Whilst we have already distributed a great deal of information regarding the online educational provision at Meoncross School, we wanted to bring all these details together in one document, to make it easier for everyone to find relevant information and also to provide any updates in what is for everyone, a fast-moving and ever changing situation.
We know that nothing can replace ‘physical’ school, but we are confident that our online provision will not only help to mitigate the impact of the current lockdown on our children, but also enable them to continue to make academic progress; and also help us support their emotional and social wellbeing.
As a Cognita school, we are extremely fortunate to be part of a closely interconnected family of 40 UK and 38 international schools. This means that we can rely on the financial stability of a global organisation. We are able to draw upon a wealth of educational expertise, knowledge and resources from the Cognita’s central team and also from over 4,500 teacher colleagues within our schools.
In terms of learning technology, Meoncross School is in an enviable position having only very recently received a complete IT refresh from Cognita. Furthermore, our teachers have been able to draw on the experience of our colleagues in other Cognita schools in Asia and elsewhere who have been utilising online learning for several months. This has allowed Meoncross staff to quickly implement effective online teaching and learning strategies and to rapidly transition pupils to the new online learning environment.
