5. What should I do if I think my child is being bullied?

Advise your child to speak to an adult in the school. This can be any member of staff that they feel comfortable with. You may also wish to support your child by talking to the teacher with them. We would encourage that they report any incident to the class teacher as they can observe behaviour during lessons and advise lunchtime staff as necessary. We take accusations of bullying very seriously and any incidents are dealt with appropriately and with speed. If you are concerned about your child, please speak to a member of schools senior leadership team and never approach a child or their parent.

We do not have car parking facilities on site. Our school gates are closed at all times and vehicles are not allowed on site between 08:40 - 09:10 and 15:00 - 15:30. The school is situated on residential roads and we ask parents to park legally with due consideration for our neighbours. For those parents/carers with blue badges, we have a disabled space at the front of school.

We can also make appointments in the school office for parents to see the class teacher or another member of staff.
