Small School Afternoon Letter to Parents/Carers - 28th April 2021
Map of the School - Please note that all children will line up in single file at the posts outside their classrooms. Staff will meet and greet and children will sit in set seating plans for all of their lessons. Children will stay in their year group bubbles while on the school site. Pupils will only need equipment for that day, please discourage them from bringing everything, for all subjects, every day as this will make their bag very heavy!

Times of the Day
Absence & Attendance - Attendance is crucial. Pupils who attend school make the most progress. If your child is absent, please send all emails to email@example.com.
This is how you notify us of child absence. Please address all correspondence to Mrs Wheatcroft, our Attendance Officer.
Safeguarding & E-Safety
a day in the life of......
Split Families - We are also updating our records for our reporting and monitoring. Parents and carers will have access to the school SIMS app where they can monitor attendance, achievements and school reports. If parents live in different households, we are able to set up viewing on the parent platform so that both parents can access the information separately. This is recorded as 'split family' on our system which then triggers all information to be sent to more than one household at a time.
If you require information to go to two different households so that both parents can access information, please email our SIMS manager, Mrs Sarah Davies
firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject heading of the email please title it as " Y6 SF" or " Year 6 Split Family information." Include the following information
Emergency phone numbers - Please ensure your child has 3 emergency phone numbers written on the inside cover of their personal planners. If they need to use the school phone, your contact details are available to them quickly. The pupil will be responsible for keeping the contacts with them.
ParentPay - A ParentPay Activation Letter will go out in the first week, this our online payment system and a communication link for emails and texts that come from the school office. Pupils from "Split Families" must contact Mrs Karen Pitman to set up a 'secondary account'. Please email email@example.com so that she is able to set this up ready for the first day of term. Second accounts can only be set up via Mrs Pitman.
Lockers - All pupils will require a locker to store their PE kit and other belongings. This fee is paid by parents/carers via ParentPay. The cost of this is £25.00 for a 5-year hire and must be paid at the very start of term. Once payment is made, the child will receive a locker key the next day. Please note, all replacement keys are £5.00. We endeavour to issue all locker keys within the first few weeks of the academic year.
First point of call for parents contacting the school - To streamline communications, all contact should be made with the child's form tutor in the first instance. The Form Tutor will then pass to the appropriate member of staff if they are unable to answer your question. For SEN enquiries, your first point of call will be Ann Kelly, our SENDCo. For all Safeguarding, your first point of call will be Mrs Abela, Mr Carton, Mr Del Busso or Mrs Hunt. These are the designated people who work as team.
Library opening hours - 8.30am - 5:00pm daily.
Medication - All medication, apart from epi pens and inhalers must be kept with the pupil. All epi pens must be handed in to the office on arrival on the first day.
FSM - In this difficult time, we understand that some of you may have different working situations. This may mean your child is now eligible for free school meals whereas they may have not been eligible before March 2021.
If you would like to apply, please follow the link for an application form, or contact our school office for assistance. https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/education-and-children/social-care-and-supporting-families/free-school-meals
