Academy Response to COVID-19
As you know, we are all facing extraordinary challenges at this time and the situation is placing pressure on all parts of society.
The Government has advised schools in England to close, except for certain groups of children, from this Friday afternoon (20th March) onwards as a further measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. No date has been set for when schools will re-open for all students.
From Monday 23rd March, the school will continue to be open for the following groups of students:
Children whose parents are frontline workers – the Government has said these would include NHS staff, police and supermarket delivery drivers. However, others will be in this category and we expect to hear more from the Government on this in the coming days.
Those classed as what the Secretary of State described as “vulnerable children”. These could be those who have a social worker and those with EHCPs.
Our staff have been doing all they can to keep our school open, or partially open, since this crisis began. As you may be aware, the Government made several very important decisions about schools. There will be further detail to follow but I wanted to ensure you had as much information as possible as early as possible. For up to date information please visit our Letters to Parents page.
