· Are you a Sports Coach? Would you like to push out Alerts to your Team? If you do then contact the office so that we can give you the power.

· Remember that alerts are free to send and free to receive.

· This App also works well on Android Tabs and IPads! Put it on all of your devices!!




Parents must notify the school if their child is going to be away. Please phone or email, a message can be left on the answer phone at any time.  Alternatively you can post it through the School App. Notes are expected, particularly if parents are withdrawing their children for any length of time e.g. for hospital visits, trips or for personal reasons.

This is important. The school needs to be told when and why your child is away. It is also a courtesy to the teachers. In line with current policy, the School will text/email the primary caregiver if pupils are not accounted for and if no response is received, the office will call home.

Students who arrive late or after an appointment must report to the office to sign in. Any child leaving school for an appointment must sign out at the office.
