Birmingham Local Authority - Schools Reopening

You will be aware that some Birmingham schools have started reopening to more pupils from this week. The council has been working with schools to agree measures so that more children can begin to go back to school to continue their learning in a safe and gradual way.

The most important principle for us is that the health, safety and welfare of children, staff and our communities is paramount.

Thank you for your continued support, Mrs Middleton

Year 6 Transition to Secondary School

Dear Parents

We recognise that settling into a new school is a big step for you and your child. Our aim is to make this a very happy and smooth transition. We want to encourage all our children to reflect on the positive memories and experiences they have had in their primary schools and to encourage this positive mind-set moving forwards to this new and exciting chapter in their life. We appreciate the challenges that families are facing and want to provide as much support as possible. With this in mind, the Pastoral Team at PACT have been looking at the best way of supporting all year 6 children in these unprecedented times, with the transition to secondary schools. 

03/06/20: School reopening update

Dear Parents and Carers,

I previously wrote to you on 22nd May with regard to the date a decision on opening schools to more pupils would be made. This morning, the trust board of the Prince Albert Community Trust met to make this decision. As I am sure you can appreciate, there are many things to consider when trying to decide what is best for our children, staff and parents in this situation. In all my years of leading schools, this is by far the most difficult situation my team and I have faced and making the right decisions for our school community has been exceptionally challenging.
