PARTIAL REOPENING

From Monday 23rd March, schools across the country have been closed to the majority of pupils.

The school reopened to Year 6 children on Monday 1st June. We then reopened to Year 1 children on Monday 15th June, then to Reception children on Wednesday 1st July.

Hawkes Farm Academy is also open to the children of critical workers and vulnerable children. All families of vulnerable learners have been contacted directly and the link here offers guidance on the definition of critical workers.

TIMINGS FOR THE SCHOOL DAY

We have introduced a series of carefully staggered drop off and pick up times which will allow all adults and children to socially distance. We have also allowed a ten-minute window for both drop off and pick up times so that we can ensure social distancing rules can be adhered to at all times.

Reception children should arrive between 8.45am and 8.55am, and should be collected between 2.45pm and 2.55pm.

Year 1 children should arrive between 8.55am and 9.05am, and should be collected between 2.55pm and 3.05pm.

HOME LEARNING

Home learning tasks for children in years 2, 3, 4 and 5 are uploaded fortnightly. At Hawkes Farm Academy, we have added to our home learning offer for children in years 2, 3, 4 and 5 with a series of teacher-led instructional videos focusing on maths and English.

Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 home learning tasks are uploaded weekly, reflecting the tasks taking place in class. You can find the home learning tasks here.
