Thank you for all your responses to our recent online learning survey. We wanted to share some of the comments received about our approach to remote learning:

Primary

Seeing their teacher explain a bit of their work, or hearing and recognising their voice, has REALLY put a smile on their faces.

My daughter enjoys all of it especially the feedback she receives.

My child likes listening to stories by the teacher.

Knowing her class are all interacting and doing work all at the same time and not feeling alone has really helped.

Watching videos and seeing the teachers reading/teaching brings my child a lot of joy.

My child loved seeing a video that his year group put together of the students and teachers dressing up as important individuals and talking about them. He misses everyone at school and enjoyed being able to see them.

My child really enjoys interactive games and loves seeing her teachers online everyday.

My son is enjoying having the online videos of teachers this time as he likes to see them still.

My child has enjoyed participating in group discussions with his classroom friends.

She enjoys her live meetings with her peers and being asked to answer and question and getting praises by her teacher and peers.

I wouldn’t change a thing. My child is at a fantastic academy.

I’m impressed with how the academy is managing.

The academy goes above and beyond to help.

Secondary

I just wanted to send an email to say thank you for the online live learning. It’s not the easiest of circumstances, but thank you to all of you for continuing to teach, and support the children.

I would just like to say a massive thank you for such fantastic home school learning, such hard work from all staff there to make this possible in these circumstances.

We like TEAMS and being able to chat with the teacher using the chat facilities and being able to still use pen and paper for work.

The way the academy is teaching my son is great. I have children at a different school and in comparison, using TEAMS is just fantastic.

I think our academy is doing an amazing job considering the current circumstances.

Teachers have handled the transition to online learning fantastically.

I think you are doing a great job at providing the learning and support for my daughter.

You have really excelled in their home online learning during this time.

The teachers have been so supportive. I have really appreciated them calling me to check my child is doing ok.

The academy is doing a fantastic job in difficult circumstances.

The academy has been a huge support to us both this last year.
