Dear Parents/Carers

 

I hope that you and all your family are well and in good health.

 

I would like to explain our plans for remote learning for students who have to self-isolate, or where local or national restrictions mean that students need to stay at home.

Our remote learning plan:

 

  • Students will follow their normal timetable with five lessons a day.
  • All lessons are a combination of live lessons (Google meet), google classroom (shared resources) and hard copies (sent home by post).
  • All live lessons are recorded for future use and reference and for safeguarding. 
  • All subjects are following the programme of study.
  • Students will receive an invite link by email to access the live lessons. The students will only have to click on the link to join the live lessons at the time indicated in their school timetable.
  • All work completed will be assessed using different methods and tools depending on the subjects. These range from emails, written feedback, video and voice recording.
  • All students will receive at least two phone calls a day during AM and PM registration. This to make sure that students are present and ready to engage in learning. Also, to offer any type of support to students and parents.

 

To access live lessons

 

Students will need a computer and internet connection to be able to access the live lessons and the google classroom which contain all the resources sent by the teachers. The academy has been working really hard to make sure all students have access to the required equipment. 

 

What we expect from your child

 

It’s important that your child engages with home learning and students are expected to stick to their timetable.

 

What you can do to help

 

First of all thank you so much for all the support that you have given to us at this challenging time. I would be really grateful if you would continue to play an active role in your child’s learning by asking them about their day and what work they have done.

Our top tips:

  • Try to encourage your child to be ready and dressed for the start of the school day, and to keep to their timetable 
  • Distinguish between weekdays and weekends, and make it clear when the school day is over, to separate home and school life
  • Plan breaks and exercise into the day to help keep your child active

 

Please keep in touch with us and do let us know if we can give you any further support. We know and understand that remote working is not an easy task and we appreciate all your efforts.

Take care and keep safe

Yours faithfully,

Younes Henini
