Walbottle Campus staff have come together with a ‘great team approach’ regardless of whether they are working from home or in school according to Director of Support, Tracey Gray.
The whole of the staff team are pulling together with many staff offering to go into the school to teach or support those vulnerable students, or children of key workers still attending. As well as this the business and first aid teams are working on a rota to make sure that meals are provided to those families who are in need of them. It is great to see staff teams all pulling together and understanding that the student’s education is of paramount importance even during uncertain times.
Work for students at home is being provided through work packs and online resources which the teachers have put together and the school is prepared to continue this for as long as they need to. Like many schools across the country pupils from Walbottle have enjoyed starting their morning with Joe Wicks’ PE lesson streamed live on YouTube. This is something which staff and students can take part in and is a fun activity which can have a positive impact keeping staff and students fitness levels high which gives them a good chance of staying healthy.
