Dear Parent,

I hope you and your family are well. I’m getting in touch to invite you to take part in our short survey to share your experiences during lockdown and tell us your views on the support you have received from different education services.

Please complete one survey for each child or young person with SEND. The survey is anonymous, however you can choose to include your contact details at the end if you would like to be more involved in shaping future SEND services.

Thank you for taking part. We really value your feedback in helping us to monitor and continually improve our services for SEND families.

Message from Mrs Thewlis

Dear parents and children,

As you know, our school has now reopened for some children and we have been working very hard to ensure that this goes as smoothly as possible for all those who have joined us or are going to join us shortly. We know that for lots of reasons, many of you are not returning to us just yet. To continue to support pupils who are at home, we are going to be updating our home learning section of the website, adding new information and content that we feel is useful. We will continue to add, review and adapt to this over the coming weeks so please check this area regularly. To those pupils who are shortly returning to school, we can’t wait to see you, and to all our families, stay safe and take care.

Zoe Thewlis

Year group home learning email addresses

We have set up some new email addresses for your children to use if they are continuing to learn at home. When the children have finished their home learning, you can send pictures or copies of their fantastic work to the mailboxes below so that the teachers can see the learning you have been doing as a family. We look forward to seeing their hard work.

The Birchfield Team.

Alternative FSM provision w/c 22nd June

We are pleased to be able to continue to offer eligible parents and pupils access to free school meals by supplying supermarket eGift cards, that can be spent locally to you.

During the week commencing 22nd June, eligible pupils who are remaining at home will be issued with a £60 eCode, the equivalent of £15 per week, £3 per meal, for 4 weeks.

Your £60 eGift card can be used in multiple transactions and on multiple visits, until you have spent the full value of the eGift card. eCodes can be redeemed online for an eGift card for the supermarket of your choice by visiting freeschoolmeals.co.uk.

If you have successfully redeemed an eCode, but have queries about your eGift Card (for example, you haven’t received it within 24 hours of ordering it at freeschoolmeals.co.uk) then please contact Edenred by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you for your continued support.
