Remote/Home Learning

Dear parents/carers

The points below cover our expectations for students during the current period of remote learning and advice on how you can support them:

STUDENTS:

  • Check Milk and Showbie/Google Classroom every day for any updates/announcements from your teachers.
  • Stick broadly to your normal academy timetable/class times where possible, to provide some structure and spread work out, although we know that this will not always be possible for a wide variety of reasons.
  • Complete any work set by class teachers, to a high standard, within the time period indicated by the teachers.
  • Ask questions if you do not understand or have any difficulties, during the academy day.
  • Make use of online resources from Student Bulletin 1 if you cannot access your set lesson.  Student Bulletins are available from the tab to the side.
  • Complete any additional projects/extension activities set by your teachers if you cannot access online classwork or have spare time.
  • Make use of online resources if you cannot access your lesson for revision & independent study where you can.
  • Year 9 - Year 13: only use your iPad for yourself, do not share iPads or codes. Remember to wipe your iPad screen and keep it clean.
  • Read books/listen to audio books for pleasure. Years 7 and 8 students complete your reading and quizzing on Accelerated Reader.
  • Follow guidelines about being safe online.
  • Please use our Technical Support page for enquiries including iPads/ICT.
  • Keep yourself well and stay healthy and follow hygiene advice to help to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

 

PARENTS/CARERS:

  • Encourage students to try to follow their normal timetable where possible, to provide some structure and spread work out, although we know that this will not always be possible for a wide variety of reasons.
  • Codes for Showbie & Google Classroom can be accessed by emailing Form Tutors.
  • Encourage students to try and to complete any online work to the best of their abilities, where possible, depending upon home circumstances.
  • Additional work can be found on the links on Student Bulletin 1 (accessed on the tab to the side).
  • Encourage students to read books/listen to audio books for pleasure.
  • Encourage them to balance schoolwork with other creative/physical activities to keep themselves alert and engaged - we will post ideas on Twitter.
  • Encourage students to keep their communication with staff to during the academy day.
  • Please use our Technical Support page for enquiries including iPads/ICT.
