Here at Marsworth we think it is a vital part of our children’s education to visit and experience places that have a true educational value and purpose. We have recently visited the Tower of London, along with several music and sports festivals and activities. We always ensure that risk assessments are carried out and DBS checks are in place for people who come into contact with our children. Parents permission is always sought before taking children on such trips.
In the rare event of the school having to close unexpectedly in an emergency Bucks County Council has made arrangements for Mix 96 to broadcast emergency closure information. Parents are advised to tune into this station in bad weather conditions. They should also go to the Bucks County council website which lists all school closures.
Using a telephone cascade system staff will also advise parents of closure. Closure due to an emergency arising during the day would be dealt with by the school. Parents would be contacted and the children would be collected by their emergency contacts.
No child would be left to their own devices.
In order for closure procedures to be effective, all emergency contact numbers must be relevant.
TERM TIME ABSENCE
In 2013 the Department for Education statutory guidance on school attendance state that the Headteacher may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
We have carefully considered the guidance and adopted the recommendations in our School Attendance Policy, which is available for parents to read at the school office and on our website.
At Marsworth CE Infant School we aim to achieve a good attendance through working in partnership with staff, pupils, parents, governors and the Education Welfare Service.
We would recommend that parents discuss leave of absence requests due to exceptional circumstances with Mrs Polatci as any absences from school can result in children falling behind with their school work.
