Your child will have access to remote learning starting from Wednesday 6th January.

Thank you Oakwood Academy 


Dear Parents & Carers,

As a school we have made available remote learning packs for all classes. These are for pupils that are currently shielding / isolating or in the event of another school closure.

Our Aim:-

• Establish measures that will reduce the effects of being off school and try to minimize missed work across various subjects / qualifications in order to give pupils the best chance to show their full potential when they return to school

• Support pupils physical and social development, and mental wellbeing during school closure
What is the plan for remote learning?

• We would like pupils to engage in daily online lessons via zoom (see timetable below). This is an opportunity to address basic skills in each subject area and support pupils wellbeing.

• We would also like pupils to complete the ‘home learning menu’s’ with parents and carers at home. These menu tasks are planned to address curriculum content this year and support learning missed in school

Where can I find the ‘home learning menu’ for my child?

• All pupils have been issued with a remote learning book which has a paper copy of the home learning.

Session 1 – 10:00am until 11:00am

Session 2 – 11:00am until 11:40pm

Session 3 – 11:40pm until 12:20pm

Please can we remind all parents/carers that if you, your child or other household member are self-isolating and awaiting test results that you advise school of the result before sending your child back into school. We have had a number of pupils return to school when we are awaiting confirmation or test results this means we are unable to let your child back into their bubble until we are able to confirm the test result.

As always the safety of our staff and pupils is paramount and your support with this is greatly appreciated.
