Academy closure - Covid-19 - 2020

On Sunday 10 May, the government set out the next steps in England’s COVID-19 response.

Ever since Neale-Wade Academy closed on Wednesday 18 March we have been working on a plan to ensure that when we start to re-open it will be within a safe environment for pupils and staff.

The government’s plan set out an ambition to allow secondary school students with exams next year ‘at least some time with their teachers before the holidays’. Detailed guidance on how this would work will be set out by the government.

We look forward to seeing our students return to school and we will continue to ensure everything is ready and safe in the way which we feel is best for our school and community.

For the time being, students will stay at home for classes, unless their parents are classified as ‘key workers’.
