Remote Learning

Senior School Remote Learning

The implementation of our online learning strategy has ensured a smooth transition into teaching and learning remotely.

We continually look to review and develop our digital strategy, adopting new teaching techniques to enhance the curriculum and enrichment activities.

Pupils follow their normal timetable

A full curriculum with live teaching, as well as pastoral form times, assemblies and extra-curricular activities has continued. All pupils are now well-versed in learning remotely and their learning and progress, whilst different, will continue apace during this time.

Our Online Learning Strategy ensures that:

  • there is face-to-face interaction between teachers and pupils in every lesson
  • there is greater structure in place for pupils with the ongoing expectation of high quality work being completed; no passive learning
  • guidance and support will be available from their class teacher for every lesson
  • regular pastoral support from tutors and tutor group interaction
  • clear expectations of what pupils need to do
  • recognition postcards (via email) for excellent work or effort will be sent by teachers
  • notifications (via The Hub) will be applied for non-attendance or non-completion of work.

Online Learning And The Use Of Technology

The implementation of our online learning strategy through the Prep School has ensured a smooth transtion into teaching and learning remotely.

We continually look to review and develop our digital strategy, adopting new teaching techniques to enhance the curriculum and enrichment activities. Creativity is important in education more than ever and the staff at Tranby are providing a wealth of opportunities through our co-curricular provision to allow the children to be creative despite these latest lockdown measures.

Live registrations and live lessons provide the children with a connection and relationship to their class friends and multiple teachers.

Our Online Learning Strategy ensures that:

  • there is face-to-face interaction between teachers and pupils each day
  • there is greater structure in place for pupils with the ongoing expectation of high quality work being completed; no passive learning
  • guidance and support will be available from their class teacher everyday
  • regular pastoral support from form tutors and group interaction
  • clear expectations of what pupils need to do
  • recognition postcards (via email) for excellent work or effort will be sent by teachers.

Well-being and Pastoral Care

The well-being of our pupils is as critical as ever at the moment. Adapting to remote learning, facing the issues relating to isolation and the unusual pattern of lockdown-life, the School's pastoral system has and is there to be their crux.

Our daily form times ensure regular interaction with form tutors and friends. Form Tutors and Heads of Year are making weekly welfare calls to all pupils, whilst School Council gives all students the opportunity to voice any wider concerns.

Who can pupils talk to? We're still here for them!

Pupils are able to contact their form tutor, their Head of Year, or Deputy Head (Pastoral), Mrs Bloomfield, through the new worrybox email.
