Update 20.3.20

The school will be open next week for children of Critical Workers only, vulnerable children and children with an EHC Plan.

Work packs are being given to the children today (Friday) which should last 2-3 weeks. After that we will attempt to put work on each child’s class page in the Children‘s Zone.

We know that these are very worrying times and the closure is extremely worrying for all children’s education, right across England. We don’t know when we will reopen again, but hope it’s not too long.

In the meantime the school will be operating a skeleton staff for children of Critical Workers only next week.

Please be safe and do the right thing for the borough. Avoid social gatherings and if you or any member of your family develop a persistent cough or temperature you must go to the NHS website and the whole family must self isolate for 14 days. If we all act together, things will get back to normal quickly. But only if we all pull together.

For the children and families we won’t see over the coming weeks and potentially months, our thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Be safe, remember the power of prayer and we’ll see you all very soon I’m sure.

Mr D Houson and the staff of ST Saviour’s RC Primary

Coronavirus update for parents 19.03.2020

Coronavirus update for parents 19.03.2020

Dear All, 

Most of you will now know that yesterday, the government has ordered schools in the UK to close on Friday afternoon until further notice. 

I realise this is distressing news for the entire school community and will leave many anxious, but I want to reassure everyone that we have spent a great deal of time preparing for this announcement. I feel very confident we have everything in place to ensure that we continue to support you and your children in the coming weeks and months. 

This summer’s GCSE, A Level and other public exams will not go ahead. Our students have worked so hard preparing for their exams and the uncertainty about what arrangements the government will put in place will no doubt cause a great deal of anxiety. The government says it will work schools to ensure students get the qualifications that they need. As more details are released we will be doing everything we can to help students understand what it means for them.

Over today and tomorrow we will plan for how we can offer a service to look after the children of key workers and other children that the government wants us to keep in school. At this point we cannot give you any more details, but we will let you know what our plans are as soon as possible.

All staff have worked tirelessly this week to ensure we have ‘home learning’ arrangements in place.  See our enclosed letter for details of home learning packs / educational websites.  We will work hard to make sure this is a seamless transition for the children. We will be talking to the children about what will happen next to help them to make sense of it all, keep them calm and reassure them.

I am sure that you will join me in thanking all our fantastic staff for working so hard at this difficult time. Some cannot be in school at the moment but are working hard at home.

I want to thank you all for working with us and your continued support for the school at this time. Updates will be listed on the school website.

Social Media Advice

Many of our children are using Social Media we have no idea about. Many of the apps are harmless ways of keeping in contact.

However, is your child safe? Do you know who they are chatting to?

Please look at these excellent fact sheets for the most popular social media sights – Social Media Advice here

Staying Safe over the Summer

The summer holidays can be a dangerous time for children online.  With fewer structured activities, and potentially significantly more unsupervised time, children can be at a greater risk from the dangers which run throughout the year.

UK Safer Internet Centre have released some guidance in the past, which I feel is very useful to parents/carers.  If you have a way of sharing a link with your communities, please do share the whole page, which also gives access to additional links.  For a paper copy of the information, please click the link below.

Staying safe online this summer – website link (this is last year’s advice but they normally update in July which may be too late to get an update to you from myself, however, you could simply just share the website itself which is: www.saferinternet.org.uk  

There is really useful advice enclosed about time online, sharing holiday images and other information that may prove useful. 

St Saviour’s Book Day Bake Off!
