Dear parents/carers,

An update on the current situation at Linden Road Academy.  There have been no confirmed cases of the coronavirus in any of our children or their families.  We do have increasing numbers of children and families following the Government’s guidelines and are self-isolation with symptoms of a high temperature or a new, consistent cough.  There are no symptoms of the virus among our staff and we have the staff needed to run the school fully and safely.  This may change over the next few days.

We are making plans for learning to continue for your children in the event of self- isolation or a school closure.  Our plans involve online learning with regular updates from your child’s class teacher.  However if you would prefer a paper booklet then please let your child’s teacher know or contact the school office.

With your child's best interests at the centre of all we do,

Mr Greaves
