If children arrive after Registration we ask that you report to the School Office for your child to be registered there. If for any reason your child leaves school during school hours, they must be ‘booked out’ via the School Office. Advance notice of dentist appointments, music exams etc., is required, in writing, for a child to be released during the school day.
WHICH SUBJECTS DO THE SCHOOL TEACH?
We teach all subjects within the National Curriculum, including French in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Subjects are mainly taught separately but cross curricular links are always sought so that learning has a real context for our pupils. There is also a variety of topic areas that are visited during termly focus weeks. We teach Sex Education as part of the Health Education programme in Years 5 and 6 and parents are invited to discuss with staff the material to be used prior to this part of the curriculum being taught. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from Sex Education and from Religious Education. Parents wishing to exercise this right should discuss this with the Headteacher.
