Literacy Week and World Book Day 2021

Thursday 4th March 2021 is World Book Day

World Book Day is a day set aside every year to celebrate reading, books, authors and illustrators. It is marked in more than 100 countries around the world and will be celebrated for the 24th time in 2021. World Book Day will be a part of a whole week focusing on Literacy (1st March 2021 - 5th March 2021). Even though most children will be at home this year, there will be a variety of fun activities related to books, reading and writing that they can take part in.

Half Term Free School Meal Vouchers

In order to continue to support eligible parents and pupils with access to free school meals (FSM) during the February half term, Birmingham City Council have provided a one-off supermarket eVoucher for each eligible pupil in Reception to Year 6. Birmingham City Council have provided these voucher codes which can be redeemed online for a range of supermarkets.

Further Information

Alternative FSM Provision

During this current period of school closure, we are now pleased to be able to offer eligible parents and pupils access to free school meals by supplying supermarket eGift cards, that can be spent locally to you. The DfE have funded these eGift cards as part of a national scheme. You will be able to choose which supermarket you would like an eGift card for including Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and more.

Devices To Support Remote Learning

Dear Parents

Understandably, we have had a lot of enquiries from parents about laptops and devices from the Department for Education (DfE) for families who need them. We are doing everything we can to support families who need a device or need to be connected to the internet.  At this moment in time, we have been allocated just over 80 devices across our 5 schools (which currently serve just over 3000 pupils).

School Closure Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Following the Prime Ministers announcement on Monday 4th January 2021 confirming School closures until February half term 2021, school will now be closed to all pupils except for pupils of critical workers and vulnerable pupils.
