School Closed until 20th April
The school is closed due to insufficient staffing and cleaning resource
As you will no doubt be aware, the Government has made a number of announcements in relation to measures to prevent the further spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The health and safety of our pupils, staff and the wider school community is, as always, our number one priority. As you know, we have been closely following all government guidance relating to the virus. We have also taken all the necessary precautions since the national outbreak to prevent it from impacting our Academy and to keep pupils safe. There are no confirmed cases of any student or member of staff at the academy contracting Covid-19. Whilst the Government has not announced the widespread closure of schools, unfortunately the cumulative impact of the current measures has led to significant levels of staff absence. Therefore, regrettably I have to inform you that we will be closing the Academy from Wednesday 18th March until Sunday 19th April, returning on Monday 20th April. As you will note, this period includes the Easter holiday which will run from 6th April 2020 until 17th April 2020.
Whilst we understand that this is likely to cause disruption for you and your family, we have robust plans in place so that your child can continue their education during this time. As always, we are committed to ensuring that our pupils receive the best possible education and will be working hard to minimise the impact of the closure on your child’s education.
Further information specific to your child will follow. However, in the meantime I would like to take this opportunity to thank you wholeheartedly for your understanding and ongoing support in helping us to manage this unprecedented situation.
