From 1 year old to Matric, students continue their learning during the temporary closure of the school. Reddam House Bedfordview is running a virtual school to ensure that all students make progress as if the school were in full operation.
The Reddam House Bedfordview Virtual School experience retains two core elements that we believe make us an outstanding school. Firstly, the live student-teacher interaction, which is fundamental to all students making progress and achieving their full potential. Students gain so much from the direct interaction with their classmates and passionate teachers. The second core element is the desire to maintain our personalised learning approach that treats every student as an individual and supports them pastorally and academically at all times.
We believe that the digital environment will develop independent learning and 21st Century skills in all students.
Education is certainly changing and everyone at Reddam House Bedfordview is keen to be changing with it. We’re all open for learning.
HOW IT WORKS
At Reddam House Bedfordview, the Virtual School programme will mirror the actual school day as closely as possible, including school timings.
FOR EARLY LEARNERS (STAGE 1 – 5)
FOR JUNIOR PREPARATORY STUDENTS (GRADE 1 - 3)
FOR SENIOR PREPARATORY STUDENTS (GRADE 4 - 7)
All students will follow their normal school timetable and will join the virtual class on the BlueJeans conferencing platform. Your child’s subject teacher will send them a BlueJeans ID to join each class. Students will have to log in at the start time of every lesson to take register and start the lesson. Work will then be explained and given on Google classroom. Lessons will take different formats to make sure that students stay engaged. Students will have breaks as normal and teachers will be available throughout the day for academic and emotional support.
For religious and moral studies on Thursday students will be sent a link for Jewish studies with Mrs Glixman, moral studies with relevant grade teachers and a Chapel session.
FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS (Grade 8 - 12)
The intended outcome is that the curriculum is at the forefront of the work and, as far as possible, student progress should not be negatively impacted. Work will be shared via Google Classroom and will involve online lessons via Google Hangouts/Meet conferencing.
Daily timetable for College Students
Work set will reflect the length of the lesson and wherever possible, reflect the normal curriculum objectives. Learning activities may however differ from those in a classroom setting.
Homework during remote learning will complement the lesson, just as with normal school.
It is the student’s responsibility to complete the work or communicate to their teacher why it is not completed. Teachers will ensure that by the end of the day, all student queries have been dealt with in an appropriate manner.
Should you have any technical difficulties in accessing Google Classroom or any of the online applications being used, your class teacher will be available online or he/she will be able to escalate your query to our IT Managers for support. If there are any updates to these arrangements, we will advise you immediately. We ask for your support at this time as we all work together through these exceptional circumstances.
READY FOR SCHOOL?
Find somewhere comfortable, peaceful and quiet to do your work.
Make sure you have your laptop/tablet, your pencil case and paper.
Request the structure and break-times at the start of the lesson.
You can always message a question to your teacher - just like putting your hand up in class.

I’m very happy with how the School has managed this situation and kept parents up to date.
Quick note to say well done on the seamless transition to the online learning platforms. Kids have been really diligent and enjoying the day.
Just a note to say thank you to the Head and the team to what appears to be a seamless migration to an e-learning environment.
I congratulate our School for being so proactive about this situation… clear planning ahead has paid off.
Well done Reddam House Bedfordview. Very impressive and forward thinking and so proactive.
