1. Face coverings

With effect from Wednesday 14th October 2020, all staff and students (except those for whom exceptions will be made on the grounds of disability or wellbeing) will be required to wear face coverings in the indoor communal areas of the Academy.

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 (eg at the start of every lesson).  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 in the communal areas of the Academy, 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.

2. School work from Home.
