Letter to Parents regarding Distance Learning

18 March 2020

Dear Parent/Carer

Distance Learning Website/Covid 19

As you are aware the situation and advice relating to Covid 19 is changing on a daily basis with updates from  central government. To prepare for any academy closure we have been busy working on a distance learning platform, so that every student has access to resources to use at home.  The address for the website is:  


The website contains every resource your son/daughter needs to work successfully at home including the following:

  • A guide of how the website works
  • Instructions of how to log on to Google classroom for year 9-13
  • A page containing links to other educational platforms
  • Students must be signed in to Google using their school email account and password to access resources
How to access Resources
Year 7 and 8 Folder on website – students must click link Lessons provided and updated weekly
Year 9 to 13 Google classroom – students must click link Lessons and resources are updated weekly

Resources will be updated by teaching staff on a weekly basis and this will remain in place for the entire time the academy is closed.  If your child has any problems logging on, or accessing these resources, please can you send an email to dl@wilmingtonacademy.org.uk and this will be passed on to our distance learning team.

Exam classes have already received an assembly on how to access resources at home and staff have received Google Classroom training.  Many thanks for your support in these unprecedented circumstances.

Yours faithfully
