Remote Learning Plan
In line with DFE guidance, school has put into place a ‘Remote Learning Plan’ to ensure your child’s education can continue at home in the event of a bubble/school closure. Each day, your child’s teacher will deliver two live lessons through google classroom. Your child has been sent home with a personal log in and instructions about how to gain access to the learning platform. They will need access to a device and the Internet. In addition to this, they will be set an independent activity for your child to complete.
Please check the class pages on the school website for learning updates; here we will post a timetable to show you what time live lessons will be delivered each day.
Our School Remote learning platforms are:
- Google Classrooms * click the blue link to go straight to the login screen
- Class Charts * click the blue link to go straight to the login screen
It is very important that you ensure you and your child can access these. Please check the 'class pages' for more information.
To ensure we keep everyone safe all parties need to agree to some rules, when delivering and receiving live lessons via google classroom and google meet. If your child enters a live lesson we will presume they are agreeing to the terms set out in the documents below and the same for the teachers.

Secondary School Admissions Information for Year 6
This information is taken directly from the Walsall Council website:

Walsall participates in an Inter-Local Authority (LA) Co-ordinated Admission Scheme.

The Walsall on-line application portal allows you to apply for a place at any secondary school in or outside the borough, with some exceptions.
The Information for Parents Booklet below tell you how to apply for a place for your child at secondary school. It also explains what happens if a Walsall school has more applications than there are places available. The admission criteria for every Walsall school are detailed in the school information pages within this booklet. If you intend to name a school outside Walsall, it is important that you obtain a copy of the maintaining local authority’s ‘Information for Parents’ booklet/leaflet, or visit the local authority’s website, which will detail the admission criteria for the school you would like your child/ren to attend. Please take the opportunity to find out as much as you can about the relevant schools before you express your preferences – The Admissions and Appeals Team is here to help you.
