As a Multi-Academy Trust, we have used government guidance to form the basis of all our planning and decision making throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to help minimise the risk to our pupils and staff across our 15 academies.
Together we have identified the risks specific to each academy and have updated our COVID-19 Risk Assessment appropriately. For transparency, the following Risk Assessment provides you with the opportunity to view this academy's latest risk assessment that we will be following when our academies fully reopen in September.
As we are all aware, guidance and restrictions are regularly changing, and the impact of those changes may not be reflected in the document while it is going through amendment and review.
Your child’s safety is important to us, as is that of our staff. Please do not send your child into school if they are feeling unwell. If your child develops COVID-19 symptoms in school, they will be isolated and should be tested for the virus as soon as possible. Any siblings will also be sent home as a precautionary measure.
For the latest government advice for parents, please visit the government website.
We want to thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to work towards a safe return and getting “back to school”.
For PHIA parents: A short film to highlight some of the changes now in place to welcome your children back into the academy from September.
