17 November 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

We are committed to ensuring your child continues with their education during their period of self-isolation.  Whilst we understand that families are facing a lot of challenges with the current COVID crisis, we are also under no illusion of the importance of education in supporting your child both now and in the future.

Please find below your child’s timetable for their period of self-isolation.  Students are expected to undertake the ‘live’ lessons as indicated on their timetable and use the additional time throughout the day to complete homework, revise, etc.  We would appreciate your full support with ensuring your child is ready to learn, undertakes ‘live’ learning with the right attitude and completes any follow up home learning.

Please be aware that whilst your child is undertaking ‘live’ lessons, it is not appropriate for parents or carers to speak to the member of staff teaching at this time.  If you wish to speak to any member of staff, please continue to go through the normal channels and telephone us on 01375 489000. 

Year 11 ‘Live’ Timetable. We are currently on Week 2 and the online learning will start tomorrow Wednesday 18 November 2020, with English at 8.10 am.

Online timetable

Please share the following with your child:

Student expectations of on-line learning:

Ready to Learn

  • Set yourself up in a space that is appropriate for learning e.g. kitchen table, a quiet area of the house.
  • Log on five minutes prior to the start of the lesson.
  • Make sure your name is displayed on screen as it appears on the register.
  • Ensure you are ready for learning (equipment, books, camera switched on).
  • Ensure your backdrop is appropriate for learning and you are dressed appropriately.
  • Only use the chat function in connection with your learning.
  • A reminder that positive behaviour for learning will be awarded and disruptive behaviour will be sanctioned in line with the Academy’s Behaviour Policy – first warning, final warning, removal from lesson.
  • Remember you do not have permission to record the teacher (this is breach of GDPR regulations and against the law).
  • All lessons will be recorded.

 

Live Learning will be conducted through zoom.

  • Be positive about your learning (for example, if you do not understand a concept, ask the teacher to explain in more detail).
  • Be open to this new way of learning.
  • Be kind and respectful to each other and the teacher delivering the lesson.

 

Home Learning

  • Log on to Google Classroom and complete any work that has been set.
  • ‘Turn in’ completed work.
  • If you did not understand any part of the lesson ask for support in your next live lesson.
  • Keep track of due dates

 

We look forward to welcoming our Year 11 students back to the Academy on Tuesday 01 December 2020 at 8.10 am.

 

Kind regards,

Yours sincerely

 

Mrs G McLaughlin
