COVID-19 advice – when to keep your child at home

As you are aware, we are fully open after a long break away from our usual teaching and learning.
We have received a large number of requests from parents wanting advice on whether their child should come in to the Academy. This notice is to remind parents and carers of key advice regarding COVID-19 symptoms.
If your child displays any of the symptoms listed below, please do not send them to the Academy. In line with Government guidance, if your child begins to display symptoms during the day we will contact you to collect them immediately, as previously advised. Please remind your child/ren to tell their teacher or any member of staff if they begin to feel unwell whilst in the Academy.
If you are in any doubt about whether or not your child should be in the Academy, please refer to the guidance issued by Suffolk County Council  and/or call 111 for advice.
For further clarity:
Only get a test for your children if they have one or more of the following symptoms:
🔴 A high temperature. This means they feel hot to touch on their chest or back (you do not need to measure temperature).
🔴 A persistent cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If they usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual.
🔴 A change in, or loss of, their sense of taste and smell – This means they have noticed they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
You can read some of the national guidance here:
Thank you for your support and vigilance
Caroline Wilson


To protect you and your child, to maintain the safety of our students and staff, and in order to comply with government guidance and avoid having groups of visitors into the building, we regret that we will not be running our Open Week tours or holding our Showcase Open Evening this year.

We appreciate that this may be very frustrating for parents who have visited the Academy before, however we also hope that those parents will appreciate the reason for this decision and support us in avoiding the unnecessary risks of inviting people into the Academy.

Very shortly, we hope to be able to offer some ‘virtual’ support for parents/carers who are faced with making the decision on sending their child to us in September 2021 and we will ensure that this is made available, here, at the earliest possible time.

Thank you in anticipation of your understanding and support for our efforts to uphold the government’s published social distancing measures.

Principal’s welcome

Principal C Wilson

Here at Ormiston Sudbury Academy we have the pleasure of enjoying a positive, successful working environment where expectations are high; on a daily basis we actively encourage all our students and staff to be the best they can be and be part of our thriving community.

I am proud and honoured to be the Principal of Ormiston Sudbury Academy; we are well on our way to becoming an outstanding, world-class academy. I’m determined that our students succeed and leave us as confident, articulate and aspirational young people, fully equipped for life and work in the 21st century. We have high expectations for our students and have created an environment in which each individual is supported and challenged to achieve their full potential, both inside and outside the classroom. Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff are committed to providing every young person with the very best opportunities and an education of the highest possible standard.

As an academy sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust we place keen focus on developing social enterprise. In a rapidly changing world, Ormiston Sudbury Academy offers a forward-thinking and dynamic learning environment where students benefit from a highly personalised and tailored curriculum underpinned by the use of innovative learning resources and a commitment to ensuring each and every student leaves us with the skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed.
