Ewell Castle Senior School Remote Learning

Our dedicated and experienced staff continue to deliver high quality learning for all our Senior School pupils.  Pupils and students follow their usual School timetable with lessons delivered via Microsoft Teams.  Every lesson includes a live interactive element, although for some of the lesson pupils are expected to work independently and then submit their work.  Homework continues to be set and uploaded on Satchel One/Show My Homework.

Whilst we would of course prefer to be in School, our expert staff continue to ensure that online lessons are engaging and interactive.  Lessons can include live teaching, pre-recorded tutorials, feedback sessions, quizzes, group tasks, PowerPoint presentations and face-to-face video conferencing. 

 

Wellbeing

Our Pastoral Team which includes the School Counsellor, ELSA, and School Chaplin, provide wellbeing and pastoral support to all our pupils.  Their various initiatives and channels of support help to ensure that pupil personal wellbeing is not being negatively impacted.  All Senior School pupils have informal online Form time once a week so friends can see each-other and their Form Teacher, and there is also a weekly year group assembly delivered by their Head of Year, usually focussing on a particular theme.  These year group assemblies have included stretch and flow yoga, mindfulness, and cookery lessons.  Additionally, the three Heads of House each deliver a pre-recorded assembly once every half-term which are informative as well as fun and there are ad-hoc assemblies by the Principal and or the Deputy Heads Academic and Pastoral.  During Children’s Mental Health Week, members of the Pastoral Team curated helpful materials as well as assemblies and video presentations for pupils and their families.

 

Sport

Our PE and Games staff continue to provide weekly Games lessons for pupils, because we want to ensure our pupils not only keep up with their academic studies but that they enjoy positive mental and physical health.
