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.
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)
Given the increased number of parent/carer calls we have been receiving concerning illness, Covid-19 symptoms and testing, the Principal has issued further guidance in the letter below. We hope this helps to clarify matters in these uncertain times.
Would you like to have your say in how the Academy operates? We would like to recruit parents/carers from each Year Group to work with us to give input to new ideas and projects, and to share your ‘parent insight’ to inform the Academy’s leadership.
The Parents’ Advisory Group (PAG) is led by the Academy’s Principal, Mrs Strong, and supported by the Academy’s Community Lead, Mrs Abbott. The group meets three times per year. If you are interested in joining the PAG, please contact the Principal’s PA, Mrs Sadler.
