Happy Easter Break

Paula Osborn

We did it, we made it to the end of the term! The demands of this term have been like no other. We have never had a three-week term before, and it feels like a full term has taken place. Pupils and teachers have worked so hard since our return and are all ready for the Easter break. It has been absolutely amazing to have our children back. Pupils are where they should be – in school learning! The term has flown by and school life has been busy. The buzz of school life brings joy and happiness to all. As the weather improves, I hope you can make some time to enjoy it over the Easter break. Please rest and take some time to unwind.

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 13 April 2021.

Reporting Positive Cases of Covid-19 During the Easter Break

Paula Osborn

If your child tests positive for corona virus (COVID-19) at any point during the Easter break, please notify Aspire Academies Trust as soon as possible, so they can complete the relevant track and trace process with Public Health England and notify any other children or staff who have been in close contact and who may need to self-isolate. 

During the holidays, please contact covidcases@aspireacademies.org.uk. This will only be monitored until Sunday 11 April 2021. 

This email address will be monitored by the Aspire Central Team. Please include the following information: 

  • Child’s name
  • Year group
  • School he/she attends  
  • Date of their positive test result 

Please do not call the school’s normal absence line, as this will not be monitored during the Easter break.

Return on 8th March

It is great news to know that all our children will be returning to school on Monday 8th March as set out by the Prime Minister. We are still working on our return to school plan and this will be sent out via email next week once we have checked it thoroughly to ensure we have everything in place to keep all our children, parents and staff safe. We look forward to seeing you soon.

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.

Friday 18th December 2020

Paula Osborn

Please be aware that the last day of term is Friday 18th December at 1:30pm. Due to the timing of the most recent announcement from the DfE, we do not feel that there is appropriate notice for children and parents to end the term early.
