Our academy is now closed to all students and we will reopen from 9am on Wednesday June 3rd .

Please check ClassDojo and the website regularly this week as we'll be updating plans and information during the week.

Parent Information: 02/06/2020

We are now able to give you further details regarding the returning to school for Nursery, Reception, Year One, Year 6, children of key workers and other key children.

School will reopen from Wednesday 3rd June for the above year groups. For parents of children in identified year groups that responded to the survey indicating that they wish for their child to attend school, we have created a register and are ready for them to return to school next week. We have grouped the children and they have been added to the register ready for Wednesday 3rd June. Any parents who have not indicated that their child/children will be attending school, will be required to inform school (giving at least 24 hours notice) so that we can make the appropriate adjustments and arrangements of groupings. If your child/children are not registered to attend, you will be turned away until we’ve had sufficient notice.

You will have seen in our ‘Return to School - Parent Handbook’ and ‘Return to School - Parent Video’ the staggered start and finish times for different year groups.

It is vital that these times are adhered to for health and safety reasons and to ensure social distancing rules. We also posted information out to families during the half term break indicating important information and individual timetables for those returning. I would also ask for you to ensure that your child/children arrive to school on time every day.

If you have any further questions, worries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via phone, email or ClassDojo.


Reporting a pupil absence

Pupils that have indicated they are attending are expected to come to school every day. The only exception should be if they are sick, or if they, or a family member is displaying symptoms of Covid-19.

If your child needs to stay at home, then please either call school to inform us by 9.05am. This should be done by phoning the school office on 0121 675 3985 on the first day and then every day after that or report the absence via the form on the website

If we do not hear from you, then this becomes a safeguarding concern and senior leaders will visit your home.

Lea Forest plans to reopen on 3rd June 2020 for selected year groups.

We have added our Safe Return plan to the site copies are available below and from the office on request.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us

We have reproduced our parent handbook and key information in several of our home languages to help parents and carers understand our new rules and ways of working.

Can I change my mind and send my child?

Yes, if your child is Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 6 in order for us to operate safely we ask that you give us 24 hours hours notice before sending your child to school if you have previously said they would stay at home. This will allow us to ensure we have safe levels of staffing and safe numbers of children in each group. Please call the school office on

0121 675 3985.
