Parents will be aware of concerns following news of a small number of confirmed coronavirus patients in Europe, including in Northern Italy and Tenerife. This has coincided with the half term break, when many schools support students with travel including ski trips.
Long Field Academy has not supported half-term travel to areas where there are confirmed coronavirus diagnoses: however, we appreciate that parents may have arranged independent travel during half-term.
Government advice is that any families who have returned from Iran, specific areas of Northern Italy comprising thirteen towns south of Milan, identified areas in South Korea or in Hubei province in China in the last fourteen days should stay indoors and contact NHS 111. This advice applies whether or not there is anyone showing the flu-like symptoms associated with coronavirus in the home.
The Spencer Academies Trust continues to monitor NHS advice closely, and is acting under advice from Public Health England.
Advice available from Trust websites will be updated daily throughout the week beginning 24 February.
Welcome to Long Field Academy
Welcome to Long Field Academy. I hope you find our website full of useful information about our wonderful school. I have really enjoyed being the Principal here since September 2015. The school was recently recognised by OFSTED as good and provides a perfect balance of exciting teaching and learning with a wide range of support for our students combined with exciting opportunities beyond the curriculum. The school is small compared to most comprehensives and this ensures that all students are really well looked after and are well equipped for life in our World today.
Ours is a modern, forward-thinking school which embraces new opportunities within teaching and learning as well as offering a wealth of excellent extracurricular opportunities, some of which are unique to our school. If you would like to come and see the school in action, visit the secret reading room, water the cactus garden, look at the range of fantastic displays or just see the students working hard please get in touch.
Access from home, school emails, parents evening bookings and more.
Challenging and supporting all schools within the Trust on their journey to and beyond outstanding.
