'Respect, Belief, Excellence'
Due to the ongoing CORVID-19 outbreak school will close at the end of the school day on Friday 20th March and remain closed until further notice in line with current government guidelines. Please see the letter below for clarifications:
As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing.
And the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.
LATEST GOVT ADVICE
If your child is eligible to receive free school meals, please advise the school if you wish to continue to receive this provision whilst your child is not at school. All parents who register for this will be able to collect a packed lunch for each child from the Junior hall door at 11am promptly each day, as its important that we minimise the time that any visitors are on site. Please also advise the school of any updated dietary requirements or food allergies which relate to your child.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS
Welcome to Rise Park Academy Trust, which comprises of the Sunbeams Nursery, Rise Park Infant School and Rise Park Junior School.
The Trust was opened in 2014, from which time it has gone from strength to strength, achieving two Ofsted Good judgements in May 2017.
Our flagship Early Years Centre was opened in 2013, followed by a state of the art Upper Junior School Block in 2015 and an innovative maintained nursery provision in 2017. We are now planning a joint Multi Use Games Area which is due to be constructed during 2020.
The Board of Directors, Local Advisory Board, Senior Leadership Team, staff team and pupils are very proud of our broad and varied provision, which is ably supported by an active and successful PTFA, as well as a very positive wider school community.
We welcome all parents, visitors and external agencies to work with us in partnership in order to continue to enhance and develop our overarching educational and pastoral offer.
We look forward to meeting you and working with you across our progressive multi academy trust
Rise Park Academy Trust.
Pupil Property Collection
If your child has left any personal property at school e.g. P.E.kit, other uniform, lunchboxes etc. then please do not visit the school site at the present time in order to collect any of these items.
Once it is safe to do so, these will all be available, in class boxes, for you to collect from a nominated central point, details of which will be advised to you as soon as possible. With thanks for your continued support and understanding.
