Lockdown Learning Survey
The period of lockdown, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, had a considerable impact on our children and young people in a range of ways, with a significant amount of innovative work undertaken by school staff to support learning and wellbeing during this extraordinary period.
During lockdown, Kinross Primary used the following measures to engage and support learners and families:
- Online learning via Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams and Twitter
- Supporting learners and families to access new online learning platforms
- Regular contact from SLT and class teachers
- Activity Hub for Key Workers and vulnerable families
- Use of Flipgrid to support transition
- Digital transition for Nursery Newbies, Nursery -Primary 1 and P7-S1
- Daily 'What's On' issued via Twitter
- Issuing of iPads to identified families
- Delivered paper packs of learning to families with no access to online learning
- School website populated with a suite of online learning resources, by stage
- Resources 'helpbox' given to local businesses for families to access
- Issuing of staff videos to reconnect with learners and families
- Regular video calls for groups of children with their class teacher
- Communication using digital newsletters on the reopening of school
- Referral to Educational Psychologist for telephone contact support
- Referral to Broke not Broken to support families impacted by COVID-19
It is vital that we take time to learn about the impact of this learning at home from our parents/ carers and families. This survey will provide data to inform future planning activity and to inform the ongoing assessment of the impact of this time.
The survey is now open and will close on 4 October 2020 by visiting https://consult.pkc.gov.uk/change-and-improvement/21f69967/
Your participation and support is greatly valued and the information gathered will be vital for our service improvement agenda.
