School Reopening March 2021

School Reopening March 2021

We are delighted to welcome students back to the Academy from the week commencing 8th March 2021! There is some important information to be aware of before you return.

  • For the majority of students, face masks will need to be worn at all times (unless medically exempt). The Education Secretary clearly stated that ‘extending the use of face coverings to classrooms is a temporary measure until Easter, and that the government will keep it under review’. Therefore we must be rigorous with this rule- where students do not comply, parents will be contacted and may, in some cases, be asked to collect their child in order for them to continue their education from home.
  • If you have returned the COVID consent forms to the Academy, your child will be invited in for the start of their time slot to administer their COVID test during the week commencing 8th March. Students being tested will be sent their time slot via MyEd at least 24 hours in advance of their appointment. After confirming a negative result, students will join their lessons in school. Over a 2 week period, students with consent will be tested 3 times and then be given home testing kits to take home to do moving forward. Timetable of the 2 week testing period is below.

  • For students who do not have consent to have a COVID test they will return to school the day after their year group receives COVID tests. Time table below. This will be a full time return and students are expected to arrive at their normal times, through their normal gates.
