It is with heavy hearts that we close the school today, but we appreciate that this is the best and safest approach for everyone at this time. KA will be closed, but will provide childcare for the children of key workers should they not be able to be cared for at home.
Our dedicated staff will be working on a rota-basis to continue to provide this essential service, as well as planning lessons and work for students to complete at home. As well as lessons, please use this time to relax, learn new skills, care for one another and get outside in the fresh air (applying the social distancing strategy at all times).
We appreciate that the cancellation of exams is particularly disruptive for our Year 11 students; please be reassured that we will work with the exams boards to resolve the situation and notify you when further information becomes available. As the Prime Minister stated, your Year 11 child’s future prospects and next steps will not be hindered by our response to this unprecedented situation. I would also like to confirm that we will celebrate your hard work and successes when we return.
The coming months will be challenging for all our students and staff, and we want to remind you in these stressful times to take care of yourselves. Please follow NHS guidelines, practice social distancing and be kind to yourselves and others. We are fortunate to live in such a wonderful community and we know that people will pull together to help each other. Should you need any assistance, please refer to our website where you will find helpful information about managing at this time.
Wishing you good health, from everyone at King Arthur’s School.
