Messages, Visitors and Family Circumstances
Messages for Students
If you have a message for your son/daughter, please let the office know as early as possible and preferably before lunchtime (insert the time lunch commences), as classes will not be interrupted to pass on routine messages. In case of emergencies, there will be exceptions to this rule; however, a paramount aim of the school is to safeguard the students' instruction time as much as possible.
Bus Drop off
Please contact the School Office before 2 pm if you would like to make a change to the drop-off destination of your child by Bus.
Change of Address/Family Circumstances
Parents are asked to promptly notify the school of any change of address, phone number, email address or place of employment. When parents arrange for students to stay with relatives or friends while they themselves are away from home for a period of time, the office must be informed in writing. We need particulars relating to the name, address and phone number of relatives/friends and the duration of the student's stay.
Similarly, any change in family status, such as a separation, must be notified to the school. This is not only for administrative purposes but also so the school can work for the pastoral welfare of the child(ren).
It is a legal requirement that all visitors to our school premises must sign in at the front office.
