Phase 2 Home Learning
The Phase 2 Home Learning Plan has been created to help students and staff establish daily routines, provide careers links and help students organise their work. In the plan there is a timetable for each year group to follow which includes times when students can access their teachers through Zoom Support Sessions. Teachers are still setting work through Firefly as we work towards Yr9/10 and Yr12 exams in June. Yr11 and Yr13 students must, at the time of posting this, continue to work on their BTEC/Vocational units to the best of their ability.
Yr13 A Level students should ensure that they continue to work on their subject knowledge and professional development so not to be at a disadvantage when they start university. Every Curriculum Area has a Forum page within their FireFly section with details of Zoom Support Sessions and additional information.
There is a Professional Development and Transition Course page with guidance on suggested courses for Yr11 and Yr13 to engage with. All students have access to EduCare where they can choose from a wide selection of online courses paid for by AUEA. The Transition Courses are required to be completed by Yr11 wishing to attend AUEA 6th Form and suggested for Yr13 looking to go on to University.
