What are the absence procedures for COVID-related situations?

The main symptoms for COVID-19 are detailed on the NHS website.

The latest advice, issued on Monday 21 February, says ‘Adults and children who test positive will continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 full days, and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received 2 negative test results on consecutive days.’

What are the plans for vaccinating school-aged children?

The School Immunisations Team has already visited the academy to offer the vaccine. If your child missed this, you can book on to the national programme.

How does home learning work?

Any students self-isolating and able to study will be asked to follow a programme of home learning via Google Classroom.

What are we doing to keep the academy and its students safe?

Students, staff and visitors should regularly and thoroughly wash their hands and/or use the hand sanitising pumps around the academy.
