Welcome to Sneyd Academy
Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
Following a very thorough risk assessment encompassing all aspects of our provision, Sneyd Academy has been delighted to welcome back more pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. All documentation around the wider opening of school and the actions taken to maintain the safety of every member of our Sneyd Academy family can be found on our website. A specialised curriculum has been devised by our skilled and dedicated teaching team to ensure that we do the following three things:
1. Ensure that children feel happy, safe and that their mental health and wellbeing is our priority
2. Recap prior learning to ensure that children have remembered content taught previously
3. Begin to teach new skills in preparation for the following academic year
During these unprecedented times, staff at Sneyd Academy are committed to ensuring that we maintain positive links with our children and family members. Our main method for communicating with all children completing home learning activities continues to be through Class Dojo. Our main priority is to ensure that children remain safe and happy. If you have any concerns regarding home learning activities or for the wellbeing of your child, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to being able to welcome all of our children back to Sneyd Academy within the very near future.
Alpha Academies Trust Announcement
From the 1st June 2020, the Government has requested schools to begin welcoming back students, alongside the full time provision they are offering to priority groups. Alpha Academies Trust has responded by implementing detailed risk assessments to ensure it is safe to do so.
Click here to read the letter from the CEO and Chair of the Trust detailing the outcome of these risk assessments, and how the Trust intends to address the new Government guidance.
Alpha Academies Trust has also made guidance available for parents, detailing what measures will be implemented to ensure a safe learning environment when children return.
The Government have cancelled all public examinations for 2020, and staff have followed DfE guidelines whilst assessing the hard work completed by children to support a GCSE grade that will be awarded in the same way as previous years.
