School Opening 29/11/2021

Please be aware that school is open to all staff and pupils on Monday 29th November 2021. 

Key members of staff will be on site early in the morning to ensure that the site is safe for pupils to enter. For Monday 29th of November only, all pupils will need to come in to school via the Harts Road entrance. I appreciate that this may cause some inconvenience but in order for us to have the time to clear a safe route into the building, we can only work on one entrance to the school site in readiness for pupils arriving. 

Please take extra care when travelling to and from school and when walking around the school site. 

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Proposed Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24

Dear Parents,

We are writing to inform you that we are proposing a reduction in the published admission number (PAN) for our school. We have been working with Birmingham City Council to plan for the future, specifically looking at the falling pupil numbers across the city due to a fall in birth rates.

It is proposed that the published admission number relating to the admission of children into Reception from September 2023 onwards be reduced to 90. The present published admission number is set at 120.

A copy of our proposed admission arrangements for 2023/2024 are available on our school website and by visiting:

To express your views as part of this consultation, please visit the Birmingham BeHeard website:

Any comments received will be considered by the Trust Board during the Spring Term of 2022. The Trust Board will give full consideration to your comments before making its final decision on this proposal.

Reopening School - Information for Parents & Pupils

Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, I hope that you are all safe and well. I want to begin by saying that I know there will be a wide variation in thoughts and feelings about school reopening. We find ourselves in a continually evolving situation. We have been navigating this situation together for almost a year now and our approach as a school remains the same: we are here to support our families in any way we possibly can.
