Shay Lane Primary School


Dear Parents

Please use the drop down menu to access further information available on this page.

Communication with Parents

It has become apparent over the past few weeks that some of our contact details for parents are out of date as mobile phone numbers have changed etc. We have also been made aware that some parents do not answer their phones if they receive a call from a withheld number.

For us to be able to communicate effectively with parents it is essential that the contact details for your children are up to date, and we have more than one emergency contact number. Therefore please ensure you inform school of any changes to mobile telephone numbers etc.

In line with all Wakefield schools our number displays as a withheld number. We ask that parents do not ignore these calls as we may be trying to contact you as a matter of some urgency.

Could I also remind parents that we not only send home letters regarding up-coming events, we also post information on our website. If your child has been off school ill or absent for any reason please check with their class teacher to see if any letters have been given out during their absence. Alternatively check our website where letters are posted which you are able to access and print. Copies of letters and our Newsletters are also available from outside the main school office.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Free School Milk

As from 1st January 2015 all children whose parents are in receipt of benefits which would entitle them to Free School Meals, will also be entitled to Free School Milk.

If you are unsure as to whether you fall into this catagory, please do not hesitate to call into school where a member of the "Admin Staff" will be happy to assist.
