We are very pleased that we have been able to relax the systems of previous years.
If any child needs to isolate then we will send out our remote learning planner immediately and will set assignments via Teams. This was incredibly successful during the lockdowns and we were very proud of the children, their levels of engagement with direct teaching as well as the high standards of work they produced. Thank you for supporting your children so well during a very difficult time.
“I just wanted to say a big, big thank you for all the hard work that is so evident in supporting our children with the most recent lockdown and school closures. The transition to online provision has been so smooth for us as a family. The daily Teams meetings has given structure and focus to the day which has helped maintain the learning mindset that would be seen in school. I especially want to thank (teacher) for such professionalism during the Teams sessions and responses to messages and work sent in. (Teacher’s) patience and support for the children has been exceptional and (child) has responded very positively to the contact Teams allows with (class). While we are not always able to complete a full timetable each day due to my own work and study commitments, engagement with the provision is positive and enriching. Nothing compares to being in school but I think High Down are meeting and exceeding any remote requirements to keep children learning and interacting with their syllabus and classmates.”
