Dear Parents and Carers,
Following on from my letter to you this morning we have reviewed our current staffing levels and unfortunately we will be unable to accommodate all students in the academy tomorrow and Friday.
This is not a decision I have taken lightly but one that I must take in order to ensure that the Academy can continue to remain open.
I have therefore decided to close the Academy to year 8 learners ONLY on Thursday 19th March 2020 and year 9 learners ONLY on Friday 20th March. This means that if your child is in year 8 they will need to stay at home tomorrow but come to school on Friday and if they are in year 9 they will need to come to school tomorrow and stay at home Friday.
I will review our position again on Friday and update you with regards to any partial closure next week.
If your child is in either year 8 or 9, you are a key worker (i.e. you work for one of the organisations below) and them being at home will pose a problem with childcare that means you will not be able to attend work and support local services at this difficult time,
please email enquiries@noelbakeracademy.co.uk with your child’s name and your place of work so that we can work with you to ensure that together we keep services running.
At this time we are defining a key worker as someone who works for:
- An educational establishment (including: teachers, teaching assistants, support members of staff in schools, nursery nurses and pre-school staff)
- The Police (including call room staff)
- The Armed Forces
- The NHS
- Fire Service Personnel
- Social Care (including care workers in homes for the elderly and vulnerable adults)
- Those who work in the food supply industry (supermarket staff & those who work transporting fuel and food)
I know that this decision will have a knock effect for many other parents, however my first priority must be to the safe and effective running of the Academy for as long as possible and in working with other agencies to support the work of all vital services at this difficult moment in time.
As set out in my letter this morning we are asking that where possible those students who remain in school on Thursday and Friday bring a packed lunch and are dressed in their PE kit. This is to allow us to ensure that our kitchens can remain open and where it may be necessary we can run larger than normal activities with the minimum of disruption.
Thank you for all of your support and understanding.
Kind Regards,
Mrs Donaghy
