SCHOOL RE-OPENING JAN 2021 - GETTING READY AND COVID-19 SECURE
A phased reopening of schools nationally in October was halted by an increase in Covid-19 cases. Our Grade 4 Class pupils have continued to attend school, while the remainder have been supported with Distance Learning at home.
In preparation for a full re-opening in Januray 2021, we have taken steps to ensure that Barbara Academy is equipped to provide a Covid-secure environment by agreeing to fund additional expenses, including:-
• Reconfiguration of existing buildings and purchase of additional desks etc to accommodate social distancing within classrooms
• Installation of additional water storage and handwashing facilities
• Provision of face masks – made by local Widow Groups, who benefit from the additional income
• Purchase of thermo guns to check the temperature of everyone entering the site
