COVID Recovery/Remote Curriculum

COVID RECOVERY

Upon the return to school, it is our ultimate aim that students of Charters School will continue to be well-rounded intellectually, socially and emotionally.  We will help them once more to become equipped with the skills and knowledge for life, work and learning – literacy, numeracy, communication, creativity and aesthetic appreciation – in order to be able to flourish within a decent society.​

We will do this by:​

  • Investing in and restoring the relationships triangle between the school, our students, and their families​, ensuring it is once again strong
  • Understanding the needs of our students and our community
  • Addressing the gaps in education​ by consulting with our students and developing our curriculum to address these gaps
  • Making the skills for learning in the school environment explicit to our students to reskill and rebuild their confidence
  • Providing space for our students to rediscover themselves, helping them to find their voice on learning

REMOTE CURRICULUM

When unable to attend school in person due to a Covid-19 diagnosis, students will be offered the opportunity to engage with the curriculum remotely from the first day of isolation.  Based on research-informed practise on remote learning, we feel this continuity of learning supports students by:

  • Maintaining social interaction with the teacher and classroom
  • Allowing teachers to check understanding
  • Encouraging deep thinking as well as precious knowledge

Through the use of MS Teams, lessons are therefore delivered simultaneously in class and remotely.  Whilst every effort is made to ensure this form of blended learning operates effectively, this approach does have challenges and we hope that all parties are patient where issues emerge.  The following information and guidance to students and parents has been produced to support remote learning.
