In light of the recent announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday 14th June in relation to a delay in all lockdown restrictions, I have made the decision to postpone the ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ due to take place on Wednesday 23rd June 2021. This is with deep regret as I understand many of you will be feeling excited and perhaps a little anxious as your child is due to start school. I’m sure both you and your child are very keen to meet their new teacher and the members of staff that will be working with them. With this in mind, we have decided to reschedule this informal event.

Teddy Bear’s Picnic

The revised date for this gathering is Monday 6th September 2021 between 2:00pm- 3:00pm. Parents can come into school on this day with their child and enjoy playing, meeting new friends and participating in a variety of fun activities.  Children are asked to bring in their favourite teddy bear or cuddly toy.

Reception Parent Meeting

We would like to welcome you all to a Parents’ Meeting before the end of term so we can provide you with as much information as possible about our school. Due to COVID-19 measures still being in place, this is arranged for an evening after school to ensure the safety of our school community. This is now planned for Thursday 15th July 2021 at 5:30pm. Please can I ask that all parents wear a mask and observe social distancing throughout their time at school. No children are required to attend this meeting.


If you have any concerns regarding your child starting at St Alban's please contact Mrs Thompson on 0121 444 6530 or
