  • School Closure & Key Worker Provision

    Published 24/07/20

    School closure and Key Worker Provision

    With effect from Wednesday 6th January 2021, pupils (except for key workers and others who meet the vulnerable criteria) are asked to remain at home and commence remote learning (via dojo and Teams or request a paper pack) with immediate effect.

     

    Remote Learning

    The teachers and support staff will have been in contact with you to share logins and other information required to allow yourselves and pupils to access the online materials. Staff will be keeping in very regular contact and supporting with any issues that may arise. 

    The Trust have created some how to videos for parents on accessing the platform at home. They are on the main GAT website.

    We are currently awaiting further information from the Trust and Government regarding vouchers for pupils who are eligible for free school meals and not attending school.  We will contact you as soon as we have details.

     

    Key Worker and Vulnerable Pupil Provision

    For those pupils who have been allocated a place in the provision, we are aiming to keep things as normal as possible.

    • The usual allocated entrances and start/finishes times will be the same
    • Pupils will be expected to wear full school uniform (PE kit on allocated PE days and Forest school kit on Forest school days)
    • Pupils may bring packed lunches or order a hot dinner from school
    • Pupils may bring a water bottle

    We thank you for your patience and continued support at this challenging time.

  • Coronavirus information (including FSM)

    Published 26/02/20

    Greenwood Academies Trust is monitoring daily updates and advice from the UK Government in regards to Coronavirus. We are keeping our Principals updated with the Government’s latest recommended measures to keep pupils and staff safe. Although the risk to individuals remains low, and we have not had any issues within our Academies, as always the active involvement of the whole Academy community in maintaining good hygiene practices will be vital in minimising the chances of any viruses spreading. 

     Our Principals will keep pupils, parents and staff advised of any necessary arrangements as soon as practicable in relation to daily Academy activity and any visits overseas. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and issue any updated Government guidance to Principals. 

     The Department of Health and Public Health England are advising extra precautions for people returning from a number of areas overseas and all our Academies will be following this guidance which can be found here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public, along with a list of affected countries. If any members of your family, including pupils, visit any of the listed countries or are visited by people coming to the UK from these countries, they should follow the advice in the link above.
