COVID-19 Update - Midland Academies School Closures
Following Government guidelines and official advice received yesterday, The Midland Academies will be closing all schools as of Friday 20th March 2020 at 4.30 pm for the majority of students and staff. Details of the provision of our revised offer in response to government instructions will follow in due course. All schools will be open for the rest of this week and students are asked to attend their classes, The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. We will continue to follow advice and monitor this situation closely while ensuring that we remain the cornerstone of the community during this uncertain time.
Please be assured that the Midland Academies Trust has put robust plans in place to ensure that the vast majority of curriculum and business functions can continue during this enforced closure of our four schools. Information for pupils about studying from home, exams and how we can support our school communities through this challenging time will be sent to all parents and stakeholders in the coming days.
We recognise and understand that you may have concerns and ask for your support as we work together to ensure the good health of all our staff, students and our local communities.
We will keep staff, parent and students informed via our normal communications means, social media and the website of any changes to the situation. Please continue to monitor your specific school websites for updated communications.
We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to education and have developed an approach and a model that enables long-term sustainable educational school improvement.
This is built on strong executive leadership and management, effective local governance, curriculum expertise and professional business and financial management.
Each individual school is at the centre of our community, raising aspirations and achievement with particular emphasis on key areas.
We work together with each school in the Trust, developing a challenging improvement plan for them which will focus and build on their distinct strengths whilst at the same time identifying areas that need more attention. The plan is then monitored and reported on by their own local governing body and the Trust’s board of directors.
This approach enables the schools to work closely together with one another to share best practice as well as drawing on expertise from North Warwickshire & South Leicestershire College. The output is the identification of progression opportunities for all students, of all abilities through all phases of their education.
