If your child is absent through illness, please try to notify the school so that the absence can be authorised in the register. Should they be absent for a longer period, especially if it is an infectious illness, please tell us immediately in case we need to alert other parents.
If your child is going to be absent for holiday reasons for a period longer than two weeks, please tell us the date of departure and expected date of return, using the holiday form available from the office. This may enable us to keep their place open. Normally we are able to keep a place for four weeks. If the absence is longer we must fill the place and offer the next available place on their return.
Our school lending library is available all the time and you and your child may exchange books as often as you like. We encourage children to use, enjoy and respect books. We make a small charge if books are lost or damaged.
Voluntary School Fund
Parents are invited to contribute £1 per week for their child, towards the voluntary school fund. This fund is used to provide fresh fruit for the children, local school trips, furniture and equipment and cooking activities. Any profit e.g. from school photos and fundraising activities supplement the fund.
To Keep You Informed
We will send you a regular Newsletter or send a note home as appropriate.
