Remembrance Day 2020 – please donate

Remembrance events will be very different this year. Please see the letter for details.

In particular, we will not be selling poppies in school this year, but would like to encourage all members of the school community and their families to donate to the Poppy Appeal and the wearing of a poppy is encouraged as a show of support to the Armed Forces community. A Just Giving page has been set up specifically for this purpose which allows Gift Aid to increase gifts further where possible.

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal & Remembrance Day

As Headteacher, I regard it as a privilege to be able to represent our school community at the annual parade in Aldridge. I believe that it is important that we take time to remember, with thanks, the service and sacrifice of those who have suffered in conflicts around the globe.

This is mostly due to the requirement on some staff to self-isolate and should not, therefore, extend beyond the half term break (including a number of our staff have been identified as close contacts of people who have tested positive for COVID-19 outside of our school community).
