Year 7 temporary move to remote learning on Monday 28 March 2022

25 March 2022 

Dear Parent/Carer 

Re: Year 7 temporary move to remote learning on Monday 28 March 2022 

I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. 

Unfortunately, as  a  result  of  staff shortages due  to  illnesses, we have made the difficult  decision for Year 7 to move to remote learning on Monday 28 March 2022. Year 7 students should not attend the Academy on this day. 

The local area is also experiencing a shortage of supply teachers to cover staff who are unwell which sadly  means  we  are  unable  to keep the Year 7 group open Monday. 

Again,  please  be  reassured  that  if  you  are  receiving  this  letter,  your  child  did  not  come  into  close proximity with any affected persons within their year group.  

To ensure minimal disruption to learning, work will be set for students via Teams. If your child is unable to access these provisions via any device (including a phone) please contact the House Team.  

Additionally, if you are in receipt of free school meals, we will be in touch over the next couple of days to ensure we can get vouchers to you. If you are classed as a Key Worker/ Vulnerable and require additional support please contact Ms Barry, jbarry@stangroundacademy.org.  

In the meantime, I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of the steps that we can all take to reduce the risk of spreading infection. These simple measures are: 

  • washing your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds  

  • using hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available 

  • washing your hands as soon as you get home 

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

  • putting used tissues in the bin immediately and washing your hands afterwards  

We are continuing to monitor and review the situation and we are working hard to find a resolution. We would  like  to  thank  you  for  your  ongoing  support  during  this  time. If  you  have  any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Academy. 

Yours faithfully 

Mr Carlile 

Principal
