- it's the spotted hyena! Spotted hyena are the largest type of hyena. We often think of them as scavengers but they also hunt as packs & can take down Zebra & antelope. Their super strong jaws allow them to chomp through and eat bone. https://t.co/Gz6xLzys2b

New 'remote working' arrangements for students

Academy updates on school closures will now be published on a dedicated website: http://harrisadvice.org.uk.


What is expected of me?

You are expected to complete and submit for all tasks set by your teachers by the given deadlines. Your tasks will be set on Microsoft Teams and SharePoint. Your teacher will use these platforms to monitor your completion of the tasks and to provide feedback. You will be given deadlines, and you must meet them.

If your teacher is concerned that you may be falling behind, they will first contact you on Teams and check that you are ok, that you understand and make sure you have enough support to complete the work. This is exactly as they would do at school.

Just like at school, if your teacher is very concerned that you aren’t logging into Teams and completing work, despite them having communicated with you, they will contact your parent or carer and raise the concerns with them.

The best way for you to manage your workload at home is to follow your timetable closely. Your teachers will provide you with plenty of work to help you to do this.


How can I get help from my teacher?

If you have attempted a task and you find you are unable to complete it because you need more guidance, you should first message your teacher on Teams and then by email if you don’t get a response – there is a risk that your message may not have reached your teacher if something has gone wrong.

You can always use the ‘chat’ function in Teams to seek support during lessons. You should never just ‘leave’ the work; you are responsible for managing your work and it must all be completed in full.


How should I communicate with my teacher?

This section has guidance about how to communicate with your teacher and other students about schoolwork, school matters or any worries or questions you may have.

You should send messages using Teams and/or email to your teachers to ask questions or for support.

All email communication should be made between the school hours on weekdays. Your teachers will not communicate with you outside of these times.

Your email communication and all messages on Teams should be formal


How will I know when it is going to open again?

­

­New information from the school about coronavirus, including details of possible school closures, can be found at http://harrisadvice.org.uk. This will always have the very latest information.

We will also update the school website and twitter, which we will update daily with any new information. Please check there each morning to see if there is anything new in our announcements page.

We will also email your parents/carers to keep them up to date. Any emails to parents/carers will be copied to the website so that you can see them there.

You won’t easily be able to call the school as there will not be lots of staff on duty. If there are any changes or any guidance published by exam boards for your examinations, we will let you know of this immediately.


How do I access the remote working systems?
