Dear Parents/Carers

Examination Arrangements for Thursday 8th June

The Academy is being used as a polling station on Thursday 8th June and we had originally planned to keep the Academy open. We now firmly believe that it would be more prudent to close to all students except for those sitting examinations. There will be a skeleton staff on site to support students taking their examinations, including the Senior Leadership team. I apologise for the relatively short notice given, but trust you will understand the need to put the safety of our students first particularly in light of recent events in Manchester and London.

The arrangements for Thursday are as follows:

 Students sitting public examinations should arrive at the Academy at 8.30am and should enter at the Sports Hall entrance.

 A cold breakfast will be provided for students and we will issue them with a bottle of water.

 The warm-up for the GCSE Maths exam will take place in the Pink Wing and there is access to water and toilet facilities in this area.

 The examination will start at the published time of 9.15am with the majority of students in the Sports Hall and those with special access arrangements will be in rooms situated in the pink wing.

 At the end of the examination, students will exit via the Sports Hall entrance and leave site immediately.

All actions related to the General Election will be taking place in the Green Wing, with security from the Local Authority in place to manage movement to and from the main gate. Our internal doors will be locked preventing access from the Green Wing to the other wings of the Academy. We will have practiced our Critical Incident Plan with our students before Thursday so that they are freshly aware of the correct procedure in the event of an incident.

The TLM exam due to take place in the afternoon will be rescheduled and, as soon as we have the new date and time, we will let you know.

We would ask that all students support our arrangements by being prompt to arrive, by remaining patient during the warm-up and admission to the examinations and by leaving promptly at the end of the examination. We are clear that these measures minimise risk to students without compromising their critical examinations.

Yours sincerely

Andy O’Rourke

Acting Assistant Principal

In response to the events in Manchester, it is possible that children will be feeling anxious about the news coverage and the discussions that may be taking place in the Academy and on social media. Here at All Saints Academy, we have taken the initial step of showing our respect in the wake of the tragedy and have focused our young people on a practical and positive activity through which they can show support. We have also given guidance to our staff, following the advice provided by the PSHCE Association, to help them address concerns and conversations that students may be having.

There is a Freephone helpline for those affected by the media coverage of the incident in Manchester on 08088 020 021 and the numbers for members of the public who are concerned about individuals who may have attended the concern is 0161 856 9400. To report anything suspicious please call 0800 789 321.

At all times, we will follow our normal safeguarding procedures to ensure the well-being of our students. If you receive a text or phone call asking you to verify the whereabouts of your son/daughter, please respond promptly.

“The school no longer requires a category of concern. The school is now improving rapidly and continues its journey to being a good school.”

 

Dear Parents and Carers

I am absolutely delighted to inform you that the recent Ofsted inspection took All Saints Academy out of a category of concern. We are no longer “inadequate” and have been judged ”requires improvement”, but as you can see from the headline above, Ofsted feel that we are on a journey towards becoming a good school.

I would like to thank all the staff and students for the effort they have put in over the last fifteen months since I arrived at the Academy. With continued team-work we will aim to take the Academy on the next part of its journey to “good”!

 

Best wishes

Liz Furber

Principal
