Online learning and return to school day timings throughout the week beginning 8 March

Please see the letter sent home to families here.

Our remote learning strategy is published

So that pupils and their parents know what to expect from the school if they need to self-isolate, or where national or local restrictions require them to remain at home, we are publishing information about our remote education provision on our website.

Please spend a few minutes reading our remote learning strategy.

At  Heron Hall Academy our aim is to ensure:

•    All children have access to the internet when this becomes more freely available through government initiatives.

•    All families have at least one device for home learning and where possible all children have their own device.

•    Our online opportunities provide a learning experience that is appealing and that delivers successful learning outcomes.

We welcome feedback at all times from our families about how we can improve what we are doing.

You can find out more here.

Home learning January updates

We have put in place arrangements for students to be able to continue their learning during the coronavirus outbreak and new national lockdown. You should be able to find all the information you need on this page. If not, please do not hesitate to call the school.

Information for parents about remote education.

So that pupils and their parents know what to expect from their school if they need to self-isolate, or where national or local restrictions require them to remain at home, the government has asked schools to publish information about their remote education provision on their websites by 25 January 2021. You can find our information here.

Message from our Headteacher:

“It has been fantastic to see so many students accessing their learning from home.  Teachers are live streaming their lessons so your child should follow their normal timetable (Week A currently) and access their live lesson on their Google Classroom Meets. Thank you for your support.”  Arthur Barzey, Headteacher.

New letters home about online learning:

Remote learning at Heron Hall Academy

Students need to follow their usual timetable to access their live-streamed Google Meet lessons on the periods they would normally have. For example, if they were to have English period 1 on a Wednesday, they would simply go onto their Google Classroom at 9am and click on their Google Meet link and follow the instructions and learning from their teacher.

In order to simplify the timings of the school day we will now be running lessons at the times set out in the letter sent to families.

You can read the letter here.

On Thursdays there will be a form tutor time from 3.00 –3.30pm and your child’s tutor will add them to this class.

Science students also have access to SENECA.

The Oak National Academy was set up by the government to provide extra lessons through video in a broad range of subjects, including maths, English, art and languages. You can click on the link below to see what is available in which year group.
