Winter Contingency Planning- Please Respond

As we head into the winter we will be putting our usual contingency plans in place, this session we have an additional consideration with the continued increase in cases of COVID-19.

As Test and Protect Scotland is in touch with more people, we expect to see an increase in the numbers of pupils being asked to self isolate at home. To help us in planning for how best to support the learning of any pupil not in school, we have created a short survey that can be found below.

During the period of home learning from March to June we used MS Teams to support this and it worked very well for us. It would be our preference to continue with this platform as almost all pupils in P2-7 are already familiar with it and teachers have been using it with pupils to deliver homework.

However we understand that, for a variety of reasons, not everyone can access this platform, therefor the survey results will allow us to make the best plans for individuals should they need to access their learning from home.

The more information we have the easier it is for us to provide support for any access issues.

Please note home learning will only be provided for those who are self isolating without symptoms. As is normal practise, pupils who are off ill will not be expected to work at home and will be supported to catch up on their learning when they are fit to do so.

Thank you for your continued support.
