Following the announcement from the Government on Wednesday 18th March to close all schools after Friday 20th March until further notice, the Academies will be closed to the majority of pupils. 
 
More information will be shared with you over the next two days which will include how we will be able to repurpose the buildings to provide support for Key workers including NHS and Emergency services.

Our highest priority is the health and wellbeing of the children and staff.  During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are following Public Health England’s advice carefully.  

Thankfully experts suggest children are not particularly vulnerable to the virus.  It remains of the highest importance that we do all we can to protect each other and slow the virus.  

Your child’s academy is open.  If they are well, they do not have a serious underlying health condition, and no one at home has symptoms, they are required to be in school.

Children, young people and staff should stay at home for 14 days if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend school as normal.

Public Health England are recommending everyone follows social distancing advice, especially if your child or someone in your household has an underlying health condition.  Social distancing involves avoiding: contact with someone with symptoms, non-essential use of public transport, gatherings with friends, families, and large groups.

If your child, or someone you live with, has symptoms, then all household members must stay at home and not leave for 14 days.  If your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online.  In an emergency, dial 999.
