At this present time, our aim for the start of term in September is to open on Thursday 3rd September for Lower School students only for a half-day without lunch. On Friday 4th September, we will be opening for all students until 1pm with lunch. For the following week, 7th to 11th September, we will be open for all students with lunch until 1.45pm. We will also not be offering a Breakfast Club for the first half term at least so please ensure students only arrive between 8.45am and 9am.

These arrangements are in place to give new students an opportunity to experience the school whilst it is slightly less busy and to enable us to ensure students stay within their tutor groups for the first week back in small bubbles.

Please make sure to note the earlier finish times and when your child is due to return to school in September. We will be in contact with families again at the end of the Summer Holidays.

Thanks,

Rob Watkins – Principal

The safety of our students is our number one priority.  As we all know, the risks in modern society are varied and constantly changing and we cannot remove these, so we all need to help educate children in ways to keep themselves safe.

As part of safeguarding the pupils of Carew Academy we will ensure that no political view is promoted. If political views are discussed as part of the school curriculum we will ensure this is a balanced discussion.
