Darton Academy – Partial Closure for Year 9

****Darton Academy Update Only****

As you are aware we are working closely with Public Health England, the Department for Education and local authority and we will continue to follow advice and guidance closely. Senior staff and I meet daily to keep fully informed and up to date. All staff are working extremely hard to keep everyone safe.

However, given the updated guidance issued yesterday, the resulting staffing shortages mean that we have a significant challenge in providing the normal operation of the school. In order to minimise disruption to teaching and learning, in particular for those members of our student community who will be sitting public examinations this summer, we are putting a partial opening in place.

This will mean that tomorrow the school will be open only to certain year groups.

We will be open for Years 7, 8, 10 and 11.
We will be closed for Year 9.

These measures will be reviewed at the end of the school day on Friday 20th March.
