We have been through and are still going through a challenging time but throughout this journey one thing has remained constant, our belief that the academic and pastoral curriculum should go hand in hand and run parallel with each other. We have continually adapted and modified our online provision, taking parent views into account. This has meant that we have been able to provide innovative and engaging lessons for our children whilst maintaining our strong sense of community. Overarching all of this is our fundamental philosophy that children deserve a childhood. Their happiness and well being is paramount to us and is supported with excellent pastoral care, delivered by the teachers and through planned activities that encourage them to have fun whilst engaging with the whole community.
From the very beginning we have endeavoured to support both the children and parents in our quest to deliver the ‘Manor Lodge’ our community knows and loves. Below are some of the ways we have maintained this link with our families.
At the beginning of the Autumn Term, individual booklets were sent home to parents to give them a clear understanding of the day. This included a question and answer section to help answer the most asked questions by parents and children alike.
Our new timetable is built on experience and we believe it offers families the flexibility to work with the school whilst dealing with their own family demands. The lessons delivered remotely work in tandem with the lessons the children undertake in school.
