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 June 2020

We hope and pray that you and your families are keeping safe.

In line with government guidance, our primary academies have begun to provide an on-site educational offer to a limited number of children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.  All of our schools are also open to provide care for children of CRITICAL Key Workers.

St Francis and St Clare Catholic MAC academies continue to adopt strict social distancing protocols during this period.

Our staff remain committed to providing online learning resources for all pupils in all year groups and encourage you to stay in contact, via email, should you have any queries or wish to share any positive work and news.

Pupils in Years 10 and 12 will have increased face-to-face learning online, where staff will be teaching using technologies such as google classroom, google meet and microsoft teams.  Some pupils may be contacted by their school to have a more personalised face-to-face meeting prior to the summer term ending.

In the meantime, our staff are missing our pupils, and each other, very much.  We are incredibly grateful to parents and carers for their support and dedication in supporting their children with learning at home.  Please be reassured that we will continue to help your child now and in the weeks and months ahead.  We do not want parents, carers and pupils feeling anxious about missed learning or the situation we are in.  Please do not hesitate to contact your school for additional advice and support.  We are so much stronger together.

Wishing our community safety and well-being during this time.

With hope and prayers,

All at St Francis and St Clare Catholic Multi Academy Company
