We hope that there won’t be another lockdown, but if there is, our tried and tested Lockdown Learning program is in place.
Our main goals during lockdown were to continue giving our pupils access to education and helping maintain a heathy mindset.
All classes had daily Zoom lessons in their main subjects and afternoon classes throughout the week in specialist subjects.
We provided subjects such as one to one reading, ICT, Science, Humanities and PSHE.
The decision to provide PE lessons via Zoom was made, as physical activity boosts endorphins thus counteracting any feeling of anxiety and depression.
And we are pleased to say that having returned to school, none of the children showed any learning gaps within their classes.
A huge thanks to our Hemdean House Parents as without their tremendous help and cooperation, the success would not have been as great.
