Welcome to Astrea Academy Dearne’s Home Learning Centre. Here you will be able to access your child’s timetable and curriculum which supports them should they have to miss any of their education in school.
Astrea Academy Dearne’s core vision is ‘every student’ matters and we want every student to succeed and make progress, and keep up with their lessons so that they do not miss out on any more learning. To ensure that this happens, each student has access to the high quality learning resources that follows the in-lesson learning curriculum, which has been carefully prepared by their teachers and faculties.

Each child who is off school is still expected to complete work, if they are well enough to do so. This will ensure that they are reducing gaps in their knowledge and learning. Additionally, they will be more prepared for when they return to school and re-join their classes.

Expectations for Home Learning:

If a student is absent (awaiting a COVID test result or other) and would normally be attending school, they are expected to:

    • continue to follow the academy timetable whilst at home isolating
    • complete all work to the best of their ability
    • at the end of each day send all completed work to
    • contact school should they not have internet access

Please look at your timetable displayed below. It will tell you what your school day is today. If you are absent, select the sessions that you have. Each session will provide you with resources to enable you to complete your work. The sessions are updated weekly to ensure you have access to the latest resources.

Please download and use the workbooks available:

  1. A printable work book that you can write on, is available here. Downloadable workbook
  2. An interactive work book that can be used with a device that has Word on, is available here. Download Interactive work book
