Useful Info For Parents

Behaviour at Sennen
 
At Sennen we believe that mistakes are a valuable teaching tool and can help us to learn to make better choices. Our school virtues provide us with a conversation tool kit to help guide the children in the right direction and reflect on what has gone well, and what we need to develop. We use praise and encouragement to support with children's self esteem and help them believe in themselves as valulable members of our school. We believe that children thrive on routine and consistency and so have created a behaviour policy that is clear and easy to understand. 
 
Wrap around care
In the next academic year, we will be continuing to offer our wrap around care to our families. The breakfast and after school clubs will take place in the school and be staffed by existing members of the staff team. There will be a range of activities on offer that will make use of the schools resources both inside and out. During breakfast club, the children will be able to have cereal or fruit to give them a healthy start to the day. The provision will be open to all Sennen School children. As this is an extension of school hours the school is required to charge for its use in order to cover the costs of providing it.

Breakfast club will run from 7:45am – 8:45am. Parents can drop off at any time and children do not have to eat. These options are reflected in the pricing structure below. After school club will run from 3:15-5:30 and there will be a snack included during each session. Children who attend an after school enrichment club, such as football, can then join the club once finished. Pricing structure again reflects these options.

Uniform
At Sennen we want children to feel proud of their identity. We are a wonderful school and want to be recognised as such. We believe that our high standards promote positive behaviour, support effective teaching and learning and contribute to the ethos of the school.

Most of the uniform is easy to purchase from major supermarkets and items that have a logo on can be ordered direct from the supplier, using this link:
