North Entrance

 

It is imperative that students enter and exit the building through the entrance and exit point specified for their Year Group.

Main Entrance

Students enter the Academy through the pedestrian gate by the drop-off zone at the front of the Academy then proceed down the path.

North Entrance

Students enter the Academy through the gate to the right of the pedestrian gate (at the far end of the drop-off zone) then proceed along the path between the Grace Payne Inspiration Centre and Quest towards the main building.

Parents/Carers

Parents/carers must remain in their vehicles in the drop-off zone, and we’d ask that windows remain closed when using the drop-off zone. Only parents/carers with a pre-booked appointment will be permitted on site, and they will be given clear instructions on which entrance to use, they must then proceed to the Reception to sign-in as a visitor.

 

Procedures

  • Students will wear full Business Dress as normal. On days when they have Wellbeing Active/PE, students will wear their Sports Kit to the Academy all day, changing facilities are not available on site;
  • Face coverings should be removed upon arrival at the Academy;
  • Students who have no alternative to using public transport should follow government guidance when travelling;
  • Students will line up outside the building at the appropriate time for their Year Group. Students will be met and escorted into the building each day;
  • Each Year Group has been allocated a zone or teaching rooms within the Academy, they must remain in these areas at all times;
  • Students will not be able to use lockers. Students will need to ensure that they have all of the equipment required for their lessons each day. Where possible equipment should not be shared. If this is not possible the equipment will be wiped down between lessons (i.e. ICT, Photography);
  • Hand washing facilities will be available on entry to the Academy. Students will be expected to maintain regular hand hygiene throughout the day, so we expect all students to provide and carry a bottle of hand sanitiser;
  • At the end of the day, students need to leave the site immediately at their end time.

Break and Lunch Times

  • Students will be encouraged to use the outdoor space provided for their Key Stage;
  • Localised one way systems, entry and exits will be in operation and clearly signed;
  • Lunch will be pre-ordered during Tutor Time, there will be a choice of hot meal or a sandwich meal (vegetarian options available) – please use ParentPay if possible;
  • Lunch for Years 7-9 will be delivered to students at lunchtime to eat in their classrooms;
  • Lunch for Years 10-13 will be available for students to collect and eat in Quisine;
  • At break time there will be no snack service in Quisine. Students are encouraged to bring in a healthy snack/drink to consume at break time.

Hygiene and Cleaning

  • All classrooms are deep cleaned daily, and toilets hourly;
  • All tables are wiped with cleaning solution at the end of each specialist session;
  • Hand sanitiser is available in all teaching spaces;
  • Students will be expected to respect the areas allocated to their Year Group;
  • Students will be expected to respect the marked zones within their allocated room.

We will review this plan on an ongoing basis in consultation with appropriate authorities and will make amendments where necessary; we will endeavour to communicate any major changes as soon as we are able.
