With UK schools closed once again, Fyling Hall School will continue to offer a high quality education through virtual learning. Building on the infrastructure we put in place when the UK Government closed schools in March 2020, our plan is to teach to the pupils’ timetable that is in the front if their school planner. Mr Allen, Headmaster, added
Whilst it is not ideal to be out of school for the whole half term I am confident we will be able to provide a very interactive experience to ensure your child continues with their education. It is important we work closely together and so we will make sure you as parents have weekly contact with your child’s form Tutor to monitor progress.
When we get further information about the format of assessment for the exam classes I will share this with you. It is crucial the exam classes engage with the online learning because inevitably there to be some form of assessment later in the year.
Back in March, we listened to your feedback from our first week of virtual learning and developed the following booklet summarises the key developments of our offering, and will help you navigate through what is a new experience for us all. Our core aim was to remove the feeling of isolation pupils may be having, by making them feel supported, in as interactive an environment as possible.

What if my child is having difficulty using Teams?
Should your child encounter any problems using “Teams” or have any questions, they should send a message through the Tutor Group Team “Help” channel. If for any reason they are unable to do this, then they can email their Tutor through the Outlook app.
