Return to school – Update

Dear Parent/Carer

I hope you have managed to enjoy Christmas and that this finds you and your family well.  Further to the communications sent on Wednesday 23 December 2020 and Tuesday 29 December 2020, please find below a summary of some key points:-

  1. Alford Academy will be open to staff only on Tuesday 5 January 2021.
  2. On-line learning for all young people will commence on Monday 11 January 2021 and will continue until at least Monday 18 January 2021.  Pupils will not return to learning on campus until at least Monday 18 January 2021 with the exception of pre-registered children of keyworkers and vulnerable children.
  3. Children of keyworkers and vulnerable children may attend school from Wednesday 6 January 2021 for learning and childcare during normal school operating hours. The keyworker definitions were issued in the communication of 23/12/20.  Both parents would require to be category 1 or 2 workers (or one in a single parent household).  Transport and catering will be available for these pupils.   The ’Education and Children’s Services Registration for School Attendance (Key Workers)’ form can be accessed via Registration Form .    Forms must be completed and submitted before 12pm on Monday 4 January 2021. You will need to submit one form for each of your children.
  4. Any pupils/staff who have Covid-19 symptoms/are unwell and/or are self-isolating must not attend school.

Further information will follow.  In the meantime I wish you all the best as we head towards 2021.
