Learning at home

The Academy is currently closed to all students with the exception of vulnerable children and the children of key workers, so most of our students will need to continue their studies from home.

A video tutorial to show you how to access your live learning on Microsoft Teams is available by accessing this video –  Tutorial for accessing Microsoft Teams

Teachers will deliver ‘live teaching’ and your child should follow their timetable as they log in to those lessons.

For those children who do not have access to laptops, please be assured that we are awaiting further devices from the Department for Education. If you require a device, please contact [email protected] who will add you to the waiting list. In the meantime, your child can access their online lessons via any tablet or mobile device using their school log in to Office 365.

We are operating limited support staff on site and our phone lines will only be operational from 8am until 3pm. Please email [email protected] if you require any assistance in the first instance.

We will continue to communicate with you regularly over the coming weeks and once again thank you for your ongoing support and commitment during these unprecedented times and look forward to welcoming all year groups back when it is safe to do so.

Keeping fit at home

Daily physical activity is very important to help keep a healthy mind and body during this difficult lockdown period.  The PE Department have put together a wide choice of online fitness workouts for you to try at home – give yourself a challenge and stay healthy! Open this powerpoint file as a slideshow, and click on the pictures to link to each workout:

Next half term

As we move forward with our learning journey this year during these uncertain times, we are planning for next half term.  Whilst we will continue to wait for announcements from the Government in terms of the return of students to the Academy, we are planning to distribute the learning packs to home addresses 11th and 12th February 2021 by members of staff.  A letter confirming delivery will be posted through your door with the pack left safely on your doorstep in a waterproof bag.  It is important that your contact details are up to date with us, therefore if you have recently moved address or changed your contact number please email [email protected]  and we will update our records.    We believe that all students should now have the necessary equipment to be able to access online learning and live lessons.  If you have any IT technical issues and require devices or support, please email [email protected] who will look into this for you.   Thank you once again for your continued support.

Please also note that the learning packs your child is currently using will be expected to be brought back into school, when students return. Please ensure that all work booklets are being fully completed during lesson time and as home learning.
