What clubs are on offer and will the club be on today?

 

We try to offer a full range of clubs in our school. The list can be seen using this link. http://www.farnboroughroadjuniors.co.uk/after-school-clubs/

 

If we have to cancel a club we will make contact by text as soon as we know, usually at least ONE DAY before. If a club has to be cancelled because of poor weather we will also contact you by text and we will make sure that your child is kept safe in school.

Can I speak to my child's teacher?

 

We try to make staff available as much as possible, but teachers are busy people! Staff are not usually available before school, but are often able to see parents after school. Senior staff are on the doors in the morning if you have an urgent message that needs to get into school.

 

If you can't make it into school, we have lots of other ways of making contact. These are listed on this link:-

My child has lost their letter/newsletter. Can I have another copy?

 

We post all letters on our website. Most of our letters are now sent home via email as this is a reliable way of making sure that they get to parents. We still provide paper copies of some letters, mostly when there is a tear-off slip required.

 

You can find our newsletters at http://www.farnboroughroadjuniors.co.uk/stream/newsletters/full/1/-//

and our normal letters at http://www.farnboroughroadjuniors.co.uk/letters/

When is my child swimming?

 

Our swimming timetable can be found below. we go to 'Swimscool' in Marshside so the second group are back late at the end of the day. This timetable goes up to the middle part of the spring term and is subject to change.

 

 

What can my child eat at school?

 

We offer a very flexible lunch system that allows children to swap between a school meal and a packed lunch on a daily basis. We have a tasty set menu, with meals all cooked in our own kitchen. The latest menu can be found on this link http://www.farnboroughroadjuniors.co.uk/important-information-for-parents/
