Dear parent carer

Monday 9 December – Full closure for KS3 only

I am writing to advise you that we have reluctantly decided to close KS3 all day on Monday 9 December.  This applies to years 7-9 only.  The Academy will remain open for KS4 and KS5.

 

We continue to have major issues with staffing, with nearly one third of teachers off sick today.  I am already aware that I have a high number of staff certified as sick for Monday, meaning that we will be unable to cover classes effectively. 

 

However, by having years 10-13 in school we can continue to provide these exam groups with a quality experience.

 

I expect all students to return to the Academy on Tuesday 10 December.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Kind regards

 

Alison Downey

Principal

 

 

What to know when choosing a secondary school: Coffee Morning Friday 15th September

Are you a parent or carer in the Wimbledon area currently choosing a secondary school for your child?

League tables, progress measures, open mornings... We know this process can be daunting, and sometimes it's hard to wade through the jargon and get to the facts.

In order to help guide you through this decision, one of our current parents is hosting a coffee morning this Friday (15th Sept) at 9:15 at Wimbledon Racquets and Fitness Club on Cranbrook Road (SW19).

She will tell you the facts you need to know, such as what to look for on an open evening, and the best questions to ask. Our Principal, Alison Downey, will also be on hand to unpick the new Progress 8 measure and answer and questions you might have.

No Need to RSVP but if you have any further questions please email s.rowe@arkputneyacademy.org

We look forward to seeing you there!
