At the end of January we sent out a survey for parents about our Remote Learning offer and we were really pleased with the response. Below are some of the comments from parents.
What are we doing well?
Setting varied tasks using different platforms- so there is variety. The clips of teachers reading and spelling tests have been great- seeing the teacher is really good.
Allowing children and parents to do they work that feel comfortable and happy to do and sending alternative work if necessary.
Communication and feedback on the work has been really good.
Keeping in contact and offering support where need, instructions for work set are easy to follow and the children are enjoying most tasks.
Keeping the learning fun and setting lovely weekly projects that are encouraging our families to get creative together in the evenings.
Work is well planned and it is very clear to see what is expected each day. Daily feedback is wonderful and my youngest loves the verbal feedback from the teacher. Recorded lesson by the class teacher are well received and offer something different, for example a science lesson and experiment. Also daily contact via a message or short recording onto seesaw.
There are so many things as a school you are doing well and we appreciate. Such as providing suitable work, not overloading children, being supportive. Keeping parents up to date, the list goes on!
Do you have any other comments?
I think you are handling the ever changing restrictions with care and consideration to all families. Thank you everyone x
We are very happy with all aspects of home learning at this time, my children would clearly rather be in school but they are engaging with the learning and hopefully still making progress! Frequent communication from the school is also good, it certainly helps to know they we are doing things as expected. The way learning is organised and communication from the school is vastly improved from last year - thank you.
I like how the teachers are very responsive throughout the day by posting videos about questions the children are struggling with.
Thank you for taking time to give us feedback on work submitted - it really helps.
A massive thank you to all staff that have helped us through personal circumstances the last few weeks and have taken all pressures off the children and I, making things so much easier.
Only to praise the teachers and staff. I cannot imagine how tough this is for you and yet the teachers always seem to be smiling for the children. Thank you for all you are doing - you are amazing!!
Thank you for everything you are doing to support the home learners and school learners. I understand these are very challenging and difficult times, but parents are very grateful for everything Donisthorpe School has put in place :)
Thank you to all staff and the leadership team. We acknowledge how challenging this all is for them and the impact on their work-life balance too.
Thank you to all of the teachers for all of their hard work and support through this difficult time.
