On Monday 4th January 2021, the Prime Minister announced that schools are to temporarily partially close to all but critical worker and vulnerable children, as a result of the rising infection rates and the new variant COVID strain. All other children will learn remotely. The Senior Leadership Team are constantly working hard to consider potential risks and all the actions needed to be taken in order to mitigate and reduce the risks (wherever possible). Alongside the risk assessment below, we have created a thorough action plan, which outlines key areas for consideration including the cleaning regime, hygiene standards, our pupil and staff's mental health/well-being, the curriculum offer and the organisation of the day.Thank you to all of our children and families for their continued support.

At Redhill Primary Academy, we are proud of our pupils, our staff and the positive atmosphere they create. The supportive ethos within the school enables pupils of all abilities to thrive as they grow and develop. We recognise the importance of achieving high standards as well as developing well rounded individuals. Our aim is to encourage personal individual success and to expect maximum commitment in all activities. The school's provision allows pupils to recognise the joy of achievement both within and outside of the statutory curriculum. At Redhill, we value all areas of the curriculum offering a broad range of learning opportunities across a wide range of subjects. We are proud to be recognised as a school which embraces global links, having achieved The International School Award by the British Council. This works hand in hand with our Fairtrade School Status and therefore fulfils our aim to equip our pupils to become global citizens of the future, who are able to make a positive contribution. The Science Gold Quality Mark, Gold Arts Mark and P.E. awards also show our commitment to the development of the scientific, technological, artistic, creative and sporting talents of our children, enabling them to achieve their potential in all aspects of their lives. Our commitment and enthusiasm for sport is celebrated locally. We strive to create a positive attitude towards P.E and it is hoped that the children will gain enjoyment from the physical education, thus promoting a healthy lifestyle alongside the delivery of lessons on the importance of mental health and well-being. Furthermore, we place a strong emphasis on reading as we recognise that this is the key to unlock all other learning and underpins the rest of the curriculum.
