At St Francis, we aim to provide parents/carers with a variety of engaging and easily accessible activities to motivate their child/young person at home. We try, where possible, to reflect the varied curriculum offer we deliver in school. Please see our home learning statement below how we plan to achieve this.
St Francis School believe we should celebrate ALL achievements. We are encouraging students and parents to take photos of any super examples of work at home. This does not need to be academic.
All of these accomplishments should be equally acknowledged and celebrated.
If you would like to share your achievements here, please send to your Teacher on Seesaw with a note giving permission for it to be shared online.
We will use Parentmail to communicate and share important information and changes with you in regards to this lockdown and how and when we will start to reopen again for all pupils. You can download the Parentmail app to your phone and get instant notifications as and when we send them out.
We will use Seesaw to upload resources and activities to provide students with learning opportunities. We understand that for some of our students they have very clear distinctions between home and school, therefore none of the remote learning is mandatory but is available for parents to encourage students to access if they can.
