The government guidance has made it clear that we need to try to keep groups of students separate and that we need to stagger
start and end times and break and lunch times. We understand that if you have more than one child at the academy then it is
difficult if they have different start and end times so we have tried to minimise the length of time of our staggers.
We will have different entrances for different groups of students. See the table below for more detail.
* Year 11 will finish at this time for the week only. Following this, there will be a compulsory period 6, further
details are below.
There are a couple of things that you must be aware of. As we need to keep students separate, we will not be able to run our
usual breakfast club. The student gate will open 10 minutes before students’ allocated start times and students cannot come on
site before then. If you are really struggling, it may be possible that we could run early morning supervision to help if you
are able to drop your child off before their start time.
Secondly, from this academic year on Monday-Thursdays we have added an extra period on to the day for Year 11 students.
This period will be taught and will be a great opportunity for students to start to catch up on some of the learning that
they have missed out on. This is compulsory for all Year 11 students and will start from Monday 7 September. We will also
use this period 6 for other intervention/ catch up sessions. If your child is involved in these then we will let you know.
Other than these intervention sessions, there will be no enrichments. Again, we understand that you may have a child in Year
11 and a child lower down the school so them having different end times would be difficult. If you are really struggling,
it may be possible that we can run after school supervision for lower school students.
