Advice for Parents & Carers on Staying Safe during the Coronavirus

Parents should do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus.

They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults. 

 Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to thank you sincerely for following government advice in keeping your child/ children at home wherever this is at all possible. I am aware that this period of school closure may be very difficult for you. It is so important that each of us plays our part in the country's fight to defeat the Coronavirus.

Oak Hill Academy remains closed to the majority of pupils with a very small number of children of key workers in attendance. We also have a dramatically reduced number of teachers and support staff in school on a daily rota. You can still contact the school in the usual way, although there are fewer administrative staff on-site so response times may be slower at present. Email is the best form of contact. This is being checked daily. We will ensure that the notice regarding closure posted on the academy website remains up to date to keep you informed of any changes in line with the government's advice. Use the following link:

It is really important that your child/children do study whilst at home. A regular learning routine would help pupils both educationally and emotionally to cope with these extraordinary circumstances. Each Year Team Leader has ensured that plenty of work has been sent out to your child / children. If you have not received the paper pack or online work, please do email the relevant Year Team Leader on:

Year 3 Team Leader is Mrs Cronin
Year 4 Team Leader is Miss Darkes
Year 5 Team Leader is Mr Ridgway
Year 6 Team Leader is Mr Clifton

Once again, thank you for acting in line with government advice, this has enabled us to keep our whole school community as safe as possible. I must stress that it is so important that you continue to do this over the coming days and weeks. Please stay safe by staying indoors wherever possible!


Mrs R Saim
