Dear Parent/Guardian

Thanks you to all the parents and students who are continuing to follow the government guidance so closely. We will continue to keep parents updated as more information is released nationally. We are also responding to parental requests for ‘log-in’ information by providing video tutorials at the bottom of this page.

Many parents have reported that the information about setting up a home routine has been helpful. This will also be uploaded shortly.

Kind regards,

A.O’Brien

Dear Parent/Guardian

Thank you to all the parents and students who have e-mailed with questions regarding the work that has been set. We are overwhelmed by the number of people who are already setting positive learning routines at home. 

Please be patient in the first few days – we are aware that Microsoft Teams, Hegarty Maths etc. are all struggling under the pressure of the national demand. Whilst this is out of our direct control, we hope this will improve in the coming days and weeks. Unless urgent, please do not email teachers for the first few days about work until we allow the systems to settle down. The hard packs of work we sent to all students in years 7-10 should be arriving in the post shortly. We have also put some work on the Academy website.

Today we have created a ‘Well-being’ page on the Academy website. One of the elements of this page will be to provide information on ideas, materials and resources that parents could use with students outside of the set Academy work. This will be populated over the next twenty four hours and will be added to as we come across useful information.

Thanks for your patience

Kind regards,

A.O’Brien
