We pride ourselves in our strong home-school links and are pleased with the good relationship with our parents.
We regularly hold open mornings and afternoons and our good partnership is a strength of the school. The views of parents are often sought to ensure we are doing the best we can.
KEEPING YOU INFORMED
A weekly newsletter is emailed on a Friday containing all the information on the events happening in school. Occasionally letters of a more urgent or important nature will be sent home during the week. We also support local groups by sending home flyers which we hope you will find useful and informative.
We have an email service which is a very effective form of communication between home and school. Parents receive e-mail reminders of events in school and in emergency situations such as a school trip being delayed by traffic we are able to send texts to parents’ mobile phones.
We demand that parents adhere closely to the school’s uniform as set out clearly and comprehensively in the uniform policy. It is for the children to look smart; TOGETHER, but also for health and safety and to safeguard the children, which is especially important when on Educational Visits etc. which are a core element of our curriculum offer. Uniform is available from School Days Direct and My Clothing.
CHARGING FOR SCHOOL TRIPS
From time to time, children’s educational visits will be arranged. It is the policy of the governors to ask parents to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of trips. However, parents are asked to understand that trips cannot go ahead if parents are unwilling to support them.
In the event of financial difficulty, parents are asked to contact the Headteacher to discuss the situation.
