The Malling School Update: Thursday 16th April 2020

The Malling School Update: Thursday 16th April 2020

We hope that you have all had a lovely Easter break and that you and your family are safe and well.  I wanted to bring the following points to your attention:

  1. Term 5 Home Learning has officially started and our usual start of Term Assembly is now available to view on our website.  This can be found on our school’s website homepage by following Home Learning > Assemblies > Term 5 Assembly 16th April 2020
  2. Term 5 Home Learning should be starting today.  The timetable that students need to follow is available to view on our Home Learning page for each year group.  Our staff have put a lot of time and effort into creating these resources for our students so that they can continue to learn whilst studying at home
  3. The first half an hour of every day is dedicated to our students’ Personal Development.  There will be different activities for our students to complete in this period of time.  Some will take the full 30 minutes, others will be shorter.  The Personal Development resources can be found on our school’s website homepage by following:

Home Learning > The Malling School Way > Personal Development (Monday); Assembly (Tuesday); PSHE (Wednesday); Music Appreciation (Thursday) and Mindfulness (Friday)

  1. Heads of Houses will be conducting live daily briefings for all the students in their houses and will be delivering a live assembly every Tuesday.  Students will need to check their emails and follow the Zoom link so they can join these meetings and listen to their Head of House every day.  These briefings will take place at 8.45am and 8.55am depending on which tutor group a student is in

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents and carers for their continued support.

John Vennart, Headteacher

The Malling School Update: Thursday 16th April 2020

The Malling School will be closed for Term 5 except for the emergency child care provision of key workers and vulnerable groups where it is not safe for children to be at home. Term 5 Home Learning arrangements are detailed on our website. It is essential that we all follow government advice and only send children into school if there is absolutely no safe alternative and because your job is critical to the National COVID-19 response. Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. Please contact Mrs Ruth Gately : ruth.gately@themallingschool.kent.sch.uk if you require support during this time.
