Our Tribute

Marking the passing of Queen Elizabeth II

Everyone at Newmarket Academy join the nation in paying tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She showed incredible service, dedication and devotion and was an inspiration to us all.

During this period of very hot weather, we are already taking actions to protect children and staff.  We are experiencing a level 3 heatwave alert and the Met Office has issued an Amber Extreme Heat Warning (Medium Likelihood of High Impacts), a rare amber warning about extreme heat at the beginning of the week beginning 18 July to cover the potential impacts from the high temperatures including a danger to life.  These could include health impacts on the most vulnerable in our society including those with pre-existing medical conditions, such as cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, but it can also lead to heatstroke and heat exhaustion even on those who are normally fit and healthy.

Please read the attached Heatwave Risk Assessment to see the measures we are taking.

Through unity there is strength

Through recent times, the strength, resilience and humanity that can be achieved through cooperation and unity has been exemplified in so many ways, from the exceptional way that our staff and young people have weathered the storm of the pandemic to their extraordinary achievements in it’s wake and the unifying event that has been the Queen’s platinum jubilee. The Unity Schools Partnership’s 2022 summer arts festival celebrates this sense of unity and the creativity of the young people across our partnership.

Celebrate with us and look at the incredible work our students from across the trust have created and been a part of from the padlet below.
