Highfield Remote Schooling

The move to remote schooling was daunting for everyone, especially for schools with international pupils. So what does a successful online programme look like?

When homeschooling became widespread at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, many schools felt an immediate urgency to try to replicate the school timetable at home and to provide the best online teaching. We learnt many valuable lessons in the period of innovation that followed, which have informed our online provision during this second school shutdown.

For starters, we re-structured the school day. We deliver academic lessons in the mornings via live online teaching, video lessons, and interactive sessions and activities. In the afternoons, we focus on sport-based activities and sessions to promote well-being or develop additional ‘soft’ skills. Lessons and activities are recorded so international pupils (or those with shared access to technology) are able to take part at a time that suits them.

In a recent survey, 94% of our parents said their child is motivated and engaged in their online learning, which was very reassuring to hear.
