Remote Learning at GDA

Tips for Home Learning

Should George Dixon Academy be subjected to further enforced closures be it by the government and / or public health guidelines related to COVID 19, the academy is committed to providing continuity of education to all of its students and will do so via Microsoft Teams.  Lessons will be uploaded to Microsoft Teams by 9am each day, following the students’ timetables. To support your child / children when learning at home, we suggest the following:

  • Where possible, set up a space for learning

Try to set aside an area of the home where your child / children will be able to focus without the distractions of a television or a games console etc.

  • Try to follow the academy timetable if possible

We appreciate that you may be juggling working from home whilst supporting your child / children with their home learning. As such we have tried to design our online learning in a way that is fully accessible to our students, hopefully requiring minimal input from parents. Your child / children can message their teacher via Microsoft Teams for help and support with their home learning and as always the Head of Year is available should you need to contact them.

Should you need any further support or guidance regarding Microsoft Teams, please contact us.
