Working From Home

Everything you need to know when you can’t get into Global Academy

Global Academy aims to deliver face to face learning for all students after closure due to the global pandemic. However, we are aware there will be occasions when some students are unable to attend the Academy (isolation, illness, snow days, travel disruption .etc). Additionally – we are required to put plans in place in case of a local or national lockdown arrangement or a breakout of COVID-19 within the Global Academy community.

 

Please see below to help inform you of the implementation of blended learning across a number of eventualities in order to ensure you’re best informed of what you can do if you’re unable to partake with online learning.

 

Covid Symptoms:

Parents must inform Reception via the info@globalacademy.com mailbox that COVID-19

symptoms are the reason for their absence and follow NHS111 guidance as to who needs isolate and book a test.

 

Students who are unwell need to focus on getting better and Global Academy will help them to catch on any work they have missed when they return fit and well. However, students who are absent for Covid-related issues, and are well enough, will be able to access work they miss via the details below.

 

 

Key Stage 4

 

All students are able to access their work is on Canvas, our online learning environment. This can be accessed via www.globalacademy.com/canvas .

All Core Subjects (English, Maths and Science), Media and complementary GCSE options have their own areas within Canvas where work will be uploaded. Students also have access to their Maths Watch and Tassomai accounts where they can revise and revisit topics for maths and Science.

Students also have access to the full Adobe Creative Cloud to complete any practical work by accessing www.globalacademy.com/adobe and using their school login.
