To support you all during these uncertain times, please see our Home Learning Timetable below. Use the activities embedded in the timetable to support your child’s learning while they self-isolate/are absent.  This resource should be used in conjunction with work directly set by your child’s teacher.

Learning Pathways:

Your child will be in one of three learning streams ‘Pathway One’  ‘Pathway Two’ or ‘Pathway Three’.

Pathway One/Enhanced Provision:

If your child is in Pathway One, they require a lot of additional support with foundation (basic) skills, which are really important in supporting their understanding of the world around them.  If your child is in Pathway One, you child’s teacher and first point of contact will be:

Year 7:  Mrs Smith

If your child’s class teacher is one of the above, please follow the ‘Pathway One’  timetable when choosing work for your child.

Pathway Two  and Pathway Three Provision:

Pupils in Pathways One and Two receive a similar educational diet, which is needs-dependent, and work is differentiated accordingly.

If your child is in Pathway Two, their provision and classroom setup is constructed to support the additional needs associated with their Autism.

If your child is in Pathway Three, their wider special educational needs are met through differentiation and support.

Pathway Two:

If your child is part of the Pathway Two cohort, their class teacher and first point of contact will be:

Year 7: Mrs Martin

Keep them Reading!

Reading Books will be chosen and advised by your child’s class teacher. Please ensure that you contact them so you are clear about your child’s reading level and scheme.

You can also access the Oxford Owl website (where you will find your child’s reading book) here.

E-Safety

As with all things IT- related, please remind your child about online safety and be vigilant for them when they are online.

If you see anything inappropriate, or are targeted  while online, or your child is made to feel unsafe, please report to CEOP. You can access their details here.

Once you contacted CEOP, please inform a Designated Safeguarding Lead.

TEAMS lessons

In the event of a national or local lockdown, all teaching and staff-to-pupil contact will be conducted via TEAMS. In order to keep everyone safe, parents, carers and pupils must adhere to the academy’s Online Learning Policies.

If accessing online teaching via Microsoft TEAMS, please adhere to the academy’s online policies, which can be found here.  Parents and carers of new pupils will be sent information on an individual basis to ensure the necessary agreements are signed and understood.

Pastoral Care

Class teachers will conduct a Wellbeing ‘check-in’ once a week for the class group and/or individual pupils. This can be conducted via TEAMS or telephone. In the event of a national or local lockdown, further information regarding contact arrangements will be sent to parents and carers.

Safe and Well checks for self-isolating pupils and those on long-term absence.

In the event that individual or small groups of pupils may need to self-isolate, you will be contacted on the first day of absence, and then subsequently during the period of isolation or absence by your child’s class teacher, a Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead or a Parent Support Adviser.

Parents are very pleased with the progress their children make. They comment on the excellent progress their children have made in their academic work and personal skills…
