Other Policies and Additional Information

Here are some policies and additional information we think you may find useful. 

Additional Expenses

Parents are requested to provide PE bags, pull-on plimsolls for PE and PE kit (available from The Schoolwear Shop). Adequate protection for arts & craft work is essential. Where children bring other bags they should not be too big as they cause congestion in the cloakrooms.

Behaviour

A friendly, caring atmosphere is encouraged and it is found that most children are happy and co-operative. Corporal punishment is not used in the school in accordance with a policy introduced by the Education Committee and as now required by the Education (No 2) Act 1986. Should serious problems occur, then parents are asked to discuss them with the head teacher.  Our behaviour and discipline policy is part of our assertive mentoring programme.

Car Parking

The governors advise that parents park away from the front of the school when dropping off and collecting children to avoid causing congestion. We also ask that you are sensible when parking and are courteous to residents in our local area. Traffic outside the school is regularly monitored by our local community police support officer.  Please only use your car when it is absolutely necessary. The car park next to the school is for staff and disabled use only but the overflow car park is for anyone’s use.

Child Protection

Children are always our priority and we follow national and local policies on child protection. All staff have full child protection training. We may need to share information and work with other agencies when we have a concern about a child’s welfare. If a situation arises where you feel it is affecting your child you may wish to contact the teacher or head teacher. All matters will be dealt with confidentially.

Keeping staff informed of any changes in family circumstances means we can set up support networks in school before the situation becomes negative for the child.

Health

On admission to school parents are requested to inform us of any medical conditions, including allergies. Provision will be put into place if necessary, such as care plans, staff training etc.  From time to time the school nurse will check on eyes, ears, height and weight.

The school nurse team may be contacted by telephone on Northampton 678024 and they offer advice on any number of concerns you may have. 

Medicines

We will administer medicines which have been prescribed by a doctor. On no account should children be sent to school with medicine. This also includes throat sweets, lip salve, creams etc. Children should not bring throat sweets in their lunch boxes. Parents should see the school business manager or head teacher if they have any queries about this. The safety and well being of all on site is paramount.

Money

We are a cashless office and payments are collected through ParentPay.

Pupils' Details

Parents are asked to inform the school as soon as possible if there are any changes to addresses, telephone numbers, workplaces, emergency contacts etc. Problems are encountered if the school is unable to contact someone when a child has been taken ill at school. Pupil Data Checking Sheets are sent annually to parents for checking and returning any amendments to the school office.

Pupils' Welfare

If children are unwell parents are contacted and asked to fetch them from school. We have a number of qualified first aiders on our staff, as well as many appointed persons, so you can rest assured that your child will receive the best attention. In cases where it is felt necessary, an ambulance will be called.

Transport

Children are allowed to cycle to school on the condition that they have passed a cycle training course and/or have a signed consent form from their parents.
