GCSE/A Level Exam Resits November 2021
Start Dates and Times – September 2021
Updated government guidelines require all schools to offer lateral flow tests when they return to the Academy in September to prevent the risk of infection. In order to ensure students are as safe as possible in the Academy we are going to use the first few days to test as many students as possible before we return full time. If you do need to escort your child to the Academy, we would ask that you leave your child at or near the gate, to socially distance and not congregate as a group.

We look forward to welcoming our new year 7 students who will be greeted at the gate by Stanground staff to take a lateral flow test in the Sports Hall. Students will then be directed to a classroom to complete the NGRT baseline reading test and have their school photo. Please ensure students are in full school uniform. We believe the overall process will take approximately two hours If you do not consent to your child completing a lateral flow test, please still ensure they come to the Academy for their allocated appointment time to complete the baseline reading test and photograph. We will only inform parents if the test is positive or if it needs to be retaken. Lateral flow test form can be found here, or please scan the QR code. From Monday 6 September onwards, Year 7 students will return to the Academy at 8:30am to begin a full timetable. The school day will finish at 3:00pm.

“The health, safety and wellbeing of our pupils and staff is our absolute priority. As an Academy, we take our duty of care extremely seriously and every decision is made with the best interests of our entire school community in mind.
“After being informed by Public Health England of confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the Academy, some pupils and staff are currently self-isolating as a precautionary measure, in line with the latest government advice. Throughout this period, we have been staying in regular contact with parents and carers and have been supporting our pupils through remote learning to ensure they continue to receive the best possible education during this unprecedented time.
“Following the half term break we will continue to follow the latest government guidelines and work closely with the local public health authority, ensuring our robust health and safety measures support the wellbeing of our pupils, staff and the wider school community. These measures include, but are not limited to, the year group bubbles we have had in place since the start of the academic year in line with government guidance, staggered start and finish times and the introduction of face masks in communal areas where social distancing cannot be easily maintained, such as during class transition periods.
“We appreciate this may be a challenging time for our school community and will continue to be in regular contact with our pupils, parents and staff to provide reassurance and up-to-date information. We also encourage anyone with concerns to contact the Academy directly so that we can provide the necessary support.”
