School Governors

Simon Tweed

Chair of Governors

Positive relationships between govenors and schools are based on trust, openness and transparency. Effective governing bodies systematically monitor their school's progress towards meeting agreed development tagets. Information about what is going well and why, and what is not going well and why, is shared. Governors consistently ask for more information, explanation or clarification. This makes a strong contribution to robust planning for improvement and ultimately prepares the school for outstanding results.

Leave Of Absence During Term Time

The School Attendance Policy informs parents / carers about the rules when applying to take leave of absence during term time.  The policy is written in accordance with statutory regulations.  It is not an entitlement to take a holiday in term time.  No parent can demand leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday by right.  A completed application form must be submitted to the Headteacher in advance of the period of absence.  It will only be granted if  "exceptional circumstances" exist. (An example of exceptional circumstance is an Armed Services family where the parent in the Armed Services is home on leave).  The maximum leave of absence which may be granted in any single academic year is 5 days. Unauthorised leave may be referred to the local authority.

School Meals Menu

A new menu is now in place from November 2015. 

We have a banding system where children have a choice of two hot meals or a grab a bag sandwich.  This is to support the government's Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) to provide all children in Foundation Stage 2, year 1 & 2 with a free school meal. Please click HERE to view an information leaflet.

For KS2 children (years 3, 4, 5 & 6) a Primary School Meal costs £2.00 per day and £10.00 per weekPlease click on the image on the left to view the current menu.

Dinner money should be handed to your child's class teacher every Monday morning in a named envelope.

Unfortunately we cannot issue change; all money will be carried over to the following week.

Pupils recently took part in the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena. All the children worked so hard to practice and quite rightly had fun!

A selection of photographs are shown above - click on them to run a slideshow. Hopefully, the concert was as entertaining to watch as it was to participate in!

A lovely comment from a parent is also shown below.

"Thank you very much for making it possible for my daughter to be part of the choir and the Young Voices event. It was a fantastic evening and we all loved it."

Well done to the children from Y5 and Y6 that took part in the Rotherham United G4s cup on Saturday 28th November. The children watched an entertaining football match which Rotherham United won 3-0 against Bristol City. At half time the children were invited onto the football pitch to take part in a football match against Thorpe Hesley Primary School. Below are some photographs from the trip.
