All absences should be reported to school as soon as possible.
As children begin to mix with one another in larger numbers for the first time in months, we expect the prevalence of seasonal colds will increase. Following a change in DfE guidance, BDMAT are removing 'cold-like symptoms' from the symptoms to stay off school unless parents are advised to do so by their GP/111.
However, if your child has the following symptoms, please inform school (by calling 01827 892357) and keep your child off:
People should only access a COVID-19 test if they are showing COVID-19 symptoms. Please inform the school immediately if you receive a positive test result so that the Health Protection Team can assess the situation and advise the school community. Government guidelines regarding isolation should be strictly followed.
Where the illness is vomiting and/or diarrhoea, please keep your child off school for 48 hours after the last symptoms.
On behalf of The Nethersole C of E Academy community, I am delighted to welcome you to our website.
Please access our Curriculum pages for school work and links to home learning websites if your child is absent.

Our School, judged to be good by Ofsted (2019), is a happy, friendly school with around 280 pupils from Reception to Year 6 – along with a flourishing nursery for children from age two – with great facilities, dynamic teaching within a varied curriculum and an approach to pastoral care that celebrates our Christian ethos and values.
We are one of the six founding schools of Birmingham Diocesan Multi-Academy trust (BDMAT) and we are driven by a desire for our children to experience ‘life in all its fullness’. In order for this to be achieved we want to equip the children in our school community with the skills needed to make informed choices in the future. This means providing all with not only academic but creative skills that will help give every opportunity whilst developing the character of the child in order for them to be able to enrich the world around them; be it at a local, national or even global level.
I am privileged to be Head Teacher of such a unique, special place. I am very proud of our children and how we continue to grow and celebrate our successes together. The Nethersole looks to the future with confidence, a sense of unity and moral purpose underpinned by its Christian distinctiveness. A school is defined by the community of people who learn in it – not a building.
Mrs Jo Alexander
