Central Foundation Girls' School Advice to Families on Covid 19 (Coronavirus)
I write with regard to our contingency plan to move learning online should the government’s Coronavirus action plan change within the next few weeks. This is when social distancing measures may be put in place that may include school closure. You can read the plan via this link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-action-plan
As a Show My Homework School, we will be using this platform to upload work for your daughter. We therefore need to ensure that you can access and login to Show My Homework. If you have not already done so, please check that you have your login details. If you do not have these, please notify us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also access SMHW without a login by going to our school website (please see the help sheet as attached).
We are surveying students to find out if they will have any difficulty accessing an internet connection away from school. Accessing activities and resources will be possible over a smartphone or tablet, as well as laptop or desktop computer. This does not have to be at home, it could be at a friend or relative’s house. If you know this will be difficult, please let us know; we will provide different activities for students who cannot access the internet
Should the need arise, we will be asking students to follow their usual timetable from home, with a full day’s learning activities accessible from Show My Homework each morning. Following the usual school timetable provides a structure to the day, and as much continuity as is possible.
This message and the steps we have taken are part of our contingency planning, and do not mean that school closure is more imminent or likely. It is a plan we are creating to ensure learning can continue online as smoothly as possible should the need arise. In the meantime, we continue to run school as normal with the full range of opportunities you have come to expect from Central Foundation.
As with the Government advice please continue to ensure that your daughter washes her hands with soap as often as possible for at least 20 seconds.
