Positive Remote Learning Messages

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and send a big thank you to you and all the Horizon team, especially the teachers. I was concerned about my children missing a big part of the curriculum due to the impact of coronavirus and would have taken the risk of bringing them to school as a vulnerable parent rather than missing their learning .

However, when you switched into remote learning, honestly I wasn't expecting that much. I can see a huge effort is putting on in order to keep the learning process as flexible as it could be to suit all parents' circumstances and also as effective as it should be.

We are lucky as this opportunity Is not granted to all schools so thank you again and good continuation with your hard work."

"I congratulate all of you for all the effort put into online schooling. All the extras available for us to access and carry on from home, that’s super impressive. Today was a great success and I can already see the difference it makes for my girl. Thank you all!

I just wanted to send a message in to say! Thank you for the effort being put into the online and live! Yes there will be technical hiccups but there will be with anything! For Amy it is really working and working well. She knows what she needs to do and get done and is doing so mostly independently, only asking for help when tech issues arise! So thank you again! Hope you have a reasonably restful weekend."

I would like to express my huge gratitude for your invaluable support and to thank all the Horizon Academy team especially the teachers who are working tirelessly in order to keep the learning process going smoothly during this hard period. In fact, I'm really happy that my kids are not missing their learning while they are staying home safely.

Thank you very much and keep up the hard work!

I know many parents are indeed very grateful for the work and effort you have put in to keep the kids learning! You are doing an amazing job in the circumstances and I'm really thankful for that. We can keep going and have some normality and stability only because you put that effort in, so thank you! 

In comparison with earlier lockdown, it really makes the world of difference having live classes. 

Wishing you all the best! Stay safe and well.

Olivia is very engaged and found online learning very informative, useful and fun way to stay on track. 

The teachers are great, they are so patient and helpful.

I wanted to just reach out and let you know how pleased and grateful I am for the remote learning that you have put into place at Horizon.

The online teaching that Mia is receiving is outstanding – as a working parent (it doesn’t matter if I wasn’t) I really appreciate that I can continue with my working day and I am confident that Mia will continue to learn and engage. Mr O’Connor is completely amazing with the children, you can see his dedication to teaching – it is amazing to see how he can get the children to concentrate.

You have gone way beyond my expectations with the remote learning, as a parent I would want the same level of teaching that you would find in the classroom during covid restrictions, which I am positive Mia is receiving. I am confident that if schools do return on the 8th March and if you do have to close the ‘bubble’ you will automatically switch to remote learning and the same standard will be taught.

The communication is really informative and up to date, along with offers of additional support including any resources our children will need.

We are looking forwards to having a ‘well being’ day tomorrow – I think you could recognise that even though the live remote is amazing you could see the children need a bit of fun (along with the parents)

If you could pass my thanks to all your team, a massive thank you to Mr O’Connor,

I hope that you and your team continue to stay safe

Would like to say thank you for all the school doing for Jake during the lockdown. Appreciate all the time that been set from staff members to do interventions with Jake and the online provision. Phonics sessions really helped me as a parent to be able to teach Jake with his writing and reading so I know I am teaching him correctly. I have seen such an improvement   In Jake reading and speech in the last few weeks.
