Dear Parent/Carer

With Liskeard School and Community College fully reopen, the expectation is that all students attend school as normal. We are aware however that there may be a need for some students and families to isolate for a period of time due to the following reasons:

  • Your child has any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste).
  • Your child has tested positive for coronavirus.
  • Someone in the household has symptoms or has tested positive.
  • Someone in your support bubble has symptoms or has tested positive.
  • You’ve been told by NHS Test and Trace that you've been in contact with a person with coronavirus.

In these exceptional circumstances, we will be using Microsoft Teams as a platform for absent students to access and complete school work whilst isolating. Show My Homework will continue to be used but for setting homework tasks only.

Please read the attached guide to help support your child in the use of Microsoft Teams. Students will also receive training in school via ICT lessons (KS3 students only) and via training delivered during tutor time.

Teachers will be saving the resources they use in class on Microsoft Teams on a lesson by lesson basis. This means that if your child is isolating at home for a period of time, they will still be able to access the resources shared with students in class. Please note that we will not be able to provide resources with detailed overviews as we were during the recent full school closure. Therefore, whilst the school is fully open, only the electronic resources that a teacher uses will be provided.

If further whole school or partial closures are necessary in the future, we will return to providing a comprehensive home learning package as per the previous school closure.

Kind regards,

Chris Knipe
Deputy Head
