Frequently Asked Questions
It's raining, will after school clubs be cancelled tonight?
Clubs are never cancelled due to bad weather. The children will instead take part in fun activities in the classroom.
How often will the teacher hear my child read?
The teachers aim to ensure that the children read once a fortnight on a 1:1 basis to an adult in school; the children also read in a group with the teacher once a fortnight.
My child has special needs: what will the school do to help him/her?
Your child's teacher will place him/her on Stage 1 of the Government's Code of Practice if s/he has a concern about his/her ability to make progress in an area of the curriculum, or wider school life. The teacher will then set some separate targets for your child. If Mrs Cox, the school's Special Needs Manager (SENCO), feels that your child has more urgent needs, she will place him/her on a higher stage - this will see him/her receive additional support in school. Mrs Cox will write to you if this is the case.
What is 'Miss A Play'?
Our definition of a Miss A Play is the loss of ten minutes of a Friday morning breaktime. A child in Miss A Play will have their name recorded in the Miss A Play book; and their parents will receive a letter telling them about this.
How often will my child receive a Crown Certificate?
Most children receive a Crown certificate each term in recognition for ten crowns received.
Can my family have another ticket for the Christmas production please?
Sorry, but each family is restricted to two tickets each year. We simply don't have enough space in the hall to offer additional tickets. There may be spare tickets on the day and if you phone the school office that morning, they will try to help.
