School Closure

Paula Osborn

As you are aware, there has been much speculation in the news relating to possible school closures and delaying the start of term for pupils. You may also be aware that unions have advised teachers to exercise their right to work remotely via a Section 44 letter on the grounds of health and safety at work. The Government have put Headteachers in a very difficult situation. Whilst we understand last minute decisions are not ideal, we are doing our very best to update you as soon as information is available to us. 

I can confirm Broadfield Academy will now provide education to pupils remotely commencing tomorrow: Tuesday 5th January 2021 due to a lack of staff available to run the school safely

School will be open for critical key worker and vulnerable children. 

We have already contacted all our critical key worker and vulnerable families to assess on-site provision required. If you fall into the critical key worker or vulnerable category and have not been contacted, please call the school as soon as possible.
