Hairstyling

We request that patterns should not be shaved into the head as this can distract children and others from their learning.

Jewellery

Jewellery must not be worn to school. If your child has pierced ears, small studs are permitted, however these must be removed by the child for PE. Children who wear watches must take full responsibility for them.

Personal belongings

Children may not bring valuable personal items to school, as staff cannot be held responsible for them. Children are expected to take responsibility for their own school equipment, which must be named.

Money

Money should not be brought into school unless for school dinners, fruit or educational visits.

All money should be paid in advance, in a clearly named envelope, stating the name of the child, the amount and what the money is for.

Charging for activities

We aim to provide experiences which build on the curriculum and are important to pupils’ experiences. The school does not receive extra funding for these activities and may ask parents/carers for voluntary contributions for activities. No child will be excluded from such activities if a contribution is not received, but the visit may be cancelled if insufficient voluntary contributions are received.

Extra Curricular Clubs

We offer a wide arrange of activities during lunchtimes and before and after school. There is a cost for some clubs and some are run on a voluntary basis, however children are expected to make a commitment to an activity and attend regularly.

School Council

Representatives from each class regularly attend meetings held to discuss items on the agenda drawn up from suggestions made by the children themselves about key issues affecting them in school.

Positive Behaviour

We take great pride in the behaviour of our pupils. The emphasis in the school is on promoting independence of behaviour through intrinsic motivation, so that they can regulate their own behaviour.  This is backed up by a nurturing classroom that supports them to make the right choices.  Where necessary we use the principles of restorative practice in order to support pupils to understand the impact of their behaviours and actions.

We have a Behaviour Management Policy which is consistently applied by all adults who work in our school. It is available from school if you wish to see a copy. Our Behaviour Management Policy is linked to our three core values:

  1. Aspiration
  2. Collaboration
  3. Excellence

Partnership with Parents

Home and school

We value and appreciate the important role you have to play in supporting your child and developing a positive attitude to school and learning. We offer a wide range of opportunities for parents to actively participate in supporting their children in school. These include:

  • Open sessions – regular opportunities for parents to come and join in a lesson and to see how school works
  • Parent-Teacher consultations – this is an opportunity to find out how your child is doing in school
  • Annual School Report – this includes details of your child’s progress to date with targets for the summer term for further progression.
  • Class Newsletters -  are sent out at the beginning of each half term so that you know what your child is learning about in school. 
  • Meetings - throughout the year we have different meetings with parents in order to ensure they have a good understanding of what is happening within school

Please ask a member of staff if you would like more information.
