Attendance

We are aware that issues arise which prevent punctual end of day collections e.g. a medical emergency, transportation failure, road accidents causing a build up in traffic etc.  We make every effort to support parents and carers through our 'late room' provision with Mrs Louca in the welfare room.   Persistent late collections however, are not tolerated and will incur a charge where this occurs on more than three occasions within any half term.  Please see the downloadable example of a letter requesting payment where there has been a record of three or more late collections within a half term.

We strongly urge parents and carers who are experiencing difficulties in start and end of day routines to consider the wide range of affordable Breakfast and After School Actitivities Wembley Primary School provides to ensure that children are not affected by any loss in their learning, and no avoidable charges are issued.

 

Central to raising standards in education, and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated - pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education.  Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind.  Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.

Children are requested to arrive at school on time. The gates open at 8.35am.  Registration takes place promptly at 8.50am. Children who arrive after 8.50am are considered late for school.  Parents who are frequently late will be requested to meet with a member of the Senior Leadership Team to discuss the problem.

Children must attend school for 190 days and staff for 195 days. As a result, there will be five in-service training day closures. 
When dropping off or collecting your child please drive safely and park considerately.  The staff car park is strictly for authorised users only, delivery vehicles and emergency vehicles. 

A good record of attendance and punctuality are important aspects of a successful school life at Wembley Primary School.  For the majority of our families this is common place.  However, there is a small minority who fail to ensure that children are in school, and collected at the end of the day, on time.
 

Online Safety



For more information about keeping your child safe from online dangers, and to support your child's e-safety awareness and digital literacy skills visit ThinkuKnow and read the Digital Parenting Magazine was sent out to all parent, an online copy can be found here http://vodafonedigitalparenting.co.uk/   Please see our Policies page for a copy of our Online Safety Policy, including copies of our AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) Agreements for pupils.

You can also click on the download icon to view a copy of Wembley Primary School's Online Safety Meeting Powerpoint.

Many parents and carers find it difficult to advise their children how to stay safe on the Internet and when using mobile phones.  Chat rooms, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram (to name a few) are all attractive and familiar to young people, but they often lack the maturity to recognise that feeling safe is not the same as being safe.  

At Wembley Primary School all staff, children and members of our school community participate in annual online safety training.  Children understand and must agree to the school's acceptable use of technology rules each time they login to a laptop or desktop PC.  This is again reinforced each time children use technology, as they are reminded of the SMART rules, recommended by ChildLine and KIDSmart.

 

Parent View and Partnership

Wembley Primary School parents and carers can give Ofsted their views of our school at any time of the year using an online questionnaire called Parent View. Your views are really important in helping inspectors form a judgement about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved. Please register at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.

Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions on a variety of aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching and level of homework.
If you do not have a computer or an email address, or if you would like help to use Parent View, please do get in touch with us.

Wembley Primary School is always seeking ways within which we can strengthen our partnership with parents and carers in order to heighten progress, attainment and achievements of our children, as well as to build relationships as a community. We invite parents into school for a variety of events, including concerts, presentations, workshops, coffee mornings and to help our in class and on trips.

School Meals

Lunch is a time children enjoy together – whether a packed lunch or a school dinner. School dinners are cooked daily on site in our school kitchen. All our meals meet Government standards and are nutritionally analysed. The menu changes termly and is posted on the notice board as well as in this area of the website. We are pleased to announce that meat and vegetarian alternatives will be provided every day.

All children in Reception, Y1 and Y2 are entitled to a free school meal. Pupils in Y3, 4, 5 and 6 requiring a school dinner may pay using Parent Pay.  If you think that your child is eligible for free school meals, please apply online at https://www.myfreeschoolmeals.com/

Packed lunches may also be brought – but no glass containers please. It is also extremely helpful if the lunch box is named.
