All Year Groups

In order to improve our service to you across all years, we would like to know what technology you are using at home to access our online learning (if any). It would be really useful if you could all complete our survey by using the following link:

Student Engagement

In response to staff and student survey results we have decided as an Academy to make some changes based on your feedback to help support your child’s learning at home. The changes will take effect from Monday 11th May. Students will follow a timetable where they will spend 3-4 hours a day completing work on the subjects listed on that day. Teachers will all upload the work the night before to ensure you can start first thing in the morning, if you want too. This will help students plan for their day, and will help you know what work they should be completing. Timetables are listed on the attachment below. Any questions please contact your child’s Head of Year.

Covid-19 school support resources Summary for Parents

In response to the unprecedented closure of schools to most pupils, the EEF has produced a set of resources for parents to support effective home learning. These are all based on the evidence-based recommendations in the EEF’s guidance reports. These resources outline straightforward ways in which you can identify learning opportunities in everyday routines and build them into your home life. There is also guidance for supporting your child’s behavioural, emotional and social needs at this time. You can access these resources by clicking below.
