School Closure

The school is currently closed for the majority of students due to the national Covid-19 response.

What is Coronavirus?

A corona-virus is a type of virus. As a group, corona-viruses are common across the world.

Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

 

Letter to Parents 30 March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Update at the end of first week of Home Learning

Well, last week was a different kind of week, wasn’t it? I hope that you are all well and have managed to enjoy some of this glorious weather.  Remember to rest during this period of time and administer some self-care. I’m writing to thank you for your support during these challenging times, particularly for how quickly you have adapted to our new ways of working from home. Do not doubt that whatever you are doing with your child adds value and we fully appreciated how tricky it is to wrestle with your own work commitments and family responsibilities. As we move into our second week of closure for the vast majority of students, this is an opportune time to share some updates with you.

 

Key worker children

Ivanhoe College has in place emergency supervised childcare provision for a small number of students whose parents are mainly NHS workers who have no other form of childcare. I would like to thank all of you who are key workers who have found other ways of looking after your children.  It is important that in school and at home we can ensure social distancing is in place at all times, which would have been challenging with large numbers in school.  At Ivanhoe we will remain open to provide provision for key workers over the Easter Break.  Our fabulous Ivanhoe staff have committed to a volunteer programme to support key workers and protect their children over this period.  However, the welfare and safety of my staff are also paramount and I would again implore parents to look carefully at what other arrangements they could make given that we have no Personal Protection Equipment available to staff in schools. Your support is greatly appreciated.

 

Free School Meal students:

 We have explored a number of ways to offer support. The plans we initially implemented are likely to change due to changing directives from the government regarding movement and social distancing. The government is set to launch a national voucher scheme for FSM families next week, the details of which are still to be published.

 

As an interim measure for our FSM families, we have contacted parents via MyEd to offer a range of vouchers. We can currently offer Sainsburys and Tescos vouchers (a mix of physical and e-vouchers) and hope to add Co-op vouchers in the near future. The reason for choosing these is that there is a mix of these shops relatively close to most people. This week's vouchers (which also covers the Easter break) are in the process of being sent out today/tomorrow.

 

 As you can appreciate supermarkets are under immense pressure from schools to issue vouchers and delivery of these is taking longer than originally thought but please be assured that we will get these vouchers to you as quickly as we can. There is a designated email address fsm@ivanhoe.co.uk for support.

 

Home learning Moving Forward:

Our teaching staff have been delighted with how well students have been engaged with completing work from home so well done to all!  Learning entirely at distance is new to all of us. Home learning cannot replace being at school, though we are trying to guide students towards useful sources to support them. This will be a real test of their resilience and self-managements skills.

 

In response to your feedback, you will see a more clearly structured Home Learning section on Moodle so hopefully your child can see their subject areas more easily.  We will also be labelling new work with the date so that students can see what is new.  We have arranged all instructions to be in PDF format so that they can be read on phones and other handheld devices. Not all the work set relies on a computer but instructions for the weeks’ work are there.

 

Subject Areas will set work on Moodle roughly proportionate to what your child would experience in a week in school.  For example, Maths, English and Design at 3 lessons per week will be setting more than Computing at just 1 lesson per week.  However, we are aware that circumstances are different for every student and that these are not ‘normal’ times! It may be that your child could try working in 30-minute slots rather than in hour slots with short breaks in between.

 

The current Home Learning resources we have provided should last until Friday 3rd April. New resources will appear on Monday 20th April.   We expect you and your child to take an Easter Break as you would normally. Please do not feel under pressure.

 

If possible, try to establish a routine. This will be more difficult if you have several children all trying to get on to one computer or have your own work to complete but might help students to fit in more productive slots when they are able.  Make sure that you have a cut-off point each day. It may be necessary to incentivise the work with your child as we would in school e.g stickers, rewards points, time earned on games/social media.  One parent managed to get her child to do a double reading session through clever negotiation involving Fortnite and TV privileges! Be wary of your child telling you they have ‘done everything on Moodle’! Doing things once does not lead to mastering new learning. Ask your child about dual coding, retrieval practise and using concrete examples to improve long term memory.

 

We suggest that your child follows the structure of their weekly school timetable in order to organise their time on schoolwork. For example, tomorrow might look like:

Period 1

(9 – 10 am)

Maths – Complete the work set on Moodle and My Maths and if time left, practice times tables.

Period 2

(10 – 11am)

Physical Education – get some fresh air, play in the garden, any physical activity or exercise routine on Youtube, exercise DVDs or yoga, for example Joe Wicks does a live PE lesson every morning.

Take a break

 

 

Period 3

(11.20 – 12.20)

English – 20 minutes reading, then 20 mins on Literacy Planet, then complete some booklet work (Y7 Beowulf, Y8 The Odyssey, Y9 Rhetoric), self-testing at the end using the knowledge organiser.

Period 4

(12.20 – 1.20)

Art – Project work and creative work. 

Take a lunch break

Period 5

(2.05 – 3.05) 

Lifeskills – eg. watch a news programme and discuss with your family.

 

This is just an example and should be adopted flexibly. Please don’t stress about completing all the work set on Moodle. We are all doing the best we can under these circumstances! Please be assured that Age Expectations for every year group across the nation will be adjusted in light of these unprecedented times.

 

Feedback on Work Completed

 

Most of the work we have set for Home Learning provides immediate feedback e.g Literacy Planet and My Maths. In fact, both of these programmes allow for students to retry the work until they get 100%. The well-known phrase “Practice Makes Perfect” could be applied here. However, in school we prefer the amended phrase “Perfect Practice Makes Perfect” which warns us to ensure errors are corrected before re-visiting.

 

Feedback will also be provided by teachers uploading ‘answers’ on a specified date, allowing students to self-assess or parents/siblings to peer-assess. This type of feedback to students should act as further motivation to move onto the next activity. After Easter, many subject areas will be uploading Moodle Quizzes for students to self-test as well. With many of our teaching staff self-isolating, unwell, home schooling their own children, and caring for vulnerable relatives, I am not placing any expectations on my staff to provide individualised, written feedback or traditional ‘marking’ at this stage.

 

Safeguarding Concerns during School Closure

 

We seek to do everything we reasonably can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students. I am sure you will appreciate that there are limits to this during these unprecedented times.

 

We would therefore recommend that you:

 

  • Monitor closely your child’s activity on social media. Most of the problems we have to deal with at the start of each term relate to antisocial behaviour that has taken place online while not at school. This may be exacerbated during this time of prolonged closure. And follow this link for further guidance on how to support your child.  

 

http://www.ivanhoe.co.uk/protecting-your-child-online

 

  • If your child is being seriously abused online, contact the police. 

 

  • Let us know if there have been any issues that we need to be aware of as soon as possible so we can respond promptly and appropriately when school reopens. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to respond to emails out of school hours. However, we will be monitoring the office@ivanhoe.co.uk during this period of school closure.

 

  • Contact Social Services if you feel they should be aware of an issue. You can call the Social Services Central Duty Team on 0116 305 0005 or make an online referral via the following link:

 

https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/leisure-and-community/community-safety/reportabuse-or-neglect-of-a-child

 

  • Contact the police straight away if you believe a child is in immediate danger.

 

And finally, do regularly look at our website for further updates during these ever-changing times. We plan to keep you all up to date (but hopefully not overwhelmed) with a weekly email. Our community has rallied brilliantly so far - thank you for all your support and kind words.  I wish you and your family well until our next update.

Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.

Kind regards

Alison Allford

Head of School

 

Letter to Parents 20 March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers 

Closure due to national Covid-19 response 

It is an unprecedented time for all of us and this is a difficult letter for us to write to you. We appreciate the support of parents in the changes we are being told to make to school provision. As you are aware the school will close for most students this afternoon and we do not know how long this will be for. 

We have provided home learning resources which you have already had information about and we will aim to maintain regular contact with you during this period of closure. Please understand that we cannot guarantee to collect or mark work at this stage as we do not know what our staffing levels will be, however much of the work is marked electronically or can be self-marked by students.  

We will be updating the learning resources continuously so that there is plenty of work available for children learning at home, so please encourage your child to keep logging on and doing their best. As parents and carers, you may of course have lots of ideas about how to add to and enrich this provision and we encourage you to do this, and other family members may be able to get involved too. 

Please keep an eye on additional learning resources that will be coming up from the BBC and other providers which should further enhance the home learning resources and there is a lot of information and advice on our website and across the media. 

Included with this letter is the guidance from the government about who will be able to come to school from Monday 23rd March onwards. 

We recognise that this situation will be hard for all our students and we remind you about the range of resources to support wellbeing and positive mental health. We will continue to add resources to our website during this time so please check it regularly. 

We are contacting parents of students who normally have free school meals and are arranging to provide either meals or supermarket vouchers. If we have missed anyone please get in touch. 

You will have many more questions as we go through the next few weeks and we will be planning for things like transition for Year 9 and Year 6, and preparing for the eventual return to normal school provision. We will keep in touch with you about these things when we have any information. 

For now, we send all our very best wishes to you and your families as we all follow new government guidance and make changes to our normal routines and practices. 

Take care everyone and we will be in touch soon, 

Yours sincerely 

Anne-Marie Blewitt and Alison Allford 


What the government says about who will be able to come to school: 

The government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. 

It is important to underline that schools remain safe places for children. But the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society. 

Schools are, therefore, being asked to continue to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. 

Vulnerable children include children who are supported by social care, those with safeguarding and welfare needs, including child in need plans, on child protection plans, 'looked after' children, young carers, disabled children and those with?education, health and care plans (EHCPs). 

Parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors outlined in the list below. Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home.  

And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. 

The government has asked schools to follow these key principles: 

  1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be. 

  1. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them. 

  1. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions. 

  1. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults. 

  1. Residential special schools, boarding schools and special settings continue to care for children wherever possible. 

If: 

  • your work is critical to the COVID-19 response,  

or 

  • you work in one of the critical sectors listed below,  

and  

  • you cannot keep your child safe at home  

then your children will be prioritised for education provision.  

If you or your child is in any of the groups listed, we hope you have already let us know if you intend to send your child to Ivanhoe College from Monday 23rd March.  If you have not yet let us know, or have any questions about the provision, please email keyworkers@ivanhoe.co.uk.  You can tell us whether you need your child to attend school for the full week or part-time if you can keep them at home on certain days each week. 

Leicestershire School Transport buses will run for these students only. 

We recognise that things may change and we will set up systems so that you can communicate easily about things we need to know to support your child.

STUDENTS ATTENDING SCHOOL FROM MONDAY 23rd MARCH 2020 

Phase 1 of Ivanhoe altered provision 

If your child is in school next week, we are calling the period prior to the Easter holidays "phase 1".  During this first phase of Ivanhoe altered provision we want to keep as much normality as possible for both us and the students. Students will be wearing full school uniform. 

The school day will follow our normal timings and pattern as far as possible.  

From 8.30 on Monday the day will run as follows: 

  • Arrival of students will be to the Dining Hall where they will receive a free breakfast and be registered by their Head of Progress. 
  • All students will in the first instance follow the 'Ash' half year timetable for their year group, this will give a full curriculum experience for students. This may change in phase 2 when we have more clarity on numbers   

School transport 

School transport will be available for those students who need to attend school. 

Free School Meals 

We are awaiting notification about how this will work.  We will contact you when we have more information. Students attending school will receive their free school lunch as usual. 

STUDENTS NOT ATTENDING SCHOOL FROM MONDAY 23rd MARCH 2020 

Home Learning and Self isolation - General Guidance 

We are living through unprecedented and extra-ordinary times. Ivanhoe will aim to continue the learning of all children while they are off school until we return to normality.  

1. The central point for all work is our Virtual Learning Environment - Moodle. There are a range of activities for your child to complete - the instructions are on Moodle but not all tasks are based on a computer. You might wish to equip yourself with basic stationery to support your child's learning. 

2. Primarily, your child will need their Moodle Login - it is in your child's planner and they use it regularly.  Follow the link to Home Learning Resources. Your child will then be directed through each subject area to a series of learning activities which may require further log ins: 

  • MyMaths login - this should be in your child's planner but please check.  Your child can ask their Maths teacher if they are not sure. The generic login is Ivanhoe and the generic password is reflect. 
  • Literacy Planet login - this should also be in your child's planner. English teachers can also provide these logins along with our librarian
  • French - Linguascope - this is a generic login, Username: Ivanhoeash   Password: lang20
  • Science - Kerboodle -  Username: same as Moodle username (but in lower case)    initial password: same as Username (You will be asked to change it after first login)  Institution code: dri4 Your child can ask their Science teacher if the password needs to be reset. 
  • Music - Focus On Sound - Username: Your SURNAME in CAPITALS followed by your First Name with the First Letter in Capitals and the rest of your name in lowercase e.g. SMITHDave Password: focus123

3. You should be able to access the work on a PC, via a tablet or phone. The majority of resources will be in PDF format which is compatible with all phones and tablets. If your child does not have access to a computer or a phone, then we have paper copies of a range of resources for you to collect from reception or we can send those out to you if you email us.  

4. Many of the activities require children to self-test and to use paper, pen or coloured pencils.  We suggest that your child follows the structure of a school day in order to organise their schoolwork.  

FOR EXAMPLE:  

Period 1 

(9 - 10 am) 

Maths - log on to moodle and complete the work set 

Period 2 

(10 - 11am) 

Physical Education - get some fresh air, play in the garden, physical activity, exercise routine on Youtube, exercise DVDs or yoga, for example 

 

 

Take a break

Period 3 

(11.20 - 12.20) 

English - log on to moodle for instructions plus 20 minutes reading 

Period 4 

(12.20 - 1.20) 

Art - Project work and creative work - see moodle 

Take a lunch break 

Period 5 

(2.05 - 3.05)   

Lifeskills - log on to moodle and complete the task from the menu set. 

 

For the duration of the school closure, new resources will be uploaded on Moodle on a weekly basis.  

This is a dynamic situation, which requires constant monitoring and we will attempt to keep you updated as necessary.  

We appreciate your patience as we deal with this ever-changing situation.  Thank you for your continued support and we will be in touch with more information when we can.   

Kind regards

Message to Parents 18 March 2020

Paper based home learning work is now available to collect from reception if your child is unable to access the online Moodle resources. Maths paper based learning has been given to your child if they can’t access the moodle work from home. If you will struggle to collect the work, please email homelearningresources@ivanhoe.co.uk giving your child’s name and year group, and we will arrange for it to be sent to you.

 

Letter to Parents 17 March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,             March 17th 2020

 

Following the announcement from the UK Government that we are moving from the ‘Containment’ phase of response to the ‘Delay’ phase, Ivanhoe will remain open and is operating as normally as possible in the current circumstances. We are entering the “fast growth” part of the upward curve.

The situation may result in some cancellations of activities that we judge to be more likely to present risk to our community. The first instance of this has been our decision to postpone the Music Liaison concert which should have been on the 20th March. We have also taken the decision to postpone Year 7E parents’ evening and to cancel all sports fixtures. Sports practices in school will continue as normal.

Please be assured that Ivanhoe is working hard to ensure the provision for education will continue. Provision for remote online learning, to facilitate as little disruption to learning as possible, is already in place should the situation change. In the interim, please could you make sure that your child is aware of the following logins:

1. Moodle Login – in your child’s planner. The instructions for school work in the event of a school closure will be uploaded onto Moodle. Follow the link to Home Learning Resources.

2. MyMaths login – these should be in your child’s planner but please check. Your child can ask their Maths teacher if they are not sure generic login: Ivanhoe generic password: reflect

3. Literacy Planet login – this should also be in your child’s planner. English teachers can also provide these logins.

4. French - Linguascope – this is a generic login Username: Ivanhoeash Password: lang20

5. Science - Kerboodle – Username: same as Moodle username (but in lower case) initial password: same as Username (You will be asked to change it after first login) Institution code: dri4 Your child can ask their Science teacher if the password needs to be reset.

We understand that this is a concerning time for everyone and we are making decisions based on the national advice and the welfare of our community. It was also made clear by the Government that tackling the virus ‘is a marathon’ and their timeframes are based on pacing the measures put in place in order to do the right thing at the right time. In the event of a school closure, we will send clear instructions about how and where to access school work for your child so that learning is not interrupted. The latest advice is that if you have a new persistent cough or a temperature you should selfisolate for 14 days, even with mild symptoms. There is now no need to ring 111 or to be tested. The Government stated yesterday that evidence suggests transmission occurs early, with mild symptoms and after 14 days the vast majority are not infectious. We will be supporting this advice with our students and staff. If your child is living with someone with symptoms, they must also isolate for 14 days.

Parents must be available to collect their child from school should their child become unwell and collection must be within 1 hour of contact from the school. We do not have the resources to care for unwell children for longer than this period, at this time. If children have either of the two stated symptoms above, then parents must self-isolate them at home for 14 days.

We are informed that handwashing works in preventing the spread of the virus and we will continue to encourage that daily with our community.

This is a dynamic situation, which requires constant monitoring and we will attempt to keep you updated as necessary.
