Help and support for parents

All of our leaders and staff understand how challenging these times are for parents, carers and their families. We have created this section to keep you in the loop with things at the academy and to offer some additional websites and sources of help and support.

Please see here for our approach to remote learning.

Safeguarding

For safeguarding reasons, teachers are not permitted to give out their telephone numbers, but pupils will be able to email into the school, and the school switchboard will continue to be operational.

If during a temporary closure of the school you or your child need to reach us, our telephone number is 0203 371 3002 and our email address is invictussupport@harrisinvictus.org.uk

The most urgent enquiries, including safeguarding issues for any vulnerable pupils, will be answered first. If your enquiry is not urgent, please bear with us if there is a delay in responding. 

Free school meals

As you are aware you can get additional support for Free school meals. If you believe your child may be entitled to Free School Meals or you want to enquire about Free School Meals Vouchers during school closure, please contact the school office on 0203 371 3002

Online Learning

We are conscious that with the increased amount of time on-line that we need to be more vigilant than ever. Please do read our Staying Safe Online guidance. And if you have any concerns at all, please do not hesitate to contact the safeguarding team at the Academy.

Virtual learning

A questionnaire for parents has been completed and we have used your feedback to make improvements and respond to any concerns raised. Please keep in contact if you feel there is anything further, we can do to support.

Please do support and help your child:

- by helping them to create a schedule for their school week

- asking them to show you their work and to talk through it with them

- trying to help students with their work, for example if your child is stuck, asking them to talk through their work and where they are stuck can often help. Our teachers are trying their very best to mark and feedback on work so check your child is submitting their work so that teachers can help.

- remaining positive and helping your child to socialise, for example, Skype and facetime.

Having routines is important so having a sharp start to the day with breaks and lunch is important and we have tried to ensure that routines are kept consistent by keeping to the usual Academy day.

Support for parents of vulnerable students, including those with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities

The academy has remained opened for the above group and prepared a timetable for students who are attending, including social distanced physical education! We have ensured that all social distancing and Government protocols are being followed. If you are a keyworker and you want your child to attend school then please do email: info@harrisinvictus.org.uk or call us on 0203 371 3002. The latest list of keyworkers can be found on:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision

Our SEND students (those who have an Education, health and care plan) have a mixture of remote learning, one-to-one tutorials in English, mathematics and science and remote support from a member of the SEND team. Our speech and language therapist has also continued with remote support and this has been very much appreciated by parents.

Ms Jamila Astwood is leading the SEND team during this time and so please email her on J.Astwood@harrisinvictus.org.uk if you have any questions and/or queries.

Please note that there is some useful help and advice available for parents to help support children with special educational needs during the crisis. This includes:

The Harris Invictus Academy Support email

We have created a bespoke email for parents and students to use during the crisis. It is:

invictussupport@harrisinvictus.org.uk

We will prioritise dealing with any concerns in relation to our vulnerable group of students but we have a team of staff who will monitor and check any information coming into the email.

Other sources of support and guidance

We are conscious that remote learning and students using more internet resources may bring some additional worries. Our staff have received updated training and protocols on safeguarding at this time. We are confident that our use of technology is safe.
