School Day

Due to the current Covid Situation, all schools, ACE include are running revised timetables and school days as part of our pro-active measures designed to reduce the risk of student and staff infections.

These measures include:

  • a later start to the day so students do not need to use public transport during peak hours
  • daily health checks for all staff and students on arrival
  • ACE start and end times avoid timings of neighbouring schools
  • temporary suspension of ACE and School dual registered students
  • the reduction in the number of alternative provisions being used
  • limits on class sizes and numbers in rooms
  • use of a one-way system around the ACE building
  • social distancing signs and reminders
  • provision of hand sanitisers at every classroom and in all communal spaces
  • only having essential visitors to the ACE site
  • moving all meetings online wherever possible
