Health Information - COVID19
Update to parents/carers 1st April 2021 Good morning. I am hoping you have received a copy of our Easter newsletter. It is also on the website. I just wanted to stress a couple of points: • Please contact me (email@example.com) if your child develops any symptoms of Covid-19 within two days of the end of term (Friday and Saturday). • LFD Home testing – please continue the routine of twice weekly testing and reporting to NHS Test and Trace. • Please test your child on Sunday evening, 18th April, or Monday morning, 19th April, so that we can isolate any positive cases before the return to school. Free School Meal vouchers have been sent out to families for the two weeks of the holiday, today. We had hoped that face coverings would not be necessary in classrooms after Easter. However, we must await an announcement from the Prime Minister over the Easter period for any decisions regarding safety measures in schools. It has been a wonderful four weeks back together in school. Thank you for your support over this difficult term. Best wishes, Paula Hearle
The Local Academy Board has a strategic role in the management of the school, and its responsibilities include:
- To set the vision and strategic direction of the school
- Hold the Headteacher to account for the school’s educational performance
- To ensure financial resources are well spent
- To ensure statutory duties are met and priorities approved
The work of the Local Academy Board has been validated by Ofsted (February 2020), who stated that the governance of the school is strong and that governors understand curriculum development.
Undoubtedly, the impact of the Local Academy Board was a significant factor in the school being judged to be Good, as well as receiving a judgement of Good, in the SIAMS inspection of May 2017.
