Information correct as of 5th Jan 2021

Following the Prime Minister's announcement of a further national lockdown in England, the Academy will only be open to vulnerable students and children of key workers.

All other students are expected to remain at home and undertake remote learning. Please note that the expectations are quite different to the previous remote learning that was undertaken and we appreciate the support in ensuring your child completes the required work:

  • Students will follow their normal Academy timetable (w/c 4th January is Week A)

  • Teachers will upload pre-recorded lessons to the class’ Google Classroom by 8.40 each day. These lessons will be placed in the ‘Remote Teaching’ topic folder.

  • Lessons will be one hour in length and can be accessed on any device that can access Google Classroom, but students will benefit from larger screens.

  • Students are to complete all work in their Homework exercise book, unless the teacher states otherwise.

  • Each lesson, students will be told what equipment is necessary for the completion of work. Please ensure that this equipment is available (it will be the equipment that students are expected to bring into school each day).

Students in Y12 and Y13 will have live lessons, please make yourself aware of the behaviour policy regarding online lessons

We are aware of a Y11 BTEC music exam on Thursday 7th January and a Y12 Health and Social care exam on Friday 8th January - these exams will take place and students should carry on preparing for them. Further information regarding attendance and location of exams will be communicated early next week.

From w/c 11th January, students in all years will continue to have remote learning, however, some of their lesson time will also be live with their teacher. More details will follow next week.

 

If you have any queries or problems with accessing remote learning, please email: remoteteachinghelpdesk@plympton.academy

 

Free School Meals

Throughout the period of partial opening we will continue to support those students who are entitled to free school meals through the distribution of vouchers. These will be sent to your current email address that we have on the system. Any concerns with this please email finance@plympton.academy in the first instance.
