Coronavirus Update: RISK ASSESSMENT FOR PHASED REOPENING JUNE 2020

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday 10th May it remains unclear when secondary schools in England will reopen for all pupils. Although this is desperately disappointing, the wellbeing, health and safety of our community must be a non-negotiable priority. It was announced, however, that there is an ambition that Year 10 and Year 12 pupils will return prior to the summer holidays so contact with teachers and friends takes place before pupils enter their examination years in September. We anticipate more announcements and detail over these plans in the coming week and will, of course communicate, with you when details are confirmed. Please be assured that staff have worked hard from home to finalise plans to allow Year 10 and Year 12 pupils to return to the academy, safely, so no time will be lost once a date for return is announced.

Pupils who are currently at home have been given work and should use their time productively during the days they would normally have been learning at the academy. Please log in to Show My Homework HERE to access the work your child must complete; it is essential that all work is completed so they do not fall behind, academically, during the period of closure. Please also be aware that the academy reception is open daily from 8am – 3:30pm so please do not hesitate to telephone us should you have any concerns or need support with home learning, safeguarding or any other matter pertaining to your child’s learning or welfare.

Please also be sure that you are monitoring your child’s use of online resources as it is especially important that we safeguard children at a time when their use of online resources has increased exponentially. The DfE have added a section on keeping children safe online in its current guidance. It provides links to online resources that will help support parents and carers; full details can be found in section 6.3 of the guidance for parents and carers on the closure of educational settings which can be found here.

The staff and pupils of Mossbourne Community Academy offers immeasurable thanks to all key workers especially NHS staff including auxiliary staff, doctors, cleaners, paramedics and nurses who are going above and beyond to keep us all safe and healthy during this time of worry and turmoil.

A special salute to the many Mossbourne alumni who have entered medical professions and stand shoulder to shoulder with NHS colleagues. We are proud of you beyond words – you are giving back more than we ever imagined possible.

Please be assured that we are committed to ensuring that we do all within our power to reduce the impact of the closure on pupil learning and attainment and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support during this difficult time.

Miss R Warren, Principal
