Easter Update

Dear Families,

It seems such a short time since we welcomed the students back into school and we now approach the Easter Holidays.  We have been delighted to see and hear the students back in our classrooms and corridors.

This week all students that are participating in testing will be issued with their next set of Covid-19 test kits.  Please continue to test throughout the Easter holiday and into next term.  Remember to report your child’s result online at www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result and you need to also, separately, inform school of the test result.  To log the result with the Academy please complete our quick form here or email admin@theebbsfleetacademy.kent.sch.uk

As part of our on-going requirement to monitor any COVID-19 cases within the school community please also read the attached information outlining the action required if your child should start to exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 during the Easter break. 

The last two terms of this academic year are very busy.  We have been revising our calendar in order to fit extra activities into our schedule.  Please see below a list of the key dates you need to be aware of in the upcoming months.  This list is not exhaustive of all the events that are planned, and may also be subject to change if COVID-19 restrictions change.

As you are aware, from previous correspondence, it is the intention of Brook Learning Trust to merge with Leigh Academy Trust from 1st September.  As such The Ebbsfleet Academy will be adopting the Leigh Academy Trust term dates from September 2021 onwards.  The major impact of this will be that the Autumn half term will change from week beginning 18th October to the week beginning Monday 25th October.  The autumn half term holiday will therefore run from Monday 25th October until Friday 5th November.  More details in relation to term dates will be issued shortly.

For the latest update on changes and events that are happening in our Academy please see our website www.theebbsfleetacademy.kent.sch.uk .  If we have any updates following any Government announcements during the break we will of course be in touch.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping our community safe. If you or your child need us during the period that your child is at home please get in touch via 01322 623100 or email admin@theebbsfleetacademy.kent.sch.uk 

We wish you all a very happy holiday! 

Yours faithfully,

Gurjit Kaur Shergill
