Keeping in Touch
The current situation is challenging for everyone, and we are doing everything we can to provide support to families at this difficult time. I have included information about some of this below, and the school website provides further information.
Free School Meals
We delivered 144 food vouchers last week to our families!
Co-op is funding these vouchers to really help our community. It’s nearly £3,000 per week of closure and they’re doing the same for other Co-op academies. It’s a very generous contribution to our school and community.
Children in Years 1 to 6 who would normally get a free school meal, get these £20 per-week vouchers each. That’s families who get Universal Credit or similar and would get a meal for free while at school. If you haven’t already, you can complete the free school meals form: https://www.bradford.gov.uk/benefits/applying-for-benefits/free-school-meals/
Got your voucher? Activate it here, if you don’t your voucher won’t be topped-up each week.
The serial number can be found on the back of your card.
We are committed to providing quality learning, even in these difficult circumstances; we know it’s not easy at times, at home, with children stuck indoors! We are doing our best to support you. If you use our homework feedback form, you can ask your child’s class teacher to give you a call or email.
We will be continuing to provide activities on our Learn at Home platform, even during the Easter Break; teachers are preparing this as we speak.
Can you access our online learning activities?
We’ve had to make lots of changes to carry on supporting our children with their learning. To help us find out how we can help and what will work, complete our survey to tell us what electronic devices you’ve got at home.
We’re still available
As all our children are able to stay safe at home, we’ve been able to close our classrooms. We are still available to support all our families over the phone and by email. If you’re a key worker or your child is vulnerable we can help, let us know you need a place. This week:
- The school office will be open between 9am and 3pm, should you need us.
- We’ll stay in touch regularly by Text, Twitter and on the school website. We may call you from time-to-time too, to check that all is well.
- The school phone will be answered between 08:30am and 10:00am every morning, and between 2:30pm and 3:30pm every afternoon.
- The email@example.com email address will be monitored in office hours.
- Should you be worried about a child, you can contact our Safeguarding Team on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use the school phone number.
If you’re key worker or the parent of a vulnerable child and you now need a place please call or email us to let us know:
You can also use this link if you need our family support team to contact you.
If you want to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to do so using the methods above. We are really grateful for the positive comments we have received from parents.
We also love to see children’s work on Twitter, we have seen some really nice examples on there. Make sure you mention us, @coopprinceville!
And remember: if you or your child feels ill and you want to know what to do next, please use NHS 111 online.
Please take care of yourselves and your family, and follow Government advice carefully (we’ll put this on our website as it is issued).
Thank you for your support, and thank you to all of those parents. and children who are making the most of the available learning resource.
