Collecting Pupils from School.

All parents must follow the procedure of informing the office if you arrange for someone other than yourself or an agreed contact to collect your child from school, especially if the person collecting your child is not known to the school.

 As a school we will be prepared to keep a child with us if we have not received notification of them being collected by someone else.  We will try and call you to check, but this causes frustration and inconvenience. Please understand that we do this in the best interest of your child.

Young Carers

Young Carers are people aged between 5-18 years of age who have a responsibility or help someone with day to day needs. It may be as simple as talking and listening to them when they are sad or helping out in the family home.

If you think your child/children could be a young carer, please speak to Miss Gibson or Mrs Sweeten to discuss further or visit http://www.youngcarerscoventry.co.uk

 

E-Safety

The internet is a fantastic place to find information, be entertained and catch up with friends and family. At St Barts we are teaching the children how to be safe online so that they can feel safe offline. Below are links to some great resources for children and parents, with top tips and friendly advice.

 

Thinkuknow is an excellent resource for parents and children to learn how to be safe online, as well as a place to seek advice and help.
