Our Week - 26th - 30th April 2021

Sunday 02 May 2021

Principal's Summary

This week we say goodbye to someone who has been a part of the academy for three years. Mr Haskins will be moving on to pursue a different career path (and a hugely healthy focus on his quality of life!) in his home town of Brighton. We respect his commitment to travelling to us every day for the last three years but have no doubt he will feel the difference. Now 10minute cycle along the Brighton promenade will feel a little different, we are sure, but we wish him the very best for the future. 

LINE ETIQUETTE

Please respect each other and the requests of the school

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.
