Parents should ensure that children do not arrive before 8.40am, as there is no supervision on the playground in the morning. The children have their own dedicated entrances, which only they should use, for security purposes.

Sickness/Tummy Bug: If your child has suffered a sickness or tummy bug, they should be clear of the symptoms for 48hrs before returning to school.
Other Illness: If you are unsure if your child should be kept off school, this website is very useful helping make the right decision http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Yourchildatschool/Pages/Illness.aspx
Prescription Medication: We are able to administer prescribed medication. Please bring medication to the school office and complete a consent form.
Bumped Head: If your child bumps their head during the school day, a Bumped Head Record Sheet will be sent home via their book bag.
Plasters: If a plaster has been applied at school, it is recommended this be removed and the cut/graze be cleaned at home the same day. If your child is allergic to the plasters used at school, could you please provide plasters suitable for your child. These will be stored in the school office.
Would you like your child to have subsidised milk at school?
Children under 5 years of age have a free serving of milk each day at school. Children who are eligible for benefit based free school meals, are also entitled to have a free serving of milk each day at school.
If your child is over 5 years of age, and is not eligible for benefit based free school meals, they can receive a subsidised serving of milk each day at school. Please register your child via the Cool Milk website:
Named water bottles must be provided by parents. Please make sure the water bottles contain only water. Squash can cause a real sticky mess if spilt !
Year R children will be given a book bag when they start in September. Children should bring their book bag into school everyday. Replacement book bags can be purchased from Skoolkit in Fareham.
Arrangements for Car Parking
If the children are brought to school by car then the car park at the rear of Titchfield Community Centre (entrance via Mill Street) should be used and the children can then come to and from school by use of the footpath. The lay-by on the A27 should not be used for dropping off or collecting children. Please do not use the staff car park for dropping off or collecting children, as this is used for those children who come by taxi.
Legislation changed in September 2013 on Leave of absence from school during term time for the purposes of a family holiday. Holiday will only be approved in exceptional circumstances.
Availability of Documents
Following the Freedom of Information Act, all school documents are available on request from the school office.
We expect that if you have any problems or complaints, these can be resolved through informal discussion with the class teacher or Headteacher. Should this not be the case, there is a formal procedure for the consideration of complaints which the Headteacher will explain to you.
