Welcome to St. Teresa's Catholic Primary School's website.
Easter Holiday provision
The official end of the Spring Term for St. Teresa's School is Thursday 9th April and the school was due to be closed until Monday 20th April, with only children of key workers and children classed as vulnerable including those with an Education Health Care Plan being in school, if unavoidable, from that date.
There may be key workers or parents of children deemed vulnerable who require childcare provision over the Easter break. If this is the case, there is an arrangement in place for Tuesday 14th, Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th April for those St. Teresa's children to be taken and collected by parents/carers to/from St. Clare's School, Robert Road, B20 3RT. This provision would be co-ordinated by St. Teresa's School for our children so we would need to be informed so provisions can be put in place if your child is to go to St. Clare's School.
Over the Easter break if there is a need for childcare for children whose parents are key workers or the child is deemed vulnerable please call the St. Teresa's School on (0121) 554 9581 or preferably email firstname.lastname@example.org for arrangements to be made.
It is anticipated that St. Teresa's School will be available for children of key workers and children classed as vulnerable including those with an Education Health Care Plan on Friday 17th April. Please check this website as at this time that date is to be confirmed.
For those children currently attending school there is no requirement from parents/carers of those children for the school to be open or alternative provision on Good Friday, 10th April or Easter Monday, 13th April. If there is a requirement for child care on those dates please contact school (as noted above) and we will look to establish some arrangement for child care.
