Benefits for Children at School

Many families miss out on education benefits (such as free school meals, uniform grants and journey grants), tax credits and social security benefits because they do not know they can claim. Please click on the links below to find out more about these benefits :

Parent Partnership

We welcome parents and carers into Boxgrove Primary School believing we are partners in the education of children. Co-operation between parents and teachers help children to do better in school. Parents' time and expertise can be used in many ways in school and is greatly valued.

We welcome your involvement as a volunteer, especially to hear readers and help on trips, or as a helper for our fund raising events. If you wish to work as a volunteer, then please see Ms Broughton.

How You Can Help Your Child

We want your child to be happy at school and achieve well. You can help this by:

> Making sure your child attends school regularly and on time

> Taking an interest in & talking to them about what they're learning

> Reading to and with them, helping them learn keywords, number bonds & times tables

> Making sure they do their homework

> Telling us when there are changes or a problem at home that might affect their behaviour or emotional state

> Listening to them & giving them strategies to deal with everyday situations which happen in schools

> Working with us to resolve problems

Absence and Holidays

If your child is absent through sickness please let us know on the day or as soon as possible either by phone or a brief written note.

As there are twelve weeks holiday in an academic year, the school does not authorise holidays during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

If you need to request leave, then you must collect a form from the school office. Permission will not be given if it is applied for after the visit or holiday has taken place.

The school must collect and report details of absences by law. Our school target for attendance is 95%. At Boxgrove we have a responsibility to work with the Local Authority to ensure that children attend school. We are required to inform the Local Authority if a pupil fails to attend or is late regularly and if no valid reason for absence is provided. The local authority prosecutes parents of pupils who are persistently late or absent.
