How to guides
The following guides are designed to help support pupils to use their devices more effectively. Pupil are taught how to use their devices in school and these ‘How to’ documents are useful refreshers at home.
Contingency Planning for School Closure
King Solomon Academy will continue to deliver high-quality education during periods of remote learning due to closure or groups of children isolating at home. Our priority is to ensure pupils have the best learning opportunities even if they are not in school.
You can read our contigency planning for Covid-19 related remote learning below:
Staying Mentally Healthy During School Closure
We want to make sure all our families are as safe and healthy as possible during school closure. Parents and pupils alike can contact the school using email@example.com or call 0207 563 6900 for general enquiries or call or email your teacher or Head of Year/Year Lead. Safeguarding concerns should be addressed to Ms. Deeks on firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms. Colmans on i.colmans@Kingsolomonacademy.org. Please see the pdf below for other sources of support for parents and pupils during this strange time.
Secondary and Sixth Form Home Learning Curriculum
Teachers across KSA secondary began welcoming pupils back from Monday 8th March and are enjoying the return to in person teaching.
While cases remain prevalent, we know that we will continue to have students self-isolating, both for short periods (e.g. following contact with a positive case) and for longer periods (e.g. as they are shielding). We have been so impressed with the resilience of our student community and their commitment to keep learning throughout the most recent lockdown and know that those who do need to learn from home will continue to engage fully in their learning.
All subject teachers will be uploading work to student share everyday to ensure all students can keep learning, even while working from home. Students will be directed to these resources by their Head of Year and should submit their completed work each day to their subject teacher.

Primary Home Learning Curriculum
During school closure, all pupils from Nursery to Year 6 are posted home learning packs every two weeks. There are daily tasks for every pupil covering all curriculum subjects. Families and friends can access these packs in PDF format on this page during lockdowns or periods of isolation.
To support families and children learning from home, the primary team uploaded daily videos on our YouTube channgel. We also posted weekly recommended educational websites by subjects on our KSA Padlets section. You can still find a wonderful range of sources to capture the interest of any learner here.
