Bramley Park In Lockdown

20 May 2020   |   Lynn Dove   |   Bramley Park Academy

What unprecedented times we are living in at the moment! Here at Bramley Park Academy this a snapshot of what we have all achieved to support our families in our local community over these difficult weeks;

  • Our teaching assistants are making twice weekly welfare calls to all pupils with the pastoral team making daily calls to all the vulnerable families and EHCP children.
  • The pastoral team and the office staff created a working document for all staff to access which allocated staff to children, and listed contact details. Staff were asked to record their conversations onto CPOMS, where the DSLs could monitor and evaluate whether any further home visits or referrals to outside agencies needed to take place. There are constant lines of communication open with multiple agencies including Bramley Cluster, CSWS, BARCA and other school provisions.
  • Before Easter, teachers had been extremely busy setting up Google classrooms for all our children to access. Now our pupils are accessing learning online. Google classroom is the provision we provide for home learning. Staff at school have worked incredibly
    hard to populate these daily with some fantastic resources, tasks and activities for our learners.
  • Support Staff are marking work online and communicating with pupils who might be struggling with their learning online or who might just want to have a chat with a member of staff.
  • Our office staff have been amazing coordinating the dispersal of FSM electronic vouchers, offering online advice to parents and answering the enquiry line.
  • Furthermore, we have been able to source some additional funding from the Greggs Foundation to support our most vulnerable families in the community. From this funding, we have been able to support 25 families (the equivalent of 60 children) food parcels
    that have been delivered throughout the course of the lockdown so far.
  • Pastoral staff have also arranged for 21 food and hygiene parcels to date to be delivered to 15 families via Zarach Charity. Parents and carers have been overwhelmed with the help and support of all the staff at school.

Parents have thanked Bramley Park for their continued support throughout this time.

“My children get really excited and look forward to your calls.”

“I was overwhelmed by the food parcel that was dropped off today, I won’t need to go shopping for at least two weeks, thank you.”
