We often hear through the grapevine that parents or children are unhappy at school. Quite often, we are unaware of these issues, and therefore unable to deal with them.
The safety and wellbeing of our pupils is of the utmost importance to us so if there has been an incident or issue at school, it's important that you report it to us so we can work with you to resolve any problems.
All of our KS2 classes have a 'Worry Box' that children can use to report concerns to us quietly if they do not feel comfortable talking to an adult - these boxes are checked regularly and we endeavour to resolve worries as soon as possible.
If you feel that an issue has been raised, but not dealt with, please contact the school office so we can continue to support you and your child.
Smoking on/around school site
Please can we politely ask that parents avoid smoking and vaping at the front of the school site when dropping children off and collecting them.
We have had a number of complaints recently about parents smoking directly outside the gates, which can be unpleasent for passers-by, as well as damaging to health.
We would also like to remind parents that they SHOULD NOT be smoking whilst at the back gates during drop off/pick up time. This is part of the school site, and smoking is prohibited whilst on school grounds.
Thank you for your co-operation with this issue.
Please can we remind parents and carers that dogs are not allowed on school site.
We understand that it can be nice to bring your dog along for a walk on the school run, but please be aware that even if your dog is not being brought onto school grounds, lively or loud dogs outside the school date can be distressing to some children.
We have recently had reports of dogs jumping up at children or becoming aggressive whilst outside the school gates so we would like to politely ask parents to be vigilant if bringing their dogs to school and where possible, keep them on a short lead to avoid incidents of this nature.
