Reopening Information – Y10 & Y12

Many thanks to those parents who completed our survey seeking views on a partial reopening of the school. We want to make any re-opening educationally worthwhile whilst our main concern is the safety and wellbeing of students and staff.  The documents below outline the steps we are taking to ensure the safety of staff and students in our school when we plan to re-open on the 15th of June. As a school our plan currently is to open on this date for some face-to-face provision for Y10 and Y12 students.

We are following all guidance to ensure we have everything in place. All our plans are subject to change, depending on regular reviews and staffing levels and we will keep you informed of these as often as necessary. We hope that this information goes some way to addressing your queries and concerns and supports you in making your decision regarding whether your child takes up the offer of a place at this provision.

Coronavirus Update – School Reopening to Y10 & Y12

Coronavirus update – School will reopen June 15 for Y10 and Y12

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday evening, we can confirm that the date when we will reopen for Y10 and Y12 will be June 15. The Governors of Magnus Academy met last night and agreed our plans for reopening. They were confident and reassured that we have plans that will prioritise the safety of both staff and students when we do return. We will be writing to parents/carers of Y10 and Y12 students next week to outline these plans in detail. You will then be able to confirm whether you are comfortable with your child returning. Following this we will issue individual student timetables that will outline the days and times students are expected in school. Thank you for your support and patience at this difficult time.

Weekly Tutor Quiz – Microsoft Teams Guidance

We haven’t been in touch for a few weeks now and we miss you and want to find out how you’re getting on. We want to know what you’ve been doing during lockdown to keep busy and how you are finding the work we have set. So, we will be posting weekly quizzes on Microsoft Teams for you to all fill in starting tomorrow.

We are aware that many students in year 7-9 may not know how to access Teams so have created a video tutorial to walk you through it. There is also a document you can use here: https://www.magnusacademy.co.uk/…/03/How-to-access-Teams.pdf. All you need to access Teams is an internet connection – it can be accessed on any web browser on a computer, tablet, phone etc.

The quiz will be posted tomorrow (01/05/2020) at 9am so watch the video and have a go at logging in today. If you can’t remember or don’t know your school login, please contact us and we will find it out for you. The deadline for the quiz is Wednesday and if you don’t complete it, we will call you.
