On-Site Attendance form
ALL STUDENTS WHO CAN LEARN AT HOME MUST LEARN FROM HOME. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.
There are only 2 exceptions to this and only one relevant to Primary settings
Children on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made
. This will be available for children of parents who cannot work from home
, and vulnerable children, including:-
- children in out-of-home care
- children deemed by Child Protection and/or Family Services to be at risk of harm
- Children identified by the school as vulnerable (including via referral from a family violence agency, homelessness or youth justice service or mental health or other health service and children with a disability)
On-site provision will be available at all government schools, but only for students in the categories listed above
. This will be a “skeleton” staffing model….only staff who are required to be onsite
When on-site learning is provided, hand sanitizer will be available at the entry points to classrooms and education will be provided on hand hygiene. Physical distancing will be implemented in classrooms and unwell students will be excluded from attending.
The learning program delivered on-site will be the same as the learning program delivered to students undertaking remote learning. Students learning on-site will be supervised by an on-site teacher but follow the teaching and learning program provided by their classroom teacher. Playground equipment will be out of bounds, social distancing will apply both in the classroom and if venturing outside. Supervising staff will not be "teaching" the children this will be done via their own class teacher using the same resources as the children learning from home.
No student will be accepted onsite unless an ON-SITE ATTENDANCE FORM has been completed and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. This form is available by clicking on the link above and will need to be completed weekly and submitted by 3pm each Thursday for the coming week.
By close of business on the Friday this arrangement will be confirmed by the school.
We require parents and carers to read the document titled, Learning From Home: Information for parents and carers, which is also located on the website under the Home Learning Tab.
Important information about access to computers and internet and other advice, tips and resources to support children as they learn from home.
The following publication from The Victorian Department of Education and Training has outstanding advice and information about incorporating Numeracy and Literacy exposure in everday activities.
