Virtual Webber Classrooms

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, home learning has once again become the norm after a nationwide lockdown was announced earlier this month.

Here at The Webber Independent School we want to ensure our pupils continue to receive the exceptional level of education they are accustomed to as well as the day to day pastoral and wellbeing support from their teachers and peers.

That's why all our staff continue to deliver enriching timetables whilst ensuring our pupils enjoy engaging lessons. Our pupils learning has not been put on hold, they continue to progress, impress and excel.

It is important to us that our Webber Families feel fully supported during this difficult time. Parent`s Evenings, termly reports, parent forums and school committees all continue virtually, our teachers also send out weekly update emails on each pupil keeping parents up to date with the progress of their child. 

But it`s not all about online learning at The Webber Independent, we want to keep things fresh and fun to help keep spirits high. That`s why we have continued with fun family challenges, charity fundraising and themed learning weeks. 

The wellbeing of our pupils is paramount and we provide virtual break out areas where our pupils can discuss work and socialise in smaller groups. This gives them a break from learning and allows them to connect with their peers in a relaxed atmosphere. Our pastoral team also hold drop in sessions where our pupils can discuss any problems they may be experiencing with their online learning or mental health and wellbeing. 

We are aware that many other schools in the area are not providing the same level of education they were before the lockdown. But rest assured The Webber continues to strive for excellence not only through our Virtual Webber classrooms but also through the help and support we offer our Webber Families.

Although the majority of our children have moved to online learning, we are also very proud to support 20 critical worker families. Our teachers and support staff are working hard to keep things as normal as possible for all our pupils, whilst ensuring everyone stays safe.

All our pupils have adapted to our Virtual Webber Classrooms extraordinarily well and we have welcomed 24 new starters who felt they had previously been let down by online learning.

We hope to welcome all our student back to school very soon but, in the meantime, will continue to provide the best online education we possibly can. We actively work with our pupils and parents to overcome any concerns they may have ensuring each child continues on their own learning journey to success.  

But don’t just take our word for it, read below what some of our pupils and parents think of the Virtual Webber Experience.
