Remote Education

Remote Learning

Engagement and routine are at the core of learning – therefore all lessons during any period of remote learning are taught live following the normal school timetable. 

Where this can’t happen, due to unforeseen staffing issues or limitations of practical subjects, work will be posted to Microsoft 365 with instructions for work completion (though we aim to have a teacher present during this time to support students with any work set).

Parental/carer support

Remote learning can be as challenging for parents and carers as for students.

If you have questions that are not answered in this information document or guide, please do not hesitate to email the academy at [email protected]

If students are still struggling to access the work, they can email their classroom teacher directly. If this does not solve the problem, students should email their head of year who will be able to help.

Reducing the stress of online notifications

One of the challenges in this digital age is managing the level of online communications; both sending out and receiving them. We will endeavour to only contact your child via the live lessons and Microsoft 365.

Whilst it is important that your child engages fully in their lessons online and completes work, it is equally important for the school day to come to an end and for them to have some down time.

Increasing data allowances on mobile devices to support remote learning

There is a scheme that offers temporary increases to data allowances for mobile phone users on certain networks. This is so that children and young people who are facing hardship can access remote education if their face-to-face education is disrupted.

The academy can request mobile data increases for children and young people who:

  • do not have fixed broadband at home
  • cannot afford additional data for their devices
  • are experiencing disruption to their face-to-face education
