welcome to the archdiocese of birmingham education service
Over the past few months, you have been asked to serve the needs of our young people in ways beyond all telling. I wish to pay tribute to the creative and supportive ways in which you have helped pupils in their learning and offered not only academic, but pastoral and spiritual support to them and their families. Our schools have truly shown themselves to be places where the Gospel is known and lived out in word and action in times of great difficulty.
I have been amazed and delighted to hear of the many real life stories of outreach to pupils in our communities at this debilitating time and for the willingness and support you have given to educating key worker and vulnerable children as well as planning and welcoming other pupils back to school. Thank you for all that you have done.
