In order to provide remote education for your child, teachers have planned and resourced a three week curriculum sequence for the students they teach. This is equivalent in length to the teaching your child would receive in school and has been planned and sequenced so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally with clarity about what's intended to be learned and practised. This includes:
a Google Classroom containing a range of activities and direct teaching time from the Oak National Academy. Teachers will check this daily and will interact with your child, monitor how they are progressing, provide them with feedback and, when needed, revise the material to maximise learning.
Given the fact that we are using Google Classroom and Century consistently across the academy, we have posted letters, sent emails and had tutors call home to remind all student’s of their online usernames and passwords. Queries about passwords should be directed to email@example.com
One of the best things your child could do is lots of reading. To support this, we have a range of reading books that they are welcome to take home. They can also access reading books for free online:
Virtual school library: every week a popular author will provide you with free books, exclusive videos and their top reads.

If your child would like to extend their learning further:
- Oak National Academy offers students online lessons and resources for the full range of ages and subjects
- BBC Bitesize: Learning at home: videos, quizzes and practice activities. Pick your year and subject and get started.
- BBC Teach: Live lessons for secondary schools
Our hope in sharing this information is that you fully understand that we, at The Brunel Academy, are doing all that we can to keep our students and staff safe, whilst at the same time continuing to provide them with a valuable education.
