AGFS will be closed from Monday 23rd March until further notice.

 

All parents, please complete this survey to give us feedback on distance learning during school closure.

 

All school closure information for parents has been cetralised in this link: School Closure Information Pack for Parents
 

The Government advice for schools emphasises that parents should keep children at home wherever possible and that the fewer children in education settings, the lower the risk of the virus spreading. Where a child cannot be kept safe at home and there is no alternative, children of key workers and those classified as vulnerable should contact: dmacpherson@arkgreenwich.org.

Social media

In these challenging times, it is worth highlighting the numerous positive community-focused activities and initiatives that will be going on across all of our schools. So, to help keep the spirits up, please do share information on your social media channels about what you are doing to help and support your communities and also any fun and creative ideas you have. Please use the hashtag #HomeLearning for what students are learning at home whilst school is closed and be sure to tag on Twitter. We will encourage others to re-share your content and will do so on our social media platforms.-AGFS
