Re: Dudley Academies Trust's response to the Prime Minister's announcement on Wednesday 18th March 2020 at 17.00: School closure from Monday 23rd March 2020.

The academy will be open on Thursday 19th March and Friday 20th March for learners in all year groups. The same guidance applies that has been issued with regard to Covid- 19: Learners should not attend if they have a dry, persistent cough or a temperature, or if a member of the family has those symptoms. If learners are a member of a vulnerable group, they should also remain at home.

With regard to the Prime Minister's announcement at 17.15 on Wednesday 18th March at 2020, guidance will be issued tomorrow. The Trust will ensure that children of 'front line' workers and learners in vulnerable groups are provided for in accordance with the Department for Education's requirements.
