Updated Statement of Notice - Coronavirus November Lockdown

2nd November 2020

Following the Government’s recent Announcement that England will be entering into a month-long lockdown beginning Thursday 5th November 2020, we wanted to reassure you that Ad Astra will remain open throughout. Educational settings can stay open as normal, and so we will continue to offer the same provision and support as we are currently.

Naturally, we will continue to adhere to all guidance; both current and future changes, and remain vigilant in our practices to ensure that we protect our students, staff and wider Ad Astra family community.

Where a student lives with someone who is Clinically Vulnerable or Clinically Extremely Vulnerable, they may wish for that student to isolate at home. Where this is the case, we ask parents and carers to inform us, using the details below, prior to the 5th November 2020.

Ad Astra will continue to work hard to provide support to our students, families and our staff during this difficult time. For any students who are isolating, whether by choice due to a member of the household in the Vulnerable category, or by instruction from Ad Astra or School following development of symptoms or contact with a confirmed positive result, we will be offering an online learning platform for Maths and English supported by our teachers. We will also look to introduce online lessons to boost the online support where needed.

Additionally we are more than happy to answer any concerns or queries that you may have during this difficult time, and discuss any further support that Ad Astra can provide.

Mental Health and Wellbeing for our Students

We understand that we are in unprecedented times and it can be very difficult, upsetting and frightening for children and young people.

Ad Astra are committed to ensuring our students and families mental health is min
