Update from HT – 4th September 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,
Just a short update on the Covid situation in the school. Every measure we can think of is being taken to ensure we limit the spread of the virus within Cumbernauld Academy. Students have been excellent at sanitising their hands and most students have managed to bring their own face-coverings. However, we are now issuing more than 200 temporary face-coverings each day which is less than brilliant for the environment, Any support you can offer at home regarding bringing their own masks would be greatly appreciated.
Currently we have 12 students who have tested positive in Cumbernauld Academy and 2 members of staff. All are now self-isolating at home and we wish them a speedy recovery. I will keep you all updated with this situation.
Have a lovely weekend
Mark

Important Information from HT – 1st September 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope that you are well and that you managed to have a nice summer break.

I am writing to inform you that in the short term I have been asked to provide additional leadership support to another Secondary school in the Local Authority.  Please be assured that I will continue in my position as Head Teacher of Cumbernauld Academy, ably supported by my leadership team, but will be splitting my time between both establishments.  I will continue to link with my leadership team and will be available to support, as necessary.

I appreciate your understanding and support.

Kind regards

Mark
