Following a detailed evaluation of the potential risks and logistical issues, Empower Learning Academy Trust schools have, after careful consideration by our Headteachers and Trust Board, taken the decision to move to virtual Open Evenings this year, supplemented with a significantly expanded programme of school tours both within and after the normal school day.
Details of the virtual events will be published on our school websites, along with details of the tour programmes and the booking process.
This difficult decision has been taken in order to prioritise the health and safety of our staff and students and consideration of the risk to the wider visiting public and their children, many of whom will be returning to their primary schools the very next day after visiting.
We hope you understand the reasons behind this decision and apologise for any disappointment caused. We are confident that the combination of virtual resources and thorough tours will still allow you to see how our family of schools provide opportunities for our pupils, staff and leaders to be the best they can be; to create a passion for lifelong learning and to enable our pupils to become confident and impactful world citizens. When considering our schools, please do look at our values, which are truly lived and breathed and underpin all aspects of our everyday decision making.
