  • Can my child bring a packed lunch to school?

  • What can I do to help stop my children losing things while at school?

    • It always helps if everything your child brings into school is clearly marked, particularly clothing, footwear, watches, water bottles and stationery. We would also advise children not to bring in possessions, which can easily be broken or sadly missed if lost. The school cannot accept responsibility for any items left unattended on school property.

 

  • What should I do if my child is late?
    • Children who arrive at school after 9am must enter by the front entrance and report to the school office where they will be signed in late.  Please note that a parent or carer must attend with the child to sign hem in if late and book a lunch if required.  This also has to be recorded in the register

 

  • How do I report an Absence?

    • If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason at any time, please telephone the school on the first day of absence after 8.30am and by 9.30am at the latest.  Please telephone 02392 412095.

 

  •  Can I take my child out of school for a holiday?

    • Children have 13 weeks annual holiday from school and school holiday dates are published well in advance online. As such, all parents/carers are expected wherever possible to plan and take their family holidays at this time so as not to disrupt their children’s education. Since September 2013 headteachers have only been able to grant a leave of absence for exceptional circumstances. As a rule of thumb a family holiday or travelling abroad is not considered to be an exceptional reason.  Please visit http://www3.hants.gov.uk/education/hias/learning-behaviour-attendance/attendance-guidance-for-parents.htm for further information.
