Kestrel Mead response to COVID-19

At Kestrel Mead we are proud of the offer that we gave to our local community during this global pandemic. Please see ‘Correspondence with Parents’ to understand the offer that we held during the national and local lockdown in Spring/Summer of 2020. As schools have returned, we have outlined our responsibility to ensuring that all pupils have access to our blended and remote learning to meet the challenges that undoubtedly lie ahead.

Remote Learning Curriculum Continuity – January 2021 Curriculum continuity during whole school lockdown  outlines the schools offer if your child has to isolate or shield, or if a class bubble needs to close. In the unlikely event of a school closure, this is also outlined with regards to everyone’s commitment to ensure children keep learning.

Kestrel Mead Recovery Curriculum outlines the schools response to ensuring all pupils have the ability to MAP their prior learning, MASTER any learning that was completed during the remote learning period and MOVE FORWARD with their learning to fulfill their potential. This is down using our 5 levers. Read this document to find out more

Food Parcels

We are pleased to tell you that we will be able to offer food parcels to those families who are receiving free school meals.  These will be available if the family is self-isolating due to COVID symptoms or if the child’s class bubble has to close due to a positive COVID case.
