Working at Home

From week commencing 4th January 2021, most of our learners at Croxby will be working from home. However, the academy will remain open for children in the following categories:

Critical Worker Children; Children with an EHCP and Vulnerable Children

The following link provides in-depth information about the above categories

Children of critical workers and vulnerable children who can access schools or educational settings - GOV.UK (

Children who are working in the academy will access the same learning as they would at home. They will not be taught face to face by their teachers. If you think your child may be eligible to attend, then please contact the academy office.

As you are aware, we have introduced a blended approach to learning on Microsoft Teams. This enables the children to learn via electronic and online media combined with traditional face-to-face teaching. 

What will this look like for my child logging on? 

A teacher from your child’s year group will lead the daily lessons and these can be accessed live or later. There may be a second member of staff in the lesson to help children with any misconceptions and to provide live feedback. This will be the only opportunity for pupils to receive live feedback. The lessons which are recorded are private and must not be shared. Below, you will find pupil guides, which you should read with your child, so they understand the expectations of this blended learning approach. 

Here is the timetable of lessons for each year group.

Instructions to help you access and use Microsoft Teams, if you are not already familiar with it are below. If your child is in Reception, they have been sent home a whiteboard and pen to use during their lessons. If your child is in Year 1 or 2, they have been sent home a whiteboard and pen, their White Rose maths workbook for their maths lesson and an exercise book for all other lessons. For children in Year 3 – 6, most lessons can be completed on their devices using Purple Mash or LBQ (as they are in the Academy) however, they have also been given an exercise book to use when instructed by their teacher. 

If you have any questions about the use of this blended learning approach, please contact the Academy office via email.
