We are walking to Jamaica!

We are walking to Jamaica and are running an event on Wednesday 13th July. All students will be given the opportunity to walk for one lesson to accumulate the distance of 7500km from CTA to Jamaica. We need your help! You can choose to walk on Saturday 9th July or Sunday 10th July and join us. Please use a Fitbit/phone/pedometer or any other device that you may have that can measure your distance. Each member of your group that walks can record their distance. Please hand in the completed sheets via your child on Monday 11th July. Please also see the attached Fundraising Form for your child to collect if they wish to so that they can fundraise before the event. All monies need to be paid on the day of the event.


Councillor Di Evans opens CTA Safe Space

“This is the week of Children’s Mental Health and today I was invited to Chase Terrace Academy to open their Safe Space initiative for students who are suffering with mental health issues. It is a scheme which I was privileged to discuss with a specially trained group of students from years 8 to 13 who have been selected to support their peers on this important issue.

The room, that has been set up via funding from Tesco and Groundworks, is a sensory relaxing, restful and peaceful space that will enable students to discuss with their peers if they are stressed and finding it difficult to cope. As the words suggest it will provide a safe space for students who need support.

The students themselves are amazing and I am confident they will all give excellent help to their peers. The staff who have been involved in setting up this vital service have also done a great job in selecting, training and organising the students and setting up the room.

I am proud that Burntwood and in particular Chase Terrace Academy has young people who are so committed to giving up their time to helping others. Well done and congratulations to you all.”

End of Term Announcement

Due to a large number of staff out of school as a result of being contacted by track and trace, we have taken the difficult decision to close school at the end of the summer term today (15/7/21) for pupils. There will be online lessons provided tomorrow (Friday) by staff who are in school. Please check Satchel One for work for your child to complete tomorrow. We have also had six positive lateral flow device/PCR tests reported to us today. One case is in year 7, two in year 8, two in year 10 and one in year 12. Due to the significant impact this has on families when children are identified as a contact, especially so close to your holiday period, we do not want to risk any further disruption to you and your families. I hope that you understand the genuine reasons for our concerns and our actions. May I take this further opportunity to wish you a restful and enjoyable summer with your friends and families and I look forward to a more normal academic year for us all next year.

With kindest regards,

Ms Mason and the team at CTA.
