Coronavirus Update / FSM Update

Further information about how our Trust and schools are taking necessary precautions since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, can be found in our Trust’s ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) website section’.


If any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility and is unable to provide childcare at home, you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing admin@goodwinacademy.org.uk or calling 01304 403 103 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday. Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.

Online Safety help page

We are all now living in a digital world.

The choices we make online are as important as the choices we make in the real world.

At Goodwin Academy we recognise this and want to provide our community with the following helpful links to help us learn and grow. These links will provide information about some of the consequences of sharing information and how to stay safe online.
