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 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 email firstname.lastname@example.org, otherwise we cannot guarantee places.
We will confirm with parents on a weekly basis if they want to continue using the Community Classroom in school.
We are working to maintain as much stability for the students’ education as possible. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we are putting in place plans to make sure students can still access work and teachers are able to support their learning. Exams due to take place in May and June have been cancelled.
Please continue to follow health guidance.
Thank you to everyone for your understanding during these challenging times and a heartfelt thanks to our NHS and key workers who are working so hard to look after us all.
If you need to contact the school, please email email@example.com
STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS, SAVE LIVES
PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NO LONGER BE SENDING ANY LETTERS IN THE POST. ALL CORRESPONDENCE WILL BE VIA EMAIL AND CAN BE FOUND ON THE SCHOOL WEBSITE
UPDATE Sunday 22nd March 2020 11am
As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing.
And the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
That is why the government has asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend
Update on Coronavirus – This school will CLOSE at the normal time on March 20 AND REMAIN CLOSED until further notice.
As part of its announcement about schools, the Government also said that;
- Exams will not take place in May and June
- Schools will be open to help support the children of key workers and for vulnerable students
- Provision for food will be made for students who qualify for Free School Meals
- We expect further details on how this will work in the coming days and will liaise closely with the Department for Education to ensure that we support our key worker parents and vulnerable students in any way we can.
Our other key aim is to ensure and maintain as much stability for the students’ education as possible and we have been planning for this outcome. Whilst it is not possible to fully replicate the educational experience at home, we have been working hard to put in place contingency plans to ensure students can still access work and teachers are able to support their learning.
Please keep checking this websites for any updates.
While schools are closed, we should all continue to follow health guidance.

At these periods of uncertainty, it is essential that we have up to date email addresses for all parents. If you haven’t recently received an email from us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with up to date contact details.
This is an unsettling and disruptive time for everyone and we will work together as a school and local community to face the challenging times ahead. Thank you for your support and understanding during these exceptional circumstances. If we can do anything more to help your family, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Welcome from our Principal, Ms Lucy Frame
I am delighted to welcome you to Ark All Saints Academy.
We aim for all scholars to leave Ark All Saints Academy equipped with the skills necessary for success at university or to pursue a career of their choice. There are no excuses; we wish nothing less for our scholars than we would for our own children.
Ark All Saints Academy opened in September 2013 welcoming its first cohort of scholars. Our academy offers excellent opportunities for local children and we moved into our wonderful new building in January 2014.
Our values and ethos are based in Christian principles and whilst we welcome people of all faith and none, we expect all scholars to respect each other's faith.
