Continuing your education by working from home

In light of recent guidance around preventing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are doing our best to support students by providing resources and subject information for those able to work remotely. These resources are grouped below by Key Stage but, should you require any additional information, please email your subject leader. Contact details for individual staff members can be found here.

Remote education provision

The information in our Remote Education Procedures document is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from Vale of York Academy regarding your child’s ‘remote’ education provision if national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.

It is of absolute importance that your child continues with their compulsory education despite not physically attending school.

The Academy’s shadow curriculum (the provision/structure that sits behind our formal curriculum) is designed to fully facilitate the continuation of your child’s educational journey through remote learning.

Remote learning is the same as ‘on-line’ learning. All remote learning for every class will be set through the use of the ‘GOOGLE CLASSROOM’ platform.

In the event that entire cohorts are required to remain at home, a ‘blended’ approach by The Academy will be adopted by teaching staff to support remote learning.
