After a hectic few days we are pleased to be returning to normal! Closing on Friday and Monday was a decision that was not taken lightly. We appreciate how much disruption closing can cause families, but under very challenging circumstances it was the right option to ensure the health and well-being of the children, staff and whole school community.
Bursley Academy has now been deep cleaned throughout and everyone returned to school today with big smiles on their faces.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents and carers for their continued support. The positive comments that have been received on social media, in the press and the offers of practical support for the cleaning process have been fantastic. It is challenging times like these that go to show what a supportive school community we have.
I would also like to thank staff for their efforts over the last few days. They worked tirelessly on both Thursday and Friday to ensure the school was ready for the deep clean process. Throughout they have shown their commitment to Bursley Academy and our hard working pupils.
I know things are not quite finished yet and that P.E kits and equipment were being collected from the playground this morning and will continue to be collected after school, another logistic challenge but one that is important to help prevent the sickness bug coming back.
Again I would like to thank you all for your continued support. I feel very privileged to be part of such a strong supportive school community.
