Where Learning has no limits

LATEST NEWS - SEPTEMBER 2020 - Message for parents/carers of pupils attending: - Haughton Academy - Springfield Academy - Gurney Pease Academy - Beaumont Hill Academy - Marchbank Free School

All of our Academies have re-opened for the new academic year.  A huge amount of preparation has been undertaken to ensure our pupils and staff are safe as they can be, and staff are ready to support any children who find the changes difficult, or who need help in any way.  In all our academies, pupils are not allowed to mix across year groups in the way they have previously.  This restriction is a crucial part of the plan to manage movement and contact, and so restrict the spread of the virus.  So that parents work with us towards this aim, we ask that you continue not to visit any of our academies without an appointment.  Parents can still drop off and collect their children, but please pay particular attention to the start and end time for their day, and aim to arrive only at the given time. 

If you need to speak with a member of staff, it is important that you contact your child’s school by phone or email and, if necessary, a phone or video appointment can be made for you to discuss any issues in more detail.  Please do not come to any Academy Reception to pass on a message or seek advice.  Face-to-face meetings can only take place where they are critical and no other method is suitable.

Thank you for your continued co-operation. We really appreciate your understanding at this difficult time.
