    Covid-19 Symptoms

    Please be especially careful to look out for symptoms given the high numbers of Covd-19 cases across the country at the moment. The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

    • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
    • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
    • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

    Critical Worker Provision

    In the government’s most recent update about critical worker provision in school, found here, the following sentence has been added, ‘Children with at least one parent or carer who is a critical worker can go to school or college if required, but parents and carers should keep their children at home if they can.’

    I am I no doubt that parents are taking this matter seriously and trying to support us in keeping numbers low in school – this is hugely appreciated. However, in the light of the latest guidance and the data we have all seen over the weekend about Covid-19 cases across the country, please review any days you have booked in school next week and only send your child if he \ she cannot access their learning safely from home.

    If you do send your child to school next week, please be assured that we understand this is necessary and we are very happy to support you at this incredibly challenging time for our country. It is my hope that reported cases will fall over the next week or so and that we will no longer have to ask critical workers to be so cautious about sending their children to school.

    We can repurpose old laptops for free into usable devices to help our children!

    Some of the children at our school would benefit from us having some old laptops we could give them for home learning during lockdown as they haven’t one at home. We are having to loan them school ones but we don’t have enough!

     We are working with the charity Retech ( to repurpose old laptops into simple devices that will enable children to access Home Learning during lockdown. The charity will professionally wipe the laptop of all old files, software and operating systems so there are no data security worries. The laptop will then get new software installed on it and be given to a child who we know needs one for their home learning and future homework. The charity can re-purpose almost any laptop, don’t think yours will be too old!

    Ideally we would like the laptop to come with a power lead, but without is ok. Even if you just have old power leads, please donate them, they may help us.

    Please drop them off at our school if you can. Come to the office (in school hours) and someone will come and collect it from you. If you can’t get to school, but have one you want to donate, just email or call us. We will organise someone to collect it from you.

    Please forward the poster below to friends and family!

    Many thanks :-)

    We wish to try to build a picture of the levels of internet access pupils have available to them and also the devices they are using and sharing when undertaking home learning. This will help inform our plans for home learning and how we source and deploy available resources. 

    Please click this link and complete the survey - it may help KPNS obtain more devices, or get improved access to the Internet, for our children. This could really help many of our families at this time. 

    All information that is gathered will only be used for the purposes identified above and will be destroyed once it has been used for this purpose. As with any information we gather it may be shared with the Department for Education but this will be as per their published privacy notices and data collection procedures and rules.

    Dear Parents,

    I hope you and your families have had a peaceful and restful Christmas. On behalf or everyone at KPNS, I would like to wish you the very best for 2021 and beyond.

    As we prepare for the new term, you will doubtless be aware that that speculation is rife in the media about whether schools should open on Monday.

    As of this morning, we were preparing to open KPNS on Monday as planned. We have reviewed and updated our risk assessments in response to the latest guidance and staff were planning for your children to be in school.

    However, information received this afternoon casts doubt on our plans. We are seeking urgent clarification about whether we are able to open as planned, or if we will be partially or fully closed.

    As soon as we know to what extent we will be open, I will update parents immediately. Hopefully, this will be no later than tomorrow afternoon.

    Best wishes,

    Peter Cresswell
