We all have our part to play in helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus. This means we must stay at home to protect the NHS and help save lives.

 

Community Classrooms for vulnerable students and key workers’ children

 

Parents should keep children at home wherever possible and thanks to everyone across our community who has followed that advice. The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in our Community Classrooms, the lower the risk of the virus spreading.

 

The purpose of our Community Classroom is to provide care for the children of key workers and children who are vulnerable. Only children in these categories can attend. Information on the list of key workers is here:

Any parents who want their children to attend the Community Classroom must have arranged this with the school first. We will regularly ask parents to re-confirm if they want to continue using the Community Classroom in school.

 

We are working to maintain as much stabilityfor the students’ education as possible. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we have set up our Distance Learning Hub for pupils to access work and lessons each work. The Hub can be accessed here: https://arkkingsacademy.org/distance-learning

 

In addition, we can confirm that exams due to take place in May and June have been cancelled by the Department for Education. We will update this page and keep in touch with parents and students via letter, text and Twitter.

Please continue to follow health guidance.
