Academy Closure following Government Announcement

Monday 4th January 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

Government Announcement this evening

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, from 5th January 2021, our academy will provide on-site education for the children of critical workers and vulnerable children only.

For all other children, we will move to providing remote education.  For tomorrow only, we would encourage your child to read and take advantage of online materials, to allow our staff time to prepare a comprehensive package of remote learning.    

Given the short notice, for tomorrow only, we would ask critical workers to only take up this place if you are scheduled to work tomorrow and have no other alternative. We are asking for your support in this to allow us to put arrangements in place for children and staff in light of tonight’s changes.   

Moving forward, we will of course welcome children of key workers and those children from vulnerable groups.  We will provide further details as soon as we can.

Thank you for your continued support on these unprecedented times.

Yours sincerely,


Helen Prout

Head of Academy
