If your child is away from school parents must inform the office by 9.15am on the first day of absence – there is an answerphone out of school hours.
In line with the Health Protection Agency guidelines, please remember that children should not return to school until 48 hours from the last episode of diarrhea or vomiting. We would be grateful if you could follow these guidelines to help prevent anyone else contracting the bug/illness.
Please refer to our attendance and holidays page for more information
Breaktime snacks should be healthy and consist of fruit, dried fruit, vegetables; NOT crisps, biscuits or, in particular, NUTS.
All children in the FS and KS1 receive free fruit or vegetables daily as part of the Government scheme. Children aged 4 also received a carton of milk each day.
We positively encourage healthy eating and hope that you will support us in this in what you provide for your children.
Hot lunches are provided by Bath & North East Somerset at a cost of £2.60 per day for children in KS2. Lunches are free of charge for Reception and KS1 children. Please pay for school meals in advance via Parent Pay.
Details of the current menu can be found on our school dinners page.
Due to nut allergies please DO NOT PROVIDE NUTS for your child’s lunch or snack, including peanut butter and chocolate spreads.
It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that the school has up to date contact details for them should they need to be contacted at any time. It is also imperative that parents contact the school if their child has any specific medical need.
Parking is a perennial problem. If you use a car to get to school could you please park considerately, observe the road markings and keep the driveways of the homes of local residents clear. Thank you.
Please see our page relating to school uniform.
For Health & Safety reasons the following are NOT ALLOWED:
Inevitably some clothing is lost from time to time. Lost property is stored in clearly labelled bins in the cloakroom areas. If not claimed after two terms we dispose of the items. If all clothing is named we can reunite items with their owners very quickly!
We have an ‘Open Door’ policy whereby we hope that parents feel they can come and talk to staff if they have concerns; unless urgent or a quick message, it is better to liaise with teachers at the end rather than the beginning of the day to either talk with them or make an appointment.
Parents have the opportunity to attend Parents’ Evenings that are arranged in the Autumn and Spring Terms. We run information evenings from time to time, usually on learning or curriculum issues.
Newsletters from the headteacher are fortnightly. The newsletters are emailed to all parents.
In addition there are web pages from class teachers regarding plans for the term, specific events or visits.
All concerns or issues regarding your child should always go through their class teacher in the first instance; most things are resolved this way.
It may be necessary to consult the key stage leader or the Headteacher as appropriate.
Please refer to our staff page for a list of staff and their roles in school.
If there is something you need to know……please ask!
