  • Coronavirus Information

    Published 26/02/20

    Coronavirus information

     Due to staff shortages we will be closing the academy effective at the end of today, Thursday 19th March, until further notice.

    Greenwood Academies Trust is monitoring daily updates and advice from the UK Government in regards to Coronavirus. We are keeping our Principals updated with the Government’s latest recommended measures to keep pupils and staff safe. Although the risk to individuals remains low, and we have not had any issues within our Academies, as always the active involvement of the whole Academy community in maintaining good hygiene practices will be vital in minimising the chances of any viruses spreading. 

    For more information please go to:

    https://www.greenwoodacademies.org/news/?pid=0&nid=6&storyid=1771

     

    Our Principals will keep pupils, parents and staff advised of any necessary arrangements as soon as practicable in relation to daily Academy activity and any visits overseas. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and issue any updated Government guidance to Principals.

    Published 21/11/19

    A massive thank you to Corby and Kettering Borough Council for creating a fabulous outdoor learning space (complete with seating, firepit and bug/hedgehog hotel) for our children.  The logs have been recycled from around the Corby and Kettering area and the fire pit stones are locally sourced ironstone.  The team (Liam, Simon, Steve and Trevor) have worked tremendously hard in the bitter cold over the last two days to create this amazing space for our school community.

  • 'Clean Elizabeth'

    Published 21/11/19
