Five Acres High School

GLT Shared Curriculum

From Monday April 20 2020 (this is no longer an INSET day) we will be altering the curriculum offer in order to streamline and simplify things for students and parents in Years 7-9 in particular.  We are collaborating with other Greenshaw Learning Trust schools on this, which will enable us to improve the quality of resources and feedback we are able to offer each of our students. This will also allow us to build a sustainable model that will ensure lessons are always available, even during periods of staff absence. All students should continue with their existing homework and reading requirements which sit alongside these changes.

All Year 7-9 students will now follow a new timetable, included over the page. Lessons should be completed on the correct day but can be completed at a time within the day that best suits students and family circumstances. These lessons will always follow the same format - they will start with a short quiz, before a teacher delivers a lesson via a pre-recorded video clip (these may not be their class teacher but is a specialist teacher within GLT). Finally, the lesson will end with another short quiz, called an “Exit Ticket”. All resources will still be accessible through Google Classrooms. Please let your child know about this change of timetable.

Alongside this, we are also offering a helpdesk for each subject. If pupils require help in a subject, they should email the helpdesk for that subject. These helpdesks will be operated by teachers who will respond with support. For help in subjects not listed below, students should email their own teachers or contact them through Google Classrooms

Year 10 students will continue to work in the way they were before the holidays with work being set by their class teacher and monitored for completion. This enables us to give them specific support for the courses we offer here which may differ from those in other GLT schools.

Year 11 students will be contacted separately due to their specific situation, full details of their offer from us will be with you on Monday at the latest.

We are confident that these improvements will be beneficial to our students and we are happy to take any questions you may have through the normal ways of contacting our school.
