We have received lots of positive feedback about the work that was set during lockdown, here are just a few of the comments from parents...
"Mrs Burrows was an absolutely fantastic support during lockdown. She was extremely understanding and supportive."
"Google classroom worked really well for us and made this lockdown much easier than the first one."
"My son especially enjoyed the daily meets to be able to see and interact with both teachers and friends during lockdown, it was the highlight of his day."
"Ravensmead really went above and beyond to support us in every way. For example, we had a tricky Maths question and one teacher recorded personalised audio for us to explain the answer. We honestly couldn't ask for anything more."
"Great variety of lessons and very well organised by the teachers. My son enjoyed every aspect of home learning and was encouraged by all the lovely comments about his work."
If required, we endeavour to continue home learning through digital platforms. Families without access to the internet or devices are still able to complete work set via a printed home learning pack which they can collect each week, until we can secure digital devices and data for the household.
Nursery is open for all children but if a child is required to isolate then they would refer to the home learning website and if the Nursery bubble is required to isolate then the Nursery staff will provide morning check-in videos and story time videos, additional to the home learning resources.
Reception provide check-in videos on the home learning website every morning and a story read by the teacher at the end of every day, as well as videos for pastoral and speech and language support.
In KS1 & KS2, children are accessing their home learning using Google Classroom. Google Meet is used daily for video conferencing so teachers can “check in” with the children working at home.
We are aware that if all schools are required to work remotely then there may be technical issues and bandwidth restrictions. We are also mindful that some students may find working from home challenging.
