Latest update from Woodhouse Primary Academy
Updated 26.2.2021 15:00
**Woodhouse Primary Academy is closed to most children due to the national lockdown in place in the UK, but remains open for emergency care of critical workers and vulnerable children only, with remote learning in place for all children. You can view our remote learning plan here. Woodhouse will open to all children on Monday 8th March 2021.**
**You can view our most recent risk assessment here. This will be updated for the full opening of our school.**
*Until the return to school on Monday 8th March, we will continue to use the National FSM Voucher scheme, which will be delivered for children in Reception to Year 6 by EdenRed. These vouchers will arrive by email towards the end of each week. Please remember that you will only receive a voucher for time not spent in school. Please note, this support does not apply to the Universal Infant Free School Meals which all children in Reception and KS1 receive when in school. Nor does it currently apply to Nursery children.*
*If your child is showing symptoms of Coronavirus, they must not attend our school for any reason. Do not take any unnecessary risks regarding this, but contact school for advice. For further details visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/*
We are delighted that Woodhouse Primary Academy will re-open safely from Monday 8th March as we move though the coronavirus (COVD19) crisis. To ensure everyone is safe in school, we have evolved our detailed plans and new ways of working to support the safe and successful full opening of our school in March 2021 and beyond. We completed a range of detailed and regularly updated risk assessments which can be viewed by all, alongside the many letters to parents explaining the measures we take to keep everyone safe, on our Wider Opening page here. As always, these plans are affected by any changes in the local or national situation and will be updated accordingly.
From Monday 8th March 2021, Woodhouse Primary Academy is open to all children in all year groups. After that date, all children should attend school each day. Our school is organised with a range of protective measures in place to protect children, families and adults in our school. If you have any concerns, please discuss these with school.
If your child is not able to attend school due to isolation, then they are expected to continue their learning at home. Our committed teaching staff provide a full range of learning opportunities and lessons for children at home, as described by our remote learning plan here. There is a wide bank of daily learning on our Goggle Classrooms or on our Home Learning website, where children can access the high standard of education we expect at Woodhouse each day. If you have any issues accessing this work, please contact by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office. For all children, we will continue to work digitally using Google classroom as our school learning platform when school has reopened. All communication comes out by email and is also placed on the school website. We have given out a large number of devices to access learning and we do have a limited supply of Vodaphone data sim cards and BT broadband hotspot passwords, which can be used to enable children to access learning online. Contact school if you need support with accessing remote education.
If for any reason you need any additional support of any sort (for example food parcels) then please do contact school and we will do all we can to help. We can and will support any family in need - you just need to let us know. We have access to support in school, help in the local community and through Birmingham City Council agencies. Please rest assured that any requests will be handled sensitively and discretely - you know that we will look after you and your family without judgement. If you don't let us know - we cannot help.
If any personal details, such as mobile phone numbers, email addresses or home addresses change, please be sure to communicate this to school as soon as possible by contacting the office or emailing email@example.com. You can also do this through our MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) app, further details of which can be found here. As we will regularly need to contact you, it is especially important that you keep your details up-to-date so you hear from us regularly.
Thank you for your continued support of our school. Please take care - keep yourselves and your families safe.
