Remote Home Learning

Carew Academy is currently offering both an in-school and remote education package for our students that are not in school with us during this lockdown period.

Home Learning will be set on Google Classroom. Students do not need a printer for resources as they can either
write on paper or can complete work online. ALL students have access to Google Classroom with their user name  and password. If you need these, please contact your son/daughter’s Tutor.
Students who are in school and out of school will have the same work set by the same teachers.

Students who are remaining at home all the time will have access to all of the work and we have asked staff to ensure there is lots of engaging content such as videos etc. to support the students.
It is really important that parents provide structure over the next few weeks, so we have put a suggested timetable for all students in place.

Student Timetable:
Students should do their best to follow this at home. On Fridays they can chose their activities and then Golden Time is the opportunity for you to reward them if they have stuck to the schedule all week. Obviously, lessons at home do not have to last for a whole hour but if you can complete some work in each slot then this will help students to stick to their routine

Lots of great content uploaded to Google Classroom so please ensure your son/daughter is logging in and checking. The Senior Leadership Team will be checking to see which students have been logging in.
We would remind you that there are lots of other resources out there to support home learning too and the BBC is putting on a large number of educational programmes, so please do try and keep a routine going!
It is REALLY important to know that you can access Google Classroom via both X-Box and Play Station. This means that rather than need a tablet computer or to share devices at home, you can buy a £10 keyboard from Amazon and access all the learning in exactly the same way you would on a Tablet or PC.
Here is a link that explains how to do it:

If you need help and support please get in touch, we want all our students to “keep going” with their learning,
showing the same excellent attitudes they do in school. If you have a query with work set, either liaise with the teachers teaching them every other week in school or liaise with the member of staff who will be calling all students who are not attending school.

Carew is an amazing school for our son, he now shines academically and his social skills are outstanding since being part of Carew.  Most of all they understand his needs and support him daily.
