Remote Learning – Parents share their views

Over the last two weeks, many of our parents have taken part in a survey about the provision and support for the remote-learning that we have put in place.  Teachers are working very hard to provide learning for all children who have to stay at home under the current restrictions. Alongside this, the various ways that the school has tried to support children and parents have also been crucial. However, what is really important is to ask parents about the work being set and to find out if the support provided is helping, or if we need to make any changes.

The survey responses so far show that almost 90% of children are completing most or all of the work set, with 80% of children spending between 1 – 4 hours every day on their home learning. Parents say that the biggest challenge for them is  trying to support the remote-learning for siblings in different classes at the same time. another key challenge for parents has been trying to juggle the remote-learning for their children alongside working from home themselves. Parents particularly like the structured plans for every day and also find the live-stream support sessions very helpful. Overall, parents have given the school a mark of 4.4 out of 5, but there is still time for others to complete the survey and let us know what you think.
