Virtual Learning Resources
This page has details of how to access learning for when students need to study from home. We will keep this section of our website up to date to support students with their remote learning.
Need help with data or devices? We know that access to appropriate devices and WiFi is a barrier to many families. The academy has various avenues to support your family at this difficult time. Click HERE to find out more.
Virtual Learning for all students has been set up on Microsoft Teams, an interactive online learning platform which allows teachers to create resources for students to access at home and then assignments to be handed in remotely.
You will find a guide to accessing MS Teams at the bottom of this page.
All pupils have access to Microsoft Teams and they will find their classes, subjects and year groups are already allocated in MS Teams. They can download MS Teams onto their devices at home and/or on their mobile for free.
Students need to use their Harris login to sign in on Microsoft 365. If students need their login/password reset, please contact us at the academy on email@example.com and we can arrange this.
Please do remember our etiquette for remote learning and how we interact to support one another.

Timetables - creating a structure
Our advice is to try to achieve as much ‘structure’ as you possibly can with regards to learning at home, with set times for work and set times for relaxation and other activities. Students are expected to attend live lessons (if applicable) and submit work regularly to support their learning. The tasks that are set have been designed with remote learning in mind and your daughter should be able to work on most tasks relatively independently.
As far as possible, do talk with your daughter about the learning she has undertaken every day and monitor her computer/mobile use to check that she is completing work regularly. Her teachers will be checking in and will contact you if there are concerns that she is not completing work.
