Covid 19 Information

Please come back and check this page on a daily basis.

On this page we are listing all the important information for parents and pupils to be able to access learning from home. All the relvant documents below are available as downloads.


If your child is showing symptoms of Covid 19, do not send them to school. Please get them to take a PCR test (available from your GP) and they should only return to school when the test is negative.

Non-symptomatic pupil testing

All pupils of secondary school age should take 3 lateral flow COVID tests, a minimum of 3-5 days apart. The testing is to help find non symptomatic pupils who unbeknown to them are carrying COVID 19. If a positive result comes back then the normal isolation procedures would be followed. This will reduce any possible cross infection in schools, to families and the local community.

Although these tests are voluntary, it is the government's and our expectation that all children will take these tests as it will help the Academy open safely and reduce risk.

General information

The wearing of facemasks in school is no longer mandatory but if your child feels safer or is still required to wear a mask, that is acceptable.

We are maintaining all other safety measures, this includes the normal staggered starts and finishes, separate entrances / exits, year group bubbles, ventilation and regular hand washing.
