Home Learning Expectations

When pupils are not in school due to them isolating, work will be posted to them on Show My Homework and will follow their school timetable for that day. It is expected that if pupils are fit and well they will complete this work and post it back to their teacher on Show My Homework. This work will appear as classwork (red) rather than homework (green).

The tasks that being set are designed to match the work pupils in school are doing. As a result, we strongly recommend that pupils complete it on the day it is set. This way they will keep up to date and get most benefit out of the activities.

 

Letter from The Headteacher

15 September 2020 Update

Dear Parents

Following yesterday’s announcement that a Year 9 pupil had tested positive for COVID-19, a number of our pupils are working from home until Monday 21 September 2020. As from Wednesday, lessons will be recorded and posted via Show My Homework for these pupils and will be available as per their normal timetable.

Lesson material is posted below.

Thank you for your patience. Best wishes to you and your family.

Yours sincerely

Dear Parent

As we have come to the end of our first full week in school, I am writing to express my gratitude for your ongoing support and to praise our wonderful youngsters for the way that they have adjusted to the new school day. Their attitude has been exemplary and we feel safe in our new way of working together. You will be aware that some local schools have had positive coronavirus test results for pupils or staff and this has led to some pupils being sent home from school. Fortunately, this has not been the case at Blessed Trinity, however we would not be surprised should there be cases in the future.

 

Staff have been working incredibly hard this week on our system for sending work out to pupils who are isolating at home. There are 3 scenarios in which this may happen which are outlined below.
We plan to have our work response system for each Scenario ready by Monday 21 September 2020.
If your child needs to isolate before this date, we shall arrange for work to be uploaded onto Show my Homework as previously.

Scenario 1: Individual pupils are isolating at home

When you take your child for a coronavirus-test it is really important to keep in contact with school.
As soon as you can let us know either the results of your test, or the length of time you have been told to wait for test results, we will be in contact to organise the work for your child. The work you can expect whilst in isolation will be a programme of lessons for each subject which we shall email to you. This programme will include hyperlinks to electronic resources and video clips of lessons, as well as other paper based activities.

To ensure that your child receives the work and is able to access it please ensure that:
- The email contact we have for you on our system is correct
- You let us know if your child does not have access to a suitable electronic device on which to view the content of the lessons

Scenario 2: The school informs you that a Year Group Bubble is required to work from Home.

In this event we will contact you to explain how pupils in the
affected year group can access a programme of works, which will include
streaming of live lessons.

Scenario 3: The school informs you that there will be a full Lockdown.

In this event we will contact you to explain how all pupils can access a
programme of works, which will include streaming of live lessons.

As we have had to plan for several different scenarios, we do appreciate your patience and
understanding if we have some initial teething problems.
We welcome your feedback at all times and know that, by working in partnership with you, we will
be able to support our young people in achieving their potential this academic year.

Please send any feedback to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Pupil Equipment

Just a reminder that we do require all pupils to bring their own equipment to lessons. Your child
will need

  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Ruler
  • Eraser
  • Scientific Calculator
  • Highlighters

The Scientific Calculator we recommend is the Casio FX83GTX, or the Casio FX85GTX.

Thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have anyThank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have anyconcerns.

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (CORONAVIRUS-19) are recent onset of any of the following:
A new continuous cough
A high temperature (fever)
A loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
Any one of the above symptoms gives reason for high level of suspicion for CORONAVIRUS-19.
A well person or child: feels 100% well, seems themselves and not displaying any changes in behaviour or theirdaily routines.
An unwell person or child could be a possible case of CORONAVIRUS-19.
 
A combination of symptoms below gives reason for high level of suspicion for CORONAVIRUS-19.
Vomiting/nausea/off their food, diarrhoea, sleeping more than usual, complaining of not feelingthemselves, listless/restless/agitated, shortness of breath, feeling cold, headache, severe body aches, sorethroat/congested or runny nose - anything that is not feeling themselves.
For fevers, the NHS advice is to look for a high temperature – ‘this means you feel hot to touch on yourchest or back; you do not need to measure your temperature’.
