Our Journey into Online Learning

02 May 2020   |   Kirsty Greenwood   |   Bramley Park Academy

The new era of online learning is upon us and what a fast paced, exciting journey it has been for the staff and families at Bramley Park Academy.

From day one, the whole staff team has shown determination and passion to get our children learning online. They have taken on CPD to complete their Google Level One in preparation for the world we now face. While undertaking the training, staff have used their new skills to create not only an online classroom but a new learning portal on our school website.

The first step was to offer a web-page catered for each year group; including games, videos and activities that families could access while
staff prepared lessons. The second offering has seen each year group creating vibrant, creative and stimulating classrooms that mirror our
daily routine in school. Staff have approached this with the passion they always show in day to day teaching and the results have been mind-blowing. Children have been accessing the learning daily and chatting to school friends as well as staff. As a school we have created a range of inspiring lessons from PE videos with our sports coach to keeping our Early Bird Maths alive through a range of quizzes and practical tasks.

Our support staff have been invaluable with their ability to encourage and guide parents through Google Classroom; giving weekly welfare calls to offer love, support and praise. They have also supported teaching staff, giving out merits and certificates for the brilliant work we have received.

As well as the wonderful work the children have produced, feedback from parents has made the journey worthwhile, with one of our parent governors saying, “We would like to pass our thanks to the staff, the Google classroom learning has been brilliant and we’re so impressed at how much creative and engaging work is being put up every day and the dedication of the staff at this time. It is a difficult time for everyone and the support from school has been fantastic.”

The SLT could not be prouder with how the whole school has come together to ensure our children are accessing learning and keeping our school community going.
