Live and Online

With the announcement of lockdown during COVID-19 Stormont School had already begun to plan for an uncertain future.  Live online lessons were put in place for the whole school including assemblies so that teachers could keep in touch with the pupils.  It has to be said that there was a lot of online learning for the teachers and Senior Leadership Team but with dogged determination Stormont School pulled together.  Each week the live lessons increased, every child was issued a secure email address so that work could be issued and returned to be marked by the class teacher.  When the good news came that Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 could return we welcomed them with open arms (but not literally due to social distancing).  It was so lovely to see the girls and for them to see their teachers.   With lots of planning and discussions and a huge amount of work, Stormont School rose to the challenge and although we didn’t have to bring the whole school back, we felt the decision was right.  We anted to give the girls (and parents) some structure and to finish an extraordinary term on a high.  We had 90% attendance which was outstanding.

We even managed an online concert and Prize Giving!

Live Lessons at Stormont School

All lessons at Stormont School are live!  From the start of this second lock down the Senior Leadership Team and the teaching staff knew that the best way to keep the curriculum on track was to have staff work from home teaching live.    We do have key worker children in school to support those who need our help with supervision but they all follow the same curriculum online.

We have listened to parents, adapted where needed and listened to the girls because their welfare and their continuing education is key.  Of course, we would love to be in school together and we look forward to that day but in the meantime, it is business as usual just in a different location.

If you are interested in Stormont School for your daughter, do contact us, we are here to listen.
