UPDATES

From Monday 23rd March, schools across the country will be closed to the majority of pupils.

Breakwater Academy will be open between 9am and 3pm, to our most vulnerable learners and the children of key workers.

All families of vulnerable learners have been contacted directly and the below letter offers guidance on the definition of keyworkers and the circumstances under which their children should attend school.

Keyworker Letter

Using our in-house catering service, we will provide meals for children on-site and have written to the families of children who are eligible for free school meals to extend our continued support.

HOME LEARNING

Learning packs have been sent home, providing resources to use over the next 2 weeks.

If the academy remains closed for a longer period, we will add further resources online and a link will be added to this section of the website.
