Please let us know how learning from home is going for you?


How is learning from home going for you? 

We're sending this survey (linked below) to try and get a sense of how things are going for you after the first three days of learning from home. At this stage we are still not sure how long we'll be expected to work from home, but it is very likely it'll be at least until the end of the month so we need to get an idea about what is working well and what we might need to change.

Bear in mind that staff are rapidly learning what works, and what does not really work too - we are all in this together!


I'll send the same survey at the end of next week so that we are getting a good sense of how it's going for you.

How much learning to do?

 It is intentional that learning over this time is different, we are not asking our families to be teachers. We are not expecting that learning at home will be from 9.00-3.00. Make sure you keep things balanced at home.  If you are working from home, and it is too hard to support your child with their learning from school, don't do it!  At intermediate age, students should be able to manage themselves, and teachers are accessible via email so do ensure that students ask their teacher for help if they need it.

Attendance

All students will be marked as attending over the time we are off-site.  However, we will be tracking whether students are engaging with their learning and handing in assignments. Teachers will be in contact if we are concerned that students are not engaging at all.
