How to Access Remote Learning

In light of the Government announcement of schools being closed with immediate effect, except for vulnerable children and children of critical workers your child will be accessing education remotely at home using Microsoft Teams.

Should you need a school place because you are a critical worker or your child is vulnerable, please contact your child’s PLA.  

To log into Microsoft Teams, your child will need to use their school email address and password. This is in the form of username@stwilfridsacademy.org.uk

Should your child need a reminder of either their username or a reset password then please contact their PLA directly.

Remote learning will be offered to all students and your child will be expected to ‘attend’ each session on the days that they would normally physically attend St. Wilfrids Academy. If they would normally attend one of our offsite providers (DCLT, Enhancement, Developing Futures, DVPDC, Cirque, YMCA and Future Pathways) then those providers will deliver remote learning separately if they are not able to open or offer a place.

Daily, Live Teacher led sessions will start promptly online at 9am, 10:30am and 12 noon from Monday 11th January. There will be a teacher input followed by a learning activity. Any student(s) who are absent from sessions where attendance is expected will be contacted by their PLA.

Four Microsoft Teams have been set up for students; KS3 – Work at Home, Y10 – Work at Home and Y11 – Work at Home and an ‘Options’ Team for Year 10 and 11 students to access jointly. When your child logs in, they will find their lesson in the Team corresponding to their year group.

They will follow this timetable:

Finally, I would like to thank you for your support and reassure you that we will be fully open as soon as restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, should you require assistance regarding remote learning or anything else in respect to your child’s education, please do not hesitate to contact their PLA in the first instance.
