5th June 2020
Dear Mums, Dads and Carers,
On Monday 1st June, both academies partially reopened their education provision to children in Year 6 in accordance with STEP Academy Trust guidance. We have both been hugely impressed by the positive way that the children and parents of Year 6 have coped with the changes in the learning environment and in school routines that we have had to implement in order to address the principle that ‘the safety of children and staff will be our top priority’ which was set out by the CEO of STEP in his recent letter to parents. Each academy also opened their own childcare provision at their respective academies which had previously been jointly run from Phoenix. The provisions at both academies will continue to offer childcare for the children of keyworkers and those who are classed as vulnerable in accordance with government guidelines. Our thanks also go to the staff at both academies who continue to work tirelessly to support our school community.
