Remote Learning & Home Learning guidance
Many parents and carers will be aware that Google Classroom is our online platform which we used to provide access to our curricula and resources over the lock down period; should a student need to self-isolate in line with COVID-19 government guidance, or the Academy needs to close fully or to partial year groups, this will be the provision we will use.
Google Classroom is also now going to be used for home learning (homework) to ensure that students are familiar with its’ use. If your child is in school, they will continue with their regular in-school work and should only complete home learning as and when it is set by their teachers.
A vital part of pupils’ education is taking the initiative to support their learning at home through home learning. Home learning is an activity which pupils are asked to do outside school time, either on their own or with parents or carers. The expectation is that home learning will be set and needs to be completed if your child is asked, or needs to self-isolate and not showing symptoms.
The Purpose of Home learning:
The main reasons for setting home learning are:
To give learners the opportunity to work on challenging activities to deepen concepts relevant to the curriculum.
To give learners an extended opportunity to develop their organisational and time management skills, good study habits and self-discipline.
To give learners the opportunity to investigate on their own.
To involve parents & carers in the educational development of their child.
How is home learning set at CAN?
From Monday 2nd November 2020 we will be setting all home learning via Google classrooms. We have not set home learning within the first term back, to allow students to regain habits and routines in school. Full details of their timetables can be found here: Home Learning Timetables
Your child will receive training in lessons on how to access their home learning and how to upload their work on completion
