MHS Update 8-1-2021

Remote Learning turned up to 11!

A very quick blog this week given the lengthy updates of Monday and Tuesday.

Our 'fully live' remote curriculum is up and running with over 360 live sessions taking place yesterday and the same again today. I am pleased to say there have been relatively few technical issues from a school point of view, and aside from many password queries it appears that most students are finding their way to the right places. Massive thanks to the IT Network Team for creating the infrastructure to link all our students and teachers to the right lessons at the right time…I'd like to pretend I know who they did it, but I don't! If you are at home and still having issues of any kind then remember to email network.support@marplehall.stockport.sch.uk

What I do know is that teachers are teaching, students are learning, the students in school are online with their peers, the pastoral team are chasing up 'attendance' and welfare of those students we haven't seen online and the whole staff team is working together to make the most of this less-than-ideal situation.

'Lockdown school' is rubbish compared to the real thing, but this lockdown is a million times better than the first one in terms of education. If students continue to attend in the very high numbers we have seen so far, then there is no reason why learning cannot continue at pace.

There's a long way to go but I could hardly have wished for a stronger start.

Best wishes,

Joe Barker
