Further to the guidelines set out above, King’s will be adding additional measures to the academy as we move our Alert Status Level to Red/Amber.  This elevation is to ensure that we respond proactively and remain ahead of the national increase.

In addition to our existing systems , we will be implementing the following measures from Monday 21st of September.  These systems are being introduced to ensure the safety of both students and the community:

  • Students will need to bring in a packed lunch to school and will eat in their house group room. This is to reduce mixing of students in the refectory, strengthen social distancing and enable us to track and trace as effectively as possible.  As soon as the Alert Status Level drops again, we will revert to family dining.

  • For parents and students unable to supply a packed lunch, cold packed lunches will be available to purchase daily. However, the range of food will not be as extensive as our usual offer. Any student entitled to free school meals will have automatic access to the packed lunch menu.  This will be organised electronically using Google Drive.  Funds can be credited to student accounts in the usual way.

  • Morning break time will be zoned to allow students time outside the building in traceable areas. Therefore, we request that students bring their own snack and outdoor coat should the weather become colder.  In wet weather, students will return to their House Group Rooms.
