Dear Parent/ Carer,
I am writing to update you regarding the current situation with Covid – 19 / Coronavirus. We are receiving regular updates from the Department for Education and Public Health England and will continue to pass on all their advice to you.
Our academy remains open and we intend to continue with all of our activities for as long as the advice tells us to do so. We currently have no confirmed cases of Covid-19/ Coronavirus within the academy community.
We have no specific information about any intention for school/ academy closures but are working on plans to ensure we can provide the best education possible for all our students any time the academy may close. To enable us to plan effectively and provide good support to you, it would be helpful for us to know which of our students and their families have limited IT access from home.
Please could you call the academy office on 01449 613931 if:
- You have Wifi/ Broadband access at home but no access to a tablet or computer.
- You have no or limited Wifi/ Broadband access at home.
Please be assured we will continue to be transparent with you over any information we receive that may affect our community. For now the best advice is that we all keep talking to our young people about washing hands and good hygiene. The first thing they should do when they get home is to wash their hands thoroughly. All our staff are ready to provide any support or advice you may need.
Associate Headteacher, Olive AP Academy – Suffolk
