Headteacher’s Blog

Thank you for bearing with us over the last few days and putting up with frequent late night emails and texts. I will try and make this the last one for a while!

There have been lots of calls and emails asking about remote learning and school lunches. We will endeavour to respond to all individual requests that are not addressed below.

Bowmansgreen’s remote learning is published weekly on the school website, although additional resources may be added throughout the week to supplement some units of work or activities. It currently includes lesson and unit plans and weekly videos delivered by class teachers. Pupils also have individual log-ins for Times Tables Rockstars and Numbots (please let the office know if your child has forgotten their log-in) and workbooks to support reading comprehension and spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) for KS2. Half-termly Home Learning grids are also published on the school website – new grids will be available this week.

Hard copies of some remote learning resources are available – please contact the school office for more information.  We are currently reviewing our remote learning provision, in light of the new national Lockdown and we will update parents with any changes.

We are awaiting updated information and guidance from the Department of Education about the provision of free school meals for eligible children who are learning remotely. Hertfordshire Catering Ltd will provide food parcels for eligible families in the interim, and hot meals for pupils attending school.

If you are a critical key worker, please let us know if you are intending to send your child into school. It is essential that we have this information before your child returns, to help us effectively prepare and organise resources.

Please be reminded that all parents, carers and visitors are asked to wear a face covering whilst on site. We appreciate your support in helping to protect our school community.

We really appreciate the very kind messages that families have been sending in, expressing their support and appreciation during this very difficult and unsettling time. Thank you.
