WVAT Covid-19 Statement

WVAT Covid-19 Statement

In line with the recent publication of the government’s roadmap setting out the next steps in terms of dealing with the Covid-19 emergency, Waveney Valley Academies Trust have worked closely with our school leaders to build an approach to further facilitate the opening of our schools.

We have created our own roadmap which outlines the order in which wider opening will be undertaken. We believe that our own approach is in line with that of central government, with a focus on monitoring and review to assess any increased risk as children are gradually reintroduced to a school environment, albeit one with a very different feel to the school they left back in March. 

The Trust will ensure that all appropriate resources are available to schools, and that appropriate safety measures are implemented, in line with government advice. As a Trust, we pride ourselves on collaborative working and therefore have an expectation that every staff member, parent and young person will continue to support and work with our school leaders as we welcome young people back to the classrooms. Obviously it is essential that the new, covid-secure practices, which have been put in place under government guidelines for everybody’s safety, are followed. The Trust will support school leader’s decisions around proportionate responses and/or action where students / pupils fail to follow these guidelines.

In conclusion, we would like to express our thanks and our gratitude for the work our staff have undertaken so far in these unprecedented times, and for their ongoing collective efforts over the next few weeks and months.

Our Vision

Vision Statement
At Northgate Community Primary School our Vision is for children to be proud of themselves and strive to be the best that they can; to feel understood and supported to achieve success; to be safe and happy; to learn the skills to give them confidence to face the future; to know how to behave well; to be treated equally and to feel important within their school, family and the wider community.

In order to achieve this Vision we promise to encourage the following in our pupils:

Motivation and enthusiasm for their learning and a desire to do their best.

Secure competency in the basic skills for learning.
To begin to take responsibility for aspects of their own learning and gain in confidence and self-esteem.
Respect for the feelings and property of others with appropriate behaviour and self-discipline.
Effective skills and progress in relation to their prior attainment and future potential.
Aspirations for the future in a nurturing, supportive environment where citizenship and its associated responsibilities are evident.

"We are proud of ourselves and want to be the best we can"

"I know that I need to work hard to learn skills that give me confidence to face the future"

"Everyone here behaves well and we are all treated equally."
