Guides for Parents
The COVID-19 outbreak has led to new living, schooling and working arrangements that we have all had to cope with. We know that moving from regular on-campus school to a completely online learning environment changes established routines of everyone at home, not just our students.
To better support our parent community through this period, we have created resources for parents of children across all age groups (Early Years, Junior School, Senior School) to help them and their child better manage the transition to online learning.
Moving from regular on-campus school to a completely online learning environment changes established routines of everyone at home, not just our students. To support our families through this transition, here are some suggested Dos and Don’ts for parents navigating online learning.
Online learning is a new experience for many of our parents, and no one has felt the impact of that switch more than the parents of our youngest students. To help support you during this challenging time, we have compiled a number of tips for parents to keep Early Years children well in mind, body and spirit.
Online learning might be a new experience for many parents, especially those with younger children. Here you’ll find some common questions that parents might have and some recommended strategies to help ease the transition for both the student and their parents.
Although no online provision, however good it is, is as good as being in school, we do want to give our parents a sneak peek of our online learning programme and showcase the creativity and innovation exhibited by our teachers.
