It is very important that children come to school every day and arrive on time. Please ring or text the school if your child is too ill to come to school. Please keep children off for two days following sickness/ diarrhoea to avoid others being ill.


Family Holidays

Holidays must only be taken during school holidays.



Please look at the:

  • Newsletters (usually 4 a year with lists of events).
  • The school website (you can link the calendar to your phone if you wish to )
  • Parents and carers class notices.



Even though we always do our best to make sure things are kept safely in school, sometimes items do go missing.

Please do not let your child bring toys or valuables to school. The local authority holds no insurance for lost or stolen items and so you cannot be reimbursed.

Please put your child’s name in clothing.

Children must not bring phones or games into school



Nothing containing nuts is to be brought into school as some children have life threatening allergies.



All children can have fruit provided by the Fruit Scheme.



You can order milk for your child at It is free if your child is under 5 or entitled to free school meals (not universal free meals for young children). If you want to do this by post then a form is available from the school office.



Children can bring a bottle of water (but only water) with their name on.

If you wish to send an additional snack it must be a non-processed fruit or vegetable.

No nuts or seeds.



All Reception, year 1 and year 2 children are entitled to a free school meal.

Children may bring a packed lunch or go home if you prefer.

Please do not send any fizzy drinks, nuts, products containing nuts or any sweets in the packed lunch.



If you need to speak with your child’s teacher, staff are available every day between 8.50am-9.00pm. You are welcome to have a chat or look at your child’s work during this time. If you need a private discussion, staff are always happy to arrange an appointment. Parent/carer interviews are held twice a year.

If you wish to talk to the headteacher then the school office staff can arrange this for you.



On some Friday mornings we have an assembly led by a class. You are welcome to join us for your child’s class assembly. The presentation from the class is usually followed by our Friday ‘Golden Book’ when certificates are given to children. These assemblies start at 9.10 and last for about 30 minutes (sometimes longer).



Please be aware that you are not to take photographs or video any school activities or events, including outdoor events such as the sports morning. Please keep your phone out of sight so there is no misunderstanding about this when you are in the school building or at an outdoor event.

Failure to comply is likely to result in a ban from attending events e.g. the Christmas concert and leavers assembly.



Please put your phone away as you enter the building and when you meet your child and the teacher at the classroom door at hometime.

Children must not have phones in school.






  • Please do not bring dogs into the school grounds.
  • Please do not leave dogs tied by the gate where children have to walk past.
  • Please do not bring pushchairs into school.
  • Please do not smoke or vape on the premises, grounds or near the entrance to the grounds.
  • No scooters/bikes etc. are to be ridden in the school grounds.



Staff do not usually administer medicines in school. If your child has a prescribed medicine you can come into school to give your child the medicine or talk to your GP about working out dosages so that they are not needed in school.

Extremely rare exception to this include some lifesaving medications such as Epipens which staff volunteers can be trained to administer with the correct paper work completed by the home, doctor and school.

Children who are asthmatic and have an inhaler must have an inhaler in school and the correct paperwork in place. It is the parent or carer’s responsibility to keep the inhaler in date.



While your child is in school there will be times when they will be using information from the internet. Our school system has filters to reduce the risk of unwanted material being accessed by the children. There are also staff members present. This also means that they know how to access the internet at home so please have appropriate filters and supervision in place.


There are very helpful resources about keeping children safe online, including videos to watch with your children at



We hope that your child will be happy at Inglehurst Infant School and will make good progress.  However, if you have any problems then please talk to the class teacher or ask to meet with the Headteacher. We do have a complaints procedure, copies of which are available from the school website or from the school office.









Governors are volunteers who work in partnership with the Head teacher and staff. They are involved in setting school policy and make visits to observe the activities of the school. They are appointed for a period of up to 4 years, although they can be re-appointed if they are interested in continuing. They meet, as a Governing Body, once or twice a term, and also take part in committees which meet at least once a term. Some Governors are parents. Elections are held whenever there is a vacancy and all parents are entitled to vote. The LA appoints a Governor, one is appointed by the staff and the Head teacher is automatically a Governor. The remaining places are given to people appointed by the Governing Body.


Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

There is information on our website about how we cater for children with SEND. The school has a teacher who is our Inclusion Manager. Her role includes that of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo). She is happy to talk to parents and carers about SEND concerns.


Child Protection

The school has a child protection policy which is available on the school website or from the school office. The school makes referrals to social care and safeguarding.


Children’s Behaviour

The behaviour policy and the anti-bullying policy are available on the school’s website or from the school office.

In school there are sometimes children with severe behavioural difficulties who present behaviour that may necessitate the use of physical interventions to prevent injury, damage to property, or the breakdown of discipline. Part 2 of our behaviour policy covers the use of physical intervention and is available on request for parents or carers to read.


Parents and carers can ask to meet with our Family Support Worker who is in school for one day a week. She can advise on many areas including children’s behaviour, domestic violence and housing.


The school has an Attendance, Welfare and Child Protection Officer.


The Inclusion Manager can advise on SEND, Children who are ‘Looked After’, and children with English as their additional language. She can also help with referrals to the school nurses team and discuss support for medical conditions.
