A CHANGE TO FREE SCHOOL MEALS
You should only send your child to school if you have to because your work is critical to the Covid-19 response.
Greenwood Academies Trust is monitoring daily updates and advice from the UK Government in regards to Coronavirus. We are keeping our Principals updated with the Government’s latest recommended measures to keep pupils and staff safe. Although the risk to individuals remains low, and we have not had any issues within our Academies, as always the active involvement of the whole Academy community in maintaining good hygiene practices will be vital in minimising the chances of any viruses spreading.
Our Principals will keep pupils, parents and staff advised of any necessary arrangements as soon as practicable in relation to daily Academy activity and any visits overseas. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and issue any updated Government guidance to Principals.
The Department of Health and Public Health England are advising extra precautions for people returning from a number of areas overseas and all our Academies will be following this guidance which can be found here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public, along with a list of affected countries. If any members of your family, including pupils, visit any of the listed countries or are visited by people coming to the UK from these countries, they should follow the advice in the link above.
The Academy will close from Thursday 19th March at 3:30pm.
An email has been sent to all parents with further details. A copy of this letter can be found on our website under Parent Information/Letters to Parents.
Thank you for your understanding.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - ALL teacher led after school clubs are CANCELLED until further notice.
Following the latest advice from the Government, a decision has been made to cancel all parent pop ins, parents evenings, events and swimming until further notice.
Please see our calendar and emails sent out. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Many thanks to all our parents for your generosity.
On Friday 13th March children can come to school in mufti sports wear for a donation of £1.00 for Sport Relief.
Reception Class to Year 6 will all be attending the ‘Kid Lit’ Festival in Oundle again this year.
The Festival takes place over 5 days with various author sessions planned for different age ranges.
World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March this year. To celebrate, each child from Nursery up to Year 6 will receive a wonderful book to bring home with them.
As it is also ‘National Science Week’, we have arranged for ‘Professor Bubbleworks’ to come in and provide an amazing assembly and workshops for each year group throughout the day.
We have therefore given World Book Day a scientific theme this year. Please see list of books with links to science below. We would like to encourage children to read one of these books, or any other book with a link to science. Children can come to school dressed as one of their favourite characters.
