Coronavirus update

Following the Government’s decision that schools can re-open, we will open to Y6 pupils on Monday 1 June, mid morning, and we intend to open to pupils in nursery, reception and Y1 on 2 June. We are also making plans to provide face-to-face contact for Year 10 from 15 June but NB Government has indicated that only around a quarter of Y10 students are likely to be able to attend at any one time.  

The Board has confirmed its arrangements to partially re-open schools (primary schools in the first instance) from 1 June. These arrangements are available here, together with specific safe working practices for staff working in administrative and office-based roles. The arrangements to partially re-open Ipswich Academy to Y10 students will be published as soon as these are available – which we anticipate will be sometime wc 8 June.

The Government has produced guidance on ‘What parents and carers need to know about schools and other education settings during the coronavirus outbreak.’

The Government has provided its definition of key workers. This is available here. Parents/carers have already been asked to indicate to their child/ren’s school if they feel that they qualify as a key worker. If you have already done so, but your status may now have changed or be unclear, please contact the school. If you have not yet contacted the school to say that you qualify as a key worker, and you would like your child to be in school, please let the school know urgently so that we can make plans.

Free School Meal vouchers – update

Current government guidance is that vouchers for pupils who are eligible for free school meals will not be issued for the half term break. Given this, we will not be issuing vouchers next week. If government guidance changes we will issue vouchers as soon as we can.

Celebrating Values within Paradigm Trust

This week, Paradigm Trust celebrated pupils who have been awarded all three values awards and have become the first values champions in the Trust. Paradigm shares the same core values throughout all of its schools:

  • Integrity – doing the right thing even when no one is watching.
  • Excellence – enabling everyone to achieve more through education.
  • Community – working together; learning from, and supporting, others.

Each week, pupils are nominated for positive behaviours that link to a value and each half term winners are chosen to receive a values award. Once a pupil has received an award for all three values s/he receives a values award. This week, 12 pupils from Culloden Primary Academy, 5 from Murrayfield Primary Academy and 4 from Piper’s Vale Primary Academy were recognised for receiving all three values awards and becoming values champions. Here are a few examples:

  • Integrity – for always doing the right thing and being a role model for the rest of the class
  • Community – for being kind and helpful to all and offering to help out around the classroom
  • Excellence – for completing work to the highest standards and responding to feedback given.

Pupils were presented with a certificate and values champion badge by Bill Holledge, CEO, Paradigm Trust and enjoyed a festive afternoon tea with their families.

Girls Active Leadership at Culloden Primary

Six Year 5 Girls from Culloden Primary Academy attended a leadership course with the aspiration to become leaders and role models to other girls in promoting physical activity. There is a stereotype in education that girls become less physically active than boys during their school lives. Our Year 5 girls set out to prove this is not the case!
