Please see below a letter regarding school re-opening.
Monday 1st June 2020
To all parents and carers associated with
Ad Astra Academy Trust
On behalf of the Trustees of Ad Astra Academy Trust I would just like to thank you for your support during this pandemic. You have had to balance child-care, home learning and for many of you, this has been alongside working from home. I have to say how impressed I have been with the amazing examples of home learning I have seen on social media.
Our Trustees confirmed today that for some year groups partial wider re-opening will start as planned on 8th June. I know your headteacher has already been in touch with you regarding which year groups start first.
One of our Trust values is ‘Togetherness’ and never has this been more evident in the collaborative work I have evidenced in the last few months. Ad Astra Academy Trust since the lockdown has seen over 2000 sessions accessed by children of key workers and those who are vulnerable.
I understand you will be very nervous about your child returning to school, but I can promise you the thought and planning that has gone into this has been incredible. The safety of our pupils and our staff is paramount. Each school is currently completing a detailed risk assessment. These will be shared with you on the school website prior to opening.
Once again, as we commence the final half term of the academy year, thank you for everything you have done and will continue to do, we will get through this together.
Andy Brown OBE
Chief Executive Officer
