Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Information
The government has now given the go ahead for schools in England to reopen for all students in September 2020.
Returning to School Safely
The Academy has implemented a host of safety measures to ensure that both staff and students remain as safe as possible whilst at school. These include temperature testing for all people who enter the site, extensive hygiene routines and social distancing protocols. Please watch our safety video to familiarise yourself with our safety protocols.
New Start Times for Students for September 2020
All students will return to the Academy in September in line with government expectation. In order to keep students and staff safe, the Academy will implement a new staggered start and end time for each of the Year Groups to maintain the integrity of the Year Group bubbles.
Attendance and Safety
All students will be expected to arrive at their allocated time and line up outside the Academy, next to the MUGA, standing on the socially distanced markers (yellow lines) and await instruction. Sixth Form students will stand on the red markers. On entry, students will sanitise their hands and again on exit and must go home immediately to complete any work set.
Normal attendance protocols must be followed. If students are unable to attend school, parents/carers must call the attendance line (020 222 6000) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to report a student absence by 7:30am.
Face Covering/Facemask in Communal Areas
We will be expecting all students and staff to wear a mask in communal spaces and whilst walking through corridors or transitioning to a specialist class space. Parents should ensure that their child has a face covering with them as part of their everyday school equipment.
Canteen and Dining
The Academy will be providing a full canteen service as normal. Lunch and break will be in Year Group bubbles. The meals are designed to be both nutritious, as well as, easily and quickly served. There will be increased ‘grab and go’ options so students can dine outdoors, as well as in the canteen.
