Lunchtimes

We are very proud of our Healthy School accreditation and ask all parents to send their children to school with healthy food choices for their lunch.

Attendance

We teach maths, reading and writing in a structured way where each lesson builds on the previous one. If a child misses too many sessions they fall behind the rest of the group and often need extra tuition to help them catch up. It is therefore crucial that your child attends school unless unwell in order for them to make good progress. As a school we will do all we can to ensure maximum attendance for all children. Any problems that impede full attendance will be identified and promptly addressed. It is the policy of our school to celebrate achievement and we actively promote and encourage 100 per cent attendance for all our pupils. If your child is ill and unable to attend school, please notify the office by 9.30am. If we do not receive notification from you we are obliged to enter your child’s absence as unauthorised.

Complaints Procedure

If you have any complaints regarding the school please contact the Head of School or Chair of Governors, Mrs Kelly Caplin. Any correspondence to Mrs. Caplin can be sent to the school and will be forwarded to her.
