Attendance 
 
In order to get the most benefit from school it is important that all children attend on a daily basis. In the event of an absence the school should be informed as soon as possible and a note should be brought to the teacher on return to school. 
Parents 
 
To minimise disruption to teaching time parents are requested to arrange a suitable meeting time with their class teacher. Access to school is through the main entrance. 
Parents should collect children from the back door at home time. On a wet day children should be collected from the front entrance. 
As a consequence of supervisory demands all children must go outside at break and lunch times (except on wet days) 
Parents must inform the school if they wish to delegate someone else to collect their child. 
Parents are asked to keep the school updated on changes of address or telephone numbers. 
Homework 
 
Parents are asked to assist their children and co-operate with the school’s homework policy. 
Homework should be signed. 
Lunchtime 
 
School dinners cost £2.60 per day. A menu for each month is printed on the back of the school newsletter. Pupils may pay daily or weekly. 
Those pupils bringing a packed lunch are encouraged to bring a healthy lunch with only one treat item. 
As a Health Promoting School the children are permitted to drink only milk or water. 
Children are permitted to fill a lidded cup or bottle from the filtered water tap in the central resource area. 
Uniform 
 
Children are encouraged to wear the school uniform and are expected to come to school neatly and cleanly dressed each day. 
Parents are encouraged to have children’s names on all items of clothing. 
Our PE uniform consists of white T-shirt, red shorts & trainers. 
Health and Safety regulations require us to ensure that; 
 
*Items of jewellery eg. bracelets, rings and chains should not be worn. 
*Children with pierced ears may wear small stud earrings.  
*Long hair should be tied back. 
Wet day routine 
 
If it is wet in the morning children sit in the cloakroom until 8.45am when they go to the classroom of the teacher on duty. 
At home time children will assemble in the front foyer and should be collected from there.
