The safety of all our children is of paramount importance. Therefore parents/carers who bring children to school by car must not:
We also ask that you park considerately and do not obstruct driveways of neighbouring houses. Unfortunately, some of our neighbours have had their cars damaged by inconsiderate driving. We have a good relationship with our neighbours which we wish to maintain. Fleckney School and the Police seek your cooperation in resolving this issue by requesting that parents park sensibly and with due consideration for other road users.
Please do not walk through the school car park with your children – cars or delivery vans/lorries could be entering or leaving the car park at any time of the school day.
We are always excited to hear from children about their pets, however, may we take this opportunity to remind families that dogs are not permitted on school premises, due to health and safety regulations. Please could you refrain from tying dogs to the school gates when picking up and dropping off your children. Whilst we appreciate it is a good time to walk your dogs, we have a number of children who are quite nervous moving past them, particularly when they are tied in an alleyway.
Similarly, we recognise that some children ride to school on scooters under parent supervision, this is a wonderful way to promote our ‘Healthy Schools’ status, although for the safety of all our pupils, may we remind you that they must not be ridden onto school grounds. Any scooters brought to school must be parked inside the gates and collected when you leave.
Finally, we request that school children and their siblings do not play on the climbing equipment before or after school.
As a number of our adults and children have severe allergies, we are a nut free school. We would therefore like to stress the importance of not sending any foods containing nuts or nut oil into school as they have the potential to cause a severe life threatening reaction. A person with a severe nut allergy does not need to eat a nut to experience an adverse reaction, simply being in an environment where nuts are being eaten by others can be sufficient to cause a dangerous reaction. All foods sent in for packed lunches should be checked to ensure that they do not contain nuts or nut oil. Nutella chocolate spread, or alternative brands, should not be used in sandwiches. Thank you for your help and support with this matter.
Asthma If you child has asthma or requires an inhaler for use in school, please ensure that our medical information about pupils is as complete, accurate and up to date as possible.
We are advised by Leicestershire County Council that where a pupil requires an inhaler for use in school: ‘
All medicines must be clearly labelled with the child's name, dose, frequency and the name of the medication’; and that: ‘Parents/guardians undertake to update the school with any changes in routine, use or dosage, or emergency medication, and to maintain an in date supply of the prescribed medication.’
We are committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere.
Ofsted Report 2012 'They (the children) show a keen understanding of different types of bullying, but they, as well as their parents and carers, say that no bullying of any kind is tolerated and that, if any were to occur, they are confident that teachers would take swift and appropriate action.'
Information Leaflets for parents provided by the police:
At Fleckney we believe that the internet is a great place to learn and should always be fun to use. We believe it is important to get the right messages across at this young age and esafety lessons cover all aspects of safely accessing the internet including the use of email and mobile technology.
