    • Updated guidance for education settings on coronavirus (COVID-19)

      Today, the Department for Education and Public Health England have issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19. This guidance will assist staff in addressing COVID-19 in educational settings. This includes childcare, schools, further and higher educational institutions.

      What you need to know:

      • staff, young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend education or work as normal
      • if staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home
      • clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces more often than usual using your standard cleaning products
      • supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues

      The updated guidance can be found here:

      Current advice remains in place: no education or children’s social care setting should close in response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.

      The Chief Medical Officer has advised that the impact of closing schools on both children’s education and on the workforce would be substantial, but the benefit to public health may not be. Decisions on future advice to education or children’s social care settings will be taken based on the latest and best scientific evidence, which at this stage suggests children are a lower risk group.

      Recording school pupil absences

      Where a pupil is in self-isolation, in accordance with latest information and advice from Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England, the pupil should be recorded as unable to attend due to exceptional circumstances in the attendance register. Code Y (Unable to attend due to exceptional circumstances) should be used in this instance.

      If a pupil does not attend school, despite the school operating as usual and the pupil is not self-isolating, they should be marked as absent. It is for headteachers to determine whether or not the absence is authorised depending on the individual circumstances.

      Where a pupil cannot attend school due to illness, as normally would happen, the pupil should be recorded as absent in the attendance register and the school will authorise the absence. Code I (Illness) should be used in this instance.

      Handwashing advice

      The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.

  • Keep Cool for Care Boxes - 23rd & 24th May

    Published 23/05/19

    How would you feel if when feeling down someone gave you something to pick you up and make you smile.

    That is exactly what our Year 10 Alan Senitt Leadership Team are trying to do to support students at Willows Academy -  A Special School for students with Social, Emotional Mental Health Issues.

    This group intend to raise money to provide a positive Care Box for students to show that they matter and to build their self-worth and resilience.

    To help us raise this money so that we can show we care and so that we can provide enough care boxes we are keeping cool, by buying ice lollies, to provide money to buy the items needed for the Care Boxes.  At a time when everyone is enjoying the sun, we ask for donations and purchases of our Ice Cream and Ice Lollies at lunchtime and after school to help those students who cannot appreciate what so many of us take for granted.
