The structure of the day was similar to school so helped the children with routines and attendance.
The timetable being consistent gave the children really clear structure which I feel helped them during an unsettling time.
The PDM about small steps in Maths helped to facilitate meaningful lessons - children remembered more and felt more supported. It was so useful to have that training which improved my practice.
I had nearly 100% attendance most days which was a huge success of the remote learning. This was due to the commitment of the leadership team and teachers to swiftly follow up with any students who were absent.
During this time, we were able to improve the students’ IT skills and were so quick to get more technology into their homes.
I personally have become a more explicit and clear teacher. The PDMs and having to teach online called for a direct, clear and explicit way of teaching. I have carried these tips over into my classroom practice.
