Free tuition for Pupil Premium/Free School Meals students
During the summer of 2020 and as a direct result of COVID-19, Invicta Academy was set up with the sole purpose of helping the children of the United Kingdom catch up on missed learning. They have delivered over 1.2m minutes of learning and Invicta Academy has interactive lessons delivered by qualified teachers.
Throughout the October half-term holiday Invicta will be running Maths and English lessons every day across five key stage groups. Their Maths and English lessons will be taught live by a fully-qualified teacher assisted by a trained facilitator (to handle Q&A). Teachers will be delivering a short burst, high impact provision crafted by their Co-Founder who is a Specialist Leader of Education. Each lesson will be 45 minutes in duration and taught via zoom.
If your son qualifies for Free School Meals and/or is Pupil Premium then he will be able to access this online tuition free of charge. Click the link to apply. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScmC_Yl5ukajijTTbhux5OaQOe8R3rXWhXl5QhsneYF-5-4ZA/viewform
If your son does not qualify for Free School Meals or Pupil Premium then he can still access the lessons for £2. Please follow the link if you are interested. https://www.invictaacademy.com/
We hope your son can advantage of this opportunity.
INVICTA SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT
Safeguarding children is our first and foremost priority and, as we know not everyone is entirely comfortable about online lessons, we wanted to reiterate our Remote Teaching Policy. The zoom lesson will be moderated by a facilitator, who has an enhanced DBS check, who will manage the Q&A function and relay questions back to the teacher. The resources will be run by the teacher who will also have an enhanced DBS check, via the Screen Share option within Zoom. The lesson will be run as a webinar meaning that only the teacher and facilitator will be in vision. All screens and microphones will be switched off so children will not be visible to each other, or to the teacher and facilitator, and nor will they have the capacity to talk or private message each other or the teachers. All teachers and facilitators will be issued with our zoom protocol and our safeguarding policy which includes only having zoom and teaching materials open on their computers, turning off notifications on their computer, acceptable dress code, background guidance and appropriate language policy. Further to this and as part of our pupil recruitment, parents agree to sign up to our code of conduct and they are also asked to be present and available during the lesson. The facilitator and the Invicta Academy management team will have contact details for parents should an issue arise during the lesson and they need to get hold of the parents urgently. Our named Designated Safeguarding Lead is Caroline Platt and you can read our policy here:- https://www.invictaacademy.com/safeguarding
