Thank you for returning your parent consultation slips to school. Your child’s class teacher will not be able to provide you with a specific time but will contact you in the preferred time scale you requested.
Our current system ensures that children have enough opportunities to turn around their behaviour and make good choices in order to be successful in school. We follow a four-step system: 1. Verbal warning; 2. Strike; 3. Yellow Card; 4. Red Card.
If a child receives a red card in school, we inform you on the same day. Previously, this communication has either been in person or over the telephone. However, we have found that several problems can arise from this such as: there is no answer when class teachers make contact or children are collected from school by a different adult or walk home, etc. Also, in light of the current situation, we are unable to invite you in to school to speak about any incidents. Because of this we have adapted our system to make sure you are notified on the day of the incident and have an opportunity to speak to the class teacher if you so wish.
We will now:
– send a letter home in an envelope, notifying you that your child has received a red card.
– give a brief reason for the red card.
– send a text message to inform you a letter is being sent home.
If you would then like to speak to the class teacher in more detail, you can contact them via telephone and they will happy to speak to you.
Please make sure your children have plain black trainers or shoes for school
Children coming to school in their PE kits on their allocated day has been working well within school but please can we remind parents/carers of the acceptable PE kits:
• White t-shirt with Thorpe logo or a plain white t-shirt
- Navy blue or black shorts/tracksuit bottoms
- Black pumps or plain black trainers
- Draw string pump bag
On the 8th March schools re-opened and the Government guidance made it very clear that attendance would be mandatory from that date with a return to the ‘pre-covid’ rules on attendance including:
- Parents’/carers duty to ensure that their child of compulsory school ages attends regularly at the school where the child is a registered pupil
- Schools responsibility to record attendance and follow up absences
- The ability to issue sanctions, including fixed penalty notices, in line with local authorities’ codes of conduct
Contact Details & Medical information
It is vital we have up to date medical information about your child and accurate parents/carer contact details for us to be able to contact you if needed. Please make sure you inform the school office as soon as possible if any of your details change.
We use ParentMail for regular communication with parents/carers. If you haven’t done so already please sign up to receive notifications from school. If you need any help with this, please contact the school office.
School is closed on Monday 3rd May for bank holiday
