Term/Holiday Dates for the 2021-22 Academic Year and Arrangements for the start of the Autumn Term in September 2021

The school continues to monitor the latest guidance from the Department for Education in regards to arrangements for the reopening of schools at the start of the Autumn term 2021.  Our arrangements for reopening, including arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing and a staggered return by year group, can be located below.  A copy of the latest correspondence outlining the arrangements for reopening can be accessed here.

Start of Autumn Term 2021

Please note that term commences for staff only on Tuesday 31st August 2021 and that this day, as well as Wednesday 1st September, has been allocated an INSET Day. On these days, the school will be closed to students (except for those required to attend for an onsite COVID-19 test - please see below).

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, parents are reminded that work Experience for students in Years 11 & 13 will not be taking place at the start of the Autumn term as previously planned.  Virtual work experience opportunities have instead been offered to students along with academic catch-up activities.  Please refer to our correspondence issued separately.  Queries regarding work experience can be seen to workexperience@kingsdale.southwark.sch.uk 

The Autumn term commences for students on Thursday 2nd September 2021, with year groups returning on a rolling basis, commencing with a half-day session to enable us to administer an on-site COVID-19 test, in line with government expectations (parental consent required).  Further details on the draft programme are outlined below.  All queries relating to COVID-19 tests should be directed to covidnotification@kingsdale.southwark.sch.uk
