2020 - 2021
Our plans for trips and the extended learning offer have been hugely affected by the COVID 19 epidemic. We are following government guidelines and doing our best to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus amongst our school community. As a result, we do not plan to run any of our wonderful whole year group residential trips this academic year; these have currently been banned by the government until further notice and even if they were to be allowed at some stage next year, it is likely we would not have adequate planning time to make them happen.
Plans for whole year group day trips, workshops and visits are also on hold at this stage whilst we adjust to our new way of operating. As such we are not asking parents for any financial contribution towards the extended learning provision for the time being.
We have re-worked our plans for enrichment and activity during the school day to ensure that pupils still have appropriate opportunities to experience extra-curricular learning in a variety of different areas within their class bubble. At this stage we are unable to run our afterschool clubs program due to the challenges posed by new logistics of our end of day timetable and maintaining class bubble integrity. We are prioritising our resources to be used where after school learning is vital to pupil progress and attainment, for example in the case of music GCSE instrumental tuition.
We will continually review these plans in line with the latest advice and changing circumstances. You can see information about our regular provision here (SRI to insert link to 2019/20 trips). We hope to return to this provision as soon as possible as we know that trips and extended learning is a big part of the unique experience pupils and staff alike get to enjoy at KSA.
2019 - 2020
All extended learning activities, visits and residential trips have been planned for the year ahead 2019-20. Here you will find brief information about these activities and a reminder about contribution totals for pupils in each year group.
