School Update 4/1/21

Following this evening’s announcement from Boris Johnson, we want to reassure our families and the school community that our provision remains the same as that recently communicated. We will be open tomorrow for our vulnerable students and those children of critical workers. The rest of our students will access their learning online.

We will provide further communication tomorrow.

Following a meeting with Shire Services, it has been confirmed to Shrewsbury Academy that the biometric system for paying for lunch and break time food will not be in operation for the start of term. This is confirmed in their own Risk Assessment, there is no confirmation of a date that it will return to use.

All students will provide their name to canteen staff and this will be recorded onto the computerised system.

We would appreciate it if all parents/ carers could activate the parent pay system. Letters will be sent out to all parents/ carers of new students. For those who do not have access to the details please contact Ellie Evans using the following email address or by phone on 07718162761.
