End of term arrangements - update

We have been informed by Sandwell LEA that our school will not be open to children during the summer holiday – further guidance has been promised by the DfE on proposed alternative provision for some children – this will be shared as soon as we have it. This is due to be released to school during today. 


We are pleased to announce that all eligible families will continue to receive FSM vouchers during the summer break – we will continue to use the Edenred scheme and a final confirmation of amounts and the frequency of payments will be shared with you in the near future.


School will close for the summer on Friday 17th July at 12:00 noon as school will be closed to all children in the afternoon session. All children should be collected from classroom doors in Foundation Stage/KS1 and the playground in the KS2, in the usual manner.


School opens to all children – under current DfE guidance – on Thursday 3rd September. Full details on the Autumn return to school will be shared with all families as soon as possible via the website and school app before the end of term.


Our annual School reports will be emailed to families as PDF’s this year. These will be slightly shorter due to the Covid-19 Lockdown but as they are statutory, staff will still feedback on your children’s learning journey and personal development. Our IT team are currently resolving a few technical issues with this task but all families will receive reports before the end of the term.


Transition booklets have been prepared for new Nursery, Reception, Year One and Year Three children and their families. Unfortunately, these will have to replace the usual transition meetings held at the end of term. Any additional questions will be answered following their release to you.


As you will see, we have lots of important information still being worked on and being put together to replace what we would normally do at this time of the year. We understand that many of you will have questions or be waiting for this guidance - we should be able to solve many of these with the release of the documents mentioned above.


Following the publication of these, staff will do all they can to answer any other queries as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding!
