Check out and follow our Instagram page @prudhoewestacademy for photos and videos! Our fantastic staff video is up and working fine on there so far, so if you want to enjoy it again, please head over and give it a watch! Missing you all lots ☺️💕
🎶We are aware Facebook is muting the version below...we’re trying our best to fix this, honest!! We decided to get our very own Mrs Falcus to sing some parts for us, because fingers crossed they won't be able to accuse us of copyright then 🤣. Hopefully you’ll be able to hear at least the first half of this one 💕☺️
We will leave the one below so we can still see and read your lovely and kind comments. We are also working to get the full version on the schools website 💕 ...
💕🎉🎶So, earlier in the week Mrs Falcus let you know that choir were having a week off as the staff focussed on reopening.... well.... that wasn’t quite the truth....
Obviously we have all been working crazy hard to get school ready to reopen, but we’ve also secretly been putting together a little surprise for you all!
This was shared with staff for the first time yesterday; up to that point everyone had only seen their own bit. I can say with certainly there has been a fair few tears since... pretty evenly split between crying with laughter, and crying with emotion. I actually had to stop watching the first couple of times... just couldn’t cope!
PWA Team - you are unreal!! Despite what social media might be saying about school staff, I know you have all never stopped throughout this crazy time. Despite having your own families and worries to manage, you’ve continued to offer care, support and quality education to our children and their families, and also love and laughs to one another. (All I’ll say is thank goodness the staff WhatsApp group is private!!!) Thank you for being so endlessly amazing! The effort you have all put into this is fantastic, but a HUGE, SPECIAL thank you to Mrs Falcus for going above and beyond to pull this together for all of us 🎶
To all of our children, families, and wider followers... sit back and enjoy! We hope this makes you smile watching it as much as it made us smile making it! We miss you all so much. X
Please feel free to share!
❗️We are aware Facebook is at times, muting this version, so we have changed it to our very own Mrs Falcus singing some parts for us 😍, so fingers crossed you can hear that part, if nothing else! I think if you view it as an external user (so not through the Facebook app), it works! Good luck 🤣❗️ ...
Coronavirus won’t stop us!! No public performance of our reception class mothers’ day assembly today ... so we did a virtual version instead! Get your tissues ready before watching! Well done little stars... so proud of you all. 🌟@WiseAcademies https://www.facebook.com/181977971928566/posts/2639565162836489/
We love a launch event!! Here’s a video montage of our British Science Week Launch Day... so many smiles and laughs... and a few mishaps too!! @WiseAcademies https://www.facebook.com/181977971928566/posts/2612254172234255/
Please find the most recent update from our CEO, Mrs. Z E Carr here
The safety of our pupils and staff across the trust is our number one priority. The Government’s advice is changing regularly and we continue to monitor the situation closely. We will continue to provide updates as and when we have them.
At this stage our schools continue to be open in line with the current advice published by the Government and Public Health England for schools and education settings. The Department for Education (DfE) has advised that no school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless advised to do by Public Health England. We are monitoring staffing levels to ensure our schools remain safe places for our pupils.
The Government’s advice specifically for schools is that:
staff, young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others, otherwise they should attend education or work as normal
if staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home
With immediate effect: “Stay at home” guidance for households with possible coronavirus
If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.
As we take on board the Government’s advice about avoiding non-essential social contact and travel we will need to make changes to activities and events. It is essential that you check school information on a regular basis.
We may need to change how we operate over the coming weeks, therefore please ensure your contact details are up to date so that school can contact you by text.
We appreciate that this is a worrying time for everyone. Please contact us if you have any concerns or you feel we can support you in any way.
The Department for Education (DfE) has a helpline to answer questions about coronavirus (COVID-19) related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:
Go to the NHS webpage on the coronavirus for information about the virus and how to protect yourself and your family. Use NHS 111 online to assess any steps you should take; only ring 111 if you do not have internet access.
