Following the government’s Omicron COVID variant announcements, we are updating the Academy’s COVID guidance.  From Monday 29 November 2021 all students, staff and visitors must wear a face mask or suitable face covering when in any indoor communal space, unless they are exempt.  Please provide your child with a mask.  We have a limited supply of masks available on site to replace any lost or damaged masks.

Further, it is again compulsory for students to where masks when travelling to and from the Academy on dedicated school transport and on public transport.  They may be refused travel if they do not wear a mask.

Please also ensure that your child continues to Lateral Flow Test twice a week.  We recommend a test on a Sunday evening and a Wednesday evening.  If your child tests positive, please let us know as soon as possible, and book a PCR test.  Your child should then self isolate until the result of the PCR is known.  If the PCR test is positive then your child should continue to isolate and if the test is negative, and your child is well, they should return to the Academy.

Thank you for your support in keeping our Academy community safe.
