At Merchant Taylors’, we never stop learning, and in recent years we have invested significantly in our remote learning technology to ensure that pupils receive an excellence standard of education, no matter the circumstances.
This approach came to the fore during the Covid-19 lockdown period, where the vast majority of our children were unable to attend the school site for many months, although we were of course open for the children of key workers.
We were able to provide online teaching and support every day to every pupil who remained at home, across all year groups including primary school, thereby minimising any interruption to their education.
Our dedicated staff delivered up to 500 live sessions per day, ranging from whole-class lessons and tutorials to formal assessments and one-to-one support.
We were delighted with the level of engagement among pupils and we have also spent time reviewing our technology to find further areas for improvement.
We are proud of our remote learning capability and we have great confidence that we are well-equipped to assist pupils handle any future challenges we may face together.
