Where Learning has no limits

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

The Government has asked Parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and directed schools to remain open
only for those children who absolutely need to attend.  This means that from Monday 23 March all our Academies can only allow pupils who meet very specific criteria to attend.  The criteria includes pupils who are vulnerable and those where a parent or named carer is classed as a Key Worker.  The Government has published a list of Key Worker roles and this can be found here.

Our Academies are now closed for all other pupils and it is important they stay at home in order to limit further spread of the virus.  If you are in any doubt about whether your child can continue to attend, please call their Academy, and if necessary leave a message.  Someone will get back to you as soon as they are able.  Please do not visit your Academy or School or send your child without our agreement.  

Any information about changes to these arrangements will be sent via text, published on this website and via the schools’ official social media (e.g. Facebook, FROG, Marvellous Me – whichever your Academy uses). 

Further official advice can be found at Government advice on Coronavirus and Public Health England advice on Coronavirus

Thank you for your co-operation at this very difficult time.
