Student Support ‘Live’ Subject Drop-ins

Dear Parent/Carer

To further enhance the support the academy provides your son/daughter with home learning, we have scheduled a range of ‘live’ drop-in sessions that your child can attend in each subject.  Our first ‘Live’ subject drop-in week will start from Monday 18 to Friday 22 January 2021.

I have attached the timetable for these sessions. Your son/daughter needs to sign into their Google classroom on the date and time of this schedule and there will be a link for them to join the live session for that subject. Please also remember that your child has also been invited to a weekly ‘live’ tutor time session, where they are able to gain support from their tutor.

These support sessions will be an excellent opportunity for your child to ask their class teacher any questions they might have about their work and to gain extra support in that subject.

If two drop-in sessions are scheduled at the same time, your son/daughter will be able to move onto the next subject drop-in once they have received the support they need.

To access these support sessions your son/daughter must be logged in using their school login, so that they are able to access the Google classrooms for their sessions.

Please can you go over ‘live lesson’ etiquette with your child.  When they join the session their microphone should be muted at first and they should follow the instructions of the teacher.  Students that fail to follow these instructions and interrupt the session detrimentally will be removed from the session.

Access to a Device/Home Internet

May I take this opportunity to thank those parents who completed our device and home internet survey last weekend. The academy has made excellent progress in obtaining the devices and will be in contact with families that are eligible for a device in the near future.

Technical Queries

If you have any technical questions concerning Google Classroom, student logins or access to My Child at School, please contact: dl@wilmingtonacademy.org.uk and we will be happy to help you.

Registration

Please would you remind your son/daughter that they must register each morning on our student portal, this is the same as them gaining their registration mark if they were in school.  This must be done between 08.40am and 11.00am each morning.  Here is a link to the student portal, if you bookmark the link once your child has accessed the page, they will be able to access this easily each morning.

Free School Meals – Do you qualify?

If your circumstances have changed during the pandemic, KCC have provided the following link for parents to use to see if they might qualify for free school meals for their children.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.

 

Yours faithfully
