Covid-19 Contingency Plan
The priority for Matrix Academy Trust is to protect the health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. The Trust aims to keep schools as Covid free as possible. They do this by following Government guidelines, Public Health England advice and common sense.
Updates on the Covid-19 pandemic and school responses are on their websites e.g. social distancing. Guidance changes regularly following national and local advice. Parents, pupils and staff are informed of the steps taken e.g. when to wear a face covering.
Information is shared through publications of school letters, social media e.g. Twitter and Instagram and text messages.
As the normal annual events have stopped in many schools information is shared with pupils and parents through different approaches. Virtual events such as parents’ evenings and open evenings are being held to keep the communication link strong between schools and parents.
Local Covid alert levels for each school are:
Barr Beacon School
Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School
The relevant health authorities provide school guidance. In such circumstances, the Trust will follow the guidance given by these relevant authorities.
