Message from Mrs Collins
Dear Parents and Carers
I hope you and your family are keeping safe and well.
As we begin another week of remote education, I would like to say a huge thank you for everything you are doing to support your child at home with their learning. We have been delighted with the engagement and support of our families and we have been very impressed with the quality of children’s work which has been shared with us. We understand that home learning can be really challenging at times especially when juggling work and other commitments but we think you are doing a wonderful job!
I would also like to say thank you for the very positive feedback on our home learning provision. Our staffing is stretched at the moment but we are doing everything we can to maintain our home learning provision whilst remaining open to critical worker and vulnerable children. Your feedback and support are very much appreciated by the teachers and has given our staff a real boost!
We have recently updated our Remote Education Plan with some further information for parents and carers. This can be found on our website on pages 4-6 of the plan. https://www.didsburyroad.stockport.sch.uk/home-learning-1/
We have also updated our SEND page with further support and resources for our pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. https://www.didsburyroad.stockport.sch.uk/send/ We hope you find these resources helpful.
Today marks the start of Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme this year is about expressing yourself and finding creative ways in which children can share their thoughts, feelings and ideas. Stockport Behaviour Support Service and Primary Jigsaw have created a booklet which includes some great tips for supporting and managing children’s well-being during the pandemic. Stockport SHAPES Team have also produced some active ideas and a family challenge to support well-being at this time. These can be found on the well-being page of our website. https://www.didsburyroad.stockport.sch.uk/well-being/
It is equally important at this time to think about parental well-being and mental health. We understand that everyone is managing their own individual circumstances and we do not want home learning to cause too much additional pressure. Please do the best you can to support your child but please be kind to yourself. If you need any help or support please talk to us. Some tips and advice can be found by following the links below.
Thank you again for everything that you are doing to support with home learning.
