We are currently putting systems into place so that we will be able to set work for your children if schools have to close due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We will be using the Seesaw platform to do this. Pupils who are in school will receive a QR code to access their folder. A 12 digit code will be sent to the parents of pupils who are not in school to allow them to access their Seesaw folder. Work will only be added to this if school is officially closed
Please see information below about how to access Seesaw portfolio for your children. Work will only be added to this if school is officially closed.
Information about Key Workers
Following the Minister's statement last night, in which he said that some child care provision would be made available in schools for children of key workers, the Lisburn association of Principals, taking guidance from other groups, have written a collective letter to our parents. The letter is attached below.
Please note the very important points below:
- any provision will be offered only and strictly to parents who meet the criteria outlined in the letter,
- any provision will be child care, not teaching. (i.e. this will not be 'school'),
- any provision is dependent on staffing and our ability to facilitate it.
It is also of extreme importance to bear in mind that the necessary purpose of school closures is to keep our children apart to prevent the spread of this virus. Bringing children (even in small numbers) back into a school environment is counter productive. So, while we are always willing to offer any help that we can, we still advise key workers to make this option a very last resort.
