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 January 2021
In line with government guidance, St Francis and St Clare Catholic MAC academies continue to adopt secure COVID-19 measures to safeguard our children and young people.
The Prime Minister has announced a national lockdown and instructed people to stay at home to control the virus, protect the NHS and save lives.
The decision follows a rapid rise in infections, hospital admissions and case rates across the country, and our hospitals are now under more pressure than they have been at any other point throughout the pandemic.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January 2021, only children of critical workers and vulnerable children and young people should attend school or college. All other pupils and students will receive remote education. Should you consider yourself to be a Critical Worker and require your school to consider being able to provide on site provision for your child – please contact the Principal / academy.
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.
