Webinars to Support Parents
To provide additional support during the period of online learning, Cognita will be running a series of themed webinars featuring experts from within our family of schools. Each webinar will include a 15 minute presentation followed by a short online Q&A session.
We would like to invite you to attend our first webinar on Moving into a world of online learning, which will provide tips and advice on the transition to online learning for students. Simon Camby, Cognita’s Group Education Director, will be joined by Siobhan McGrath, Principal of Southbank International School Kensington and Kara Dowson, Head of School at Akeley Wood Junior near Milton Keynes.

General Contact Details
Please be assured that staff are contactable each day during term time and are available to support pupils through their Online Teaching and Learning Programme. Please do contact your child’s teacher if you have any general queries.
Please bear in mind that during the working day, staff are involved in preparing materials for future learning in addition to responding to work that has been submitted by the children, and that many face the challenges of having families at home to care for. Nonetheless, staff will try to respond to you as promptly as they are able. Staff will not respond to emails after 5 pm during the working week and emails received over the weekend will be responded to on the next working day.
