COVID-19 Update – 8th November 2020

Year 11 and Year 10: All students are expected to attend school as normal.

Year 9: We have been advised of a positive case of COVID-19 over the weekend. As a result all Year 9 students are to isolate at home on Monday 9th November 2020.

This includes those Year 9 students who were previously identified as contacts, and were initially due to return to school on Monday.

We are asking all Year 9 students to remain at home and access the live lessons and remote learning whilst we identify further close contacts. Students must be available to meet their form tutor, virtually, at 8:30am via their Google Classroom.

Year 8: Students in Year 8 are to remain home on Monday 9th November 2020. We expect the vast majority to return Tuesday 10th November 2020.

Year 7: Students in Year 7 who were previously isolating are to return to school as planned on Monday 9th November 2020.

Year 9 COVID-19 Update – 7th November 2020

We have been informed that a student in Year 9 at The Kingsway School has tested positive for COVID-19. We are in contact with our local Health Protection Team and Local Authority and are implementing the measures which they recommend.

We would like to reassure all students and parents that we are working closely with the relevant authorities to minimise the impact.

All Year 9 students must remain at home on Monday 9th November while we conduct track and trace to identify close contacts.

Students should login to form time via Google Classroom at 8:30am for further instructions about work to complete.

We will send out further information and advice as we receive it.

Year 8 COVID-19 Update – 6th November 2020

We are still compiling the close contact list for Year 8, and have not finished this process.

Those we have been able to identify will receive a phone call from school and a letter from Public Health England. Unfortunately, this means that all students will need to continue their isolation and will not be able to attend school on Monday. Work will be set for students via Class Charts and Google Classroom.

At 8.30am all students will need to attend their virtual tutor meeting through Google Classroom. A further update will be provided on Monday.

COVID-19 Update – 5th November 2020

We have been informed that a student in Year 8 at The Kingsway School has been tested positive for COVID-19. We are in contact with our local Health Protection Team and Local Authority and are implementing the measures which they recommend.

We would like to reassure all students and parents that we are working closely with the relevant authorities to minimise the impact.

With immediate effect we are in the process of dismissing Year 8 students.

Year 8 will need to isolate at home until early further notice. We are working to identify close contacts. Our intention is to allow those who are not direct close contacts back into school as soon as possible.

Students should log in to form time via Google Classroom at 8:30am for further instructions about work to complete.

We will send out further information and advice as we receive it.

COVID-19 Half Term Update – 28th October 2020

Unfortunately, we have been notified that two of our students have tested positive for COVID-19 during the half term holiday. One is in Year 7 and the other in Year 9. Both of these students were in school, for at least a day, when they might have been infectious.

We have already identified close contacts and have communicated with the affected families through our Schoolcomms system. These students will now have to self-isolate, but other members of the family do not.
The case in Year 7 largely affects members of forms 7G and 7N.

If you believe we have missed your son or daughter from the list of close contacts, please inform the relevant Pastoral Head of Year for further advice.

Those students who are close contacts will not be able to return to school until Monday 9th November. Later this week, we will issue further information explaining how work will be set.

All other students will return on Tuesday 3rd November as normal.
