At St George’s C of E Primary School we believe that homework can make an important contribution to pupil’s progress throughout the school.
We will set a reasonable amount of homework and expect that homework is completed in the time set. There is a clear expectation that children read every night at home. We will be conscious of not overdoing homework so children can take part in other activities after school.
All children will need the school PE kit. This is green T shirts and black shorts. These items are available for sale from the school office.
Children will also need pumps or light trainers for outdoor PE.
We recommend tracksuit trousers and a sweat shirt for colder weather.
PE kit should be in school each day then taken home at the weekend to be washed.
There will be an expectation that all children will be in school uniform.
We expect all children to wear the school uniform. This consists of a green sweatshirt, white polo shirt, shirt or blouse, and plain grey or black trousers or skirts/pinafore dresses. (No flares or tracksuits)
Children may also wear, grey shorts or green check/striped dresses.
Children must wear dark shoes or black trainers, dark T bar sandals with low heels are suitable for summer.
No jewellery must be worn other than small stud earrings. Nail varnish, make up or flamboyant hairstyles are considered inappropriate in school.
No jewellery should be worn during PE. This includes earrings. If earrings must be worn they should be small stud type. These are worn at the child’s own risk. Where these guidelines conflict with cultural practices, items of religious significance may be worn at the child’s own risk.
Our school uniform supplier is Crested Schoolwear - http://www.crestedschoolwear.co.uk/st-georges-primary.html
Please label all clothing in School. Any unlabelled items found will be put in a lost property area. This will be displayed periodically, and then passed to a charity shop.
Personal Items in School
Items of any value should not be brought into school. Some children may wish to bring in a small toy. Any mobile phones that you consider necessary should be handed in to the class teacher at the start of each day. No ‘ipods’ or ‘game boys’ are needed in school!
Charging Policy School trips
The Governors have accepted the Local Education Authority’s recommended Charging and Lettings policy. Copies are available in school.
The Charging Policy accepts that school may have to ask for voluntary contributions towards the cost of educational visits or certain activities in school. e.g. baking, theatre group visits.
The governors would like to point out that activities offered to the children are unlikely to take place unless sufficient offer the suggested level of voluntary contributions.
The school has costed each year group’s educational visits for the year. This information will be sent to parents at the start of the academic year.
The Local Educational Authority has issued a complaints procedure for parents wishing to complain about the provision of the Curriculum or RE as approved by the Secretary of State.
For all other complaints or concerns parents (and others) are encouraged to raise them initially with the Headteacher who will be able to discuss them either there and then or at a mutually agreed time. Should it not be possible to resolve any complaint or concern satisfactorily in this way the complaint should be put in writing and sent or given to the Headteacher. If the complaint is against the Headteacher, your complaint in writing should be forwarded to the Chair of the Governors who will inform the Local Education Authority. If you would like assistance in setting out your complaint the School will, if asked, help you to do this, facilitating access to translation services where necessary.
The School then promises to deal with your complaint as follows:-
formally acknowledge it within five working days.
tell you the name and telephone number of the person looking into your complaint.
respond to it within twenty school working days or, if it is not possible to give you a complete answer, to tell you what is being done to investigate and how long it is expected to take.
tell you if it has to be dealt with under a special procedure
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint you can write to the Chair of the Governors, Mr Stuart Harris, who will arrange for the complaints committee to consider what you have to say.
Should you still not be satisfied and want to take the matter further you will be told who else you can write to at that stage.
