SCHOOL BULLETIN BOARD
Monday 1st June
We hope that you had a good bank holiday and enjoyed the wonderful weather. A letter has been sent out via parentmail to update parents on what is happening in relation to government plans for partial reopening of schools (see link).
This week Year 7 and 8 students should be working on Group C subjects (science, computing, RE, drama, food).
Please can students ensure that they are completing the work set by their teachers - if you are having problems accessing this work, please let your teacher know.
The Education Endowment Foundation (EFF) have produced a series of check-lists to help parents and children manage their routines. You may find these helpful:

There has been much speculation in the media around schools reopening. This is unhelpful in the current climate. Once the Government has made a decision, we will consider the implication fro Lordswood and update parents accordingly.
Year 11 and 13 students: Updated advice in relation to GCSE and A Level results can be found at the link below:
Year 11: Please look out for an email regarding the Prom.
If you have a concern about your child or if a student would normally seek the support of a counsellor were they in school, please contact the school emergency number: 07598 828122
Students are also able to contact Childline if they require help: 0800 11 11 or www.childline.org.uk
The waiting room https://the-waitingroom.org/ also provides useful links to a range of support services
If your child normally receives a free school meal, you should have received vouchers to enable you to purchase lunches; if you have not received your vouchers, please contact the school.
The following website also provides information on local foodbanks: www.findfoodbanksbrum.org.uk/about-us/directory/

Mental Health Support
Kooth is being provided now as a free, safe and anonymous service to support young people’s emotional and mental health in Birmingham. Because young people have suddenly had exams cancelled, transition arrangements thrown up in the air and are dealing with the impact of COVID-19 on their loved ones this is important. The new service was successfully launched yesterday for young people from year 6, aged 11 up to 25. The full offer, including online self-referral can be accessed at www.kooth.com.
Kooth is linked into the wider mental health support from Forward Thinking Birmingham and offers:
