In the event of an academy closure or prolonged student absence, the academy is committed to providing continuity of education for its students and will do so through a process of remote (online) learning. Students will continue their curriculum primarily through Google Classroom, with a small number of subjects using other secure platforms.

Remote education provision
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
Where a class, group or a small number of students need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require students to remain at home, we are committed to providing continuity of education remotely. Where students are not physically unwell with coronavirus (COVID-19) but who are at home as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19) they should engage fully in remote learning.
Our remote learning plan has been developed with our students and their families in mind and in conjunction with the guidance provided by the Department for Education. We believe that this strategy will work best for the children at our academy. Students will access the majority of their lesson resources via an online platform, Google Classroom, with a small number of subjects using other platforms (Tassomai, Hegarty Maths).

Principles of teaching in remote education
- Teachers set assignments so that students have meaningful and ambitious work each day in the full range of subjects in their normal curriculum
- Teachers provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher through Google Classroom
- Teachers adapt teaching in response to questions or assessments
- Students have access to a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject
- Students have access to high-quality online and offline resources and teaching videos and that are linked to the academy’s curriculum
- Students have access to online tools that allow interaction, assessment and feedback
