Home Learning Guidance for Parents & Carers
Our aim is for Home-learning at Hedgewood to remain as hands-on as possible, so we can continue to meet the individual needs of our learners and ensure they still feel connected to the Hedgewood School community.
In the case of a ’Class Bubble’ closure, we are committed to continuing to support your child’s wellbeing and learning. We aim do this by using a variety of approaches including the use of SeeSaw Classroom app, Zoom, and where appropriate set work using our online learning programmes such as Lexia , Maths Seeds and Reading Eggs and Hedgewood YouTube channel. Physical learning packs will include learning resources related to your child’s Personal Curriculum Plan (PCP) . These packs will be made available for collection or delivery.
In the case of your child having to self- isolate due to someone in the household awaiting test results you will have the option to have your child’s home learning pack delivered, which includes a variety of physical learning activities and links to learning online. Your class teacher will also contact you and talk through the additional home learning opportunities which are accessible via the seesaw classroom app, Lexia, Hedgewood YouTube channel , Maths Seeds and Reading Eggs. There are additional home learning resources that can be found on the school website. Your class teacher will also arrange a daily 20 min zoom session with your child if appropriate.
In the case of your child being ill with Covid –19 symptoms, the class teacher will continue to do their check in via SeeSaw or by phone call. When your child is recovered, and after 10 days of them first displaying symptoms, they will return to school.
If during the time of self Isolation , you feel your child is well enough to access some home -learning. We can deliver a home learning pack or set activities via the seesaw classroom app or the other additional home learning opportunities which are accessible and relevant to your child’s PCP.
If you require any technical support , advice or need hardware resources for your child to access the home learning please contact you class teacher via Seesaw or by phone.
