Welcome to Kingstone High School

Information for Parents and Carers of Year 10 Students Only

Return to School for Year 10

Firstly, let me thank you for persevering through what has been an incredibly difficult and uncertain situation.  You will now be aware of the government’s intention that Year 10 will start to get some face to face time with their teachers from the week starting 1st June, providing all of their five tests have been met. It is, as I write, uncertain that the scientific evidence will be supportive of a return at that time.

We are as eager as anyone to get Year 10 back into school and learning, but only when we are satisfied that it is safe for that to happen. Therefore, we have put in place detailed plans for a possible return of Year 10 on Monday 8th of June. We believe that the delay for a further week will allow us sufficient time to digest and respond to any suggested changes in the government or scientific advice. Please be aware that this date too may also be moved should the scientific advice require it.

Once we have assurances from the government, we will contact you again confirming the start date and releasing details of the planning and risk assessments that have been created in readiness.  Many thanks for your support and patience.  

Please note: the arrangements for vulnerable children and the children of key workers in all Year groups remain unchanged.

    We have also added a new section called Wellbeing During School Closure where you will find Pastoral advice and support and some resources and things to do which are not work related.

    We have also created a Student Lockdown Showcase  in TEACHING AND LEARNING where you will see some of the fantastic examples of students' work done at home. Also see our Galleries  where we have created albums of the photographs students are sending in.  

    Teachers contact with Students 

    Please note that teachers are also sending work out by email-  all students should check their school emails (via Outlook 365) to find the work they have been set.

    Information on how to access Outlook 365 ( Student Guide for Outlook 365) in order for students to access their school email account is attached in the NEWS AND EVENTS/ Letters Home section.  Outlook 365 provides free Word and other resources for students.
