In line with Welsh Government guidance Kings Monkton School is closed to onsite learning for the majority of pupils from 4th January 2021. We will have a hub provision open for children whose parents are Critical Workers and our vulnerable children, and this small, essential service will run from 08.30-15.25 weekdays. Our provision for our youngest class – Foundation – is also open.
As during our last lockdown, all our lessons have moved online with full face to face teaching happening every weekday, with the pupils following their full curriculum on our google classroom platform. Key stage 4 and Post 16 pupils continue to complete their controlled assessments and build their portfolio evidence for Centre Assessed Grades, as well as sitting examination style mock examinations to ensure they build the evidence necessary to get the grades they deserve this summer.
Our wellbeing provision has also moved online with all interventions and wellbeing sessions happening for pupils. Our Wellbeing Coordinator carries out regular contact with pupils to ensure they are safe, happy and coping with the demands of lockdown. Academic Mentoring is supporting pupils in monitoring their progress with online learning and that they are making the progress expected for their ability.
The wellbeing of our pupils is essential and choir, orchestra and even yoga continues to ensure that they have time away from the screen, but also importantly relax and gain balance in their lives.
