The Office

Reporting an absence

Illness: if your child is unwell and unable to attend school, please either visit or phone Mrs Weeks in the school office rather than leaving a message with the class teacher, who may have lots of messages to remember. In this way, we can ensure that all absences are recorded correctly.

Please note that if your child is absent from school and we do not receive a message or are unable to reach you on the phone, we are obliged to follow up with a home visit to check on your childs safety.

Please ring us on each day of absence, unless by prior arrangement with the office, eg in the case of chickenpox or sickness, where a set number of days at home may be required. Mrs Weeks will be in the office from 8.30am each day.

Please note that children must be 48 hours clear of sickness or diarrhoea before returning to school.

Lines of communication

As a school we always try and have open lines of communication.

For academic queries the first port of call is the class teacher who knows your child better than anyone in school.

Questions about clubs, dinners, milk and the payment of monies are dealt with at the office.

Mrs Smart will always try and see you if circumstances permit. She does have teaching and other commitments, but will always try to be available if it is a matter that needs immediate attention.

We frequently send messages out on Parentmail so please ensure that the office has your up to date email address.

Likewise we need your most recent contact numbers in case of emergency.

Newsletters come out on alternate Fridays, again via Parentmail. If you require paper copies of policies, letters or any other information, please let the office know and this can be arranged.



School policy and ordering links

Our school uniform can be purchased online through Marks and Spencer

If any parents or carers do not have internet access or has difficulty in ordering items then please contact the PTA email:

School money: online payments

The school will no longer take payment for any item in cash. This means that all payments for school expenses, such as trips, school dinners and breakfast club can be made online with your debit or credit card. This system will benefit both  us as a school. Parents and carers will need to use the online service called ParentMail. Parents and carers will receive a unique password to be able to log on to ParentMail and pay for school meals, trips, music tuition and afterschool clubs.

For more information or to make an online payment to the school please go to ParentMail.
