Dear parent carer

Monday 9 December – Full closure for KS3 only

I am writing to advise you that we have reluctantly decided to close KS3 all day on Monday 9 December.  This applies to years 7-9 only.  The Academy will remain open for KS4 and KS5.

 

We continue to have major issues with staffing, with nearly one third of teachers off sick today.  I am already aware that I have a high number of staff certified as sick for Monday, meaning that we will be unable to cover classes effectively. 

 

However, by having years 10-13 in school we can continue to provide these exam groups with a quality experience.

 

I expect all students to return to the Academy on Tuesday 10 December.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Kind regards

 

Alison Downey

Principal
