The Elliot Foundation is a charitable multi-academy trust specialising in primary academies. We are building a thriving community of schools including converter and sponsored primary academies that succeed on behalf of their children. We bring an understanding of the unique role of successful primary education as a pre- requisite for even greater success at secondary school level. We will maintain a group of exceptional primary academies that is uncompromising in its search for excellence and in its commitment to searching for and sharing emerging best practice across its primary academy chain.
When selecting pedagogical approaches for children unable to attend school in person teachers and school leaders should not feel pressured by parents into simply hosting 4 hours of live teaching per day
Teachers know how to use the most effective approach for intended learning outcomes. Live teaching and live bothway video are simply some of the tools at your disposal and should be used to suit the content and the pupils. Quality not quantity is key to our approach.
It has been a hectic first two weeks of term and we've been working hard to advance our virtual school to meet the needs of children, address the expectations of parents and not break our staff through overwork or expose them or children to unnecessary risk...
There has been pressure to increase the amount of "Live teaching" from parents, from children from schools themselves. But as you have no doubt seen on social media live bothway video with children brings with it lots of risks. So we've taken a little time to think...
Today we posted our, "Live teaching statement" on our website https://t.co/zROKKOa9FO which distinguishes between "live teaching" and "live bothway video" both of which are elements of our virtual school
@ShirestoneAcad have received some heart warming feedback from a parent today 🌟This is such a reminder of the hard work and efforts that all the staff and school are currently putting in to ensure that all our children's education thrives and continues in lockdown 👏 #thankyoupic.twitter.com/4SpBVHMKGW
