PLEASE READ: IMPORTANT NOTICES IN INTRODUCTION.

Please use the menu following Mr Mercer-Kelly’s introduction to quickly access letters, news and reminders relevant to your year group (s).

Dear Parents,

As the term draws to a close, I would like to wish you all a good break and a well-earned rest. This has been a long term for students and I hope that you and your family find some time to relax and refresh. Many students will be revising in preparation for their upcoming exams, and I wish you all the very best with your study programmes. Aim high! 

Pupils across the whole school have been busy term with many sporting and performing arts events as well. It has been a pleasure to see lots of parents at these events as well as we have returned to the more usual way of operating as a Kingsley community. Earlier in the term the senior school students challenged themselves during the Reach Higher Homework week and you can see a sample of the wonderful and creative work that our students produced across the full spectrum of subjects at the link below;

We look forward to seeing pupils for the start of term on Tuesday 26th April for our Summer Term. 

With kind regards, 

James Mercer-Kelly
Headteacher

 

Important notices

Covid-19 Update 

As you will be aware, the Government has issued its Living with Covid-19 plan: 

www.gov.uk/government/news/new-guidance-sets-out-how-to-live-safely-with-covid-19 

Testing is no longer recommended to detect/confirm asymptomatic or symptomatic cases of Covid-19 and it is not recommended that children and young people are tested for Covid-19 unless directed to by a health professional. In addition, the Government has withdrawn school specific guidance.  

Amongst other things, the updated guidance seeks to balance prioritising face-to-face educational provision with managing the ongoing health situation. From the start of the Summer Term, we will no longer be providing remote learning for most pupils affected by Covid-19.  

  • If a pupil is unwell, they should be resting until they are well enough to return to the classroom.  
  • If they are not unwell and do not have a high temperature, then advice is that they remain at school.  

We will keep this under review.  In the event of a major outbreak at one of our schools, it continues to be the case that we may be advised to take additional measures, including a temporary return to remote learning for some pupils. 

 

Vaping 

I would like to share with you information passed on to us by Warwickshire County Council who have made us aware of the illegal sale of nicotine vapes and e-cigarettes to underage pupils. The possession or consumption of any of these items is not permitted at The Kingsley School and is a very serious offence.

Exam Invigilation 

Do you have some time to spare in May and/or June? Would you like to support the school by offering your services as an invigilator?  

We will need a group of responsible adults to provide occasional support to the Exams Office throughout the coming exams season which runs from mid-May until late June. The work involves helping to set up examination venues, supervising the exams themselves, maintaining good order and dealing with any issues that may arise. You need to be organised, calm under pressure and have a genuine interest in working with young people at what can be quite a stressful time in their lives. Invigilators are paid £9.50 per hour and can work for anything from 2-6 hours per day.  

If you are interested in being added to our list of invigilators, please contact Graham Senior, Exams Officer and Administrator via email g.senior@kingsleyschool.co.uk or telephone 01926 331894. We will then arrange for you to receive an application form and come in for an informal interview. Preference will be given to people who do not have an immediate family member taking public examinations this summer.  

 

Contacting the School during the holidays 

The school office is open sporadically during the holidays and staff will attend to emails sent to schooloffice@kingsleyschool.co.uk as soon as they can. If you have an urgent school matter that requires the attention of the Senior Leadership Team please contact SLTadmin@kingsleyschool.co.uk. 

If your email is of an urgent safeguarding nature please go to https://www.safeguardingwarwickshire.co.uk/report-it where you can access support options or you can contact Children and Families Front Door on 01926 414144 Monday – Thursday 8.30am-5.30pm, 8.30am-5.00pm Friday. In an emergency outside of these hours telephone: The Social Care Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on 01926 886922. If your email relates to a serious concern for the immediate safety of a student please contact the police on 111 or 999.
