Lynn education centre recognised for efforts during pandemic
The Lynn branch of an education franchise has been recognised for its efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
The head office of Kip McGrath Education Centres has given an award to the Norfolk Street centre for continuing to provide lessons throughout.
The congratulates Paul and Heather Rugg - the couple who run the centre - for their work, which included delivering 1,295 lessons in the 12 months from March 2020.
It says: "The effort made by yourself has been invaluable to the students and families in your local community, and will leave a lasting legacy on their education and lives."
The Lynn centre closed and taught online from home during the first lockdown. It reopened in June last year for learners who met specific criteria, with the rest remaining online.
Heather was very pleased with the award and its wording, and was keen to acknowledge everybody's efforts
She said: "We'd like to thank all our families and our staff for helping us to follow restrictions.
"We are now open for any students who prefer to attend lessons in our Norfolk Street centre, but over 40 per cent are still choosing the convenience of face-to-face online lessons.
"We love the mix of online and in-centre teaching, which allows us to work with a greater number of students, while maintaining social distancing."
The centre will be working throughout August for families who feel their children would benefit from some extra support. All lessons are planned and delivered by fully qualified, experienced teachers.
Heather said: "Our aim is for students (from Year 2 to GCSE) to make a full year's progress in their ten to 12 lessons, and many exceed this."
