On Monday 22nd February 2021 the government announced that:
On 4 January 2021 the government announced a national lockdown. You must stay at home.
Our school remains open for vulnerable children and the children of keyworkers.
With effect from Monday 8th March face coverings should be worn by everyone (unless exempt) in classrooms and during activities, unless social distancing can be maintained. This will not apply in situations where a face covering would impact on the ability to take part in exercise or strenuous activity, for example PE lessons. Face coverings do not need to be worn by pupils or students when outdoors on the premises.
All students must have a sealable plastic bag with them in school. Because students will need to clean their hands before and after taking the covering on or off . This means that they must have hand sanitiser with them in school at all times. There are some staff and students for whom wearing of face coverings would cause added difficulties and may not be appropriate. These may include:
i) Those who suffer from asthma
ii) Those who are on the autistic spectrum
iii) Those with heightened levels of anxiety
iv) Those with a physical disability which makes it hard to take the masks on and off
v) Those who provide support for a student or a member of staff who depends on lip reading
If your son or daughter falls into any of these categories and you would like them to be excused from wearing a face mask please contact their pastoral coordinator explaining the reason for your request:

The World Health Organisation has produced a useful short animation on how to use face coverings safely. We will be using this in school with students and would encourage you as parents to look at it with your son or daughter so that we can be are sure we are giving them the same messages about the steps they will need to take to ensure their safety and that of other members of the Academy community.
We have made working from home provisions for individuals or year groups who need to self- isolate. Please follow this link for more information.
