Since the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic we have seen our staff teams, time and time again, go above and beyond to support our children and young people during what is undoubtedly the most challenging and unprecedented of times.
Many of the young people supported in our schools thrive on the consistency and the daily routine the school day gives them and for some, any disruption to that routine can be unsettling. Providing that on-going consistency, support and encouragement for children – whether they are in the classroom or not – is just one way our schools are going above and beyond to make the children feel included and can have some normality in their day in a situation that is far from normal.
Our Arc Oakbridge School have been working hard to stay in touch with the children and their parents by using an online platform which all of the families are signed up to. The school can post updates, send lessons and learning, post messages to simply say ‘hello’ and send photos and videos.
This brilliant platform gives the opportunity for the children and families to post things back, so there is a real two-way communication. This is keeping everyone feeling connected and supported in this really challenging time.
Let’s hear what the parents have to say following the ongoing use of this fantastic platform........
- “We are so happy our child is in this school!”
- “The best access to education, the fun way!”
- “I love the heuristic approach to learning at the school.”
- “A super well done to all the staff at Oakbridge – you are all amazing!
Following a recent survey, 100% of the parents ‘agreed’ or ‘strongly agreed’ that their child had been receiving regular work while at home!
Great work to everyone at Arc Oakbridge School!
