Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Sunday 10th May, it remains unclear when secondary schools in England will reopen for all students. Although this is disappointing, the well being, health and safety of our community must be a priority. It was announced, however, that there is an ambition that Year 10 students will return prior to the summer holidays so that contact with teachers and friends takes place before students enter their examination year in September. We anticipate more announcements and detail over these plans in the coming week and will, of course, communicate with you when details are confirmed. Please be assured that staff have worked hard from home planning for Year 10 students to return to the academy safely, so no time will be lost once a date for return is announced.

Students who are currently at home have been given work and should use their time productively during the days they would normally have been learning at the academy. Please log in to Google Classroom to access the work your child must complete; it is essential that all work is completed so they do not fall behind academically during the period of closure. Please also be aware that the academy reception is open daily from 8am – 3:30pm, so please do not hesitate to telephone us should you have any concerns or need support with home learning, safeguarding or any other matter pertaining to your child’s learning or welfare.

Please also monitor your child’s use of online resources as it is especially important that we safeguard children at a time when their use of online resources has greatly increased. The DfE have added a section on keeping children safe online in its current guidance. It provides links to online resources that will help support parents and carers; full details can be found in section 6.3 of the guidance for parents and carers on the closure of educational settings which can be found here.

I know all staff and students of Mossbourne Victoria Park Academy are grateful to all key workers, especially NHS staff, including auxiliary staff, doctors, cleaners, paramedics and nurses who are going above and beyond to keep us all safe and healthy during this time of worry and turmoil.

A special salute to the many Mossbourne alumni who have entered medical professions and stand shoulder to shoulder with NHS colleagues. We are proud of you beyond words – you are giving back more than we ever imagined possible.

Please be assured that we will do all within our power to reduce the impact of the closure on student learning and attainment, and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support during this difficult time.

"I'd never been in a play or done acting before I came to MVPA. Now I'm doing drama GCSE and want to be an actor! I've been given so much confidence by what I've experienced here."

I never knew how much could be achieved until I came to work at Mossbourne. I wish all schools could be like this.
