Dear Parent and Pupil

All pupils will have the same timetable when working remotely. This will ensure they can stick to their normal routines as well as giving you time as a family to have lunch together.

Your child will have live lessons delivered by their normal teachers in Years 10-13 and live lessons delivered by some of our most experienced teachers in years 7-9. You can review this timetable online.

We want to replicate at home the feel, structures and excitement your child receives when learning in the classroom. We also know that too much screen time can be exhausting and unhealthy for children so we have reduced our online lessons to 45 minutes to provide longer breaks away from the screen at break and lunch for your child. During these breaks your child could:

  • Read a book
  • Do some exercise
  • Call a friend/relative
  • Support you with chores around the house
  • Complete any outstanding work

The new remote timetable is below.

Day in the Life

We have also created a day in the life guide so our pupils and parents can be really clear on what a normal school day at home looks like.

Wellbeing and Enrichment

Our students’ wellbeing is absolutely vital, and we want to do everything we can to support them at this time. All students are working with their tutors on their wellbeing during AM and PM form time every day, more information can be found here. Wellbeing at AJK.pdf

We have also put together a variety of after school enrichment activities, including a live PE session on a Thursday, more details of which can be found here. Extra-curricular Activities.pdf

 

Passwords

Please see our online guide to resetting your child’s password. Each pupil should have a unique password known only to them which is written down on page 7 of their planner. If you have any issues with your child’s password please email info@arkjohnkeatsacademy.org.

What happens if I can’t log in?

Make sure you are entering your password correctly and not using capital letters?

Try and change your email address. Sometimes your address may have a full stop between your first initial and surname (like j.bloggs) and sometimes it will have the full stop between the year and your name (2025.jbloggs).

If both the above do not work please email info@arkjohnkeatsacademy.org and give your full name and year group and we will email you back your details.
