Inclusion Leader: Miss Alison George
Thank you for continuing to support your child/ren in this continuing time of Home Learning. I have added some new links to apps and websites that have been recommended by the Department of Education to help support learning at home. As always, please check carefully any websites and apps that your child may be using and limit the 'screen time' that they have so that they are able to take part in a range of activities, indoors and more importantly (wherever possible), outside activities too.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions.
Thank you again for all your hard work at home,
Miss George - firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope that you are all well and keeping safe. In these tricky times, I hope that the information below will help support your child and family. For example, I have added some information about the 'Transition to Home Schooling.' Although it does talk about ideas for children with a specific learning need, I think that there are some very helpful hints, tips and links which are relevant to ALL children and parents.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any specific questions - email@example.com
With my other hats on, please don't forget to look at the Environmental Studies and RE pages of the website for more practical activity ideas. There is lots of evidence that tells us that being able to be outside and connecting with nature is great for our good mental health. So if your child is able to be safely outside - looking, listening, building, making - it would be a great idea. If you are able to share any photographs or notes about the things that the children have been up to I would love to hear about it - MissGeorge@stmarys306.herts.sch.uk

Returning to school – audit of needs
The Educational Psychology Service are creating a resource to help schools support the wellbeing of children and families in the return to school. To make sure this is matching the needs of parents, we would like to hear from school leaders and parents about any concerns you have and the support you would be interested in receiving. The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete and can be accessed by the following link: Parent survey: https://app.sli.do/event/l9wyw5z8
You and the families you work with may have received notification of a Hertfordshire County Council consultation regarding the future of SEND Information, Advice and Support services in Hertfordshire. For those who haven't been sent it directly , it can be accessed at www.Hertfordshire.gov.uk/iasconsultation.
The intention is that the KIDS Hubs will close and all Information, Advice and Support Services will come under the umbrella of SENDIASS.
Many thanks and kind regards,
