School Gateway - in conjunction with the letters sent home last week with your child regarding improvements to our home/school communications and our new biometric payment system, we have created a new section heading - located on our website home page. Please visit this section, which includes a link to Astley Community High School, for further information. Thank you.

Children in Need - Friday 17th November 2017.

In an effort to support Children in Need, pupils will be allowed to come to school in non-uniform next Friday, for a suggested £1 donation. Cake stalls will be available on the day (cake donations may be made from Thursday 16th November.)

Christmas Fair 2017

We always request tombola donations on the Friday before the Christmas Fair with the offer of a non-uniform day for the children. Our apologies that this year it clashes with Children in Need. Please see our letter regarding the Christmas Fair and tombola donations by following the link ' Letters'above then 'letters to parents 2017-2018','Christmas Fair.'

We appreciate the fantastic support given by our pupils, parents and carers and thank you in advance for the double effort requested next Friday.


Pupils who attend after school clubs and are taken home by taxi will be dropped off in their home street. This is our normal procedure when it's dark before pupils leave school.

On Monday 16th October the old style £1 coin was removed from general circulation. As a result of this we can no longer accept them in school. Thank you.

If your child needs to take any medication (prescription/over the counter), please call in to the school office and complete our medication dispensing form BEFORE sending any treatment in with your child. ALL medication (including inhalers) should be clearly labelled with your child's name AND within its expiry date.

Under certain circumstances it may be necessary to contact you urgently to pass on information about your child or an incident within school. It is therefore essential that we have the most up to date contact details available for our parents, carers, or nominated 'first contact'. If you have changed your contact details since July 2017 and you think we may have not been informed, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make any necessary amendments. A copy of our pupil data sheet is available on our website under Parent Information - Forms, should you wish to print it off and send it in to school with your child.

We have also had an increase in the amount of unclaimed lost property, most of which is not named. This makes it more difficult to reunite items with their owners. Could you please ensure that all items of uniform, including P.E. kit, are clearly marked with your child's name.

If your child is absent from school at any time, please ask them to come to the office on their return for a copy of any letters they may have missed. Thank you.
