SFE'S UPDATES ON Coronavirus

Update 26th March 2020

All Services For Education safeguarding training sessions will be delivered online until further notice.

Update following the announcement by the Prime Minister (Wednesday, March 18) that school premises will be closed, for the majority of pupils with effect from Monday, March 23

Services For Education are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and continue to take steps to safeguard our employees, customers, children, visitors and course delegates.

We would like you to know that Services For Education remain fully functional and the majority of our staff remain at work and are therefore available to support schools remotely in the forthcoming weeks.

For our current training courses, we will be either delivering these through online means or deferring them to later in the year. We are also reviewing our training portfolio for the remainder of the academic year and considering where we can add in additional online courses. 

We remain committed to the children and schools in Birmingham and look forward to a time when schools become fully functional again. In the meantime, if there is anything we can do to help make your situation easier, then do please contact us.

Update 20th March 2020

Important: cancellation of 2019/20 national curriculum assessments

We regret that, following the announcement by The Secretary of State for Education (on Wednesday 18 March), the 2019/20 national curriculum assessments will not now take place due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
As a result, all early years foundation stage, key stage 1 (KS1) and key stage 2 (KS2) assessments, have been cancelled.

Sadly, this means that no monitoring or moderation activities will take place in 2019/20.

Should you need any information or have any queries, please email Natasha Lawson-Hollingsworth, natasha.lawson-hollingsworth@servicesforeducation.co.uk
