Dear Parents / Carers,

 I hope that you all have a fantastic Christmas and that the New Year starts well for you all.  We have another busy term ahead and before we know it, it will be Easter. Where possible we will ensure that letters, texts and dojo messages are sent with enough warning of events happening in school and events will be listed on the school website. Please ensure that you inform us of any changes in contact details so that we can keep you up to date.

Miss Hovington

As I am sure you are all aware now, Miss Hovington will be leaving Glebefields after 20 years. She is off to pastures new, taking up an exciting new role with the Visual Impairment Team. We wish her every success in her new job. She has thanked you all for the support and kindness she has received over the past 20 years and wishes you all the best for 2020.

Christmas Performances

I would like to congratulate all of the children who participated in the Christmas performances (Nursery, Reception, Key Stage One and The Rock Band), everyone of them were amazing. It takes a lot of confidence to perform infront of such a large audience and they did so with a huge amount of courage. I was certainly a very proud Headteacher and you should be very porud parents. I would also like to thank you for your donations for tea, coffee and mince pies which meant we raised £180 which will go towards resources for the pupils.

Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra

On Sunday 8th December some members of the Glebefield’s Choir were extremely fortunate and had the opportunity to perform with Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra at Birmingham Town Hall. We have had positive feedback from Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra who would like to thank the children and staff for their contribution to the concert. They said: ‘the singing was brilliant, the children were well-prepared and their behaviour was excellent.’ Well done children and staff. A big thank you to Miss Green for organising it all.

Reading Reward

I would like to congratulate all of the children who attended the reading reward film night on Friday 13th December. Well done for reading regularly and thank you parents for competing their reading records. If your child didn’t attend this time, they could attend the next one by reading regulary and you completing their reading records. This is monitored weekly.


To ensure the safety of all of our pupils and their families we ask that you drive and park considerately outside of the school. We ask that you do not pull onto the staff carpark, even to drop your child off for breakfast club, as this can cause congestion and puts pupils and parents walking across the carpark to enter school at risk.

Bikes and Scooters

Please ensure that your child dismounts their bike or scooter before entering the school gates, to ensure their safety and the safety of others using the walkways. We request that all bikes are stored in the bike rack provided and not in front of the doors to the main entrance.


The main gates to the carpark will be locked between 8:30am and 9:15am each day in order to ensure that cars and pedestrians are not sharing the same path. This is to keep you and your children as safe as possible once on site.  Please use the side gates and footpaths around the carpark to enter school.  

Applying for Reception Places for September 2020

A reminder that anyone applying for a place in Reception for September 2020 must have completed the online form by 15th January 2020. If you require any assistance with this please contact the school office.
