Useful Information

What should my child wear to school?
We have a school uniform for the children and on P.E day they should wear our P.E/Sports Uniform.

We discourage children from bringing toys and jewelry to school as they end up getting lost and broken.

Birthday Time
We do encourage you to bring a cake for your Child’s class on that day. Mums and Dads are welcome to join in. (No Party packs please)

Staff are expected to promote acceptable behavior by setting realistic boundaries for the children in their care. When children display unacceptable behavior, the matter is talked through with them. Smacking is not permitted under any circumstance.

If your child becomes unwell whilst at school we will call to inform you. If your child is seriously ill, or is distressed, we will ask you or one of the contacts on your emergency contact list, to collect them as soon as possible.

Please do not send your child to school if they are ill.

While every care and precaution is taken for the safety of your Child at school, accidents do happen. In case of such an event, we will inform you and administer the relevant first aid or call the AAR ambulance. Please do not forget to tell us about any accidents your child has while away from school.

A full terms notice in writing is required on or before the first day of term for the withdrawal of a child at the end of the term. In default, a full term’s fee in lieu of notice is payable.

Teachers are available at the beginning and end of the day to talk about your child. We also have parent/teacher meetings in the 2nd term. We are also happy to arrange a meeting at other times, preferably at the end of the school day to avoid taking staff away from the children.

Do you need more information?

We recognize that communication between the school and our parents as well as potential parents, is critical to building a healthy and long-term relationship. Technology has enabled us to communicate in a variety of ways and when it comes to discussing your child, we always welcome a face-to-face conversation.
