We recently surveyed parents and carers about our remote education offering. Key findings are:
The vast majority (97%) are happy with the remote education provision and 92% are confident that their child is learning while at home.
94% told us that the work set for their child is at the right level of challenge and 92% agree that it was the right amount.
The vast majority of parents and carers praised the school for their dedication and efforts to make sure their children are still learning while at home.
95% think that students sticking to their normal timetable is the right decision and 90% stated that they are happy with every lesson being taught over a live Google Meet.
Here's some of the lovely things our parents had to say:
"I think the remote education that tanfield is providing is very good. The Year 7 Head of Year Mr Smith has been an amazing support when myself or my child have need him. I could not praise him enough."
"It is excellent."
"Much better this time, I like the fact my son is engaging in live lessons with all of his teachers, seeing and/or hearing them makes all the difference as there are clear expectations. I appreciate the amount of time and effort that has gone into making this remote learning a success and allowing my son to continue learning whilst having some kind of normality Mon-Fri. Thank you!"
"Think you are doing a great job in a difficult time and knowing the importance of a child’s education."
"Tanfield is doing an amazing job at keeping the kids up to date with their education and we are extremely thankful for that."
"Excellent, head of year checks in all the time with me."
"Thank you for all of your hard work you help with your students."
"Both heads of year have been fantastic with my children, any problems or concerns have been sorted straight away! Thank you!"
"The school has gone above and beyond and I feel the education standards that are being kept are above other schools in the area."
"I am very happy with the online learning. My child has managed very well with everything. The school has been very supportive and helpful."
"Outstanding support from the school to ensure my daughter is prepared for her GCSEs this year. The daily incentives to encourage pupils to attend all lessons is a great idea too."
"Couldnt be happier!"
"I am happy with the remote learning and the work the school has done to make sure pupils are engaged in their studies which is particularly important for my son in his final year. Well done Tanfield."
"My child does better at home than at school as there is no distractions"
"Well done for providing the online learning which follows the normal timetable, this is so much better than just providing work for pupils to complete like so many other schools are offering."
"Fantastic engagement from the school to ensure Jayden is getting the learning he needs."
"My child seems to be learning more at home due to fewer distractions."
"You are all doing an amazing job. My children are not missing out on any education in my opinion. Thank you Tanfield School."
"The live lessons are a fantastic way to engage the children and from what I have observed, believe the quality of the teaching has been very good so far!"
