The Virtual School
Your child's learning and wellbeing are our highest priorities. We have taken steps to ensure that your child will continue to have the highest possible standard of education.
To that end, we have created the Virtual School. This uses an online platform to provide daily lessons and resources to your child during closure.
Your children have been shown how to log on to the online platform. Should they forget, a handy user guide has been created here: Student-Virtual-School-Guide.pdf.
Your child will be expected to log on every morning and check their subject folders as per their usual school timetable. All lessons and resources will be available to them to support their completion of the work. All work should be completed in your child's exercise book. Should they run out of room in their books, please provide paper that can then be placed into their exercise book for safe keeping. All students' work will be checked upon returning to the Academy.
In summary, your child's routine should be:
- Login to the Academy online platform (using the Student Virtual School Guide if necessary)
- Using their timetables in their planners, identify the subjects for the day.
- Click on those subjects, then their class, then the work for that date (this will be in the subject of the document)
- Complete the work for all subjects they have on that day.
Should your child complete the work set for them, subject teachers have created revision guides for the full academic year. These are tasks that can be considered homework that will consolidate their learning and help prepare your child for the end of year examinations. These revision guides can be found in the same location as the students' lessons.
Please can we request that only students contact their teachers directly via their Academy email account for any help and support they may need. If parents wish to contact us, please use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Students will be contacted via telephone twice a week by a staff member to discuss any concerns and offer support where possible.
Thank you for your support and co-operation during this challenging time.
