Dear Parents / Carers
Thank you for your patience and support during this half term, it has certainly gone very quickly.
School for children closes today and will re-open at the usual time on Monday 3rd June.
Eid Parties will take place on Friday 7th June.
Children are able to wear their own clothes but please ensure they will be able to do all their usual school activities.
Children will be allowed to bring in some sweets and crisps as a party snack. Food must not be shared in case of allergies. We are a Nut Free School - NO NUTS must be brought in or any products which contain nuts e.g. tins of chocolates that contain nuts.
Polling Day – Thursday 23rd May
If you are coming to vote on school premises tomorrow please take care as the school will not be held responsible for any accidents on site.
There will be limited parking spaces in the car park so please walk or park on the road if you can.
The polling stations will be in the community hall which is just outside the main entrance, there will be signs to guide you.
You will be receiving a letter today from our CEO, Pat Smart. There is an application form attached to the letter that you need to complete and return if you require childcare on Friday afternoons. Thank you for your engagement in this consultation. There are very little changes to our school day because of the changes made earlier on in the academic year. I will be responding to individual concerns raised.
There are eight Grammar Schools in Birmingham. Children only need to sit one entrance test to be considered for one or more of the Grammar Schools in Birmingham. The entrance test for September 2020 entry will be held on Saturday 7th September 2019 and parents of Year 5 children considering Grammar School education for their child will need to register them for the test by 4pm on Friday 28th June 2019.
Parents can find more information on the schools admission policies and can register their child for the test by visiting www.birminghamgrammarschools.org
Lastly, now that the weather is brighter and sunnier we’ve noticed lots of our younger pre-school siblings playing on our equipment at the beginning and end of the school day. May I remind parents, that while we are happy for this, it is the parent’s responsibility and not the schools to ensure their child is playing safely.
We would like to wish you all a very happy and safe half term and we will see you on Monday 3rd June.
Miss C. Lucas
