Maltman’s Green is committed to delivering excellence in education. Our extensive school site offers first class facilities and outstanding sporting and extra-curricular opportunities, but what marks us an exceptional school is our first-class teaching, and this is something that does not change in a virtual learning world.
There is no predicting the future need for adaptations to the girls’ learning due to school closures, so we are making sure that we will have the capability to respond swiftly and provide full on site teaching, full distance learning and any blend of the two as required.
Through the use of digital tools such as Microsoft Teams, My School Portal, live lessons and video/audio streaming, we are able to offer a robust educational experience, allowing the girls to make use of online learning programmes and take part in live sessions that help to bring the learning to life and the Maltman’s community together.
Through a close, supportive partnership with parents, our distance learning provision can be a success for our girls, allowing them to enjoy a thorough, varied and stimulating virtual education.
The girls’ timetables can be adapted for home learning, while still offering a full programme of lessons and activities. We appreciate that not all families can necessarily stick to our schedules, so provision is made for work and lessons to be available for the girls to access at any time. We would also continue with our personalised learning provision, offering different tasks to suit the different ways in which the girls learn. Outside of live lessons, teachers would be available throughout the day to offer guidance and support, and two live form times per day would give the girls opportunity to seek counsel from their form teacher and interact with their form.
There are a variety of ways in which girls can complete lesson exercises, submit their work and receive feedback from their teacher, so that they will always know what they need to work on and the criteria for success.
Each phase would also enjoy a special pre-recorded assembly each day in order to explore our termly themes, reinforce our mindsets and offer a sense of cohesion.
