Q&A for Prospective Parents
These are the most common questions we are asked, and all the things we would normally discuss at our parents’ open evening.
Hopefully we have covered everything here, but if you have any further questions Please send us an email at email@example.com and we will get in touch.
What if my child has Special Education or needs?
Care plans will be written for children with medical needs, which may be a standard form we send home, or the First Aid Coordinator may call you to put together a full care plan. Children with medical needs and educational needs are highlighted to all staff so wherever they are in the school the staff member will be aware of what they need. Asthmatic children are encouraged to carry their own named inhaler and self administer, please also send a spare to the office if possible. For safety, all other medicines should be kept in the medical room. We provide medical passes for those who may need to go to the toilet frequently and early lunch passes for those who need it – for example timing medicines with meals.
Please put your child’s name on everything!
What do pupils need to bring to school?
Every pupil must have certain basic items of equipment in order to work effectively within school. We recommend one pencil case including:
Writing pen (blue/black)
30cm transparent ruler (marked in mm and cm and not flexible)
Solid glue stick
Non-scientific calculator clearly marked with the pupil’s name.
WOWO pen for use on mini white boards.
Set of highlighter pens to include pink, green, yellow and orange
Scissors are provided by the school
Knives, including penknives, must not, on any account, be brought into school.
Chewing gum is not permitted.
Please name everything!
Can my child bring a mobile phone?
What is the Linslade Learning Toolkit used for?
What happens if my child loses someting?
What happens at lunchtime?
Will my child be given homework?
Developing regular homework habits is a key area where parents/carers can make an essential contribution to their child’s progress. We will work closely with families whose child shows evidence of struggling in this area. Please contact your son/daughter’s form tutor in the first instance if you have any questions or concerns regarding homework.
