Parent FAQs

Below are a list of frequently asked questions about our school.  If you cannot see an answer to your question, please contact the office with your enquiry.

How much is a school dinner?

School dinners are charged at £2.50 per day or £12.50 per week.  Payments for this can be made via the ParentMail app.

How do I report a child's absence?

You can either phone the school office on 0161 2734654 or report it via the ParentMail app.  

What do I do if I am going to be late in collecting my child?

If you are aware that you are going to be late, we please ask that the school is informed and the expected delay is given.  If a child is not collected, and no contact can be made to the parent/carer, the child will be sent to our After School care and if necessary, charged in accordance to the fees of the care.  

How will I be informed if there is an enforced school closure?

On the very rare occasion that the school needs to close, we will inform all parents via ParentMail/text.

Can my child bring in their own snacks for break time?

In accordance to our healthy schools policy, we ask that any snacks brought into school are healthy.  We advise that fruit, cereral bars, rice cakes or breadsticks can be a suitable snack to bring in.  

How long before my child can return to school after illness?

We ask that children remain at home until they are well enough to return to school. 

Sickness/diarrhea - we ask that children remain at home for 48 hours after their last bout of illness to ensure that infections do not spread.  

How will school share information with me about my child?

Our school uses the ParentMail app as our main source of communication.  We also use Medical Tracker to alert you to any injuries or first aid that has been administered for your child.  As most of our information is given electronically, it is essential that the office has your most up to date mobile number and email address to ensure you don't miss out on an essential information.

 What is Parent Council and how do I join?

The Parent Council is a group of parents who are interested in influencing the future of the school, by getting involved in developing school and council policy by representing the views of parents to the school.  This involves giving a small amount of time come along to three or four meetings each year.  We also create events in school for pupils nad the wider community such as discos and Christmas Fairs.  Meetings are held on the first Friday of each month.  If you would like to know more about Parent Council, then please speak to Miss Zeeshan.
