If for any reason your child cannot wear an item of school uniform e.g. shoes, please send a note in explaining why to the class teacher. Finally, necklaces, bracelets, rings, make-up and nail varnish should not be worn in school. The exception is where a child has pierced ears, in which case stud-type earrings should be worn in school.

At St Andrew's Junior School we take E-safety very seriously. We recognise that the internet opens up a wealth of learning opportunities for children and that is an enormous resource for all. At the same time we are aware of the danger the internet poses to our children. During their time at St Andrew's children receive lessons on E-Safety as an integral part of their ICT and PSHE curriculum. At home we encourage parents to take care to protect their home computers and those who use them. It is also important to realise the ever increasing multimedia platforms from which the internet can be accessed such as mobile phones and games consoles.
