Work will be made available for Years 7, 11 and Post 16 on Monday for students who also don't have internet access.

Following Government instruction, KSCS will be closed from Monday, except for children of key workers and vulnerable children

It is with regret that following the Government’s announcement this evening, we will shut the school on Friday afternoon at 3.15pm.  We will remain closed until further notice except for children of key workers and vulnerable children, as part of the country’s ongoing response to coronavirus.

We await the definition of both the term “key workers” and “vulnerable students”, which we expect to be clarified by the Government tomorrow, or Friday at the latest.
In these uncertain times, we also wish to ensure that we will aim to offer as much support to children, families and staff as we can.

    • We have packs of work ready to go out that complement the online learning already set – we will be open over the next two school days and beyond to distribute this out now for Years 8-10 on Thursday and Years 11-Post16 on Friday.
    • Please come to reception to collect these either as a parent or a student from 9.30 – 2pm from Thursday to Friday.

    • Please note we are in the process of not overloading students with academic learning, but wellbeing, fitness and habit strategies.  A student and parent guide is in the process of being developed – please see website for further information.

    • We extend the invitation of families that would be in receipt of FSM to take up the offer of a school meal on Thursday and Friday during 12 -1pm. We would ask that you phone in using the school main line  01733 765950 and press 3 to confirm your child will be taking up the meal.

    • We will be publishing a FAQ over the next 24 hours on questions raised by families that we have answers to.

We hope you understand that we are facing very turbulent and uncertain times, but will make our best efforts to keep you informed of a situation outside our control.
I urge you to follow Government health advice support each another to ensure we can work through this challenge.

Best wishes

Mr B Erwin
