Please click here for our most recent letter to parents and carers dated 25th March 2020.
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 is 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 meet the criteria and who want their children to attend the Community Classroom must let us know, giving details, otherwise we cannot guarantee places.
We will ask parents on a weekly basis to re-confirm 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. Learning resources for each year group have been posted on our website https://charteracademy.org.uk/home-learning-1 and you and your children can email our staff for support. Staff email addresses can be found https://charteracademy.org.uk/staff
We will update this page and keep in touch with parents and students via our website, texts and letters.
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 phone 02392824204 and leave a voicemail. Voicemails are being forwarded to the relevant member of staff. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS, SAVE LIVES
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.
Ark Charter Academy seeks former students
Did you go to Ark Charter Academy? If you’re a former student who would like to support current students, we would love to hear from you!
Right now, there are students in the assembly hall where you once sat, facing similar challenges and opportunities that you did. Being connected to you could really help them.
Ark Charter Academy Alumni Network: Why stay in touch?
Join a network of former Ark Charter Academy students and inspire others about what they can achieve.
- Stay connected: Updates on upcoming events and all the latest alumni news sent directly to your inbox.
- Helping others: Would you have benefitted from hearing from former students about life after school when you were here? Help a current student to learn from your experiences in education and the world of work!
- Give an insight into what you do: From the importance of skills development through to ‘how to stand out’, support current William Parker boys to get a step ahead and help them learn how they can make the most of opportunities now.
- Connect with others: Meet other former students and keep in touch with old friends. There are plenty of opportunities to attend school events and alumni socials.
More than 90,000 former students across Britain have already signed up to stay connected with their old school. They’re inspiring young people in a number of ways; as career and education role models, mentors or e-mentors, work experience providers, governors, donors or fundraisers.
It doesn’t matter when you left school, whether you’re in further education or employment, whether you still live nearby or have moved further away, there are still ways you can help!
