Toys

Children are discouraged from bringing toys into school. In that way we avoid the upset that occurs when toys are lost, broken or borrowed. Children may be asked to bring in items to support the work they are undertaking in the classroom. When this is the case we make every effort to ensure that they are looked after.

 

UBACUSUP

We follow a behaviour policy which allows children to be rewarded wherever possible as well as have a graded sanction system depending on the behaviour shown. It is designed so that children, teachers and parents all work together and follow the same principles. The full document is available on our website, www.grangefield.gloucs.sch.uk

Visits/Outings

As part of the National Curriculum our children will be involved in visits and outings. On such occasions parents will be notified in advance and asked for their permission for their child to be involved. Whenever possible all or part of the cost will be borne by the school, however parents may be asked to make a voluntary contribution if the school does not have sufficient funds to allow the trip to take place.

 

Web site

Our website, at www.grangefield.gloucs.sch.uk, is managed by the school. We will endeavour to post latest news and photo galleries as each term passes. The website also contains various policies and procedures that may be of interest, along with information about the school.

 

Walking to School

It is the policy of the Local Education Department and of the school to encourage our children to walk to school. Walking to school is not only the healthy alternative but also environmentally friendly. We hope that parents, carers and children will take advantage of the many pathways, which cross our village.
