Covid Update #3

Partial School Closure: Year 9

Update: 27 November 2020

Unfortunately, due to the number of Academy staff self-isolating next week we are again unable to open operationally to Year 9.

After taking advice given by Department for Education and Public Health England, we have made the decision to ask all year 9 students to remain at home for a further week from Monday 30 November to Friday 4 December.
Students should continue to access their learning remotely on ClassCharts

For parents who are eligible for Free School Meals for their child, packed lunch home deliveries will continue for those who requested them.

Please send any enquiries to the Year 9 Manager: matthew.orridge@bulwellacademy.org.uk
or

Thank you for your continued support in a very difficult time.

Face Coverings in School

Covid-19 Update: 13 October 2020

A Special Update from the Principal

Face coverings must be worn Anti-Slip Floor Sticker | Social Distancing  Floor Stickers | Safety Signs and Notice

Given that Nottinghamshire is now an area where local restrictions apply, we need to change the emphasis on wearing face coverings in school. Although I still cannot mandate this fully, I must now insist that where possible staff and students wear face coverings / visors on corridors and in communal areas.

Student Expectations

From Wednesday 14 October all students should attend school with a face covering / visor.

Face coverings should be worn correctly over the nose and mouth.

Please let us know if your child is exempt from wearing a face covering.

When do I need to wear a face covering / visor?

  • In the morning during the line-up process before entering the building.
  • Before leaving the classroom or dining room
  • After break times during the line up process before re-entering the building

Students may wear a face covering / visor in class if they wish, provided they are wearing it correctly over both the nose and mouth.

When do I NOT need to wear a face covering / visor?

  • When you arrive at school before the line-up process
  • Once you are seated in the classroom or dining room
  • When you are out the front of the school during break times
  • When you leave school once you are out the front or out the back (depending on your departure route)
