During a session at Parch Hill
To ensure stability, sessions are taught by the same teachers each week, this allows students to create friendships and professional relationships with their peers and teachers. Students are provided with a new learning booklet each week, which concentrate or certain topics and methods. Throughout the session, the teachers guide students through the concepts and assist them in fully understanding the method. Once prepared, students complete the booklets independently, with assistance from teachers if needed, which ensures that they secure a comprehensive understanding of the topic.
After a session at Parch Hill
On a weekly basis, students are expected to practice the concepts taught in their lesson through the Parch Hill Online Learning Portal. Although our teaching methods are traditional, we understand that some children find working interactively on a computer more beneficial, which is why we allow students to use both interactive and traditional methods of learning. Home-Learning consolidates the work which they have learnt in class, and we see huge differences in students who take advantage of this platform.
All students sit a Unit Assessment every 8 weeks in complete exam conditions, not only does this allow teachers and parents to gain insight in a student’s development, it is also important to become comfortable with the examination environment - which many children find nerve-wracking. As well as this, parents receive full reports from the student’s teacher every unit, to show what needs further improvement, and what may need slightly more work. Don’t worry- you won’t be left alone, our teachers are here to guide parents on how to improve grades , recommend areas of concentration and provide extra resources.
Rewarding Hard Work
As it is only fair to reward our hard-workers, our PACE Reward System ensures that students get recognition for their Punctuality, Attitude, Concentration, and Effort in every class. Students receive PACE cards, which can be equal to either 1, 2, 3, or 4 credits, depending on which attributes they have shown throughout their session. Students can then collect their cards and swap them for big or small prizes when they have collect enough credits for their desired prize.
