Staggered Return of Students and Remote Learning

Important update from Yewlands Academy - 31/12/2020

The government announced yesterday afternoon that the staggered return of secondary school pupils in England will be delayed by one week. Yewlands will now be using a teacher training day on Monday 4th January to support remote lesson and mass testing planning. Only vulnerable/critical worker children will return to Yewlands on Tuesday 5th January.

Please note that all students are therefore expected to access remote learning on Microsoft Teams from Tuesday January 5th (period 1: 9.05am-10.45am, period 2: 11.00am – 12.40pm, period 3: 1.10pm – 2.50pm). Year 11 students are to return to Yewlands on Monday 11th January but will attend the Academy W.C. 4th January for any days they have external vocational exams. All other students will return to the Academy on Monday 18th January.

The schedule for the collection of laptops on Monday 4th January has now changed to include students in Year 11. Laptop collection and Teams support will be available on the 4th January at the following times in the Academy: Y11: 9 am – 10.30am, Y7: 10.30 am -11.30 am, Y8: 11.30 am – 12.30pm, Y9: 12.30pm – 1.30pm, Y10: 1.30pm – 2.30pm.

If you require a laptop loan, need support with using Microsoft Teams to access remote learning or you feel your child qualifies for the critical worker criteria and you wish for them to attend school from Tuesday 5th January, please contact learningsupport@yewlandsacademy.org.

Further guidance regarding accessing remote learning, including a video guide, is available on the Academy website at www.yewlandsacademy.org/parents/remote_learning
