We know that this period of school closure brings all sorts of challenges to our students and their families. At Walthamstow Academy, we are committed to providing good quality remote learning in a way that supports in our students at this difficult time and recognises the additional challenges they face. Our way of working during school closure is described below under the five headings from the United Learning Framework for Excellence.
We continue to seek the Best in Everyone, knowing that the best our students can give will depend on their own circumstances. We seek to do this through:
Our students still benefit from the Walthamstow Academy curriculum and the expert guidance of their teachers. Each lesson is designed to help students make progress. We use ‘voice-over powerpoints’ to explain new ideas and then the best resources available for testing and consolidation. Teachers take in work through Google Classroom and provide feedback to help their students improve.
The remote school curriculum from April 20 to May 23 can be found here.
Our full curriculum is based on the United Learning curriculum, which can be found here for each year group.
