Introduction and useful links for parents, including supporting your child's mental health and wellbeing

Dear Parents and Carers 

This page of the website will provide you with the details you need to understand what we consider to be the most important information to share with you. We hope this is helpful in giving you the essential information. 

The government has also published advice for parents and carers on supporting their child's emotional and mental wellbeing during the pandemic:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-supporting-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-and-wellbeing/guidance-for-parents-and-carers-on-supporting-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-and-wellbeing-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak

I am sure you know but it is worth re-stating that it is vitally important that your child does not attend the Academy if they have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, any member of your household has the symptoms, or if your child has been in immediate contact with any person who has symptoms, or if your child has returned from a country on the Government Travel restrictions website.

If your child has been exposed to anyone with confirmed symptoms or you have returned from a country on the list of travel restrictions then you must remain at home and call the Academy for further guidance. 

Our introduction information on this tab includes information on Step 4 and links to some useful information on symptoms and the rules about self isolation.
