REMOTE LEARNING - PLEASE READ BELOW

We would like to share with you some key information about remote learning provisions currently available for children not in school and how this provision will be developed over the coming weeks.

Currently, remote learning information and materials are available via our school website on the home learning page. The page gives an overview of our provision and links to good quality learning websites, as well as access to online lessons via the Oak National Academy link.

To access resources from your child's class teacher, you need to click on the blue REMOTE LEARNING link at the very top of the home learning page (under the green banner). Organised by year groups, you can access the material covered in class for each week. Resources may include a combination of video, powerpoints, set worksheets and activities to complete.

It is the Department of Education expectation that primary schools provide up to 3 hours of remote learning for children in KS1 and 4 hours for those in KS2 to access daily. This can be through combinations of school designed resources, access to other educational resources and through relevant educational websites/media. The combination of worksheets, set activities (such as reading a book, writing or doing a practical task) in addition to those requiring a device such as mobile phone, tablet or laptop means that families with more than one child can stagger use of devices more easily.

As there is a national lockdown with a "stay at home" message, we want to fulfil our responsibilities by reducing the number of people coming into school. Therefore, instead of issuing worksheet packs, we are asking that you view worksheets online if you are unable to print them at home and for your child to write the answers in their book or on paper. The school may only consider packs being made available for collection if your family is facing extreme circumstances. If you believe this to be the case, please contact the school office by email to explain the reason for your request to be considered.

The leadership team is currently developing plans to implement remote learning through Google Classrooms. This platform enables teachers to upload work to the children in their class who are learning from home, giving them access to the learning materials covered in school and providing the opportunity for feedback on work completed. Please note, this will not be "live streaming" lessons. I am aware that there are those who would advocate 'lessons delivered live in shared class online spaces', however due to safeguarding and access issues, we do not advocate that approach in our primary school at this time. It is expected that we will move to this new platform in the next few weeks but we are dependent on Google to complete the set up. More information will follow in due course. In the meantime, we hope you continue to learn and be safe whether you are with us in person or in our thoughts.

Mr Brooks

Welcome to Barry Primary School

Mr Will Brooks, Headteacher

It is my privilege as Headteacher to extend a warm welcome to the Barry Primary website and thank you for visiting. Our school not only strives for high academic standards for children, but we also have the ambition for everyone that is part of our school to achieve their fullest potential in a far broader sense, celebrating creativity, individuality, integrity and diversity.

We are proud of having a long history of putting children at the heart of everything we do and of the close-knit, supportive “family-feel” that visitors to our school always comment on; it is this CARE that forms an integral part of our school vision and values.

Our dedicated staff team, our wonderful children and the excellent relationships that exist between all members of the school community have helped us to achieve our Good status. This website aims to celebrate the broad range of opportunities and achievements at our school, as well as further contributing to the partnership that exists within our lovely learning community.

We hope that you enjoy the site and are as proud of our children’s achievements as we are.

    End of Term
    Dear Parent / Carer School will close as normal on Friday 18th December. Our Training days are already set for Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th January 2021. Schools have been asked to operate a 'Track and Trace' system for the first two days of the Christmas break. If your child develops symptoms or tests positive for Coronavirus on Saturday 19th or Sunday 20th December we are asking you to inform us by email at the following address cov19@barryprimary.org. After this point you will need to contact NHS Track and Trace. This is so we can inform possible contacts that they need to self isolate. Thank you for your continued support.

    SAFETY ON SCHOOL GROUNDS
    Dear Parents / Carers, Please can I remind you that if you enter through the top playground gate, you should exit through the car park gate, even if this is less convenient. In my observations this week, there are still many parents trying to exit out of the top gate going against the one-way flow put in place to enable us to stay open. What is disappointing is that some parents wait until they believe no member of staff is watching, sneaking through in the same way we might expect of children. As adults, you understand why we have to put these measures in place - so please follow the one way system to help keep our pupils, staff and other parents safe. If you are entering our premises, we would appreciate parents who are not exempt to wear face coverings to reduce the risk of transmitting any infection at the busiest times of our school day. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this really important safety matter. Mr Brooks

    Additional Measures during National Lockdown
    Dear Parents / Carers, Thank you to many families supporting our additional safety measures whilst we are in a national lockdown. We really appreciate those who are able to wear a face covering doing so. Please can I remind you not to allow your child on the large playground equipment before or after school - if you are waiting on the playground to collect a child from another year group, you need to keep your children with you as we are not permitted to mix year group bubbles outside of individual households. Once you have your children, please exit promptly so that we do not have larger groups than absolutely necessary, thank you. Stay safe and well. Will Brooks

    National Lockdown
    Dear Parents / Carers As you will be aware, there will be a national lockdown that comes into force on Thursday 5th November: Barry Primary will remain open to ALL pupils. At this moment in time, the Department of Education has not yet released the updated guidance to schools. Until official guidance is released, I would like to ask all parents / carers to support us by doing the following: Whilst lockdown is in place, please wear a face covering during drop off and collection. Only one adult per family to come to the school for drop off / collection. Ensure that you use the correct gates and the correct times for your child, following our one way systems. Keep 2 metres distance where possible Please do not come to the school office in person during drop off / collection times. As our families are so good at getting the children into school promptly, our gates will now shut at 9am. If you arrive after this time, please take you child to the main office. Our staff will now also have the option to wear face coverings on the playground during drop off / collection times only. Thank you for helping keep our school safe. Will Brooks
