Why do schools decide to close?
On rare occasions, schools will decide to close. This can be for a variety of reasons but they are usually to protect both students and staff. Your child’s learning doesn’t need to stop just because they are not able to attend school.
Planning for Remote/Blended Education
Within the guidance for Full Opening following the lockdown due to Covid-19 the DfE set out its expectations for schools to offer remote learning should a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown. The DfE expects schools to be able to offer this immediately to those who require it, and it should be to a high quality that aligns as closely as possible with in-school provision. Staff at Springfield have been busy creating a Home Learning Curriculum, for each year group, to ensure pupils can continue their learning at home should this be necessary.
What can I do with my child if their school is closed?
To keep your child busy and learning in the event that they are unable to attend school, try to complete the interactive lessons provided on the school website. These can be accessed by use of the appropriate tab on the right.
If your child is in one of our ERF classes or has an EHCP, then in addition to selecting the ERF tab you may also select a Year Group that you feel would be best suited for them.
