If your child is sick please ring the school on the morning of the first day of absence. When your child returns to school please send in a note addressed to the class teacher explaining the reason for his / her absence. All absences must be covered by a written note.
Please notify the school in advance by letter of any appointments your child has. If you collect or return your child after morning or afternoon registration, please come to the school office to sign them in / out.
We encourage the children to become responsible for their belongings and to keep them safely in class or their school bag. Please ensure all of your child's belongings are named as this enables us to return it to them when found. Lost property is kept by the back doors of the school and is available to the children at break times and after school. At the end of each term, unnamed items are taken into the playground at the start and end of the day for collection but subsequent to this they are usually disposed of.
If there is a specific item that cannot be found, please mention it to the class teacher and they will attempt to locate it.
There is no parking available on the school site, this is reserved for staff and visitors to the school. There is plenty of parking at St. Anselm's Church and we ask parents to use this and walk round to the school. We ask that parents are considerate of the school's neighbours.
It is important that we have up to date contact details for each child in case we need to contact their parent or carer. If these change please come to the front office to inform the office staff or send in a letter.
The ParentMail service has been in use at Our Lady’s School for some time and has proved to be a very useful and convenient method of communication between school and home. As well as emails, communication with parents may be made via text message to parents’ mobile phones. If you are not able to receive emails but would like your mobile number registered to receive text messages, please fill in your mobile number to authorise this.
IMPORTANT – Our school messages will be sent from the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you add this address to your email address book (or approved sender list) in order to prevent messages being blocked by your SPAM/JUNK filters.
If you have any worries or concerns about your child please make an appointment to speak with their class teacher. If they are not available Miss Quinn and Mrs Foster are always available to meet with parents. To arrange an appointment to speak with a member of staff please speak to the school office.
