Please see below the information that you are agreeing to when your child joins our school.

Dear Parent/Carer

This document goes hand in hand with the information gathered and consents given during the admission procedure.


School Trips

You give permission for your child to participate in school trips that take place out of school in the local area (the local area is anywhere that can be reached on foot) and agree for the school to send relevant information via email or text.

These may occur at anytime during school hours and you are agreeing that your child can participate without further agreement that they can do this whilst fully supervised. This may include and not be exclusive to the ponderosa, town, museums etc.


Tooth Brushing

Our Nursery and Foundation Stage 2 class have been successfully running a Tooth Brushing programme for a while now and due to recent changes, we need your consent for us to continue supporting your child with brushing their teeth.

Tooth brushing clubs are an important part of the new early year’s curriculum and help teach children to brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste from a young age. They also encourage brushing at home.

Our teachers in Foundation have been fully trained and are supported by the Oral Health Promotion Team to support your child with their brushing.

Every child is provided with their own toothbrush, which is kept in a covered storage unit to keep it clean, and replaced every term (or sooner if needed). They are given with a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste and supervised by and adult during brushing.


Our teachers do not brush any child’s teeth for them.


Photographs, videos and other images

From time to time as part of school life there are occasions when photographs – film or digital – or videos, may be taken which include children. These times include such events as; school performances, concerts and visits, awards and general publicity. Pictures may also be used on the school’s website. We are very careful to ensure that safeguarding guidelines and strictly followed.

Please note that the children’s names will not appear with the photographs or videos.

Individual and class photographs are taken annually by a school photographer.



All pupils use the internet as an essential part of learning, as required by the National Curriculum. The school has very strict e-safety rules that are revised regularly to ensure that the internet is made as safe as possible. These rules are available on the school website.

The school will take all reasonable precautions to ensure that pupils cannot access inappropriate materials. The school cannot be held responsible however, for the content of materials accessed through the internet and is not liable for any damages arising from the use of internet facilities.
