Staying Covid-19 Secure BPA
Greenwood Academies Trust is monitoring daily updates and advice from the UK Government in regards to Coronavirus. We are keeping our Principals updated with the Government’s latest recommended measures to keep pupils and staff safe. Although the risk to individuals remains low, and we have not had any issues within our Academies, as always the active involvement of the whole Academy community in maintaining good hygiene practices will be vital in minimising the chances of any viruses spreading.
Our Principals will keep pupils, parents and staff advised of any necessary arrangements as soon as practicable in relation to daily Academy activity and any visits overseas. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and issue any updated Government guidance to Principals.
The Department of Health and Public Health England are advising extra precautions for people returning from a number of areas overseas and all our Academies will be following this guidance which can be found here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public, along with a list of affected countries. If any members of your family, including pupils, visit any of the listed countries or are visited by people coming to the UK from these countries, they should follow the advice in the link above.
We have been made aware of some great resources to support mental health and emotional well-being during these unusual times. Please have a look if you wish - they look very useful. A section relating to Coronavirus may be very helpful.

Parents and carers attended an assembly led by the Year 4 class to celebrate the Harvest.
The pupils performed Harvest songs, shared poetry and writing about the event and expressed the importance of collecting food for the local food bank for those less fortunate.
Our other classes joined in too, with a vibrant rendition of the 'Harvest Samba' and 'Autumn Days'.
Please come along if your child is starting school in September 2018 to meet the staff and have a look round the classroom. We look forward to welcoming you.
We held our annual MacMillan event on Friday 29th September. Parents and carers joined us for tea and cake and we raised an amazing amount of £338! Thank you to everyone who supported the event by making or eating the cakes!
In July 2017, the Trust launched its ‘Your Character Counts’ strategy which places an emphasis on providing opportunities for students to develop important character traits and employability skills.
