Will there be extra lessons?
Unlike some schools who are extending the school day and offering additional lessons, at Witton Park we have taken a much more research driven approach that looks at the needs of a recovering student. Simply adding an extra lesson to the day does very little in terms of meeting the needs of a learner and instead, we have chosen to take a much more comprehensive and holistic approach as outlined above. For some year groups, those who are taking external exams at the end of the academic year Revision Central and Curriculum Clinics will be an action as usually in both the lead up to mock exams in March and then right up to the exams in May.
Where can we access extra work for my child to complete at home?
All learning materials are published on Google classroom, there are also some extra materials called ‘THE SIX BADGES OF…’ that are released every half term as another way that we are supporting independent learning and catch-up.
