Remote Learning Survey - February 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

With huge thanks to our parents/carers who recently completed a survey on our remote learning provision. As promised, I said I will feedback the main outcomes; the positive and the areas for improvement:

  • How challenging remote learning is for parents/carers and children namely: having to learn so much online, too much screen time.
  • At times too, much is expected from the children, children in exam classes feeling very stressed.
  • The home context is sometimes very hard for both children and their families; a cramped environment, sharing electronic devices, the challenges parents face teaching their own children as well as balancing their own lives is enormous.
  • Appreciation of what is being done by Oaklands staff for the children is well recognised.

Full details of the survey can be found here : Remote Learning Survey 2021

Thank you for all the support you give us at Oaklands.
