Covid-Closure Update

Dear Parent/Carer

Congratulations to you all for managing Home Study for your children over the last two weeks. We have received so many positive comments from you all about the work that has been set. Please can you continue to encourage your child to engage with their learning and submit all completed work to their teachers via Google Classroom or email. There are paper copies of resources available should you need them. Please let us know if you require these by contacting the Academy by email on or by telephone on 01642 763244.

The Academy will remain open over the Easter holidays for children of Front-line workers and vulnerable children so that parent and carers can continue to keep the country moving during these challenging times. A huge thank you goes to all those staff who have volunteered to come into the Academy so that we can stay open. The school day will start and finish at the usual times of 8.40am -2.45pm over the holidays.

Over Easter, we have compiled a host of fun-filled, family-orientated activities to keep your children occupied. From Family Olympics to Historical Hats, we are hoping you all enjoy working together on these. We would love to publish your Easter achievements on our website so if you have photographs or even a video to share, please pass it on. An enormous thank you goes to those families who have already send us posts of Home Study achievements.
