Reopening of schools
Reopening of the academy from w/c 8th March.
You will no doubt have seen the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday that schools will re-open fully, for all students, from Monday 8th March. The Government has given secondary schools discretion as to how they phase the return to school over that week, and we will write to all our families shortly with further details about how we will do this at OBA.
We are looking forward very much to having all students back in the academy, and want to assure everyone that – as has been the case throughout the coronavirus crisis – we will ensure the academy is as safe as it possibly can be. The health of all our students and staff, is the most important factor always for us.
The Government’s announcement indicates we are tentatively returning to normal. However, we want to reiterate how alert we are to the continued risk of Covid-19. We will continue to adhere to stringent health and safety measures now, and when fully open. Your support in helping us be as safe as possible is much appreciated and will help ensure we stay open to all students, and keep children, staff, and our wider families safe.
