Covid-19 response

Supporting our staff and pupils

Under the new national lockdown, all OAT schools have temporarily moved to remote learning. However, all academies remain open for vulnerable children and children of critical workers, and in line with the recent government announcement, we aim to open all of our schools from 8 March. For information or advice, contact your academy directly or visit your academy website for further information; click here.

Across the UK, schools have continued to have their education disrupted and as a Trust, we’re doing everything in our power to support our schools, pupils and staff, so we can ensure everyone can continue to thrive and succeed despite the impact of Covid-19. The safety and wellbeing of our pupils and staff is our number one priority and is at the heart of every decision that we make. We know things are very different this academic year yet again but we have already shown we can adapt to these news ways of working to ensure everyone’s safety.

We continue to be in awe of the way in which our school community has, and continues to pull together and has found ways to carry on, connect and collaborate, to achieve more together!

Remote education

In accordance with government statutory guidelines, all of our schools now provide information for parents and carers about what they are doing to support a child’s remote education. This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency about what to expect from remote education if Covid-19 restrictions require pupils to remain at home and/or if they need to self-isolate.
