The Government recommends that if at all possible all children should remain at home with a parent or carer who does not fall into the at risk group to prevent the spread of Covid-19. As the site is now closed, if your child does attend Burnage Academy for Boys, you fall into the vulnerable or keyworker group, he cannot be cared for at home and you do wish for him to attend a school then please follow this link for support from Manchester City Council:
