At Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools, we are rising to the challenge and will be moving our outstanding educational offer online as we remain closed to all but key workers’ children. We recognise the importance of keeping our wonderful school community together even during the most difficult of times.
Our new, online provision will give unprecedented support to children and parents, both at home and overseas, in the coming weeks and, possibly even months. We have accelerated our plans for remote learning across our family of schools and are confident that we are equipped to deliver it with the flexibility and adaptability necessary. We realise there might be concerns over time-zones, sharing equipment, accessing technology or even the global demand for broadband and websites. However, please be reassured that we understand these anxieties and we will be with you every step of the way as we embark on this online adventure together.
As we move forward, the resources and breadth of material will grow. Through a range of state-of-the-art educational software, teacher support and real-time guidance, we will be delivering educational excellence in its broadest terms. We have also provided a link to safeguard your children online and show you how to build in parental controls while your children work independently or access projects via our portal.
Whenever possible and to keep a semblance of normality, our pupils will follow their usual timetables and teachers will upload the necessary resources to support these virtual lessons. Students will be able to interact with their teachers either via email or using Teams for senior school children, or Seesaw for our Pre-Prep and Preps. Assignments will continue to be set, and feedback given.
We have always been proud that Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools are so much more than what happens in the classroom. We might be closed for the majority of our pupils, but as a community and an educational establishment, we are open and will continue to support our students in the world of learning.
