At St. Cecilia’s Infant and Nursery School we both recognise and value the importance and significance of the role that parents and/or carers play in their child’s education.  We will endeavour to support your efforts at home and increase the opportunities that school can provide for you to engage fully in your children’s education.

Along with the statutory requirements for reporting to parents and/or carers three times a year regarding your child’s progress, we also arrange a wide variety of opportunities for you to lease with school and share your child’s learning journey.

On a regular basis we will signpost course/learning programmes that will take place locally (please check bulletin board/newsletters/flyers) which you may wish to access.  On occasion workshops will be held at school and we will promote these and encourage you to attend.

The school prospectus contains information regarding the school uniform, times etc. Please visit the page to view a copy.

Kind regards

Mrs. E. van de Waal

Domestic Abuse

Police guidance on the ‘999 silent solution’ call:

The 999 call system allows all 999 callers to access support if they are unable to speak during the call.  It is important that either a noise is made or that 55 is pressed.  For example, if you can only make noise, such as tapping the handset, coughing, crying or even talking to the offender, then these actions will alert the attention of the BT operator.

For support:

In an emergency always, ring 999.   Using a silent 999 call followed by 55 (or tapping/coughing into the phone) will enable police to respond.
