Our main focus for provision at this time is the online work and live Skype lessons but we are also able to support children of essential workers and vulnerable children (as defined in the Government guidance) with on site provision if they are unable to continue working at home due to a change in parent circumstances. If you would like to discuss the availability of this provision, please contact Mark Eastwood by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
█ Contacts for parents
During full closure we are only able to monitor one phone line – parents can leave voicemail messages on 01366 389136 which will be checked at least daily.
If you wish to discuss something confidential, for example a concern with the safety or welfare of a child, please do not leave full details in your message but request an urgent call back from one of the safeguarding team along with your child’s name and your details. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
If you have any concerns regarding the safety or welfare of any Downham Market Academy or Athena College student please email: email@example.com
If your child has SEND and you or they need extra support, advice or help with their work at home please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child needs support with their work please encourage them to use the support and marking email addresses below for help – a teacher will reply with support.

█ Project Challenge: Challenge Yourself!
We have some project challenges that you might like to try. We really want to celebrate the ingenuity that your generation of students is capable of under adversity. Well also want to share outstanding work with the wider community once life returns to pre-lockdown normal, so go for it: show them what you can do!
These challenges are open to all students at Downham Market Academy, Chesterton Community College, Impington Village College and Witchford Village College. We hope that youll be able to make some new connections with like minds
