Distance Learning Programme
At the core of Mowden Hall School’s approach to distance learning is the belief that we should think differently about our priorities when responding to challenging circumstances, and we should embrace new opportunities for pupils to learn in authentic, meaningful ways. Our Distant Learning Programme is now in place and is being delivered through Google Classroom.
Live lessons will be delivered to all our children alongside set tasks and assignments. Drop-in sessions will also be available throughout the week for pupils requiring support. For our youngest children we are using Tapestry to facilitate their learning journey.
There will be a live assembly once a week for both the Prep School and Pre-Prep. Each morning, pupils will log on to their Form Class where they will see their Form Tutor and friends. These sessions will provide opportunities for our tutors to keep in touch with their tutees and to ensure they are supported pastorally.
Hear our Parents' Feedback
We are so grateful to Mowden for everyone’s fantastic efforts in keeping up the morale of the children and putting so much effort into successfully establishing remote learning. As parents, we have particularly enjoyed your vlogs and seen parts of the school that we didn’t even know existed! There have been some brilliant extra-curricular activities and achievements posted on Instagram and we are so grateful to Mowden for sharing - they definitely help to keep the spirits up!" - Parent
Our Distance Learning programme is in full swing with nearly all our pupils from Years 2 to 8 taking part in live lessons for most of the full school day. Children in Reception and Year 1 are learning through the Tapestry programme. All children log on at 8.30am each day, for either Assembly or Form Time to ensure our pastoral monitoring can continue effectively and our Form Tutors are in regular contact with their tutees. Lessons and drop-in sessions are provided for all subjects including PE along with a host of other activities on offer for pupils to explore at home. One to one lessons are also available where appropriate and our well-being site provides a host of information for pupils and their families at this time.
"Firstly I would like to say how brilliant we feel the online learning provision has been, it has been great to have been able to retain the structure and learning throughout these strange times, all the teachers have been fantastic and our son certainly feels engaged which is remarkable through a computer screen!" - Parent
