Birches Head Academy


All parents/carers are the essential communication link between school and home. Students spend much of their day in our care and we want to get it right. Our pastoral and academic teams are available to deal with every aspect of modern school life and are here to support every aspect of student development.

Parents are very much involved in the development of the school and we listen to and consider all suggestions that may have a positive impact on teaching and learning, student progress, welfare and behaviour.

Whether you choose to become a member of the Parent, Staff & Friends Association (PSFA) or a member of the School’s Governing body you are a valued member of our community.

Thursday 2nd April

Birches Head Academy will be joining the new national scheme for issuing free school meal e-gift cards whilst we are closed. For those who qualify, we will contact you and send your e-gift card by e-mail or we may ask you to collect from school as part of your daily exercise. This will commence next week as we see it as vital that we continue to support you over the Easter break. Vouchers will continue each week to the value of £15 per child.

We wish you a happy Easter.


The main office is closed from Friday 3rd April at 3pm until Monday 20th April at 8am. During the Easter period, we will be regularly monitoring emails but there will be a delay in dealing with any requests.

If you are having difficulty with the Free School Meal voucher code, we will forward your query and it will be dealt with as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience whilst we navigate this new system.

In accordance with Government guidance, the Academy will be open to the children of Key Workers only over the Easter period. Spaces allocated by request.

Thank you for your continued support in these challenging times.
