We're Fundraising For Our Playground!

We are looking to radically alter our playground provision to allow for a greater range of play types and more dynamic play. To that end, we are hoping to build a trim trail, a stage with speakers, a reading shed, a den building area and put in soft flooring. To complete this project we need £12,000!

We've been working hard to fundraise the project and we're hoping to gain funding from outside sources too.  If you know anywhere that offers match funding for these types of projects, please do let us know!

We will be keeping you updated of our playground progress on Twitter and in our termly newsletters, and we will be updating our fundraising thermometer when we receive donations too.

    Good morning, The Northamptonshire School Games 2020 are going virtual! Monday 4th May saw the launch of the Northamptonshire Virtual School Games. Schools and families can join in, trying different sports over the course of 9 weeks leading up to a countywide Virtual School Games Day on Thursday 9th July 2020. There will be 3 sporting challenges to try each week - no special equipment will be required and the challenges will be quick, inclusive and simple. Support will be provided through coaching tips so that you can improve your performance and achieve your personal best. We will also be setting themed puzzles, quizzes and problem solving activities so that you can challenge your mind, and launching a Skills Showcase to enable you to share your videos and photos of the challenges across each week. The Virtual School Games Day on Thursday 9th July, will be a celebration of sport and physical activity with a virtual opening ceremony followed by an 8 activity skills circuit. Families and schools will be able to get involved during the day and challenge the scores set by staff from the 5 School Sport Partnerships.

    Year Group Email Addresses
    Dear Families, I hope you are all well and keeping safe. As a school community we are missing the children and so have set up secure year group email addresses that the children can keep in touch with their teachers. We would love to receive messages, photos, and pictures from the children during this time. We can also answer any questions relating to the set work that children have. The email boxes as detailed below will be checked each afternoon by the teachers and responded to. Y3learning@ketteringparkjunior.northants.sch.uk Y4learning@ketteringparkjunior.northants.sch.uk Y5learning@ketteringparkjunior.northants.sch.uk Y6learning@ketteringparkjunior.northants.sch.uk Please ensure that your child uses the correct email address and writes their name and class number in the subject box. We look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Ann Walker

    Important Information - COVID-19
    Dear families, I apologise for the lateness of this communication but we have been alerted to a potentially confirmed case of Covid 19 (Corona Virus). The individual this relates to has not been present in school since Tuesday the 17th March 2020. At this point in time we are awaiting confirmation of the case from the NHS and advice from Public Health England, but we would advise all parents to be observant for the below symptoms and to follow the appropriate self isolating advice should symptoms develop: a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back and/or a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual) If you wish to seek further advice please contact NHS 111. I'm sure you will appreciate our priority is ensuring the safety of our students and staff at all times. Thank you for your understanding. Mrs Walker

    Key Worker Provision
    Dear KPJA families, if you have a place in the limited provision and no longer need it please can you let us know. The advice is wherever possible children should remain at home to reduce contact with others. We now have extremely limited staffing due to those in self isolation and ‘social distancing’ of those with vulnerabilities and are reviewing the need to reduce numbers in the provision further. We require evidence of your key worker status to be brought to the school in the morning if you are still taking a place. Thank you. Mrs Walker.
