We have a newsletter from our Headteacher, Mr Hudson which goes out every 2 weeks. The newsletter incorporates ‘key dates’ and information relating to news and events that are happening at school.
All correspondence is sent to you by email. Please ensure the school office has your current email address.
We have a text messaging service which is used to pass on various information including events and reminders.
If your child’s class is taking part in a school trip/event, an information letter will be sent to you by e mail giving details of the venue, cost, arrangements for the day etc. Parental consent must be given for school trips. Please ensure you follow the instructions on your letter regarding how consent should be given. Your child will not be able to participate without your permission and will remain in school.
If we have any changes to the days events ie an after school club has to be cancelled or school closed due to snow, we will send a text message as early as possible.
If your child bumps their head and it is not serious, a text will be sent to you for information only. You do not need to ring the school. If the injury is more serious you will be contacted immediately. We will also contact you by telephone if your child becomes unwell during the day or they injure themselves.
Keeping us informed
If you change your contact details, mobile phone numbers or e mail address please contact Rachel de la Fuente who will update your information on our system. It is imperative that we have correct telephone numbers and e mail addresses to keep you informed and also in the event of an emergency.
We are a cashless school which means all payments for school meals, breakfast and tea time clubs, extra clubs and school trips is paid online via our Parentpay system. You will be given a username and password when you child joins Merryhills. We no longer take cheques or cash.
