The learning journey: How your child continues to achieve their potential

Around the world, many of us are currently experiencing a time of uncertainty. The big changes which have occurred this year have affected the way almost all of us work, study and live. Throughout this period, delivering quality teaching and our full curriculum of education has remained our top commitment. Whether in the classroom or learning with us through our virtual school - each individual student, their unique learning journey and their academic goals are at the heart of what we do.

Sustaining excellence

What do we mean when we describe learning as a ‘journey’? It is the idea that the learning cycle is never linear for any child, it naturally fluctuates. In the classroom or through virtual schooling, every student experiences times of acceleration and others which are more challenging. Despite this year presenting its own unique challenges, this remains true of how students learn and it is our teaching approach that is key to nurturing this process.

Our teachers are experts in identifying the gaps in a child's understanding of a topic and personalising their approach to help them reach their targets. We have trained, and continue to develop, all of our teachers so that they are prepared and skilled in identifying where a child needs more support, regardless of environment. Most crucial to this is the quality time between teacher and student - so it is part of our standard programme that all teachers carve out opportunity with individual students to continually assess their progress and needs.

We also creatively adapt our lessons and resources so that any lesson a teacher would deliver in the classroom can be successfully delivered virtually too. This means that even if external scenarios suddenly change, students do not experience a break in curriculum or have a gap in subject knowledge. Similarly, students also have unlimited access to their Global Campus, Nord Anglia dedicated learning platform, on which they can collaborate with their peers around the world and access extra curricular activities from wherever they are.

 

Preparing for future

We are continually assessing how we can deliver, adapt and improve our offering for students and parents. We recognise that communication with parents on their child’s development is a key element in helping every student to achieve their very best.

We are also soon to be launching our new ed-tech platform. This platform will further improve the smoothness of learning so that recordings of classroom lessons and virtual lessons are both accessible via one single, easy to use platform. This new addition to our teaching programme will ensure continuity of learning and improve clarity for students, particularly if it is necessary for learning environments to be flexible.
