    Coronavirus (Covid-19): Implementing social distancing in education and childcare settings:

    Fraud targeting parents of children in FSM:

    The DfE has warned that fraudsters are targeting parents of children eligible for free school meals. Families have received an email requesting their bank details, claiming this will enable their children to continue receiving meals through school closures amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    DfE are urging parents to delete the scam email immediately.

    Children with Asthma:

    Asthma UK published the following shielding advice yesterday for children with asthma:

    "If you are, or your child is, taking:

    · Any biologic therapy, also called a mAb (Xolair/omalizumab, Nucala/mepolizumab, Cinqaero/reslizumab, Fasenra/benralizumab)

    · Steroid tablets or liquid every day

    · Antibiotic tablets or liquid for asthma every week (e.g. azithromycin)

    · Tiotropium

    · A combination inhaler that also contains a long-acting bronchodilator (e.g. Seretide, Fostair, Symbicort) at a high daily steroid dose (see the list … the article)

    · An inhaler with a high daily steroid dose (see the list….in the article) AND you are taking Montelukast

    Or, if:

    · You have been admitted to hospital for your asthma in the last 12 months

    · You have ever been admitted to an intensive care unit for your asthma

    Then you should follow the shielding advice which is set out in very helpful detail, including how to register for extra services from the government.”

    Over the next few weeks children may be spending an increasing amount of time online and it is therefore important that they know how to keep themselves safe online.

    To support this will be sharing a series of age appropriate worksheets for parents to complete with children at home -

  • TFT Schools Participate at Echo Eternal Horizons Event

    Published 18/02/20

    In January 2020, Parkgate Primary, Barr’s Hill, Stoke Park and President Kennedy Secondary Schools took part in the Echo Eternal Horizons Performance Event which took place at the sumptuous Town Hall in Birmingham. The evening comprised music, dance and spoken word tributes as artists and students shared their work and remembered together.

    Our schools showcased their moving film echoes and exhibited their thought provoking art work inspired by testimony from the Holocaust survivors with whom they have worked. Each school’s response to survivor testimony is made eternal through a short film which articulates learners’ tribute to each individual survivor. The films are grounded in the words of the survivor, each film beginning and ending with verbatim testimony.

    The Echo Eternal is a live project across a network of eighteen schools and The Futures Trust are proud that four of its schools are included within this inspiring initiative.

    Well done to all our schools who participated so impressively at the Horizons Performance event. We are certain that this will be an important memory for all of you who attended the event.
