As you will be aware from the latest news, the Government has decided that the country will remain in the ‘containment’ phase, following its emergency Cobra meeting today. This means that a decision has been taken not to close schools, we will therefore continue to be vigilant and ensure the highest standards of hygiene are adhered to by our staff, students and visitors to the Academy.
We also understand that you may be concerned about forthcoming external examinations. Ofqual (the body that regulates exams, tests and qualifications in England) has advised schools to continue to prepare for exams and other assessments as normal.
If the situation changes, we will of course inform you immediately.
