How much uniform to buy?

Many parents have asked for guidance on this.  Questions to ask;

  1. How messy are your children?
  2. How often do you wash?

We’d recommend having at least;

  • 4 polo shirts
  • 2 pairs of trousers/skirts/dresses
  • 2 sweatshirts/cardigans
  • PE kits – 1 set is usually enough as children keep them in school and they only come home for washing at the end of each half term.

How do I let the school know about medical and hospital appointments?

If the appointment really can’t be organised outside of school hours then you’ll need to write a letter to the School Office. 

The letter should state the date, time and type of appointment e.g. hospital, doctors etc and be accompanied by a copy of the actual appointment letter as well.

How will the school let me know if it’s closed due to snow?

Whilst the school is determined always to stay open, severe weather can mean that it isn’t safe for pupils to be in school. 

On these occasions the school uses their website, ParentMail and Heart radio to inform parents. 

What should I expect at parent’s evenings?

Parent’s evenings take place twice a year, in February and October. 

Appointments are available on first come first served basis- these are booked with the class teacher.  You will be able to pre-book a 10 minute slot to talk to your child’s teacher about how your child is getting on.  It’s a chance to hear from the teacher, as well as to ask any questions you may have.  You will also be able to view your child’s books.

What should I do if my child is unwell and unable to go to school?

If your child is going to be absent from school please ring before 9:30am. 

You will be able to leave a message stating name, class and reason for absence.  When your child is absent and no call has been received, we will call you to find out why your child is not in school.  Depending on the amount of time your child has off school we may require medical evidence.

When your child returns to school, send in a letter to explain the absence.
