Coronavirus Management: School Closure
Matthew Arnold School, like all schools across the Country, is now closed to all students except those who have already confirmed that they will be attending. Those who may attend are the children of key workers, children with EHCP, children accessing free school meals or children with an assigned social worker. Please contact the school if you have not already told us that you would like your child to be able to access this emergency provision.
We ask that all parents of these groups follow the first principle of keeping their children at home if it is at all possible and to only send them to school if there is no safe alternative. If anyone in the family is showing symptoms, then students should not be sent to school and the whole family must self-isolate.
We should all be reducing social contact and travel, wherever possible, and by closing the school we are making a significant contribution to that effort.
Learning from home
Success for everyone
We expect the very best from everyone and for everyone in our school. Our aim is to cultivate our capacity for success and to achieve this we offer high-quality teaching and an engaging curriculum enabling students to progress as learners as well as developing emotionally and socially.
Matthew Arnold School provides a safe, respectful and supportive environment in which all students can flourish and develop the confidence to embrace challenge. Students leave our school with the ambition and skills to be able to adapt to their future adult life.
