How We Are Managing The Risk Of Covid-19
At Manchester Academy, our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. A lot has changed since we were all since our whole community was last in school together, and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that our site is as safe as can possibly be when it comes to managing the risk presented to us by Covid-19.
January 2021 update:
We are working to keep Manchester Academy as safe as possible. We are now teaching remotely as part of the response to reduce infection. Alongside these measures, you may be aware that testing for those without coronavirus symptoms is beginning across the country using new, quicker COVID-19 tests known as ‘lateral flow tests’. Please click here for a letter and consent form explaining more information, which needs to be returned to school as soon as possible.
This covid consent form is also available in Arabic, Somali and Urdu.

A polite reminder to all families, if anyone in the household has COVID symptoms then EVERYONE in the household must self-isolate until a test result is available. If the test result is positive then everyone must self-isolate for 10 days from when symptoms started. Please click here to read a letter about self-isolating translated into Somali, Arabic and Urdu. This letter is also available to listen to on audio in Somali, Arabic and Urdu.
