As a school within the Central RSA Academies Trust we completed a comprehensive risk assessment before opening to wider numbers of pupils in June 2020.

The results across the Trust from 1st June 2020 to the of end of summer term 2020 (20th July) are that there have been no reported positive cases amongst pupils or staff attending schools in our Trust. In this time period 7 potential cases were reported, all pupils and staff in those “bubbles” were sent home as a precaution and pupil’s parents or carers informed. All suspected cases proved to be negative and all pupil’s and staff in those bubbles were able to return to their respective schools.

  1. Awareness of procedures and policies
