Learning From Home
We continue to hope you are all safe and well, and that home learning is going well. As the time goes on, we are continually updating and improving our support and guidance to make learning from home as accessible and as manageable as possible, and to support students in learning new information and knowledge.
Please keep checking this page for updates and to see our weekly newsletter, and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or queries you may have. We look forward to the time when we can come back together, but until then, please keep in touch and keep sharing your wonderful work and new skills you have been learning.
We hope that you are safe and well, and managing to be in a good routine with your home learning. We understand that learning at home is very different and challenging, so remember that your teachers are available on email. Paper based work is available from reception if you are not able to work online - please remember to name and return your work to the relevant year boxes. Using the Year timetables below, you should spend no more than one hour on each lesson. For Lesson 4, you have a choice of learning. The 'Education with Character' programme and student passport is a great place to explore and many of you are producing fantastic work through the Professional Studies challenges. If you are having any technical difficulties, please look at the section 'Technical Support' on this page. Please keep in touch, upload your work when you have been asked to do so and stay safe.
Year 7 Timetable
Year 8 Timetable
Year 9 Timetable
From 8th June, your timetable will change so that it will support you whether you are working at home or attending school sessions from 15th June. Your timetabled online lessons remain exactly the same and it is important you continue with these. Please see the letter below for further details. This is to help you cover the curriculum content for your GCSE courses in a supportive way, and to provide you with the feedback you need to progress through your subjects. Your lessons are in your class folders on TEAMS and it is essential that you complete the quizzes for each timetabled lesson. This will help you to manage your courses and be ready for when we are back in the classroom. Remember, your Head of Year, Mr Holden, your tutors and your subject teachers are all here to help you and available via email.

Key Worker/Vulnerable Students
Students whose parents are key workers or who fall under the 'vulnerable' catergory may register to attend school.
Sending your child to school will expose them to people from other households which is why children are best kept safe at home. Using Castle View Academy's provision should be a very last resort.
Provision for these students will be offered at CASTLE VIEW ACADEMY from 9:30-14:00 Monday to Friday. The registration form should be completed by every Friday for the following week.
Students need to bring their own packed lunch to school.
