LA Penalty Notice System Reinstated

Side Gate

The side gate will be closed at 9am every morning. 
So if you arrive after that time you will need to come through the office and sign your child in.

Uniform Policy
It is important that all children keep to the school dress code.  This ensures all children are dressed equally and it shows school visitors that we enforce high standards in school.  The following issues need to be addressed:-
Children should be wearing dark shoes for school, not trainers.  Trainers should only be worn for outdoor PE.
Children should not be wearing false nails of nail varnish for school.
Children should only wear a watch and/or small stud earrings.  No other jewellery should be worn.
Hair accessories should be kept to a minimum and where possible kept to school uniform colours.  Very large hair bows and head bands are not appropriate for school.
Mobile phones should not be brought to school unless necessary.  They should be kept in the school office.

Parking
Please can all parents and guardians take care and park considerately.
There are a number of road safety concerns that are making it difficult and dangerous for the children to cross into school each day.
DO NOT PARK OR DROP-OFF ON THE ZIG ZAG LINES.
