Support for Parents

We hope that our children and their families feel happy, included and safe at home and school. This book of support offers help and advice for parents and carers.
As you know, we use Class Dojo to allow for easy communication between home and school. We always announce events on here, term dates and any updates. We also have a parents section on our school website with lots of information you may need.
The NSPCC say , There is no such thing as a perfect parent. One day all is calm, the next it is chaos. However it is going, we are here with advice and support for parents and carers.

If you have a safeguarding / child protection concern regarding a child or young person,

Moments Matter Attendance Counts!
It has always been important for pupils to have good attendance at school - research has shown how attending school regularly is linked to good academic and social outcomes for children.
It can be hard sometimes to know if your child is well enough for school. But the NHS has advice on when it's safe to let them go. For the majority of pupils, the best environment to learn in is school, where being surrounded by teachers and friends helps keep them safe. It’s important for your child’s academic achievement, as well as their wellbeing, wider development and mental health.
If your child is absent from school, let us know as soon as possible. Please contact the school office with the reason why.
It is important that we have two up-to-date contacts for each child so that if we need to contact you we can!
See our website and the DBC link for term dates.
We can only authorise term time holidays in very exceptional circumstances. We have a data sharing agreement with the Local Authority and an unauthorised holiday may result in a fine.
The odd days absent soon add up!
Attending on time is incredibly important too!
So, anyone who is feeling unwell and has a high temperature should stay at home until they no longer have a high temperature.
Sickness (vomiting) and/or diarrhoea may be caused by bugs, food poisoning or other reasons.
Children should remain off school for 48 hours.
Respiratory infections can spread easily between people. It is important to be aware of symptoms so you can take action to reduce the risk of spreading your infection to other people.
Concerns around Scarlett Fever are understandable. Please see the NHS guidance about symptoms and treatment.
Useful NHS advice
If your child has mild cold symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or slight cough and no high temperature, then they should attend school as usual.
If you are in any doubt about whether your child's
illness requires time off school, please contact
the school office and we will try to help. We can
also contact the school nursing service for advice.
