Guidance regarding face coverings

Given the government’s recommendation that, where other protective measures cannot be adhered to e.g. social distancing in communal areas, masks should be worn by students and staff. Staff will have face masks and we highly recommend that students wear them in these areas. One must be worn on public transport or home/school transport. We have purchased masks and visors for all staff and spare masks for students where needed.

Staggered timings

We are conscious of minimising pinch-points and potential student gatherings such as at the start and end of the day both in school and in the local community. Therefore, we have introduced staggered start and finish times for the academy day.


It is important that students arrive as close to the arrival time as possible, to ensure they are punctual for lessons, but also to restrict contact with other bubbles and prioritise safe distancing. Post-16 students should arrive via the Library gate, and it is restricted to this year group only to support distancing.
