Wolverhampton City Restrictions
The Academy is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and its impact, and doing all we can to stay safe and reassure our staff and students. This statement will be regularly updated as the latest advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), World Health Organisation (WHO), DfE, Public Health England (PHE) and other sources becomes available.
Statement September 2020
Welcome back, it is wonderful to see our children and young people back in school, we have missed them. We continue to hope and pray that you and your families are keeping safe.
In line with government guidance, St Francis and St Clare Catholic MAC academies continue to adopt secure COVID19 measures to safeguard our children and young people.
As you will be aware, Wolverhampton is now an area of national intervention due to a sustained rise in COVID-19 cases.
New local arrangements have put in place legal restrictions that prevent households in Wolverhampton mixing with each other. These restrictions came into force on Tuesday 22nd September. Further details can be found in the following letter from Councillor Dr Hardacre.
Academies have published a statement on what may happen in the event of a partial or full closure due to COVID. This can be found on the individual school websites. There are also remote learning policies / additional information to inform you how our schools will be supporting remote, and where possible, live learning for pupils during part or full closures.
We are all working together to help protect each other and secure a high quality education during this time, and thank you greatly for your ongoing support.
We understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 can create worry and distress for our students and families. These feelings are normal and it’s important we acknowledge them and remind each other to look after our physical and mental health. There are many things that we can do to support and manage our wellbeing during these times.
