Early Closure on the Last Day of Christmas Term

8 December 2023

Dear parents, carers

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to inform you of a positive change to our school day on Friday, December 22nd. I am pleased to share this exciting news with you, as it aligns with the plans of many local schools and businesses.

In the spirit of the upcoming unique and later than usual finish to term, so close to the holiday season, we, along with all schools and the central team in the Fairfax Multi Academy Trust (FMAT) have decided to adjust the school day on Friday, December 22nd.

The decision to align our schedule with other local institutions closing on this day aims to provide a more cohesive experience for our students and facilitate easier coordination for families on the last working day before the holiday season.

Here are the details of the revised schedule for Friday, December 22nd:

School will commence as normal at 8:40am and end after period 3, at 12:40pm.

We understand the importance of family traditions and the joy that the holiday season brings. We hope that this adjustment will allow you and your family to make the most of this special time together.

As during times of lockdown and snow days, there will be provision in school for students up until the usual finish time of 3:10pm if required.  School will also provide packed lunches for all our Free School Meals students, and these will be available for collection from our school canteen at break time. Any parents wishing to take these offers up, could we kindly ask you to inform reception no later than 12:30pm on Tuesday 19th December.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please feel free to reach out to us at Erdington Academy on 0121 373 1080. We value your understanding and support as we strive to create a positive and enjoyable learning environment for our students.

Thank you for your continued partnership with Erdington Academy, and we wish you and your family a joyful holiday season when it arrives.

Yours sincerely,

S Mallett
