COVID 19 Daily Update - Monday 23 March 2020

The Academy feels eerily quiet this morning! To those embarking on their home learning activities, a pack has been put in the post for you and all the information you need to access codes etc is on the website under the COVID-19 tab.  It also includes a dedicated IT support email for those who are struggling.  Remember, learning takes many forms and we encourage you to be creative.  Our advice is have a clear routine for the weekdays so that they feel different to weekends. 

We will endeavour to remain open for all key worker children and our most vulnerable students.  But please be mindful of Gavin Williamson, the Education Secretary’s tweet at the weekend: “You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.” We will as far as possible put in strict social distancing protocols, but moving outside the home at the current time is a risk and should be limited to only essential journeys.
