Dovedale Centre Closure – End of Term Arrangements

Click here for the latest updates regarding the Dovedale centre closure

Dear Parents/Carers

Further to my last update instructing pupils and staff to complete a 10-day period of isolation until midnight on Friday 16th July, we have made the decision to keep the Centre closed for the remaining 2 and half days of term, and continue with providing education to all remotely.  

We have taken this decision with the view to safeguard all staff and pupils against a consecutive period of enforced isolation if we were to receive another positive COVID result. Whilst we appreciate the potential disruption this might cause for some families; we have considered the increased number of positive cases within Birmingham and feel on balance this is an appropriate action to mitigate the risks.  

Ms Parry will communicate with you all the plans for next week.  

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming back all pupils back in school on Monday 6th September 2021.
