Please could I ask parents and carers to support us on the following matters:
I would like to take the opportunity to remind parents and carers of our school rules concerning mobile phones:
Mobile phones are not allowed in The Fernwood School – reasons include:
If a parent/carer has a need for information/communication to be made regarding their child in the course of a normal school day, they should contact the school office.
However, there may be some exceptional circumstances where a student may need a mobile phone eg off site visit. In this instance parents/carers will provide a written note to the Head of Year. If students are found to have a mobile phone without consent, the phone will be confiscated and put in a secure area. The parent/carer will be contacted to arrange collection (School Behaviour for Learning Policy January 2016).
I would ask all parents and carers to support us in ensuring your child does not break this rule.
Frequently, children’s safety has been compromised by the number of parents dropping children off on Goodwood Road, in our car-park and even on the school yard. Recently we have had two near misses where our students could have been seriously injured.
It is critical that all parents support the school by co-operating fully with the following points at the start and finish of the school day:
By working together, we can ensure that all students travel to and from school in safety.
Thank you for your continued support of the school.
Mrs T Rees
