Last modified: March 17, 2016

If you would like to look round our school, please contact the school office on 01952 387780.

All applications to the school must be made through Telford & Wrekin Council. All information about their processes and policies are on their website – http://www.telford.gov.uk/admissions.

The children who enter our school the year they will be 5 will be classed as Reception children. All children start school in September and will attend full-time. Pupils are taught in mixed year classes, with two or three year groups per class. The school has a policy that the maximum year group is 12.

School Uniform

All clothing should be marked with your child’s name

Our school colours are navy and pale blue. Navy sweatshirts and white or pale blue polo shirts are worn by all the children, together with grey trousers, skirts or pinafore dresses. During the summer months, girls can wear pale blue summer dresses. The school can supply sweatshirts, polo shirts and other items with the school logo on. Orders are taken at various times during the year and you will be informed via newsletters when an order is to be placed. For more details on uniform and prices, please see the office.

Flat heeled sturdy shoes should be worn (trainers are only permitted for P.E with plain navy, black white or grey socks/tights). Please do not send your child to school wearing jewellery. Children who come to school wearing jewellery, including earrings, will be asked to remove them. Watches are encouraged but they must be removed when doing P.E.

PE Uniform

All children need a plain white short sleeved T-shirt, plain navy or black shorts and tracksuit and /or sweatshirt and jogging bottoms, plimsolls or trainers with grip and socks.

We can provide P.E shirts with an embroidered school logo if required (please ask the school office). Please ensure that P.E kits do not have brand logos or decorative stripes etc, on them. As storage is limited, kit should be in a small named drawstring bag.

Attendance

Parents should let the school know why a pupil misses school for any reason. On the day of absence a telephone call must be made to the school administrator before 09:15am if possible. Absence for illness or medical reasons is an authorised absence. Holidays will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances. It is not an automatic right for children to have their time off for holidays. All requests should be submitted in writing (forms available from the office). The School Education Welfare Office monitors pupil absence and will contact parents if they have concerns about individual children’s attendance in school.

The school gates will be locked at 9.00am. Parents are asked to sign the late book in the school office if they arrive after this time. Parents of continual late arrivers will be contacted by the head teacher.

The school is very proud of our 97%+ attendance rate over the last few years, this is as a result of parents commitment to the education of their children.

The governors have set a target of 98% attendance for the school for 2015/2016.
