As of 8th March 2021, it is vital for all children to return to school to minimise as far as possible the longer-term impact of the pandemic on their education, wellbeing and wider development. We know that children have missed being with their friends and the wider social aspects of school.
Missing out on more time in the classroom risks children falling further behind. Those with higher overall absence tend to achieve less well in both primary and secondary school.
School attendance is therefore compulsory again from 8th March 2021.
This means from 8th March 2021 (unless parents are formally notified of a local lockdown where schools are closed), the usual rules on school attendance apply.
If you have any concerns about your child's attendance, please contact school (0121 464 2881 ) to discuss these with Mr Hyde or another member of the Senior Leadership Team. Thank you.
