CORONAVIRUS

           1.4.20: FREE SCHOOL MEALS - Birmingham Local Authority voucher codes are being put in the post TODAY (1.4.20) along with a parents' guide and should be with you shortly. When you log on to the website, you enter the cheque number and validation code as shown on your letter from school. There is a helpline number on the log in screen. These vouchers are for the next 2 weeks and the new national voucher scheme will be in place by then.

If you haven't already given the school your email address, and you think your child is eligible for FSMs, it is important that you ensure you do ASAP to allow us to send future vouchers directly by email - please email enquiry@bellfield-jun.bham.sch.uk with your email address, name of child(ren) in your family eligible and the classes they are in.

As per the latest advice from the Government

Dear Parents/Carers: Jay Taylor who works here at Bellfield Junior School as an external music teacher of guitar, will be offering Skype lessons while the school is closed to pupils. If this is something that you would be interested in for your child/children, then please contact Jay on : 07554350561

If you, or someone in your house, shows any signs of the virus (high temperature and/ or dry, persistent cough), then that person, and all the household members, must self-isolate for 14 days - the person with the symptoms should, were possible, stay away from the other household members for 7 days.

Do NOT call 111 unless there are serious concerns - ie the person ill has underlying health issues or the symptoms get worse.

In the meantime: Please ensure you have instructed your children how to wash their hands correctly as we have been doing in school - the school does still have a good supply of soap & hand sanitiser.

Most people will have mild symptons and will recover normally.

The school was asked to write an article for the 2019 'Parliamentary Review' - click HERE to read our article

We want to say, a huge THANK YOU to all the donors who have sent in cheques or 'presents' to our school after hearing us on Radio 4/ reading the article on BBConline. It was not why we did the report, but it was lovely that so many people wanted to help us - it's been amazing!

A 'thunk' is a question to make you think & debate - we have a weekly one in school for everyone to think about. Our ‘THUNK’ of the WEEK!
