FAQs

When was the school built?

The School has been on its present site since 1872. The infant school was built in 1963. The Oasic block was opened in September 2007 with two modular blocks completing the suite of buildings in 2011 and 2013.

Who was the first headmaster?

Joseph Spyer, who was Headmaster until January 1873

How many pupils attend the school?

At the last count the figure was 404.

What time should my child be in school?

School hours are from 8.55 am to 3.15 pm.
Children arriving after 8.55 am will be recorded as a “late”.
After 9.15 am, registration is closed and children arriving after this time will be recorded as an “unauthorised absence”.

What should I do if my child is too ill to attend school?

If your child is off school for any reason, please telephone the School Office on the first day of absence by 9.30am and then send a letter in with your child when they return to School explaining the reason for their absence.

Parents should not bring their child into school half-way through the day if they have been ill in the morning. Children should be kept at home for 48 hours after symptoms of vomiting or diarrhoea cease.

What should I do if my child has an appointment in the middle of the day?

For appointments during school time you will need to fill out an “application for holiday or special leave form” which can be found in the forms section of the school office on our website. You will need to provide an appointment card or you can send through a copy of the message that has been sent to your phone. Your child is expected to attend school prior to or after the appointement unless it is first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon. 

At time of collection, please come to the office, the classroom will be informed and will bring your child up to the office area. You must sign your child out and then back in again when you return to school.

What is the best time to talk to the teacher if I have a question?

We would discourage parents from trying to talk to a teacher in the morning as they are busy preparing for the school day. We would advise you to speak to the teacher at the end of the school day after all the children have been dismissed. Teachers can also be contacted via email (these can be found on the Staff section of the website).
