NEWTON FERRERS

Church of England Primary School

Additional Information

Wellington Boots

The children in Voss regularly undertake a ‘Welly Walk’. It would be really helpful if children could be provided with a pair of wellingtons to keep in school.

 

Visitors to the School

May we please remind all visitors to the school that they must report to reception on arrival and sign in the visitor’s book. Once registration has begun at the start of the day, all outer doors will be closed and should NOT be used as a means of access to the school. Also, if your child is late, or they have forgotten something and you wish to drop it in to them, please come to reception.

 

Volunteers in Schools

We are always delighted to be offered voluntary help in school, either on a regular or casual basis. If you would like to assist with reading or any of the workshops that are offered during the term, please see either your child’s class teacher or Mr Brown.

It is a requirement that all volunteer helpers undergo a check with the Disclosure & Barring Service. These checks are now carried out on-line. Please contact the school office for more information.

 

Dillons

The residents of our neighbours in the bungalows at Dillons are elderly and some are infirm. Please do not park in the bays that are reserved for Dillons. We would ask you also to respect the privacy of the residents and not use their paths as a walk-through to the main road. Thank you

 

Cake Raffle

A cake raffle takes place each Friday and tickets may be purchased on the day at 25p each (maximum of 4 tickets per child). The cakes are made by willing volunteers and we will happily add any names to the rota which is kept in the school office.

Proceeds from the raffle go to boost PTFA funds. 

 

Parking and Bicycles

The limited parking within the school grounds is for staff (school and playgroup) use only. However, there are also two disabled bays for anyone requiring this facility. Parents bringing or collecting children from school are asked to park, with consideration, outside of the school.

Parking for Bicycles and Scooters is provided outside the main entrance door. For the health and safety of everyone, please ensure that cycles etc, are not ridden whilst on school premises.

 

 

Please note that our policy regarding attendance can be found at the first federation website.

Applying for Secondary Schools

Parents will receive a package containing letters addressed to them containing the UID’s (unique identifying numbers) enabling parents to make application for their secondary school(s) via the online Admissions Application facility which opens on 1st September.
 
The system opens on 1st September and closes on 31st October. It is very important that parents apply within this timescale as late applications may be disadvantaged where schools are oversubscribed. The letter contains links to Open Events at Secondary Schools, transport information, supplementary forms where necessary and designated area maps. The actual application facility will be open at
www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline, parents may express up to three preferences ranked in priority order. Any queries should be directed in the first instance to the Customer Service Centre on 0345 155 1019.
 
Parents may still complete a hard copy form of course and this can be obtained from the Customer Service Centre (pdf) but applying online is encouraged.  The facility now operates on smartphones and other devices and applicants will receive email confirmation of receipt, as well as electronic notification on Allocation Day, Thursday 1st March 2018, of the outcome.
