Schools' Re-opening Announcement - February/March 2021
The government has confirmed its intention for all students, in both primary and secondary schools, to return to school from Monday 8th March.
Secondary schools are being asked to offer students three lateral flow tests on site (leaving 3-5 days between each test).Testing remains optional but 'strongly encouraged'. Students can return to learning on site once they have had one negative test (or been offered one test and declined). After they have had their three tests onsite the government says that students will be able to test themselves at home twice weekly and that home testing kits will be provided for this purpose. Our testing will start on Wednesday 3rd March and all students will return to school on Monday 8th March.
A letter outlining our full plans for the students' return to school can be viewed here.
Thank you for your continued support.

Remote Learning Information
The government ordered all schools in England to close to all students, except for the children of keyworkers and those in certain vulnerable groups, from Tuesday 5th January 2021. King's School is therefore closed to all students, except those attending the keyworker provision, until the 8th March.
Students will follow their usual timetables online. PSHE will not be delivered online to any students for the time being. Core PE will not be delivered for Year 10 and Year 11 students. Students will have free study periods at these times. Music, Drama, Art, DT and PE will not be delivering 'live' lessons to Key Stage 3 students but assignments will be posted for these subjects and staff will be available online to answer students' questions on assignments in the online 'chat'. Morning registration will not run for any students so they should be online for 8:40am, ready to start lessons. Afternoon tutor time will run online for all year groups, at students' usual time, from the date when their full online provision starts.
You can find further information about our remote learning offer here.
Thank you for your understanding and support as we navigate this third lockdown together. Please be assured of our commitment to providing the best possible online education and your care for your children through these very challenging weeks ahead.
