We are introducing the use of a VLE to the Academy. This will be trialled during the Summer Term by a small selected group of teachers and students with the aim of rolling it out across the Academy from September 2016.
The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is a web-based system that allows teachers to share resources with their students and set tasks for those students to complete. The range of innovative and interactive tasks that can be set through the VLE provide exciting ways to enhance and extend students' learning while providing many useful features such as being able to download extra copies of worksheets and keep up with work being missed during absences from school.
We are aiming to also open the system up to parents and carers with added functionality that will help make it even easier to keep up-to-date with what is going on at the Academy. With the use of the VLE to report to parents, we are hoping to achieve the following objectives:
- Better communication to keep you more up-to-date with important information, letters, and dates of events such as parents evenings etc for your child
- Help you develop a better understanding of your child's curriculum by providing access to course overviews, programmes of study and example resources
- Improve the effectiveness of homework by allowing you to see what tasks your child has been set so that additional help and guidance can be provided at home
Parents will be provided with usernames and passwords indue course.
