Car Parking

All cars should be left outside the school grounds. The car park is for staff and official visitors only. Cars should not be parked on the yellow lines – doing so puts the children’s safety at risk.


Non Smoking Policy

Our school buildings and school grounds are both non-smoking areas. We ask that parents and visitors do not smoke anywhere on school premises.


Security System

All visitors to our school should report firstly to the Reception, via the main entrance. Visitors will be asked to sign in the visitor’s book and a security pass will be issued.


Suspected Child Abuse

Every school in Nottingham is required to follow a set procedure in cases of suspected child abuse. Head Teachers are required to refer their concerns to Social Care for further consideration and or investigation.
This procedure is intended to protect children from abuse. When a school refers a concern about a pupil to Social care it is not making a accusation of abuse, but asking that further investigation takes place to establish whether a child is at risk.


Equality of Opportunity

The school is committed to providing equality of opportunity to all pupils regardless of race, gender, disability or creed.



Worries need to be discussed first with your child’s teacher, then the Deputy Head Teacher or the Head Teacher. If you are not satisfied, the Head can provide information about the schools and Local Authority’s procedures. We have a Complaints Policy which is available to all parents.


Breakages and Damage to School Property

The school reserves the right to seek reparation from parents where their child has caused breakages or damage to school property.



School Fund

The school Fund comprises of unofficial monies that, although not provided by the local authority, are used to supplement the schools budget Share for the benefit of pupils. Income for the School Fund is generated by such things as school photograph commission, interest from the deposit account and savings bank account, donations and any school based fund raising event. All charitable fund raisers receive 100% of the money collected. Expenditure from the school fund includes subsidising some school visits, school workshops, concerts and plays.
