In these difficult times we are proud to say that Chailey Heritage School has remained open to our students throughout the pandemic, continuing to provide education and care for our young people despite the enormous disruption of Covid-19.
Currently, we educate well over half of our pupil population on-site. However, we recognise that it won’t be appropriate for every pupil to attend school at this time, and understand why some families have taken the difficult decision to shield their child/ren at home.
The school has made great strides in developing a more flexible teaching and learning offer, incorporating new technology and adapted learning approaches into all aspects of life in school. We are therefore pleased to be able to offer those young people unable to attend Chailey in person, various opportunities to continue their learning and education programs remotely.
Exactly how a young person receives remote learning will depend on their profile of needs, the topics being covered, and their access to equipment etc., all of which will be discussed in detail with that young person’s teacher before any program is agreed.
Given the needs of our pupils, all remote sessions do need to be facilitated by someone who is with the pupil at home, which has given us excellent opportunities to coach family members in our teaching techniques. Here are some general examples of the type of remote learning opportunities that might be suitable for a Chailey Heritage pupil currently remaining at home.
If you would like to read more about how we have kept in contact with parents, families, and carers historically, please refer to the Governors’ report below.
