Dear Parent/Carer,

As directed by the Scottish Government remote learning will begin from Monday 11th January. The following arrangements are in place to ensure continuity of learning for your child during this time:

P1-P3 will receive learning experiences shared through Seesaw, which all children have access to using the Seesaw App or from  web.seesaw.me/parents.

P4-P7 will use Microsoft 0365 Teams, which can be accessed through the children’s Glow account.  Information for parents/carers on how their child uses Teams is available on the following link:  bit.ly/wlglowguide

It is expected that your child accesses Seesaw/Teams daily to engage with the planned teaching and learning experiences. Your child will have a number of tasks assigned to them each day, some of which may be live or recorded lessons. As part of learning and teaching, the children will share their learning, receive feedback and support where required.

To support parents/carers to manage home learning, and ensure a consistent approach across the school, here are specific details of what to expect:

Learning in P1-7 will consist of lessons and activities related to Health and Wellbeing; Numeracy and Mathematics; Literacy and other areas of the curriculum.

Remote learning can be very difficult for families, so please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions or require further information. The school email is wlcarmondean-ps@westlothian.org.uk and the telephone number is 01506 432492.

Our school team will continue to provide all available support to your child and family where we can during this challenging period.

Yours sincerely,

Gillian E Millar

Head Teacher
