As of Monday 30th March there will be no secondary provision offered within WHMAT. If you wish to send a secondary-aged child to school, please contact your child’s academy. However, if you require primary provision, this is being provided at our Brownmead and Topcliffe sites for those families identified by the Government as entitled to send their children to school. If you intend to send a primary-aged child to either Brownmead or Topcliffe, please inform your child’s academy.
The academies within Washwood Heath Multi-Academy Trust are awaiting guidance from the Department for Education and/or Birmingham City Council regarding the distribution of vouchers for families of students who are entitled to free school meals. Until then a sandwiches meal will be available. This offer is to collect meals from your child’s academy between midday and 12.30pm. Please notify your child’s academy if you wish to take up the free school meal offer as it stands.
Please note that all sites will be closed for the Easter holiday from Saturday 4th April, reopening as described above on Monday 20th April.
Please follow government advice in terms of isolating any household where symptoms of a new persistent cough, or high temperature are present in any member of the household.
