Letter to parents from David Gregory, CEO, TBMPT, especially ‘key-workers’ – urgent response needed (19th March 2020)
Drop-off and Pick-up
When you are bringing your children to school, please wash everyone’s hands before leaving home, then say Goodbye and hand over your child(ren) at the threshold. The children will then be asked to go in and wash their hands again before going in the classroom.
We are asking all adults to please NOT come into the school buildings.
At the end of the day, children will again wash their hands before leaving school. Please meet them outside and do not expect to come into the building. We are doing all we can to maximise ‘social distancing’ within the constraints in school.
We aim tomorrow to be posting the first pieces of work for children to be doing as part of their independent home learning. Please look out for it on your child’s year group page.
Please see the latest government advice for schools:
People who have a new, persistent (dry) cough, and/or a temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius, or above, and those who live with someone showing symptoms are being asked to stay at home for fourteen days (ten school days).
People with symptoms are no longer required to call 111, as the system is over-busy, but are urged to look on the NHS website and 111 online.
If your child, or anyone in your household has the above symptoms, please keep them home for ten school days and contact the school office to report that this is what you are doing.

Welcome from us all at Abbot Alphege Academy:
We are a growing one-form entry Church of England primary school in Bath. We opened in September 2017 with our first intake of children. Currently, we have 4 classes – Pipistrelle class (Reception and Year 1), Horseshoe class (Year 2), Barbastelle class (Year 3) and our oldest class, Natterers (Years 4 & 5).
As a school we celebrate our own heritage as a continuously evolving mix of cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. We strive to ensure that our children have positive, welcoming, internationalist outlooks so that they can become people who are ready to cherish the opportunities of a global workplace.
Above all, we are committed to ensuring that we always do our best, in everything we do. We seek the highest standards of academic, sporting, behavioural, artistic and social success.
Our firm belief is that every child is creative in some way or another, and as primary school teachers we have a unique role in nurturing that creativity by offering as many opportunities as possible for our children to explore. At Abbot Alphege Academy we do this through our wide ranging, topic-based curriculum as well as a variety of activities on offer through lunchtime breaks and after school clubs.
Central to almost everything we do are the expressive and creative arts. Teachers and tutors selected to work at Abbot Alphege Academy are of the highest calibre in terms of their teaching ability but we also have the expectation that they will bring particular expertise to further enhance our team.
Whilst our website will hopefully give a flavour of school, the best way to find out about us is to come and visit.
We welcome the opportunity to show you around and look forward to seeing you very soon – just contact the school office to arrange an appointment..
We are pleased to welcome prospective parents of children due to join Reception in September 2020.
Senior staff are always pleased to show prospective pupils’ parents the school at work and to hold individual meetings with parents to discuss the philosophy and aims of the school. Please telephone 01225 580 281 for an appointment.
