Dear Parent/Carer

We have just received further information from the government regarding the arrangements being put in place for ‘Critical Workers’ to be able to continue to send their child to school during the Corona outbreak. You can see the full guidance here Guidance We are working as quickly as possible with our staff and the support of the Trust to get provision in place but this will take a little time and we really need your help.

There are several key points to bear in mind:

  • Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.
  • There is no requirement for parents and carers to send their children to school if they do not need or wish to do so.
  • The provision is only for ‘Critical Workers’ and vulnerable children, the full list of critical workers and further information is available here. Critical Workers
  • Children with at least one parent or carer who are identified as critical workers by the government can send their children to school if required.

School Closure Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Apologies first for sending out so much information at once but please do take the time to read it.


I would like to thank you for all of your support, understanding and patience over the past few weeks as we tried to respond to Government guidance re. the Coronavirus. You are all aware that yesterday we received notice to close schools from Friday this week and we are currently in the process of planning for this.


Whilst there are still many ‘unknowns’ we are able to plan for a few ‘knowns’ and I would like to share details with you. Throughout the school closure period I will keep you up to date with developments via emails and text messages.




1. Schools have been asked to provide a childcare service for Key Workers who have no alternative childcare provision. Whilst we wait for greater clarity on this we have started to build a picture of how many children this may involve in order to plan for a service,


UNFORTUNATELY we have had to make the difficult decision to STOP ALL AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS from tomorrow, Wednesday 18th March until further notice.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


COVID-19 Update


Dear parents and carers,
We write to share the most recent guidance that we have received regarding Corona virus (COVID19) and outline our school’s response to this guidance. We have also attached a link to guidance taken from the GOV.UK website which explains how to keep yourselves safe at home should you develop symptoms,…/publica…/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

At the moment the Government and Public Health England state that they have moved from the containment part of their plan to the delay part; this is designed to slow down the spread of the virus using the following methods:
· Frequent handwashing.
· Staying at home for seven days if you have a new persistent cough and/or fever.

We continue to ensure that children and staff wash hands on arrival at school, after playtime, before lunch, after lunchtime and after afternoon play, children are also being asked to wash their hands if they sneeze, cough or blow their noses.

Updated Behaviour Policy and Approach

Dear parents and carers,

All the staff at Temple Learning Academy are very proud of the school that we are building together and the quality of education that we provide for our pupils. We are also extremely grateful for the support and trust that we receive from families, which in turn empowers us to do a better job for your children.

Pupils regularly tell us that they feel happy and safe and cared for in our school, and this is a wonderful and crucially important achievement. They want to learn and they want to achieve the very best.

Pupils also tell us that they want our support to make further improvements with their behaviours and attitudes to learning. Our own observations of the pupils show us that they need even more support in developing their abilities to behave in ways that maximise their learning. We need to build their focus, maturity, independence and resilience. This is especially true as pupils grow older and prepare for the world after they leave Temple Learning Academy at the end of Year 11.
