Lyndhurst at Home

Lyndhurst at Home

All students can learn and succeed, but not on the same day in the same way.

William G. Spady

At Lyndhurst House, whenever it is necessary for pupils to learn from home they are taught the full curriculum according to the timetable usually used when pupils are at school.  We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible, but some adaptations are made in certain subjects (such as PE and music, and some practical experiments in Science). 

Timings of the day remain as normal, although there may be some slight modifications around lunch times and break times.  In the senior part of the school lessons usually follow exactly the same pattern as normal, whilst in the younger years there is greater flexibility to suit younger learners.

Form teachers register their forms via Zoom each morning and afternoon, and lessons are taught using a mixture of Google Classroom, live Zoom lessons and some recorded Zoom lessons. 

Parents of any pupils who do not have online access at home should contact the school and we can arrange for extra support.  

Parent teacher meetings, and usual reporting arrangements continue as normal.  Pupils are assessed based on the work produced and submitted via Google Classroom, along with engagement and participation in live Zoom lessons.

We conduct regular surveys to assess the success of the remote learning programme, and make modifications to further improve the remote curriculum wherever necessary.

Our pupils and staff have been very resourceful and creative at home as you can see below:
