We are really sorry not to be seeing many of the children in school, but your Wallands’ rainbows are cheering us up!
From the beginning of this term, parents will have the choice to either continue with online learning from https://www.thenational.academy or download from year group pages/collect a learning pack which we will be provide every two weeks starting Monday 8th July.
We recommend that you spend some dedicated learning time every day involving a variety of activities. Please don’t worry if you are not able to complete all the activities. We know that everybody’s situation at home is different and home learning can be challenging for everyone!
Also check our new blog where we will share whole school challenges https://wallands.edublogs.org/

For our parents with children with and ASC who may be struggling with their anxiety CLASS+ is an ESCC service that can offer support. Parents can contact CLASS+ by calling the CLASS number on 01273 336887. Contact information will be taken and passed to the CLASS+ team who will then get in touch with the parent/carer. In addition, the weekly advice line continues to run every Monday 10am- 1pm on the above number, when parents/carers can talk directly to a CLASS+ practitioner. A range of resources and information is also being shared on the CLASS+ Facebook page to further support parents/carers. This can be found here:https://www.facebook.com/CLASSPlusEastSussex/
Some website links have been recommended by ESCC:
The Council for Disabled Children (CDC), following the Minister’s request, has launched two new email inboxes aimed to answer questions, collate resources and share information on Coronavirus and the impact on children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). They are designed to be used by professionals, practitioners, parent carers and families of children and young people with SEND. For more information please click here.
A resourceful booklet of indoor activities, how to structure routine and ways to manage wellbeing to support children with a learning disability. To view the document please click here.
An accessible, clear podcast setting out the role parents have during this period and why they are not replacing teachers, but enhancing their own parenting.
