Welcome to Sneyd Academy

Message from the Principal

1st September 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you have had a great summer and your child is looking forward to either joining us for the first time or returning to the Academy in September.

We are slowly moving back to some sense of normality but the risk of Covid 19 is still very real and I understand that the return to school for some is an anxious time.

Prior to the holiday we sent out a detailed guide of our reopening plans which are available on Class Dojo. We feel that our plans will ensure a safe environment for your child and our staff. In order to effectively manage the risks that remain, it will be a little different when your child returns to the Academy in September.


I think we all agree that a return to school and education is very important. Home learning was a positive experience for some children but for some it was not. To learn effectively the vast majority of young people need face to face contact with experts, general guidance and routines for learning to progress academically, develop their wellbeing, and social development.

It is important for your child to return. The Government have made it clear that attendance will be mandatory from the beginning of the new academic year, meaning that it is a parent’s legal duty to send your child to school. If your child is unable to attend due to individual health advice from a doctor or because they are self-isolating due to symptoms or a positive test result, please contact us so we are aware and can ensure support is in place.

I hope this information, together with the more detailed reopening plan, provides you with some sense of reassurance. Please do contact us if you have any concerns.

Principal

🗳️ International Day of Democracy 🗳️

Today it is International Day of Democracy, and the children have learnt about Democracy and the reasons why we vote. Some year groups will be voting for their school council member this week, whilst younger year groups may be voting for a story they'd like their teacher to read at the end of the day.
Mrs Bennett put together an assembly to teach the children about democracy and who our local MP and Mayor is. In the next few weeks, some children in Year 6 will have the opportunity to meet Jonathan Gullis (MP for Stoke-on-Trent North) virtually and ask him some questions about his position.

As part of the assembly, Mrs Bennett has given the children an opportunity to take part in a whole school competition:

✨International Day of Democracy Competition ✨

If you were a leader at Sneyd Academy, what would you change?

Can you write your own policy/ design a poster to show this? It can be hand written or created on a computer.

Closing date: Friday 25th September, 2020 (handed to Mrs Bennett)

All staff will vote for the best design and other posters will displayed on a display board in school.

Good luck! 🍀

Year 3 have had a fabulous week this week, they have had experienced Stone Age . They have foraged for food, built shelters, learnt how to light fires, and learnt how to use a bow and arrow and how to throw an axe. We will now be able to apply this first hand experience in our writing 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

Sounds like they all had a great day. My son refused salad leaves for his dinner then appeared from the garden to wash a dandilion leave to eat 😂
