What do I do if my child is late to school?

Please enter through the main entrance, here you will be asked to sign your child in.

What do I do if I am late to collect my child?

Please phone and let the office staff know as soon as possible.

Are there any items not allowed in a packed lunch?

Yes, we do not allow any nut products in school due to children with allergies. (This includes chocolate nut spread e.g. Nutella). We are a healthy school, and encourage fruits, vegetables and healthy snacks. Please do not send your child with sweets or fizzy drinks.

How do I find out about my child’s progress in their education?

Your child’s class teacher will regularly update you regarding your child’s progress. At Grenoside, we deliver parents evening, communicate through Google Classroom and hold workshops to inform parents about the lessons delivered at school. Please ask to speak to your child’s class teacher if you are concerned about your child’s progress
