Welcome

Summer Term 2022

This term we have celebrated student successes in our assemblies, with achievements in sports festivals, primary link mentoring and student voice partnership work. We were also very proud to see that three of our students won Somerset Pride of Youth Awards. Year 11 has been coping well with their exams and still managing to smile! We are now looking towards end of year assessments, sports day, work experience for Year 10 and welcoming Year 6 students for their transition days. 

Please see our newsletters for further updates.

Covid Testing

The government has removed the legal requirement to self isolate following a positive test. However, students who test positive will continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least five full days and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received two negative test results on consecutive days.

When to stay at home if you have coronavirus (COVID-19) and what to do – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Please report any Covid-19 absences on Class Charts or the attendance line: 01823 348201

Safeguarding 

We recognise that keeping our students safe and promoting their well being is of paramount importance and it scaffolds all we do as a school. If you have a safeguarding concern you should contact the school office in the usual way. If you are unable to do this, please email safeguarding@thetauntonacademy.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

You are also welcome to contact our safeguarding leads; Mrs Jenny Webb or Mrs Tamara Dixon during term time. If your concern is urgent, you should consider contacting the emergency services or the Children’s Social Care duty team on 0300 1232224.
