FAQ's

When should my child return to school after they have been sick?

 

The advice from medical professionals is that children should be given a further 48 hours after their last bout of sickness or diarrhoea. Although your child might seem better, there is still the risk of germs being spread.

Where can I buy school Uniform?

Plain white polo shirts are acceptable which can be bought from any shop. We do not sell black trousers or skirts. We are unable to accept cash in school for orders.

 

Can my child walk home by themselves?

 

Yes - Children in Years 5 and 6 are allowed to make their own way home. We ask parents to complete and sign a school form to give permission. (visit PARENTS/USEFUL INFORMATION). If a child must be collected early for an appointment, they must be collected by an adult and signed out by the school office.

 

Can I park in the school's car park?

 

No - The car park is for staff and visitors only.

 

What should I do if my child has an appointment during the school day?

 

Appointments should be made outside of school hours or during the holidays. If the appointment does fall in school time and you are unable to reschedule, you must inform the school office in advance and provide evidence, such as an appointment letter, which can be emailed to us, or visit the school office if you have an appointment message on your phone. If you need to request a leave of absence for any reason, including religious observance, please ask for an Exceptional Leave Request form from the school office.

 

Headteachers are not permitted to authorise leave of absence for holidays during term time; these will not be authorised and could result in a fine. Due to the rise in absences before and after school holidays, medical evidence must be provided for all pupils for sickness absence to be authorised at these times.
