ATC News Update 08.01.2021

This is the second week of lockdown, the snow has begun to clear and our staff have been working hard to support all our students, remotely and face to face. Our ICT team have continued to work on the internet connection across the Trust so it is reliable and secure for both students and staff. They have also been in school, providing on site support across the trust.

We have been busy interviewing for two Operation Managers to join our team over at Thames Primary Academy and Roseacre Primary Academy. We were overwhelmed by the number of applications we received and we can’t wait to share news of our new appointments with you. Thank you to everyone that applied.

Our annual accounts are now available on the trust website and have been submitted to the ESFA.

By the end of this week lateral flow testing will have been rolled out in all four schools. Thank you to the staff who have organised and implemented this across our trust. Special thanks to:

  • Helen Dakin – Operations Manager at Bowland High
  • Rukshana Rafique – Operations Manager at Witton Park Academy
  • Angela Hilton – Deputy Head at Thames Primary Academy
  • Julie Logan – Deputy Head at Roseacre Primary Academy

All our schools have been busy making sure that our free school meal children have access to a healthy lunch, whether they are being taught on site or virtually. This is proving challenging due to the daily updates to the guidance issued to schools. If you have any queries please contact your school in the first instance.

This week our Human Resources and Marketing team have started to develop a staff Intranet. The aim will be to have a place where staff and the public can access ATC documents, policies and various other documentation in one place.

We also have a message from our Human Resource team that if you need us or want to talk about anything we are always here for you, please do not suffer in silence and together we will get through this.
