Our Week - 19-23rd April 2021

Sunday 25 April 2021

Principal's Summary

Next week is a big week for the academy - we are moving one step closer to normality. As you are aware, we will try returning to normal(ish) hours from Monday. Making these changes is a massive step for the school and us as a community. We are making every possible effort to make this as safe as possible and have provided broad time windows for collection to allow a wide dispersal of arrival times. 

We hope this starts to provide more learning time for all our year groups and takes the pressure off some of our hard-pressed families with children across the age ranges. 

These steps are a trial phase and rely on us working together, so please respect the expectations of the academy. 

  • Please use the entirety of the arrival window DONT all arrive at 1520 
  • Respect the line - don't push in - if you are causing an issue in the line, you are compromising the safety of the academy community. We will take the matter seriously. 
  • Please wear a face-covering in the line unless you are exempt; it keeps us all safe.
  • Please move through the site quickly and do not stop for social reasons or provide snacks or adjust clothing for your child. They can wait the 3 minutes until you are offsite; the people are waiting behind you in the line can not. 

COVID Plans:

Please ensure you inform us as quickly as possible if you keep your child out of school with suspected symptoms. 

As it stands, we have no pupils self-isolating, and the staff testing programme is in full swing. 

However, we are aware that in other parts of Croydon and nearby parts of other boroughs, the Brazillian strain has been identified, so keep vigilant.
