#ourclockhousefamily Stay safe everyone! We look forward to seeing Year 1 to Year 6 back at school on Thursday 2nd September. Happy Holiday!

Weekly reminders for week beginning 11th January 2021

Good morning Clockhouse
 
A huge well done to you all last week and we hope you have been able to have a rest over the weekend so that you are ready to go again on Monday. You have all amazed us with you commitment and support and again thank you for your kind messages, support and respect during this hard time. It is hard for us all but is made so much easier by you working with us! We hope you all enjoyed Achievement Assembly on Friday and will be looking for are next Home Learning Heroes and Hawaii Heroes come Monday. It really is a tough choice, we have so many Heroes at Clockhouse!
 
I hope you are all keeping well and staying indoors for the good of everyone! We do continue to ask that you do not put undue pressure on yourselves or the children at this difficult time. Please remember that whilst learning is important to keep some routine going and having fun is also equally important.
 
As we get more used to this new regime, I wanted to keep you up to date with what it happening:
  • Remote Learning continues this week for the majority of children. As you can probably see from last week, unlike the last lockdown, this time there are very clear expectations on school that learning must continue and progress. We obviously cannot do this without your support and will work with you to do all that we can. Please do let us know if you need support.
  • Team Hawaii will be back in action on Monday (separate information has been sent to you about the week ahead).
  • There will be a small number of school staff in school every day.
  • The best way to contact teachers / school staff is messaging via Class Dojo, they will be online throughout the day and will get back to you as soon as they can. Class Teachers will be at home teaching remotely via Zoom at the times already given out. Links to the Zoom sessions will be sent by individual teachers. If you are having any difficulties getting on to this or Google Classroom do let us know and we will assist you.
  • The school phones will only be manned between 7.45am and 3.45pm. Please do not hesitant to call, even if it is only for a chat. If we cannot talk at that moment, someone will get back to you as soon as they can. Please only use option 3 and 5, as other lines will not be manned due to the reduced work force each day. Please call again if you do not get answered immediately.
  • We will be asking for confirmation from those critical workers who may need child care for next week. Please do keep in mind that the government are very clear that ‘you should only send your child to school if you have to, because your work is critical to the COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should’. This not only helps keep children safe but also the staff.
Should you need to come onto school site, please be aware that all the rules and expectations that were in place prior to the holiday remain. Please do ensure that you keep your physical distance and that you wear masks when on school site unless you are exempt. If your children are in Hawaii, please do ensure that they are not sent into school if they themselves have symptoms of Covid or if a member of the household does. The whole household MUST isolate until tests results are received. Should you require further information, please follow the link below:

If you do not have a child in school, please do let us know if your child is unwell or a member of the household, we do still care about you all obviously and are all still part of the same community. 
 
Food Parcels for those eligible
Should your child be eligible for Free School Meals (this is not Universal Free School Meals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) and you would like a weekly food parcel, please email office@clockhouse.havering.sch.uk Please give your child's name, class and the best number to contact you on. We ask that as far as possible you collect these from school but should you need them delivered we can make arrangements. This week these should be ready on Wednesday but we will keep you updated via Dojo. If you are not sure if your child is eligible and wish to check please also email. If you received food last week or have already ordered your bag, you do not need to email.
 
Please contact the school if you have any questions.
 
I know the staff are looking forward to seeing you virtually or face to face again this week which gives us all a little bit of normality. 
 
Whilst we do still anticipate disruption moving forward and do not know how long the current arrangements will remain, we will of course do all we can to support you and thank you for your support without which we cannot do what we are doing.
 
Stay safe team Clockhouse!
