HANDBOOK

We expect children to attend school each day and to be on time. Lateness disrupts the lesson for other children and is taken very seriously at Cleves. The school has a policy of telephoning families on the first day of absence to see why your child is not in school. This policy is in place to keep your child safe. To avoid the need to call you, we ask all parents to ring the school if your child is not well.

Please come to see us and we will discuss this with you further. Drinks are provided and children are encouraged to eat a healthy balanced diet.

Children staying with a packed lunch may bring a drink. Please do not send children to school with cans or glass containers.
Free School Meals
Although all meals are currently free, it is very important that you let us know if you may be entitled to free school meals. You may be allowed free school meals if you or your partnerare in receipt of: Income Support, Income-based Jobseekers Allowance, support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 or Child Tax Credit.

By making sure we have record of your entitlement we can ensure that you do not lose access to free meals if the borough changes the funding for pupils. If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals, you can make confidential enquiries and pick up an application form at the school office or at the Education Office in Stratford.

Uniform
To celebrate the new Federation of Cleves and Tollgate Primary schools, both our schools will be celebrating this with a new uniform from September 2014. A uniform that brings us together is important as it sets out our commitment to an outstanding future in both our schools.

The new uniform is now available from Ian Howards at High Street North.

There will be a gradual change and there is no need for parents at either school to buy any new uniform until your child outgrows the one they are already wearing.

Both schools will wear ‘Royal Blue’ and there are different logos for each school.

The uniform brand with logo sold at Ian Howards can be seen below.
