Here is a copy of the letter sent to all parents/ carers explaining special plans for all pupils during the refurbishment works at the academy during February and March 2019:
To all Parent / Carers
We are delighted that the proposed building developments at the academy will be going ahead during February and March. These building works will provide our pupils with new and much improved facilities.
To enable contractors’ access to the site and ensure the health, safety and welfare of pupils, the academy will need to be closed to students on Friday 15 February and Friday 8th March 2019.
The last day of term for pupils will be Thursday 14th February 2019.
We will welcome pupils back after the half term beak on Monday 25th February 2019 – pupils are asked to come to the Sports Barn entrance at the rear of the building as our reception area will not be accessible.
Whilst the building works are taking place here at the academy, we are putting in place personalised learning plans (from 25th February to 7th March 2019) to ensure that we continue to engage pupils in a full curriculum offer. Each pupil’s plan will include the core subjects (English, Maths, Science) and a variety of cross-curricular learning opportunities, PE (including outdoor learning and use of local facilities, such as the climbing wall at the Leisure Centre). A timetable for your child and full details will follow shortly.
Pupils will continue to be transported at the usual times and will arrive at the Stowmarket site, before being transported/escorted to their learning environment for that day.
For the majority of these days, we will only be able to provide packed lunches for pupils. We will look to incorporate hot meals for pupils where this is possible.
HALF TERM HOLIDAY
Half Term: Monday 18 February 2019 to Friday 22 February 2019: The academy will be closed to pupils and staff during this week. If you need to contact the academy during the half term break, please use email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will endeavour to keep you updated with progress and will let you know should there be any delays to the building work. We thank you in advance for your co-operation at a very exciting, but busy, time for the academy.
