WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IF MY CHILD NEEDS TO FAST DURING THE SCHOOL DAY?
For Fasting/Ramadam - Parents need to give written permission to the school office, if they want their children to fast during Ramadan. Please specify the child's name, class, & on which days this will be happening. Then sign and date the letter. Without confirmation we will be feeding the children. If fasting, please provide your child with water and a healthy snack should they become ill or decide they wish to stop the fast.
how do i make a complaint?
At Fairlight Primary & Nursery School, we work very hard to maintain positive relationships and communications with all members of the community. From time to time, however, we recognise that parents may be unhappy. Therefore, we would advise that they follow the correct procedures of contacting the class teacher, then a senior member of staff and then the headteacher to outline their concerns.
If after this, parents still feel unhappy they should then follow the schools complaints procedures. While parents may feel they want to complain to OFSTED or to the local paper, this will not resolve their concerns any quicker and easier, and their communication will be redirected to the schools complaints procedures - a copy of which can be obtained on request from the school office wither by email or a paper copy can be provided.
