Dynamic teaching and learning online
Our core values and focused academic teaching at Monmouth remain at the heart of everything we deliver as part of our Online Schools programme.
Each member of staff adapted quickly and positively to the challenges of remote learning between April and July 2020 and continued to embrace the opportunities this provides from the start of the Lent term 2021.
At Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools, we have a wonderful sense of community and have maintained this sense of community through our outstanding teaching and learning online, as well as close pastoral support through tutor periods and assemblies and a range of co-curricular clubs, societies and rehearsals. Parents’ evenings and other events have been held via Teams and this has made it easy for parents to communicate with our teaching and pastoral staff and to hear about their children’s progress.
We returned to face to face learning for Years 11 and 13 on Monday 15th March and for the other year groups in the following week. We will recommence face to face teaching for all year groups in the Summer term.
To maintain a familiar framework and a sense of being at school, our current timetable operated seamlessly throughout the Lent Term.
Teaching staff delivered live lessons to all year groups, including our Prep school pupils, following the normal timetable with some afternoon lessons brought forward to accommodate pupils in different time zones. As software platforms, we used Office 365 and Microsoft Teams and, for our younger children, Seesaw.
Pupils and staff have learned much about the use of educational technology over the last year and our future teaching provision will be enhanced by these developments.
