How We Are Managing The Risk Of Covid-19


At Stockport Academy, our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. A lot has changed since we were all since our whole community was last in school together, and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that our site is as safe as can possibly be when it comes to managing the risk presented to us by Covid-19.
Students and their families should be aware of key changes - details of which can be found below. A copy of our Risk Assessment can be requested here

Testing of Students

We are requesting that students undertake lateral flow tests twice weekly at home, and log their results directly with the NHS. Testing kits can be collected from your local pharmacy. If your child tests positive, please inform the school and book a PCR test for them immediately.

On Arrival

  • Sanitising stations are located around school and students are invited to use these on entry.
  • Students will be asked to enter the building by different entrances and to remain in one designated area to limit mixing of year groups; Year 7 Main Hall, Year 8 Sports Hall, Year 9 Refectory, Year 10 Sports Hall, Year 11 Atrium/MUGA

Around School

  • The most effective method of reducing transmission of the virus is to wash and clean hands regularly - this will be encouraged.
  • We are operating a one-way system around school to encourage distancing between individuals when possible.
  • All doors in the academy as far as possible will be open in order to improve ventilation and reduce touchpoints in school.
