Twice a year a school photographer visits the school to take the children's photographs. Individual photographs and family groups are taken in the Autumn Term and preschool children are welcome to come along too. Class and team photographs are taken in the Summer Term. There is no obligation to purchase any photos.
It is inadvisable for your child to bring large amounts of money to school. Where this is unavoidable the money should be placed in a sealed, named envelope and given to a member of staff for safekeeping.
The school has one audited non-official fund. Money in this fund is generated by the school itself and is used for a variety of different things.
The governors have a charging and remissions policy which states that, subject to statutory restriction, voluntary charges will be made for all extra school visits requiring transport and admission fees, and for groups visiting the school. No child will be denied a curricular experience if their parents do not make a voluntary contribution. The school has very limited funds at its disposal to subsidise activities as outlined above and events may have to be cancelled if sufficient funds are not forthcoming.
Conduct at the School
While on the school site, we expect everyone to adhere to the policies set down by the Governing Body. Warboys Community Primary School is a no smoking site; this includes all the school grounds. All pupils and parents who cycle to school should dismount when on the school premises. This is for everybody’s safety including the young children who are around at the start and end of the day.
Finally, the school treats everybody with courtesy and respect and we expect to be treated the same. We will not tolerate any abusive language or behaviour towards any member of staff at any time.
We do not encourage pupils to bring mobile phones to school. If your child needs to bring a mobile phone to school it should be handed in to the school office at the beginning of the school day for safe-keeping. The mobile phone can then be collected at the end of the school day.
We will confiscate any mobile phone that is used by a pupil on the premises and ask for a parent to collect the phone. If children need to contact their parents during the school day, they should speak to their class teacher. The school does not accept any responsibility for any damage to, or loss of, a mobile phone.
