Covid-19/Coronavirus update

First of all, we hope you and your family are keeping safe and healthy at this unprecedented time.

Due to the Covid-19/Coronavirus situation, The Gower School has closed its doors while we await further advice from the government. Our Primary School site is completely closed. At our North Road sites, an amazing team of onsite staff are looking after the children of key workers from our setting and other settings.

As soon as it became clear that our lessons could not continue in the classroom, we began working to ensure your child’s education would experience as little disruption as possible.

The learning continues online…

This term, our teachers have put together remote learning packs. These can be accessed through our new Google Classroom, where children will also be able to submit their homework.

Years One to Six have a fairly full timetable of live taught lessons and activities throughout each day. In addition, each child is scheduled for a regular 1:1 with their teacher. This is a chance for your child to ask questions, get extra help or share any work that they have completed.

Reception children have daily specialist group activities online, taught live, as well as three weekly individual sessions with the class teacher.

Our nursery children are offered a range of optional online specialist taught activities to join daily, such as music, singing, ballet, fitness, story time and yoga.

It seems likely that UK schools will be closed for part, if not all, of the summer term. As we face this period of uncertainty together, The Gower School remains committed to providing a broad and rewarding education. We look forward to building on the children’s love for learning over the next term.
