Parent Update

Dear Parents/Carers,

We will be sending out home test kits at the start of next week to cover the remaining Sunday and Wednesday test days for the rest of module 3 and the start of Module 4.  We are unsure when we will receive our next home test kit delivery, but will inform you as soon as possible if we experience any delivery delays or challenges.

We have experienced a significant number of staff absences due to the virus over recent weeks, but are working hard to minimise any impact this may have on students and the wider staff team. The academy community will continue to work together to minimise the spread of the virus and ask for your ongoing support as we do so.

The NHS will be delivering the 2nd COVID-19 vaccination clinic at LAB on Wednesday 9th February, please respond directly to them regarding consent. Correspondence was sent out by email on Monday 17th January 2022, please ensure you have completed the consent form by Friday 4th February. 

We are pleased to tell you that we have a new Schools Police Officer working with LAB as part of the Greenwich safer schools partnership.  PC Journet- Exon will be visiting the academy regularly to work directly with individuals, and groups of students. Over the next few weeks, along with other members of the safer schools team, he will be delivering assemblies to our students on staying safe, and occasionally joining the LAB staff team on duty at the end of the academy day.

Just a gentle reminder that the last day of this module is an inset day, so the module ends on Thursday 10th February at 3.00pm.  

Best Wishes, 

Emma Smith | Principal
