Coronavirus Update 17.03.2020

March 17, 2020

Dear Parent/Carer Thank you for your continued support during these changing times.

This is to update you on what we are doing as an Academy to keep everyone in our community safe.

We are postponing all parents evenings and performances, lesson six and extra-curricular/sporting activities until we have clearer guidance on social distancing.

If your child is in receipt of free school meals we are currently looking at what we can provide should we have to close the Academy; as soon as we have confirmation of what we are able to do we will be in touch with individuals it concerns.

Detentions will not run after school but will be held at lunchtime and the internal exclusion facility will be open 9.00am – 3.00pm; new information should this be relevant to you and your young person will be given when required.

Please don't worry about examinations, pupils should continue to prepare as normal and we will send updates as we receive them. Please can you support us by reminding your child about hand washing, hygiene and sensible social distancing.

Please remember that personal hygiene is advised as the most important way we can tackle COVID-19. Also, a reminder of the symptoms to look out for:

  • A cough
  • A high temperature
  • Shortness of breath

However, please note that these symptoms do not necessarily mean they have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

The following NHS website can provide general advice:

We know this is a difficult situation and by working together as a community we can make a difference.


Kind Regards,

The Cedars Academy Leadership Team
