Partial reopening of school – update 5 June 2020

We are currently preparing for the wider opening of Vale of York Academy.

At this stage, the government is asking secondary schools to supplement remote learning with some face-to-face support for students in Year 10. This is to help and support students with their ongoing remote learning but also to help prepare them for their forthcoming public examinations in 2021.

The Principal has sent a letter to all Year 10 students / their parents/carers today (5 June 2020) to confirm the arrangements the Academy has made to offer face-to-face support for these students.

We aim to commence providing face-to-face learning to students in Year 10 from Monday 15 June.

Full information about the plans for partial reopening can be found here – please do take a look:

You can also see the Principal’s latest video message here.

Emergency cover

The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. In response to the Prime Minister’s address to the Nation, we must ask that parents and carers continue to only access the emergency child care cover at the school if you absolutely have to and if there is no one else in your household, who is not a key worker, who can safely look after your child.

It is essential that we minimise the number of people accessing this emergency cover so that we can adhere to strict social distancing requirements, for the health and safety and wellbeing of the children and our staff.

What do I do if I need to access the emergency cover?

Correspondence is currently being undertaken directly with the school.

Please inform the school if your requirements change and you no longer need cover for the days you have booked.

What is a key worker?

‘Key workers’ are defined as those whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response or those who work in one of the critical sectors listed below:

  • Health and Social Care
  • Education and Child Care
  • Key Public Service
  • Local and National Government (linked to COVID-19)
  • Food Supplies
  • Public Safety and National Security
  • Transport
  • Utilities, Communication and Finance
  • Key Workers
  • Health Care
  • Journalist and Broadcasters
  • Religious Staff, Charities and Workers delivering frontline services
