Yes, your child can cycle to and from school if they are accompanied by an adult or if you give them permission to cycle alone or with friends.

We have a bike rack available outside the school office. 

All bicycles are left at own risk and we recommend using a bike lock. We are unable to provide bike locks.

We only allow Year 5 and Year 6 children to walk to and from school without a grown up.

If you wish for your Y5/6 child to walk to school alone we do need a permission letter from somebody with parental responsibility. The information will be held on their data collection sheet for reference.

We always promote healthy eating and encourage our parents to make healthy choices when putting together a packed lunch for their child.

Please be aware that we are a NUT AWARE school. Our kitchen is nut free and we ask that parents do not include nuts in packed lunches. This is monitored by staff, who are allergen trained. 

If you require further information or advice, please contact our school office.

We ask that parents should label all clothing that comes into school. If an item goes missing, your child must inform their class teacher and teaching assistant and also look in the lost property box.

Parents can ask the school office to send out a text to help to find the item, but we are unable to replace any missing pieces.

We also run after school club, which is until either 4:15pm or 5:15pm. 

Frodsham Primary Academy Parent School Association (PSA) is an organisation set up to support the school in a variety of ways. We help with supporting children's activities and we raise funds to allow the children to have access to "extras".

We can always use the support of extra volunteers and would welcome new members with new ideas and contacts.

Each year we operate parents evenings, which gives parents and teachers time to discuss progress and learning.

These can be either in house or via telephone. More information is shared with families on the run up to the events.

Due to our geographical location, our Year 6 pupils will move to various secondary schools across the area.

Helsby High School is our main feeder secondary school.

Usually children join Reception class in the September before their 5th birthday.

We do not allow toys in school, unless the class teacher has specifically asked their class to bring something in. Please always check with them.

Newsletters go out via text bit link each week and are also uploaded to our school website here.

We would discourage parents from trying to talk to a teacher in the morning as they are busy preparing for the school day.

We would advise you to speak to the teacher at the end of the school day after all the children have been dismissed.

We can also make appointments in the school office for parents to see the class teacher or another member of staff.
