To make sure we are on the right track doing everything we can to accomodate the remote learning needs of our students and parents, we asked our parents to complete a short questionnaire. The responses from this are shown below:
“All the staff are putting an enormous amount of effort in to support the learning of pupils with different home facilities and learning needs.”
“I feel the level of work is pretty perfect as not too little but much more and I think I would struggle to keep the momentum going .”
“The school have done an excellent job in working through this difficult ordeal. It’s an extremely challenging time to manage both within the never-ending changes from government. It has required last minute contingency planning and the school have delivered.”
“The team are working really hard at such short notice to bring everything together and its becoming easier to follow.”
“The school has been exceptional in terms of communication with parents, organisation of materials and lessons provided for students, and the support overall for both children and parents. We have been very impressed.”
“We have really enjoyed that over the past week, a lot of the lessons have had a theme running through them. The Stickman yoga was fab!”
“I have found the teachers and staff to be most helpful going above and beyond. The amount of work and instructions are just right and allow a level of flexibility.”
