Our affordable and stylish uniform has been designed by top fashion designer Ozwald Boateng following the input of some of School 21’s ﬁrst students. We want all children to wear our uniform with pride at all times, including to and from school. The most visible sign to the community of what School 21 is like is how your child behaves in their uniform.
We ask you to support us in ensuring that your child looks smart in their uniform every morning. Please write your child’s name on all items of clothing to ensure that they do not get lost. Please make sure that your child wears sensible ﬂat black shoes at all times.
The School 21 uniform can be purchased from Fashion Stop, 138 High Street North, Upton Park, London, E6 2HT (telephone: 0208 552 3200). Please contact the school office for further details of how to buy the uniform.
If your child becomes ill or injured during the school day and is not well enough to stay in class, you will be called to pick your child up. Please ensure that the school ofﬁce has up-to-date emergency contact numbers in case no one can be contacted at home.
If a child needs to take medicine at school, parents must have completed the necessary consent forms for administration of medicine in school - these can be found and submitted in the school office. In some cases, parents/carers may be asked to meet with Ms Jones to discuss arrangements for the administration of medication. Medicine needs to be in its original packaging.
Students with asthma should bring an inhaler, prescribed by their doctor, to school each day. It is also advisable to meet with Ms. Jones in order to complete an Asthma Registration card as well as hand over a spare inhaler to be kept in the school ofﬁce at all times. Asthmatic students should notify a member of staff if at any time breathing becomes difﬁcult.
Home - School Commitment
Parents and School 21
We want to build a partnership with parents that lasts from when children arrive in Reception to when they leave at 18.
We value the views, expertise and support of parents. Success at School 21 will come from how well we work with the children, parents and the community.
At School 21, we want to make the transition to our school as smooth as possible for your child. Therefore we feel that it is crucial that you and your child are given the opportunity to get to know your class teacher before starting at a pre-arranged home visit.
The home visits will give the teacher time to talk about procedures and answer any queries that you may have. Also to give you the opportunity to share information that you feel is important about your child. Your child’s class teacher will also collect the ‘All About Me’ booklet that was issued at the information evening.
Home School Folder and Reading Books
Your child will be given a home work book. This will include simple activities each week for you to do with your child at home. Children will be given the opportunity to choose and change their reading book regularly and this should be read every night. Homework will also be given and this will be explained at the Curriculum Parents’ Evening in the autumn term.
One of the keys to the success of School 21 is the strong working relationship between parents, teachers and children. The key to this is constant communication. It is for this reason that we have an open door policy and recognise the need for regular communication between home and school.
All of our families are welcome to visit the school in addition to any telephone conversations that you may have with members of staff.
Our staff have regular parents’ evenings involving parents, children and teachers.
