With the Prime Minister announcing a new National Lockdown from this Thursday, we encourage all families to check the internet and media for information on what activities are allowed and those that are not. The lockdown will go for 4 weeks until 2 December 2020.
SCHOOLS and COLLEGES ARE TO STAY OPEN AS USUAL. Therefore your child can attend school as normal*. However, for those of you whose children are considered to be extremely clinically vulnerable, you should seek advice from their GP or Consultant. This lockdown does NOT require people who were previously shielding to remain at home. However, they are advised to take additional precautions.
Remember: HANDS - FACE - SPACE!
*We are still awaiting installation of the Pods for conducting AGPs (Aerosol Generating Procedures) such as regular suctioning. We will advise the 12 families involved when they are in place, enabling your children to return to school.
In particular, we do remind all parents and carers to maintain a social distance of 2 metres from each other and from pupils and staff when you arrive at school to bring or collect your child from school. Also, please wear a face covering when entering the building.
The Government has not continued the Free School Meals voucher system since the Summer holidays. However, Birmingham City Council has announced that it will do so, retrospectively, for the October half term break. We have not yet received any details from BCC but will pass on all information as it comes to hand.
