Public Health England - Information and advice

We would like to confirm that Barnsley Academy continues to follow the full advice of Public Health England (links below).
The advice from Public Health England at this time is that all schools should carry on as normal.
We will keep parents updated of any changes should there be any.


We continue to emphasise with both staff and pupils the importance of handwashing and hygiene, in line with the guidance about how best to prevent the spread of infection. We are taking opportunities to reinforce these messages regularly and to encourage staff and pupils to wash their hands at regular points throughout the school day.
