After school clubs
Four Swannes runs many after school clubs which change throughout the year. We also have Chexs coming to the school to run parent and child clubs Please read the many newsletters sent home with your child to see which clubs your child would like to attend. Also, you can enquire at the School Office, staff will be ony too happy to help. Four Swannes also run a football team and an athletic team and a school choir, there is great competition for these clubs, so applications must be in early to endeavour to avoid disappointment.
Should you wish to lodge a complaint, please arrange an appointment to speak to a member of staff with the office if possible. Teaching staff are not always available during the day, but an appointment before or after school is advisable. The Deputy Head will always try to see you should the Class Teacher not be available or you have an urgent problem which needs discussion.
Snow and bad weather
In the event of bad weather or that the school should have a need to close for a period of time unexpectedly, the parents will be notified by the school Texting message system. It is therefore paramount that you keep the office staff informed of your up to date telephone number and change of address.
