Christmas Closure 2020

As per my letter to you dated 9th December, on the advice of the Department for Education, Enhance Academy Trust, the multi-academy trust that we are part of, has decided to close all of its academies at the end of the school day on Thursday 17th December.

Closing our school one day early will allow us to help restrict the spread of the Covid-19 virus and help us complete additional track and trace responsibilities before Christmas Eve. 

 

Monday 14th December to Thursday 17th December (inclusive):  school open

Friday 18th December:  school closed

Monday 4th January:  school re-opens for the Spring Term

Please refer to the guidance below regarding confirmed positive tests for coronavirus (COVID-19) during the Christmas closure:

 

  • If a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should not be contacted. Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.
  • If a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school, please contact the school using our text messaging service.  We will then assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in school.
