Following the emergency lockdown announcement yesterday evening by the Prime Minister, many of you will be anxious about the next steps that will be taken by the Government and the measures going forwards. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that, once again, the Academy and the Trust will do everything we can to maintain the safety of all students and staff across our sites.
From today, Tuesday, 5 January 2021, all of our academies will be closed in line with government guidance, except for children of key workers and vulnerable children, until February half term.
Full details of our closure is detailed in the letters from the Principal and the Trust CEO, which have been published today and can be downloaded below.
