There have been times in the last year when we have moved our teaching and learning to a virtual platform. Our children have a full timetable during remote learning, including a live English and a live Maths lesson everyday, drop- in clinics when they need help or would prefer to work alongside their teacher, independent topic lessons with all resources provided and specialist lessons in PE, French, Drama and Music, some of which are pre-recorded. Children and their parents submit all work every day for fast and meaningful feedback and can communicate with their class teacher at any point in the day. We also support children for a range of reasons, including those who need a challenge and those who are finding a concept challenging through our use of breakout rooms and teaching assistant interventions on the screen. We have been proud of our pupils and their teachers as they have continued to show their exceptional motivation and that they can produce outstanding work even in adversity!
We provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum which is accessible to all our children and based on the National Curriculum. We aim to help our children to develop into positive, responsible and confident people who achieve their full potential. Goodwyn School is a happy, sociable and unpretentious school, where children’s efforts and achievements are valued, recognised and rewarded. Our girls and boys are enthusiastic individuals, with lots of character and energy, who enjoy their time at school. We aim to provide the children with a life-long love of learning through our diverse and varied approach to teaching and learning. The PDFs below give a summary of this term's work.
