Dear Parents / Carers,
I’m sure that you will now be aware of the Government’s decision to close schools until further notice for the vast majority of children with effect from Friday evening.
It has also been announced that to allow key workers to carry out their vital work and to support more vulnerable children, schools will remain open to a limited number of children. A letter has been sent home today, Thursday 19th March, to all families with further information.
I understand that this latest news will have an impact on you and your family and not just for the short term. Thank you in advance for your understanding in this. It is the kindness and support that we give to each other that will help us get through these unprecedented times.
Take good care of one another,
Pilton Bluecoat, Umberleigh, Witheridge, High Bickington and Brayford Academies together form the TEAM (Together Each Achieves More)
Multi-Academy Trust. Being directly funded from the Department of Education, gives us a little more independence and allows us to be more creative in the way we develop our partnership. Our children, across all five schools, benefit from working together and they are able to have their learning enhanced through experiencing the different settings our schools offer. As a partnership, we are able to offer specialist teachers for Physical Education, Music and Modern Foreign Languages and our children benefit from a vibrant curriculum that includes residential visits for all junior children, days out to support learning and visitors to our schools to extend curriculum opportunities.
Our aim is to provide the highest quality education for the children in our care at every stage. We provide a very supportive and positive environment for children to learn. We are proud of the standards our children achieve, not only in their academic work but, importantly, in the way they develop as young people.
