Dear Parents and Carers,


As you are aware, school is now closed with effect from Friday 23rd March until further notice. This is due to the government following scientific advice to further limit the spread of COVID-19.


Our school will remain closed to all children except those identified as being vulnerable or children of key workers.

The fewer children who make the journey to school and the fewer children there are in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect the vulnerable members of society.

I will therefore not be allowing any parent who can care for their child at home to take up a place so unless you receive a letter confirming your child’s place, please do not send them or bring them to school until further notice.

I apologise if this sounds harsh but this is government directive in very trying times.

The children have been wonderful throughout all of this and are a credit to you all. We will still be in touch as per our other letters

A reminder to check the school website and school APP regularly for emergency updates and to inform us of any change in your contact details- enquiry@forestdale.bham.sch.uk

Thank you for all your kind wishes and thoughts to the school staff and we wish the same for you.

We wish you and your families all the best and please stay in touch.

Stay safe,

R James

Head teacher
