COVID-19

Last Updated 01.03.2022

This page will be updated by West Norfolk Academies Trust with information on the status of our schools in relation to the coronavirus outbreak.


WNAT - COVID-19 Policy

As you may be aware we receive regular updates from the Government regarding the opening of our schools and the necessary requirements we are advised to put into place to provide a safe environment for our students and staff.

The Trustees hold fortnightly meetings with members of the WNAT Executive team to ensure that we are prepared for all eventualities.

The following link will take you to our COVID-19 Policy 

Coronavirus Policy 

It is important to understand that this document is dynamic and live and will be updated regularly to ensure that the Policy reflects the latest government guidance.

Each school, within the trust will apply the policy to their own settings. Ensuring that every member of staff is clear on their role and school procedures and that the school regularly reflects on how well the implementation of the policy is proceeding. 

If you have any questions regarding the Coronavirus Policy please direct them to your child's school in the first instance.

NHS Test and Trace

We may be required to pass on the contact details you provide to us when signing in as a visitor or contractor at one of our schools to HM Government as part of the NHS 'Test and Trace' scheme. While we encourage you to allow us to share your contact information with the Test and Trace teams if necessary, it is not mandatory and you will be given the option to opt out of this service during the sign in process at your school.
