Update 27th May 2020 - Temporary School Closure

As a precaution, we are closing Christ the King Academy and St. Mary’s Catholic Academy sites for all
staff and pupils for the next 48 hours. We have taken this decision as a very small number of the
Academy community have recently tested positive for Covid-19.
We are currently working closely with Public Health England to determine our next steps. We have
taken this precautionary decision to temporarily close while we undertake detailed risk assessments.
We are also taking the opportunity to clean all sites thoroughly. We do not wish to expose any pupils
or staff to additional risk whilst we are undertaking these steps.
Any staff or pupils directly affected have been contacted already by senior staff.
Thank you for your understanding and support. We appreciate your concerns and are working hard
to address these as soon as possible.
If you are concerned about your child’s health, in the meantime, please contact 111.
