before the end of this period, even if school is still open.

 

We will continue to monitor our staffing levels and endeavour to keep our academy open with sufficient staffing for the number of children we have. In the event of insufficient staff, there is a chance that we will need to close parts of or all of the academy.

 

We will keep you informed of any changes in line with Government advice as soon as they become available.

 

Please check back here for more information as and when we receive it.

Today, the Department for Education and Public Health England have issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19.

 

Current advice remains in place: no education or children’s social care setting should close in response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.

 

The Chief Medical Officer has advised that the impact of closing schools on both children’s education and on the workforce would be substantial, but the benefit to public health may not be. Decisions on future advice to education or children’s social care settings will be taken based on the latest and best scientific evidence, which at this stage suggests children are a lower risk group.

 

Previous guidance stands:

  • Children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend education as normal
  • If children become unwell at school with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they will be sent home
  • Cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces more often
  • Washing hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues
