YEAR 11 & 13 REMOTE LEARNING
This is guidance for year 11 and year 13 students who are working remotely either because they have self-isolated or the academy has been temporarily closed as a result of the Corona Virus pandemic.
Remote Learning FOR YEAR 11 and YEAR 13
Looking for information for year 10 and year 12 students? click this link.
As you will no doubt be aware, the government has instructed all schools to close with immediate effect.
All examinations and assessments have been cancelled, including those for A’Levels, BTEC qualifications (Pathways) and GCSEs.
Despite this, the government have promised that all students will be awarded the qualifications they need. However we await details of how this will be achieved and how grades will be awarded.
We are currently in the process of compiling evidence of your progress and in-year achievement as we expect we will be asked to provide this in the near future. It is unclear what will inform A’Level and GCSE grades, but for the BTEC qualifications we expect grades awarded will be based in some way upon the results of internal unit assessments completed over the last two years.
With this in mind, it would be inappropriate to implement a structured remote working timetable for year 11 or 13 (as we have done for year 10 and 12).
Instead we are asking students to finish off any BTEC assignment work which is currently outstanding and email it in.
Teachers will ensure that you receive guidance as to what work you could be completing to maximise your grade, and will make themselves available via email and the VLE tools (such as google classroom) to respond to your needs.
We acknowledge that there are serious limitations on what you can achieve without access to the specialist resources at the academy, but never the less we will do what we can.
Please note that you will need to use their BOA VLE account to email teachers and upload evidence of your work.
In the event that you are having issues logging in to your academy email or online resources please contact ITHelp@boa-academy.co.uk.
Of course we will keep you updated with regards to this situation as information becomes available.
Thank you for your on-going support at this difficult time.
