Aylward Academy- Parent Wellbeing and Support

This page has been designed to offer support and guidance to you and your families during the Coronavirus period.

We understand that every household is different; families across the country are overcoming a range of challenges and adapting to new ways of working. We want Parents to feel supported and connected whilst their child is working remotely. We have therefore included a range of websites, helplines and learning resources that may be of use to you and your child to support general wellbeing and learning from a distance.

My child’s learning and progress:

What should my child be doing whilst learning from home?

  • Students are expected to follow the new distance learning timetable where possible. We have updated the timetable for each year group which can be found on our home page or by clicking the button below.
  • Students are expected to register in the morning and for every lesson. This can be done using the 'Click to Register' link at the top of every page on this website or during their lessons from the classwork tab.
  • Lessons are delivered through Google Classroom which students can access via RMUnify Students are given the opportunity to ask questions during these sessions and are required to submit work online.
  • Reading plays a vital role across all key stages. Students are being sent daily articles from The Day. to read and quiz on via our Accelerated Reader programme.
  • Your child will be issued an assessment task this half-term in each subject (called an ILT - Identified Learning Task). It is vital that your child completes this ILT work in order to gain feedback from their teacher on their learning so far and minimise any knowledge gaps moving forward.
