Headteacher Update 4.4.2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope that you are well - we are thinking of you all at this time.
Firstly, I would like to wish you all a very happy Easter. As you know, we have now broken up for two weeks. Over Easter, you can contact the school office on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s 9.30 – 2.30.
Currently, we are providing vital childcare for the parents of Key Workers and for families in crisis. If any parent/ carer has any questions about their child's attendance during this time, please do call the school office for clarification on 0115 9155815.
After speaking with many parents and carers over the last week, many of you have continued to decide for your child to be at home with you during this period where social isolation is being advised. Please feel reassured, that we understand and support this decision.
We recognise that it must be very difficult at home as the usual school routine is not in place as well as the uncertainty as to when your child can return to school. Feel assured that school leaders are constantly checking Government guidance and will make appropriate adjustments to school attendance as soon as it is safe to do so.
At Rosehill School, we are committed to provide as much support for the pupils, families and staff as best we can. As always, our priority is the health, safety and well-being of the school community.
Home Risk Assessments
By now, school staff will have been in touch offering advice, support, activity ideas and will have helped risk assess how things are at home. We want to get as much help to you as possible, for example we may have sign posted you to other services/made referrals to social care or the Paediatric Community Team.
Please do remember that school staff can be contacted via the phone number above – you do not need to wait to hear from us. There is always at least one member of the senior leadership team in school on a daily basis (over Easter the office is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30 – 2.30).
If you contact us, we will endeavour to answer any question you have, however there may be occasions where we do need to get back to you. We will try to do this in a timely manner, but please do bear with us, as we are operating under exceptional circumstances and things are changing frequently.
If you have any concerns about a child’s safety or well-being, please contact the school on 0115 9155815 and/or Nottingham City Local Authority on 0115 9155815.
Health and Wellbeing
Please find below some useful links to NHS recommended helplines and other mental health and wellbeing websites. We have also added some new resources to our home learning page to support with physical fun activities that you can do from home.
Please check our home learning page on the website where teachers and support staff have been busy creating and identifying activities and resources you can use and try at home https://www.therosehillschool.com/home-learning/ There are a growing number of website links, activities and videos created by the teams at Rosehill to support you at home with your children. Please do remember, the home learning platform is one option for you, but if you feel you need other ideas, Rebecca Lynch Primary Dept Lead, is happy for you to email R.Lynch@rosehill.nottingham.sch.uk
E-Safety – Keeping your child safe at home:
To help keep your child safe at home whilst using the internet, please look at the e-safety information which can be found in the home learning page. This has guides on how to set up parental controls on devices and how to help your child understand ways they can protect themselves online.
Free School Meals
For those of you whose child has free school meals you will have received a food voucher, which was kindly delivered by staff from the SEN Team. We are pleased to let you know that we have sourced further vouchers to help during this time. These will be delivered shortly. Please note the vouchers are for free school meals only.
We are also continuing to add additional advice and guidance to our website. These links will be updated regularly so keep checking the website for more ideas, links, activities and video clips. Click on the links below for current advice and information
Keep safe. Thinking of you all
Cheryl Steele, Headteacher
