We are a Catholic Foundation School which means that our school grew out of the vision of the Ratisbonne brothers in 1862. Although our Founders came from a Catholic faith, their focus for Sion students was to ensure that all children of all faiths (and none) would proactively learn to live in harmony with one another through understanding and dialogue.
Since the beginning of the early lockdown period, we were able to offer all our students remote learning which has been via a variety of different platforms.
In the Junior School, we use SeeSaw and Tapestry, and in the Senior School we use Microsoft Teams as a pastoral platform and Google Classroom for teaching. All platforms enabled us to maximise the learning in this period with a mix of collaborative work and online resources.
These resources are in place should the occasion arise and we are easily able to adopt our online teaching whenever the situation occurs. The experience has enabled teaching staff to develop online learning as a useful pedagogic tool.
