WVAT Covid-19 Statement


In line with the recent publication of the government’s roadmap setting out the next steps in terms of dealing with the Covid-19 emergency, Waveney Valley Academies Trust have worked closely with our school leaders to build an approach to further facilitate the opening of our schools.

We have created our own roadmap which outlines the order in which wider opening will be undertaken. We believe that our own approach is in line with that of central government, with a focus on monitoring and review to assess any increased risk as children are gradually reintroduced to a school environment, albeit one with a very different feel to the school they left back in March.

The Trust will ensure that all appropriate resources are available to schools, and that appropriate safety measures are implemented, in line with government advice. As a Trust, we pride ourselves on collaborative working and therefore have an expectation that every staff member, parent and young person will continue to support and work with our school leaders as we welcome young people back to the classrooms. Obviously it is essential that the new, covid-secure practices, which have been put in place under government guidelines for everybody’s safety, are followed. The Trust will support school leader’s decisions around proportionate responses and/or action where students / pupils fail to follow these guidelines.

In conclusion, we would like to express our thanks and our gratitude for the work our staff have undertaken so far in these unprecedented times, and for their ongoing collective efforts over the next few weeks and months.

Please use this GUIDE to help you to decide whether to send your child to school if he/she becomes unwell.

Dear Parents and Carers,


We would like to welcome you and your family to our school. We hope that your child/children will be very happy at Roman Hill and will enjoy being part of our school community. This website is intended to give details of the school, its operation and organisation. If you have any questions, concerns or worries while your child is at the school, please do not hesitate to come in and discuss these with us.

We aim to create a happy learning environment in our school and believe that your child’s education is a partnership between home and school.  The Primary phase of education is absolutely vital for future educational success, and we will do our utmost to enable your child to achieve the highest standards.  There will be many opportunities for you to visit the school and share in our activities.  We look forward to working with you.

Yours sincerely,


Jackie Etteridge
