Remote Learning

 

 

​​​​​​​Our Head of Remote Learning is Mrs Vicki Bell

 

Collecting your feedback:

 

Dear parents and carers,

Thank you once again for taking the time to participate in our remote learning feedback.

There were some wonderful messages to share with staff and some really helpful comments that we used to target our support to areas where teachers were struggling.  Again, your lovely comments were really appreciated by the teachers.

 

Individual feedback was shared with the class teachers; however, here is a summary of some of the general points raised:

 

Feedback:15/02/21

 

Parents who responded: 8

 

What are parents loving across the school?

  • Where there are clear video lessons to explain the learning.
  • The fact that feedback is timely, encouraging and meaningful.  It is motivating children.
  • Having a variety in format; keeping things interesting for children.

 

What are parents suggesting we could try differently across the school?

  • Where it is hard to work out what is expected in a task or resources are hard to access.
  • There was one class where there was not adequate feedback being given.
  • Where there is a lack of variety in online/offline activities.

 

What have we done as a result of this feedback?

  • This general feedback was shared with staff in staff meeting and the more individual points were shared with individual staff via email.
  • Mrs Bell met went through each on-line classroom and then used these examples with staff to make the parent feedback clearer and explain what alterations could be made.
  • The specific points raised have been checked throughout the week.

 

I have now opened this week’s form for your comments and feedback.  As mandatory school-based education will be resuming on Monday 8th March, this will be you last opportunity to give your feedback to your child's teacher(s).

 

The new feedback form is linked here.

 

It is open now and will close at 9AM on Monday 01/03/21

Thank you very much,

 

Alison Garbett
