PARENTS

Parent Cafe Sessions

We hold informal parent cafe afternoons throughout the term after school for parents to meet each other and discuss school related issues; this is attended by Miss Ingram or Mrs McMillan. 

 

Parental Support

There are ways in which you can support the school; by giving time to hear children read, by assisting in the library or accompanying children on educational visits.  Parents are encouraged to come into school and share their interests and skills with us.  All parental help is warmly welcomed. If you feel you have a particular skill which you would want to share, please talk to your child’s teacher.

 

Parent / Pupil Learning Conferences

Parents are invited to come and discuss their children’s progress with members of staff in the Autumn and Spring term.  These conferences are an invaluable opportunity where parents can share in the celebration of their child’s achievements and discuss the next steps in their learning journey.  A formal written report is sent home to all parents a the end of the summer term.  

 

Medicines at School

 Please see our Medicines in School Policy for further information

 

Complaints Procedure

The children's health, safety and welfare at the heart of all we do.  From time to time however, it is possible that you feel we haven't lived up to your expectations.    In the first instance all concerns should be discussed with the class teacher.   We have a comprehensive complaints procedure which can be accessed on our policy page.  Please do refer to this.

ATTENDANCE & TERM DATES

The policy for Attendance and Term Time Absence can be found wihtin the policy section of the website

Absences

In the event of sickness, absence or late arrival we ask parents to:

Contact the office as soon as possible (01206 240251), but definitely before 9am, whenever their child is unable to attend.

Keep the school well informed in cases of lengthy absence, so that work can be sent home in certain cases and in order for staff to prepare for the child’s return.

Provide notice indicating attendance at the dentist, doctor or optician before the arranged appointment unless an emergency situation has arisen and sign their child(ren) out and back in again when attending appointments during the school day.  We please ask for such appointments to be made out of school hours where possible.

Let the school know if their child is going to be late, e.g. if a car breaks down; if an urgent appointment has been made.

Term time holidays will not be authorised and only 'exceptional circumstances' will allow an absence applied for in advance to be authorised by the headteacher.  Fines may be imposed on parents taking their children out of school for unauthorised absences.  Application forms for absence are available via the school office, as is a copy of the Attendance and Term Time Absence Policy and Procedures. 

Punctuality

We believe that the school and parents should work together in order to achieve high standards of attendance and punctuality.

 

The school day begins at 8.45 a.m. when the register will be taken.  Children may come in and work on quiet classroom tasks after 8.40 a.m.  Children arriving after 8.50 a.m. should report to the school office.    

Registers close at 9.00 a.m.  Lateness after this time is classed as an unauthorised absence unless it is for a medical appointment or a reason is provided which can be authorised by the Head Teacher.  Children can only be released for appointments during the day if they are personally collected from the school by a parent or other known adult.  Older children will be allowed to walk home but only with written permission from their parents or guardians.
