We understand that, during these difficult times, our parents and girls need to be reassured that we will continue to provide a high quality and robust education, whatever circumstances we may face.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for the way you have all managed the sudden change to remote learning. The support the girls are getting both academically and pastorally is a tribute to you all.
In our Senior School, teaching staff will set work for each lesson by 9.00am each day, via our online Show My Homework system.
Most lessons will take place live, via video meetings on Microsoft Teams. However, there may be times when teachers set work via another method if they deem it more appropriate for the learning taking place and to ensure girls continue to receive a variety of learning experiences, as they would in School. Feedback will be given verbally or work will be marked and returned, to enable you, and us, to keep track of how your daughter is progressing.
Pastoral support will continue to be provided through contact with your daughter’s Form Tutor and Head of Year. In the event of a Year Group self-isolating, we will provide Year Group Assemblies remotely. Our School Nurse is also available to answer any queries or concerns, through email, telephone or Teams meetings.
In the Junior Department, work will be set on SatchelOne (For Years 1 to 5) or Tapestry (for EYFS) by 9.00am each day. Girls will be taught the same curriculum remotely as they would be taught in School, wherever possible and appropriate. Teachers will provide classwork and homework to ensure the pupils’ learning is as uninterrupted as possible. Teachers will provide work and details of how to submit the work.
Pastoral support will be provided from your daughter's class teacher who is happy to speak to parents via Teams on any concerns you may have.
