Important! COVID-19 message for parents

There has been a rapid rise in COVID 19 cases across Sandwell. The virus has NOT gone away. Please stick to social distancing and self isolation guidance.

If you have to go out, maintain a distance of 2 metres from other people, wear a face covering, use hand sanitiser or wash your hands with soap and water regularly and as soon as you get home.

If you experience symptoms, you must self isolate at home and get tested. Anyone in the household must also self isolate. Doing this saves lives.

Important notice: COVID-19
Following the latest guidance, if it is possible to look after your child at home then the advice is that they should stay at home. Children should not be in schools unless there is a need, even if they have an EHCP. They are safest at home with their parents and family in this current situation. Children should only be coming to school if they have been identified as vulnerable or have parents who have been identified as key workers.

We need your support to help our key workers take on the challenge ahead.

School will continue to be open to identified children of key workers and those identified as vulnerable.

Timetables and class groups will be revised daily. Provision will be reviewed daily to reflect pupil and staffing levels.

This is a really difficult time for all of us and we want to keep everyone safe and well.

We appreciate your help and support.
