Parent Information

What parents do is more important than who parents are:

At Corsham Regis all the staff place a very high emphasis on successfully engaging with parents and the wider community. We recognise that good communication is much more than simply exchanging information. It is through effective and interactive communication that understanding is developed and shared, and trust is built. Good communication promotes partnership.

Please explore the links below which have been added specifically to help you learn more about Corsham Regis and what you can do to support the early development of your children.

What is the policy for pupils with medical needs?

It is important that you tell us about any medical needs your child has when they start with us and that these are recorded on the admission form. If a medical condition is diagnosed when your child is already on roll, please tell us immediately.

Absence and holiday requests

Good attendance is important. Our target is for all pupils to achieve an attendance rate of at least 96%. For further information, or if you are considering taking a holiday during term time, please refer to the documents below which outline the procedure and consequences of unauthorised absence.

What our parents and carers say about us.

The Corsham Regis Local Governing Body annually survey parents and carers about their views on Corsham Regis and how it provides for our young pupils. Here is the analysis of results from the October 2019 survey.

What to do in the event of severe weather

In the event of severe weather (eg heavy snow), the  academy will make the decision to close when it is apparent that more than  5 teachers and more than  3 teaching assistants will be unable to travel safely to the school.  Consideration for closure will also be given to the safety of children making the trip to school in severe weather conditions. 

As soon as I have made the decision to close or amend opening arrangements for the school day, I will complete the following actions:

1. Post a notice on the Corsham Regis website

2. Post a notice on Seesaw

3. Post a notification on our Facebook page

4. Inform local radio stations

I will endeavour to update messages on a regular basis and keep you fully informed of developments.

Transfer to Secondary School

Corsham Regis Primary Academy is in the catchment area for The Corsham School (www.corshamschool.co.uk) and many of our children transfer to this school. Some parents choose to transfer their children to secondary schools in Chippenham or Bath.

Towards the end of their primary schooling, children have increased contact with secondary schools and during Year 6 children and parents have opportunities to visit their new school and meet key members of staff.

Accessibility

Our inclusion vision is for every pupil in our academy to achieve the most successful individual outcomes, educationally, socially, in their personal life, and within their local community, and for their unique needs to be recognised and met as early as possible.  Our Accessibility Plan intends to achieve this vision by empowering these children and young people to achieve all that they can.
