Continued academic success
During the recent lockdowns we ensured our pupils succeeded academically through excellent online teaching and support. If, for any reason, we ever need to return to this way of learning, we’re ideally placed to support our pupils through those challenging times.
During full-time online learning, our provisions meant that we could continue to provide a high-quality education experience. We also recognised that learning from home will not always be straightforward, with multiple family members needing to work and study simultaneously in the same space.
The programme we devised was based on our current curriculum with vital feedback from existing parents. Supported by both live (synchronous) and pre-prepared (asynchronous) lessons and resources, our online learning offers a blend of different teaching methods and gives families the flexibility they need during changing times, as well as ensuring we were able to maintain our pupils’ academic progress.
Technology and platforms
Technology has become a fundamental part of our education, not only allowing us to deliver great teaching and learning, but as a platform for collaboration and productivity. We have witnessed first-hand the positive impact it can have, putting students at the heart of their learning by increasing engagement, developing intrinsic interpersonal skills, and preparing them for the future of adult life.
We use a variety of platforms and resources to support the learning and educational experience of our children. These platforms include:
- Microsoft Teams
In January all pupils from Year 3 were given their own personal HP devices which included Century Tech’s AI-powered learning software as part of the largest-ever school group roll out of artificial intelligence (AI). This enables our pupils to access personalised learning at home and school throughout any disruption.
Wellbeing and character development
As well as supporting academic success, we prioritise the emotional wellbeing of our pupils and their families.
By providing access to a range of resources, making wellbeing checks for pupils at home and ensuring that our online provision is flexible enough to fit with family life, we cater for all aspects of a child’s education.
