QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Please see below the answer to questions that parents have asked via the survey or directly and that have not been answered already in the documents published on this page:
"What provision will the school have in place in case a local or national lockdown is initiated again?"
Should there be a spike in cases either nationally or locally in Milton Keynes causing the school to close again, we will be offering work in hard copies to be collected from and delivered back to school. Feedback will be given and children will be given tasks and challenges appropriate to their level of understanding. There will be the opportunity also to access work via Microsoft Teams (we will be setting up and giving training on this for all teaching staff when the school reopens) and some video calls and assemblies will be shared with children subject to suitable Safeguarding measures being in place for the use of such media.
RETURNING to SCHOOL Guidance:
The Educational Psychology and Inclusion and Intervention Team have created guidance to support children and young people who are returning to school following the COVID-19 pandemic:
During the lockdown period, the Inclusion and Intervention team have been working with us to identify the provision in place for pupils with an EHCP. This also includes carrying out a risk assessment. Parents can access this information here.
