School Office

Our School Office Staff are here to help you, however here are a few items that may be useful to parents and carers which you can view or download from our website.

Downloadable Forms

Whilst we try our best to address all situations carefully and correctly, should you feel the need to make a complaint you can find out how through our Complaints Policy which you can find in the School Policies section of our website.

Medication in School

School-held Medicines
We retain school-held non-prescription medicines for the relief of pain or insect bites. We can administer immediate relief and will not usually be administered for more than a day. All parents will be informed by the most appropriate communication method at the end of the day. On observing any adverse side effects these will be reported to parents in a timely manner.

By consenting and signing, parents state that these medicines or treatments have been given previously with no ill effects. School will also need to ascertain in person or by telephone when the last dose was given at home before administering in order to avoid over-dosage.

Prescriptive Medicines
School can administer medicines to children which have been prescribed by a registered doctor and dispensed by the pharmacy in its original container showing the child’s name. We only give dispense medicines which are needed four or more times a day.

Medical Conditions
If your child has a medical condition, we would ask that you make an appointment to discuss it, so that a Health Care Plan can be set up for your child.

Parking Information

Delivering and collecting of children safely is a major priority to the school governors and we ask that parents, where possible, park away from the school.  This is particularly important at the start and end of the school day when children may need to cross the roads. We also request that you park with consideration for our neighbours and the crossing patrol officer.
