Update from Jon Whitcombe, Trust Principal -

Secondary Statement

As you will be aware, the DfE has stated that Year 10 and Year 12 students will receive some “face to face” contact with their teachers during Term 6. Currently, we are awaiting guidance from the DfE as to what this means in practice. 

Once the guidance is published we will develop our plans and make the necessary arrangements. On June 1st we will write to you explaining what “face to face” means in practice and we will be in a position to confirm when this will commence. 

Please note that the current arrangements for online teaching for Years 10 and 12 will continue until further notice.

Online Safety Information

It is becoming increasingly important to keep up to date with online safety information.  Here at The Whitstable School we want to ensure that pupils understand how to be safe when they are surfing the internet and using social media.

It is vital that pupils understand the dangers that they could face when they are online and how to protect themselves from them. Our aim is to provide our pupils and parents with the tools needed to be able to recognise the potential dangers online. 

If you would like to discuss the content of the online safety section of our website, then please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Miss Murphy, at or by calling main reception.

Please see our Online Safety Policy here.
