Coronavirus Updates

5th January 

Following government guidance we are closed to all children, apart from vulnerable students and children of key workers.

The Government is asking parents to keep children at home whenever possible.

Are you a key worker? The Government has published the list of parents who are classed as key workers, you can find that list here.

The most important message is that if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.

Learn at Home

Your child’s continued learning is important to us, so we’ll continue to help your child to learn. We’ll continue to provide learning for students at home. As our staff begin to adapt to supporting your child remotely, we’ll be sending out more updates.

Useful resources

Children showing signs of symptoms:

Please follow this guidance when deciding whether to send your child to the Academy today and for the foreseeable future. The health and welfare of our students remains our top priority.

The latest advice is that if students are showing the following common symptoms of Coronavirus:

  • A new continuous cough
  • And / or a high temperature
  • And a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

They should self-isolate, however mild the symptoms, for a period of 14 days. If anyone else in the household shows symptoms of the Coronavirus disease, then the entire household should self-isolate for 14 days.

You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. Do not visit a GP surgery, pharmacy, or hospital. If a child becomes unwell whilst at the academy, they will be isolated and we will contact parents / carers to collect them.

You can use the NHS 111 Service online here.
