Decem­ber 2021 Let­ter to Parents

10th Decem­ber 2021

Dear Par­ents and Carers

We have so enjoyed hav­ing the stu­dents back to some ‘nor­mal­ity’ this year and it has been won­der­ful to be able to resume some extra cur­ric­u­lar clubs and activ­i­ties and to hold some well over­due face to face events and cel­e­bra­tions such as Pre­sen­ta­tion After­noon and KES Live, albeit with care­ful and detailed plan­ning to reduce risks with Covid. Con­grat­u­la­tions to our U16 Foot­ball Team who have reached the Kent Cup semi finals which is a huge achieve­ment — we wish them lots of luck in their big game on Sat­ur­day against Har­vey Gram­mar School. Do come along to KES (kick off 10am) and sup­port them if you are able!

Thank you for your on-​going sup­port. We have made some good head­way in recov­er­ing from lost learn­ing time and the dis­rup­tions due to lock­downs. Re-​establishing good learn­ing habits has been the most impor­tant fac­tor in this. Please con­tinue to work with us to:

  • Ensure your child is attend­ing school well
  • Ensure your child comes in to school in full uni­form but also with a warm coat to wear over their uni­form and blazer in the cold
  • Remind­ing your child to come well equipped to school (pens, pen­cils, maths set, read­ing book, mask etc.)
  • Ask­ing your child about home­work set and sup­port­ing them in com­plet­ing any inde­pen­dent work

The new vari­ant of the virus, Omi­cron, has meant that we are back to wear­ing masks in com­mu­nal areas around the school. Stu­dents have responded sen­si­bly to this (although a few need remind­ing and nag­ging!) and we expect this to con­tinue for now. We are con­cerned that there are still a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of stu­dents who are not reg­is­ter­ing their LFD results or not rou­tinely testing.

Please con­tinue to ensure your child does twice weekly LFD tests and reg­is­ters the result on the app: https://​testreg​is​ter​.co​.uk/​l​o​g​i​n. Please con­tact us if you have run out of tests and need more.

Japan­ese IB Stu­dent Work

Our Japan­ese IB Stu­dents have been research­ing the art of cal­lig­ra­phy and its links to Japan­ese writ­ing. Pupils have been exper­i­ment­ing using black ink and paint brushes to pro­duce some fan­tas­tic images for their IB Lan­guage Portfolios.
They have also been mak­ing Zen Gar­dens, link­ing up sev­eral of the IB Learner Pro­file Attrib­utes. The over­all aim is to develop the idea of being inter­na­tion­ally minded, hav­ing a shared guardian­ship of the planet, and to cre­ate a bet­ter and more peace­ful world.
