Welcome to Thrybergh Academy



 Statement from Thrybergh Academy 12/05/2020

 Following the Prime Minister's speech last night regarding the gradual removal of lockdown measures, I'm writing to give some clarity on what we now know:

  • Secondary schools will remain closed for the foreseeable future. There is no proposed date for our re-opening as yet.
  • Schools will continue to operate a skeleton service in school for the children of key workers and some more vulnerable pupils. The key worker list published by the government has not changed. The advice remains that you should only send your child to school if it is absolutely necessary.
  • The Prime Minister stated that he hoped that students taking exams next year (our Y10 students) would have some time with their teachers before the summer holidays. However, there is no date for when this might happen, and at present there is no certainty that it will.
  • We can assume that students in years 7, 8 & 9 will not return to school before September.

In the meantime, our teachers will continue to set work for students according to their schedule, and our support staff and pastoral team are available via email for additional support.

We are proud of how well our school community - students, parents and staff - have adapted to working from home. Since our schools closed their doors to the vast majority of students on Friday 20th March, I have been overwhelmed by the level of support we have shown one another across the Trust. These are challenging times for all of us and I am incredibly proud of how Wickersley Partnership Trust has pulled together as one school family across many sites.

We all, students and staff, miss the hustle, bustle and sheer joy of learning in our schools. All of our students continue to work hard and never give less than their best in the most challenging and somewhat confusing circumstances. Throughout this unprecedented and demanding time we should all take great comfort and delight in the quality and quantity of work that continues to happen across our Trust, be it on site by the children of key workers or off site from those working from home.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and should we get any new advice from the Government, the Department for Education or Rotherham Local Authority, we will inform you immediately. We will communicate with you through parent text service and keep you updated through social media and here on the school website.

It hasn't been easy for any of us, but there is a commitment within our community to make it work as best we can for the benefit of our children. As always, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email head@thrybergh.com 

Thanks for your continued support in these uncharted circumstances

David Burnham - Headteacher.

Message from the School Based Immunisation Co-ordinator

Due to the current closure of schools, the school based immunisation programme is temporarily paused. If your child has missed a planned immunisation session or clinic appointment, we will reschedule as soon as we are able.

We will provide definite dates regarding planned vaccination days once schools re-open.

Please do not hesitate to contact myself or the Immunisation Team if you require any further information.
