Covid 19 Guidance

The Governors and staff of Mounts Bay Academy are committed to do whatever is necessary to keep every member of our Academy community safe and well.

The current government guidance is that all families should conduct a Lateral Flow Coronavirus testing regime at least twice a week.

All students receive our broad and balanced curriculum which will consist of a combination of face to face teaching, live streamed lessons and self guided online learning depending on circumstances. To keep everyone safe students supply their own headphones to be able to take part in streamed lessons.

We endeavour to allow students to have access to separate outdoor areas during break and lunchtimes, however we must expect that on some occasions this will not be possible.

All of this is supported by a rigorous sanitisation and cleaning regime throughout the school day with a deep clean taking place of the campus each evening.

Safety must come first, and dependent on government guidance we may require students to wear a face covering. .

Students will need each day:

  1. School bag
  2. Waterproof Coat
  3. Face Covering – to be worn at all times in the school buildings
  4. Resealable plastic bag for face covering
  5. Uniform
  6. PE kit on a PE day
  7. Headphones
  8. Pencil Case
  9. Pens (Blue and black biro plus black fine liner)
  10. Pencils – HB and 2B
  11. Coloured pencils
  12. Calculator (Casio 83GTX or 85GTX is recommended)
  13. Rubber
  14. Pencil Sharpener
  15. Small pair of scissors
  16. Glue stick
  17. Geometry  Set
  18. Ruler (30cm)
  19. Water Bottle
