SUPPORT FOR PUPILS DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE

 

Do you miss your friends, your favourite subject, your Guidance Teacher?

 

Lots of things help to support you when you are in school.  While you are not at school, we still care about you.  We want you to be okay and managing some learning.  Here are some of the things happening at Dingwall Academy to help you:

 

·         Keeping in touch: we are using hangouts, emails, google classroom, phone calls and social media.

·         Daily Registration and Weekly Well-being Check-in: this helps us to know that you are accessing your google classrooms and if you’re okay.

·         Schoolwork: your teachers set your work in the google classroom for you to try at home.  Please share things that are going well, and if you’re stuck.

·         Guidance Teachers: are still looking out for you!  They are in contact with pupils, teachers, and parents/carers.

·         Additional Support Staff: are still looking out for you!  They are in your google classrooms and can help with your learning using hangouts.

·         Health & well-being: it’s really important that you are safe and well.  If you don’t feel safe or are worried about anything, please speak to a trusted adult.  See contacts below.

·         If you need help from a counsellor or mental health worker, please get in touch with your guidance teacher or use the contacts below.

 

Please remember that lockdown will come to an end.  We will return to school.  Stay safe, look after yourself and your family, stay at home and wash your hands lots.
