Following further government and DfE guidance, the Academy will not open to pupils until at least the 8th of March. Remote learning will therefore continue to be the main avenue to continue teaching and learning and pupils are advised to follow their normal school timetable where possible. At Castleford Academy, we are using a blend of both live and pre-recorded video lessons for remote learning. All live lessons need to be accessed through pupils' personal TEAMS calendar and pre-recorded remote learning activities will need to be accessed through the Show My Homework platform. Pupils must complete activities set and ensure that this work is submitted back to their teacher in the method requested by their teacher in the live lesson or on Show My Homework.
