Remote Learning from Tuesday 5 January 2021 for All Year Groups

Dear Parent/Carer,

 

Following the government’s announcement yesterday evening and to my previous end of term communication, I am writing to inform you of some important changes regarding next week’s return for all our students.

From Tuesday 5th January 2021, ALL year groups will be required to access online learning, attending online live lessons. Please note Monday 4th January is a staff training day. 

Further information regarding this will be shared with you via email on Monday. I will also be able to share detailed information with regards to the school Covid testing which will commence from Monday 11th January.

Years 11, 12 & 13 will return on Monday 11th January 2021. All other year groups will continue to access online learning and are due to return on Monday 18 January 2021. However, this could be subject to change based on the government guidelines regarding COVID-19 and transmission rates in our area. 

Finally, please note parents/carers of vulnerable children/key workers are to attend the Academy from Tuesday 5th JanuaryEvidence will need to be provided if you are a key worker and if you fulfil the criteria set by the Department of Education.
