Really pleased to see so many Year 10 students back today 👏👏. 👀 Looking forward to seeing the rest of you during the week.


The Academy welcomes the return of our Year 10 students back onto site from Monday 15th June 2020, starting with groups 1, 2, 3 & 4.


Thanks for you continued patience with the issue currently affecting access to Microsoft Teams. We are still working on a full resolution to the issue, however some students' Teams should slowly become available again during today.


We are aware of an issue with Microsoft Teams that may be preventing students from logging on or seeing their correct classes across the Federation. We are working to resolve this issue, and will update you when this has been resolved.


***UPDATE*** Following further Government guidance, Y10 students are now planned for return on Monday 15th June.

Thanks to the teacher who called to make sure our son is ok while he's stuck at home. Really important that all children, but especially those who are vulnerable, are checked on by schools during this time.

That was emotional 💙


Retweetd From Harris Federation

PLEASE RETWEET: with 36,000 families at our schools in London and Essex, we want to supply food parcels for those in need (on top of free school meals which we’re already doing). We’ll fully fund this but URGENTLY need a supermarket chain to help.


Parents of students with Free School Meals, please see this from the DfE

Online Learning and Working from Home

What is expected of students?

You are expected to complete and submit work for all tasks set by your teachers by the given deadlines. The tasks will be set on Microsoft Teams. Your teacher will use this platform to monitor your completion of the tasks and to provide feedback. You will be given deadlines, which you are expected to meet.

If your teacher is concerned that you may be falling behind, they will first contact you on Teams to check that you understand and make sure you have enough support to complete the work. This is exactly as they would do at the Academy.

Just like at the Academy, if your teacher is very concerned that you aren’t logging into Teams and completing work, despite them having communicated with you, they will contact your parent or carer and raise the concerns with them.

The best way for you to manage your workload at home is to follow your timetable closely; you must be disciplined with this. Your teachers will provide you with enough work.

How can I get help from my teacher?

If you have attempted a task and you find you are unable to complete it because you need more guidance, you should first message your teacher on Teams and then by email if you don’t get a response – there is a risk that your message may not have reached your teacher if something has gone wrong.

You can always use the ‘chat’ function in Teams to seek support during Academy hours. You should never just ‘leave’ the work; you are responsible for managing your work and it must all be completed in full and turned into Teams on time.

How should I communicate with my teacher?

This section has guidance about how to communicate with your teacher and other students about schoolwork, Academy matters or any worries or questions you may have.

You should send messages using Teams and/or email to your teachers to ask questions or for support. This communication is all accessible on the Teams page allowing your teachers instant access to your queries.

All Teams communication should be made between the normal Academy hours on weekdays. Your teachers will not communicate with you outside of these times.  Your communication and all messages on Teams should be formal.

How will I know when the Academy is going to open again?

New information from the Academy about coronavirus, including details of possible Academy closures, can be found at This will always have the very latest information.

We will also update the Academy website, please ensure you are checking this for new announcements that will be shown on the home page.  Letters and emails to your parents/carers will be sent to keep them up to date.

You won’t easily be able to call the Academy as there will be limited reception staff on duty. If there are any changes or any guidance published by exam boards for your examinations, we will let you know of this immediately.

How do I access the remote working systems (Sharepoint & Teams)?
