Home Learning Programme
Whilst the Academy is closed to help tackle the fight against coronavirus (Covid-19), we have implemented a Home Learning Programme to ensure that students do not miss out on vital education.
The Home Learning Programme consists of:
Logging On & Attendance
Students must login each day to Show My Homework and Firefly portal to access work and resources for subjects timetabled on that day. By logging on, and completing and submitting work, students will gain a mark for their attendance. The Pastoral Team will monitor attendance and keep student son track.
Students have been issued with a Home Learning Timetable and are expected to follow the subjects and times as indicated. During each period, their subject teacher will be available for them to contact via email and will provide subject support. Parents are also welcome to email the teacher during this time to help parents support their child.
All students were issued with a Home Learning Starter Pack which contains extra work to keep students occupied for two weeks. This work provides parents with a backup in the event of students being unable to login to their portals or when students find they have finished their subject tasks earlier than the finish time.
Policies During School Closure
During the period of school closure, schools are having to adapt to students working at home and online. As a result, there are additional annexes to existing policies which cover the new developments in teaching online.
