frequently asked questions

  • 1. Emergencies

    Our Teaching Assistants and Midday Supervisors deal with cuts and abrasions, and we have a number of members of staff that are trained First Aiders. In dealing with cuts we may only use water. Please let us know if your child is allergic to plasters.

    If there is a serious accident, we will contact a Parent/Carer immediately, and if necessary will arrange for an ambulance to take your child to hospital. It is therefore vital that you keep the school informed of any changes of contact phone numbers of all nominated emergency contacts. The school telephone number is 0208 985 2045.

  • 2. Mobile Phones

    We have a policy that no mobile phones are allowed in school. In the case of an emergency, please write a letter to the school explaining why your child needs their phone and we will hold it in the school reception until the end of the day. On these occasions, the school cannot be held responsible for the loss or damage of your phone, if you choose to leave it in the reception area.

  • 3. Holidays

    The school cannot support parents who take holidays during the term time. However, if it is unavoidable that your child is to lose time at school for absence other than illness, please write to the Head Teacher requesting permission and this will be given due consideration.
