Code of Conduct for Parents

The school expects parents and carers to:

Always respect the caring ethos of the school.

Always understand that parents and teachers need to work together for the benefit of children.

Always demonstrate in their own behaviour that all members of the school community should be treated with respect and understand that even if there is conflict due to a member of staff’s oversight, parents must remain calm and respectful.

Always approach school staff to help resolve issues.

Always work with the school to build relationships with its staff.

Always know that children cannot be moved on request of the parent.

Always seek to clarify a child’s version of events with the school’s view in order to bring about a peaceful solution to any issue.

Always correct their own child’s behaviour, especially where it could lead to conflict.

Always avoid using staff as threats to admonish children.

We thank parents for observing the Code of Conduct.


Dates for the Diary.

Parents are warmly invited to see their child at their Class Assembly and Class Mass… Dates to appear here soon!

Head Lice

Please check your child’s hair regularly and in the event you do find head-lice, please treat them immediately to avoid further spread of these determined little creatures.


Unavoidable Closure

If it is felt necessary to close the school due to weather or building problems, this information will be sent out by text as soon as possible.


Fruit Club

Fruit club is available to all KS2 children for £1 per week. This MUST be paid on a Monday morning to their class teacher and children tick their name on the sheet. Money cannot be accepted later in the week as the kitchen needs to know numbers on Monday morning. Thank you.


Contact Forms

It is ESSENTIAL that we receive all yellow contact forms in school by tomorrow. The information on these forms is for your children’s safety in school. If you have not yet returned the form please send it in tomorrow.


Car Park

Please can we remind parents that the school car park is for staff and deliveries only. Parents are asked not to walk through the car park with children as this is a health and safety risk.


School Photographs

School photograph day is Monday 30th September. The photographer will take individual photographs and also all siblings will be taken together. If you have any pre-school siblings you would like on the group photograph, please arrive in school at 8:30am that morning.


Social Media: Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc

In line with other schools, we would like to strongly recommend that children do not have access to social media (even under parent supervision) until they are old enough to have an email account, which we believe is 13.



When it is your child’s birthday, we will now allow children, if they wish to, to give out small amounts of chocolate as a gift to their classmates. Apologies, sweets, such as Haribo’s, cannot be given out. Chocolates that contain traces of nuts must NOT be brought into school as they are dangerous to the children at St Anne’s who have nut allergies.


Own Risk

Please note, that all equipment required by the children is already in school, and there is no need for children to bring in equipment unless we have specifically requested this. All equipment is brought in at the child’s own risk, and we can accept no responsibility for any items that are lost. We would recommend that all items that are brought into school have your child’s name on in some way, including mobile phones.


Recycle with Michael

Reminder – please fill the bags sent home with unwanted clothes and shoes and return to school on Thursday.

The more bags we fill – the more cash we raise!



Next holidays

We break up for half term on Thursday 24th October at 3pm.


Chair of Governors

Our joint chair of governors, Mr. David Taylor, is leaving our board of governors in October. He has been a governor of our school for many years. If any parents would like to contribute to a collection, please send money into school in an envelope clearly marked – “collection”. Thank you


Children’s Prayers

Dear God, Thank you for the gift of life.

I am grateful for my family.
