  • End of Term Arrangements

    Published 14/12/20

    Dear Parent/Carer

    Please could I bring to your attention the arrangements for the end of term: -

    Following the Department for Education’s announcement on Tuesday 8th December 2020, we are following their guidance and designating Friday 18th December 2020 as an additional INSET day. The Autumn Term will therefore end on Thursday 17th December 2020.

    Thursday 17th December 2020 - Charity Day in the Academy

    Students should arrive at the normal time for their year group bubble.

    Students can choose to wear a Christmas jumper in support of the ‘Save the Children’ charity, they must however wear their normal academy uniform below, for example, their school skirt or trousers and black school shoes. Those choosing not to participate must wear academy uniform as normal. Students can pay their £1.00 charity donation at lunchtimes throughout next week.

    Students will be dismissed from the Academy at the end of the normal school day.

    Monday 4th January 2021 - All students will return at the normal time for their year group bubble.

    May I take this opportunity of wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

    We look forward to seeing all students in the academy on Monday 4th January 2021.

    Yours sincerely

    Mr AP Landers

  • A Message from the Principal

    Published 30/11/20

    We were fortunate to have a remote visit from OFSTED who wanted to discuss the challenges being faced by schools during the COVID pandemic. Two of Her Majesties Inspectors spent the day interviewing myself and senior staff via the internet on a range of issues from how we had safely returned pupils to a full time curriculum, managed learning whilst individuals were self-isolating and how we were supporting our young people to make up for lost time. I was incredibly proud to be able to talk about the significant number of initiatives we had put in place since the first lockdown in March. This information will now be fed into a wider research project resulting in further support being put in place for schools and young people nationally.

    On the subject of COVID we have had an increase in cases recently although I must say that this week that number has fallen dramatically. I am confident this is due to both the national lockdown and our own systems that are in place in the academy. I must commend our parents who have supported and worked with us when we have had a confirmed case which has allowed us to quickly identify close contacts and ensure the correct people are asked to self-isolate. Could I just ask however, that if your child is presenting symptoms you do not send them to academy and arrange for a test to be taken as soon as possible.

    To finish up, the Pegasus Christmas Tree is up early as we all thought we needed a lift in our spirits. Its only three weeks until we finish for the Christmas holiday and although it may be slightly different this year, I am looking forward to spending time with loved ones and family and hope you are too.

  • 26/11/20 - COVID-19 Confirmed Case​​​​​​​

    Published 26/11/20

    Dear Parent /Carer

    I am writing to inform you that today I received information that we have a learner in Year 11 who has tested positive for COVID-19.

    We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. The school remains open and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.

    Members of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) have acted swiftly to track and trace all learners and staff that have had ‘direct or close contact’ and instructed them to self-isolate for 14 days.

    I am currently working with Public Health Protection Team and with the Department for Education (DfE) to take the necessary steps to ensure that all staff and learners are safe.

    Whilst I appreciate that this will be unwelcomed news for some of our learners and their parents/carers, please be assured that our Distance Learning Programme will be implemented for all learners who are having to self-isolate. These learners should log onto the Academy website to access their learning for all subjects so that they can continue to access high quality provision.

    The academy remains open as normal to all year groups apart from those self-isolating or have a confirmed case of COVID-19.

    What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

    If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

    All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’.

    Further information is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19- stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronaviruscovid-19-infection

    Household members staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.

    If you are able, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period.

    Symptoms

    The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are the recent onset of:

    - a new continuous cough

    - a high temperature

    - a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

    For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

    If your child does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from the nhs.uk website at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/check-if-you-have-coronavirussymptoms/. If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek advice from NHS 111 at https://111.nhs.uk/ or by phoning 111.

    How to stop COVID-19 spreading

    There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19 Do

    - wash your hands with soap and water often

    – do this for at least 20 seconds

    - use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

    - wash your hands as soon as you get home

    - cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

    - put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards

    What you need to do:

    - If your child is isolating please ensure that they access their work on the Academy website, set by their teachers.

    - If your child is not self-isolating please ensure that they bring and wear a mask as they enter the academy building and any communal areas.

    Yours sincerely
