11.05.2020 Online Learning at Llanwern

Dear all

I hope that this email finds you and your family well.

I want to use this communication to let you know what you can expect from Llanwern High School staff in terms of online learning.  However, before I go on to detail this, I need to make sure that you know that our number one priority is your child’s wellbeing.  As a parent myself, I recognise that the most important thing at this unsettling time is to ensure that your children feel happy, reassured and secure and, sometimes, completing school work has to take a back seat.

Having said the above, we have no set date for a return to school and, even when that date is decided by Welsh Government, the return will be very different and definitely not ‘business as usual’.  In short, online learning is here to stay and we want to do everything we can to make sure that you and your child are supported to access work set on Google Classrooms.

What you can expect from teaching staff:

  • Weekly work from each subject

  • An accompanying short video explanation to the activity, as well as written instructions

  • Regular responses to messages/questions posted by pupils

  • Feedback to work submitted


What you can expect from pastoral staff (Heads of Year and Tutors):

  • A weekly video assembly on the Head of Year Classroom and Pupil of the Week awards

  • Weekly topical news articles to read and ‘discuss’ in tutor group Classrooms


Over the next week, we are going to prioritise Years 10 and 12 in terms of home communication and, if you are a parent of a child in one of these year groups, you should expect a phone call from their tutor or Head of Year.  Please can I make it very clear that this is a support phone call; we are interested in what issues you might have had or continue to have and how we can help you. Although we have produced help videos and posted then on our Facebook page and website, sometimes it helps to hear someone’s voice who can help answer your specific questions or refer you to someone who can.


Many thanks for your time – please know that you have our very best wishes and full support during this difficult time.

Sian Smith

Deputy Headteacher
