Code of Conduct for Learning Online

At school we have systems and routines in place to ensure that pupils learn and progress. To acheive this, we make sure of four things:

1. The routine is ready (school starts on time, break times, lunch times, all children are back on time, all children in class on time),

2. The children are ready (with uniform, equipment and attitude, good beahviour)

3. The environment is ready (the class are behaving, following rules, children are focussed, distractions are removed, learning atmosphere in class)

4. The teacher is ready (with high quality lessons)

Three of  the four ingredients are now in your hands. Please ensure that your child:

1. Is in a regular routine (bed time, waking up, breakfast, lunch, knows when lessons start, reads regularly, praying, exercise, fun time etc)

2. Is ready for learning (in school jumper, chromebook charged, headphones on, mics muted, pencil and papers ready, school work completed)

3. Is in a  good environment ( a fixed place where they can learn comfortably, chair, desk, no distractions)

By ensuring these 3 things, you as parents can help your child make excellent learning insha’Allah.

Praying for your success! smile
