Welcome to Reach Academy
Message from the Principal
During these unprecedented and difficult times, we endeavour to continue to support all our students at The Reach Academy with both their academic progress and wellbeing and our parents and carers in supporting your children at home. Its incredibly difficult, we know. You are doing brilliantly!
We are usingMicrosoft Teamsto deliver our lessons and pastoral support to our students. Our main priority is to ensure that children remain safe and happy. On ‘Teams’, you will see we have been having twice weekly assemblies with students which has been wonderful seeing their faces and speaking to them about what they have been doing this last few weeks. I have loved watching the film made by our students and sent to the staff in response to the staff video. It shows what kind, caring, thoughtful students we have.
If you have any concerns regarding home learning activities, or the wellbeing of your child, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our Safeguarding lead is Zoe Simpson (email@example.com) and our Vice Principal is Scott Manifold (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have any concerns regarding College applications, please email David Miles (email@example.com) who will support you with this.
We look forward to being able to welcome all of our students back to the academy as soon as it is deemed safe to do so. In the meantime, thank you for your responses to our daily phone calls, we have loved speaking to you and keeping our fantastic relationships going.
Alpha Academies Trust Announcement
From the 1st June 2020, the Government has requested schools to begin welcoming back students, alongside the full time provision they are offering to priority groups. Alpha Academies Trust has responded by implementing detailed risk assessments to ensure it is safe to do so.

Alpha Academies Trust has also made guidance available for parents, detailing what measures will be implemented to ensure a safe learning environment when children return.
The Government have cancelled all public examinations for 2020, and staff have followed DfE guidelines whilst assessing the hard work completed by children to support a GCSE grade that will be awarded in the same way as previous years.
