Sources of help and support
You may find these websites helpful if you would like some additional support or guidance.
Parent Toolkit - a website with links to support parents.
From Birmingham with Love - links to council and partner sites.
You may find the links and information below helpful when keeping your children safe while they are using tablets, phones or computers at home.
There is no requirement to have uniform with school logo's on. Local supermarkets sell burgundy jumpers, yellow and white polo shirts and grey trousers and skirts. If you have any questions please do come and ask us.
The Uniform supplier have launched their Reform boxes where uniform can be recycled in our stores, with the added bonus of 10% off a parent’s next purchase. This uniform will be professionally cleaned, recycled and reformed, and eventually land back in stores for purchase at a fraction of the original cost.
They have also replaced a number their plain lines with a cheaper alternative line, but keeping true to their ethos of using good quality material, and trusted suppliers within the Schoolwear Alliance.
They are now accepting Clearpay in our stores, so parents are able to split their payments into four automatic fortnightly withdrawals, to make the summer uniform purchase that little bit lighter. Find out more details here.
They continue to offer 5% off to NHS workers with a Blue Light Card, and Klarna is still available as a split-payment option online.
Holidays & Absence
Family holidays in term time are not allowed in law and are unlikely to be authorised. Family emergencies also need careful consideration. It is not always appropriate or in the best interests of the child to miss school for emergencies which are being dealt with by adult family members. Notifying the school of leave due to a family emergency does not mean it will be authorised. Any requests for absence must be made in writing and addressed to the Headteacher.
Mrs. M Lynch, Executive Headteacher
Miss J Lowe, Office Manager - for enquiries from parents and the public
Ms S Yaman, Administrative Assistant - for enquiries from parents and the public
