The school is now closed until further Government announcement, apart from those who fit within Government specification and have communicated this with the school.
For further information about how our school and the Trust are taking necessary precautions since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, please visit the ‘Schools Update – Coronavirus (COVID-19)’ page on our Trust’s website.
We will also keep you informed through our usual communication channels.
Earlier today you received a letter, sharing the Government’s guidance for schools and the plans Gordon Children’s Academy and the Trust have put in place for your child (were relevant). Please refer to MyEd for the letter.
We understand it is a very challenging climate currently, especially for you as parents . We would like to continue to support you and the children in any way we can. At a time like this it’s important to keep to routines, keeping to a typical school day timetable would be very useful to fill the time and to ensure the children continue with their learning.
The teachers have been working very hard to ensure no learning time is missed and the children continue to keep up with their learning. Please follow this link https://www.gordonchildrensacademy.org.uk/our-school/latest-news/ to access home learning. If you do not have access to a computer or the internet, you can pick up a paper copy of the home learning for your child, on Monday the 23rd March at the school office from 9am onwards. Every Monday we will upload new home learning for the week onto our school website.
The home learning is very much retrieval based at the moment so the children will be able to complete their learning with minimum support. We would expect the children to complete a reasonable amount of work for each session. There is a timetable which would guide you, on when and how long each session should be. Keep reading and learning those number facts and timetables on a daily basis. Enjoy learning together!
On behalf at everyone at Gordon I wish you and your loved ones well! Keep safe!
Have a good weekend!
Acting Head of school
