School Closure on 18th December 2020

The last day in school for students will be a full day on Thursday 17th December, this will now be the Christmas non-uniform day. Students will return to the Academy on Monday 4th January 2021.

Dear Parent/Carer

You may have seen in the news that the Department for Education have given schools the opportunity to introduce a teacher training day on Friday 18th December in the interests of both students and staff. The Academy has taken the decision to support this in order to reduce student contact in the run up to Christmas and adhere to government guidance. This therefore means that the last day in school for students will be a full day on Thursday 17th December, this will now be the Christmas non-uniform day. Students will return to the Academy on Monday 4th January 2021.

The Department for Education have also stated that schools must remain “on call” for the first six days of the Christmas holidays to help with contact tracing. If your child has a positive Covid test in the first 6 days of the Christmas break (Friday 18th to Wednesday 23rd December inclusive), please contact the school via learningsupport@yewlandsacademy.org between 10am and 2pm, so we can actively support track and trace and contact the family of any students who have been in close proximity to advise on self-isolation.

Yours faithfully

Mr Andrew Kelly

Principal
