GOLDEN RULES


Our rules are called BEES and are publicised throughout the school. The BEES were devised by the pupils and are based on our school values.


There are five BEES.




  1. BE A GOOD LISTENER

  2. BE KIND AND HELPFUL

  3. BE HONEST

  4. BE GENTLE, LOOK AFTER PROPERTY

  5. BE A HARD WORKER

Keeping the BEES entitles pupils to GOLDEN TIME, every Friday, which is half an hour of free time for pupils to participate in ‘golden’ activities- this could be baking, computing, playing football or even having tea with the Headteacher! Each class has a golden news box and individual pupils and classes receive praise notes for publication and acknowledgement in the class scrap book. Everyone in the school community is encouraged to send praise notes when good manners, behaviour or effort has been observed.


All classrooms have an achievement wall where pupils’ photographs, certificates, awards can be displayed. All teachers have their own systems of awards such as points, certificates and tokens -these are important ways of letting pupils know that we value their cooperation. Because pupils take them home parents also become aware of their child’s good behaviour.

Classroom Discipline


This is the responsibility of individual class teachers. A positive approach by the teacher helps to foster good relationships. Class rules are made for health and safety reasons and to maximise the effectiveness of teaching within the school. Class rules are devised in consultation with pupils. When children know why a rule has been made, they are more likely to obey the rule as they understand the reason for it. The majority of children find our rules acceptable. These children are encouraged by praise for their efforts or achievement and are used as a model for others to follow. The teacher’s behaviour should also be an example for the children to follow.

Where this is not successful and individual children begin to show cause for concern, the class teacher will use a sting (a picture of an angry wasp) as a visual warning to the child that his/her behaviour or attitude is not appropriate. If the behaviour does not improve then the pupil will have Golden Time deducted (in five minute blocks). The amount of time lost depends on the seriousness of the behaviour. Should misbehaviour continue or escalate we would contact parents and ask for their help in developing acceptable standards of conduct and behaviour. Pupils who by Friday have not been able to regain their Golden time (through a contract with their teacher) observe their peers enjoying Golden Time and join in once their lost time is repaid.

Incidents of playground aggression mean an automatic deduction of Golden Time and the lost time is never allowed to be’ bought’ back.
Bullying

The school appreciates and share the concerns of parents regarding preventing bullying. Pupils, staff and parents worked together to produce a policy that ensures that Battlefield primary strives to be a bully free zone. A copy of our policy statement for parents is included as an appendix. Each session we have a whole school anti bullying week to highlight and reinforce school policy.


PLAYGROUND -Discipline

An adult presence is provided in playgrounds at breaktimes in terms of the Schools (Safety and Supervision of Pupils)(Scotland) Regulations, 1990. In addition our support staff help to promote play within the playground. These staff members wear highly visible bright yellow jackets.

Various toys and equipment have been purchased to enhance playground play.
PLAYGROUND- Parental access

In response to guidance from the Health and Safety team on our ‘reasonable duty of care’ the school management recognises the need to keep the school playground adult free except for official school supervising adults. No parents /carers should into the playground before 9.10am and between 2.55pm and 3.10pm. We provide an adult presence in the playground from 8.45am and advise that you do not send your child to school before this time unless he/she attends breakfast club.

PROCEDURES FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL DAY

All children will enter the school building through the middle gate (A) opposite the school main door and office. All children line up at the front of the school and are dismissed from the two front doors .


PARENT/ TEACHER COMMUNICATION

It is important to all staff that as parents/ carers you feel confidence that you are able to communicate with staff, and that your enquiries are dealt with promptly and sensitively.

At 9am a class teacher’s priority is to escort his/ her class indoors and help them settle into their school day. If you need to pass a message to a class teacher please use one of the established methods listed below or if none of these methods are appropriate please come to the school office from 9.10am onwards where a member of staff will be happy to help you.


  • Use homework diaries to pass on simple messages or points of information.

eg. We have mislaid a reading book.

  • Write the teacher a note to detail more important or private information.

eg. My child has a current medical issue.

  • Approach or phone a member of the Senior Management Team from 8.40 a.m.

onwards for an immediate response to an area of serious concern.

eg. An alleged racist or bullying incident.



  • Write to the CLASS TEACHER requesting an additional interview. This will be organised for you at your earliest convenience.

eg. My child is anxious about aspects of schoolwork.

Contact the Head Teacher at any time of family crisis.


PROCEDURES FOR THE END OF THE SCHOOL DAY

At dismissal time senior classes exit through gate (B) opposite their entrance- this gate will only be opened between 3pm and 3.10pm to allow swifter exiting and reduce congestion. All pupils in Primary One, Two and Three exit through the school main gate. Infant pupils will be escorted by their teachers into the playground. Staff will remain with their class until parent contact is confirmed. We recognise that parents of infant pupils especially could be concerned about congestion at gates and ask all parents/ carers to give increased thought and consideration to



  1. arriving at school in reasonable time for the 3pm dismissal.

  2. decreasing congestion by not loitering on the pavement once you have collected your child

  3. parking with increased consideration for pedestrians and other car users

  4. ensuring younger siblings are monitored closely within a busy waiting area.


PROCEDURES FOR ALL OTHER TIMES OF THE SCHOOL DAY- ( EXCEPTION PLAYTIMES AND LUNCHTIMES WHEN SCHOOL GATES ARE ALL LOCKED)

All pupils, staff, parents and visitors enter by the same gate- the middle gate (A) opposite the main door to the school.


Exceptions:-

  1. At the start of session pupils in Primary One are dismissed at 12.15 until the September weekend. Parents/ carers of Primary One pupils will be allowed to wait in the playground at the school fence, directly opposite the school’s main door to collect their child(ren) from class teachers.

  2. BREAKFAST CLUB Parents/ carers escorting pupils to the school’s back door- ( entrance to Breakfast Club) can do so between 8.15 and 8.30am. Thereafter pupils should make their own way round the building. Parents should enter and leave by the middle gate (A).

  3. CLUBS Parents/ Carers collecting pupils from afterschool clubs should normally wait outside the school main gate.

  4. AFTERSCHOOL Parents/ Carers collecting pupils from AFTERSCHOOL should enter and leave the school by the middle gate (A). No child can be collected until 3.10pm


CLOTHING AND UNIFORM

Given that there is substantial parental/carer and public approval of a dress code, schools in this authority are encouraged to develop a school dress code. In encouraging a dress code policy, account must be taken in any proposals to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender. Any proposals will be the subject of widespread consultation with parents/carers and children and young people. Against this background it should be noted that it is the policy of the Education and Social Work Services Committee to encourage schools to develop an appropriate dress code policy.

There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:


  • potentially encourage faction (such as football colours);

  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans);

  • could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings;

  • are made from flammable material for example shell suits in practical classes;

  • could cause damage to flooring;

  • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco; and

  • could be used to inflict damage on other children and young people or be used by others to do so.

Under no circumstances will children and young people be deprived of any educational benefit as a result of not wearing clothing conforming to the school’s dress code policy.


Uniforms are available for sale in school. For convenience the school also has supplies of the school tie.
Parents/Carers receiving Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (Income Based) Working Tax Credit (with a total annual income of less than £15,050*), Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit will normally be entitled to monetary grants for footwear and clothing for their child or young person. Approval of any requests for such grants made by parents/carers in different circumstances is at the discretion of the Executive Director: Education and Social Work Services. Information and application forms may be obtained from schools and from Grants Section at Education and Social Work Services headquarters.
Glasgow City Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the loss of children’s and young peoples’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents/Carers are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing are not brought to school. Parents/Carers should note that the authority does not carry insurance to cover the loss of such items and any claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent.

KIT FOR PE LESSONS


For both boys and girls the kit consists of:

gym shoes and socks

shorts or joggers

T-shirt or polo shirt

In the interests of health and safety no jewellery should be worn in PE lessons. Children currently participate in PE twice a week. These sessions are time tabled ... please try to ensure that a household routine is established where you encourage your child to bring with him or her the appropriate clothing on the appropriate day. Thank you.

Many of our pupils elect to have their ears pierced as they become more fashion conscious. Please do not have this procedure ‘done’ during school term time- your child will not be allowed to participate in gym for 6 weeks until her/his ears have healed

MEALS

A FUEL ZONE cafeteria system is in operation and pupils pay for their meals on a daily basis. The choices range from a healthy sandwich to a variety of more substantial hot meals. Prepared cartons of fresh fruit and vegetables, yoghurts, fruit juice, flavoured water and milk are all also available.

Any pupil with a medical condition requiring a special diet can have this provided. A medical certificate should be provided from the pupil’s own doctor or the school doctor. I will send this certificate to the Education Offices and a special diet is then arranged.

Children and young people of parents/carers receiving Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (Income Based) and Child Tax Credit only (where income is less than £15,575*) are entitled to a free midday meal. Information and application forms for free school meals may be obtained from schools and from Grants Section at Education and Social Work Services headquarters.

All pupils are entitled to free milk and can select from the following flavours- plain, chocolate and strawberry. Pupils who wish to bring a packed lunch are accommodated in the dining halls.


N.B. Parents/Carers who are in receipt of Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit are not entitled to a free midday meal.

* Income amount effective from 1 April 2008 and may be changed by the Department for Work and Pensions.


We encourage all parents/carers who can to apply for free school meals as additional school funding can be awarded where schools have high levels of applications.
We have an active and successful staff/pupil nutrition group who proactively address pupil and staff suggestions for improving meals and service

TRANSPORT


The Education Authority has a policy of providing free transport to all primary children who live more than one mile from their local school by the recognised shortest walking route. This policy is more generous than the law requires. This means that the provision of transport could be reviewed at any time. Parents/Carers who consider they are eligible, should obtain an application form from the school or Education and Social Work Services. These forms should be completed and returned before the end of February for those children and young people beginning school in August to enable the appropriate arrangements to be made.

Applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year but may be subject to delay whilst arrangements are made. The appropriate officer has discretion in special circumstances to grant permission for children and young people to travel in transport provided by the authority, where spare places are available and no additional costs are incurred.

The authority has an Exceptional Circumstances policy relating to e.g. homelessness, parental/carer disability etc. Details are available from the school. There is also a procedure to request transport on medical grounds. The school can advise on procedures.

In the front playground the school has cycle racks for pupil and staff to use. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that his/her cycle is secured safely.

There is an active school travel team who encourage all pupils and staff to adopt safe and healthy route options to school. In recognition of concerns regarding dangerous parking outside the school gates the school and Parent Council are leading initiatives to raise awareness and seek practical solutions.

Pick-up Points


Where free transport is provided it may be necessary for children and young people to walk a certain distance to the vehicle pick-up point. Walking distance in total, including the distance from home to the pick-up point and from the drop-off point to the school in any one direction, will not exceed the authority’s limits (see above paragraph). It is the parent’s/carer’s responsibility to ensure that their child or young person arrives at the pick-up point in time. It is also the parent’s/carer’s responsibility to ensure the child or young person behaves in a safe and acceptable manner while boarding, travelling in and alighting from the vehicle. Misbehaviour could result in your child or young person losing the right to free transport.

Placing Requests


The education authority does not provide transport for those children or young people in receipt of a placing request other than in individual exceptional circumstances and where appropriate legislation applies.

In the case of under-age placing requests, if the child is offered a place in his / her catchment area school, transport will be provided in accordance with council policy stated above.


Medical and Health Care

Routine medical examinations are offered only to selected children. The selection process involves a questionnaire and letter to the parents/ guardian of all entrant infants. Pupils who have no problems and have preschool surveillance by their GP or local Child Health Clinic will not be offered a medical examination on starting school. Medical examinations will be offered to children who have not had preschool medicals; or who appear to have a problem likely to affect their education; or whose parent/guardian request an appointment.

*A hearing test is carried out for all children only if required

*All Primary One pupils will be offered a screening test of vision. This will be carried out by the school nurse. Vision tests will also be offered to children in Primaries 4 and 7.

*Height and weight is monitored at P1 and P4 and at other times if required.

* In preparation for transition to Secondary School Primary 7 pupils are given a Health Interview


NB Children attending external dental examinations in school hours must be collected from school by parents or another adult.
Emergency contact forms are issued to each child at the beginning of the school session. Information regarding the name, address and telephone number of an emergency contact is necessary. We need this information in case your child takes ill at school and you, yourself, are unable to be contacted.
Please inform the school of any change in emergency contact data as soon as a change occurs.
The school must be informed of ay special medication prescribed for any child attending the school. This is especially important with illnesses such as asthma or epilepsy. Should your child be required to take medicine during the school day you must complete a parental request form for administration of medicine. The medicine will be stored in the cupboard set aside for this purpose in the school office.
Included for your information, as an appendix in this handbook, is a copy of the City Council’s Child Safety circular/ Child Protection policy.
INFORMATION IN EMERGENCIES

We make every effort to maintain a full educational service, but on some occasions circumstances arise which lead to disruption. Schools may be affected by, for example, severe weather, and temporary interruption of transport, power failures or difficulties of fuel supply. In such cases we shall do all we can to let you know about the details of closure or re-opening. We shall keep you informed by using letters, notices in local shops and community centres, announcements in local places of worship and announcements in the press and on local radio.


Transfer from Primary school to Secondary School

Children and young people are normally transferred between the ages of 11 and a half and 12 and a half so that they will have the opportunity to complete at least four years of secondary education. Parents and carers will be informed of the school arrangements no later than December of the year preceding the date of transfer at the start of the new session.

The school to which pupils normally transfer is:-

SHAWLANDS ACADEMY

31 MOSS-SIDE ROAD

GLASGOW G41 3TR tele 0141 582 0210
We are part of the SHAWLAND’S ACADEMY Learning Community. The other associated schools in the Learning Community are

ANNETTE ST Primary, BLACKFRIARS Primary, CUTHBERTSON Primary, LANGSIDE Primary, SHAWLANDS Primary, VICTORIA Primary, DEANPARK Nursery, LANGSIDE Nursery and GOVANHILL Nursery. We also have a link with HOLLYBROOK School.

The Learning Community Business Manager is FIONA FERGUSON.
A summary of the Learning Community’s development plan is provided as Appendix 1
Shawlands Academy holds a meeting for prospective parents in the Autumn term. This meeting is open to any parent of a child in Primary 6 or 7 and gives interested parents the chance to meet Mrs Ann Grant, the Headteacher. Many of the school staff are also available at this meeting and parents and child can view the building and facilities. This meeting is an opportunity to hear about school routines and curriculum. Parents have the opportunity to ask questions about anything which may concern them about their child’s transfer to Secondary school. Procedures for placing requests are also explained at this meeting.

All primary seven pupils and their teachers attend the Academy for a morning visit in term 2. We have found that this experience helps allay pupils’ fears about changing school.


Regular consultation takes place throughout the session with Mr George Smith, Depute Head Teacher, who is responsible for S1 and S2 at the Academy.
During the summer term, prior to transfer, a guidance teacher from the Academy visits the Primary 7 classes so that he/she can get to know pupils and any problems they may have, before transfer to secondary. Learning support teachers also visit our classes to work alongside pupils in various curricular areas. In the summer term pupils spend two days at the Academy in their S1 class groups following a typical timetable.
The Parent Forum and the Parent Council

The Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 has changed the arrangements for parental representation in all schools. Since August 2007, all parents/carers are automatically members of the Parent Forum for their school and they have a right to establish a Parent Council to represent them. The membership of the Parent Forum is made up of all parents/carers who have a child or young person at an education authority school. Membership of the Parent Forum allows parents/carers to have a say in the local arrangements to enable their collective view to be represented on matters such as the quality and standards of education at the school and other matters of interest to parents/carers. One of the ways parents in the Parent Forum will be able to express their views will be through the Parent Council.


Parent Council

The Parent Council is a group of parents/carers selected by members of the Parent Forum to represent all the parents/carers of children and young people at the school. Parent Councils are very flexible groups and the Parent Forum can decide on the type of group it wants to represent their views. A Parent Council could get involved in:

Supporting the work of the school; Gathering and representing parents’ views to the Headteacher, education authority and HMIe; Promoting contact between the school, parents/carers, children and young people and the local community; Fundraising; Involvement in the appointment of senior school staff.
Parent Councils are recognised in law from August 2007. As a statutory body, the Parent Council has the right to information and advice on matters which affect children and young people’s education. So, the school and the local authority must listen to what the Parent Council says and give it a proper response. Every school’s Parent Council will be different because it will be parents/carers in each school who make the key decisions. The Parent Council is also entitled to support from the education authority in fulfilling its role.

Battlefield Primary has an established Parent Council to help in its consultation with parents, to promote home/school links and for fundraising support.

A copy of the Parent Council Constitution is available on request and the Parent Council will keep parents updated each year.

TACKLING RACIST INCIDENTS WTHIN THE EDUCATION SERVICE

The Race Relation Act of 1976 makes it unlawful to discriminate against someone because of her/his colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national background. The Act makes it the duty of Glasgow City Council to eliminate unlawful racial discrimination. In 1999 the guidelines, ‘Dealing with Racial Harassment’ were issued to assist all teaching staff in dealing with such incidents. The adoption of an anti-racist approach should be seen as one part of the continuing attempt to improve the quality of education. Glasgow City Council recognises the support from the home is essential if these aims are to be achieved. Every child or young person in Glasgow has the right to be happy and secure at school.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Absence rates are calculated as a percentage of the total number of possible attendances for all pupils of the school in the stage shown, each morning and afternoon of each school day being a separate possible attendance.

The Authority’s and Scotland’s figures include all education authority and grant- aided primary schools but exclude all special schools. For comparison the attached 5-14 attainment data shows Battlefield Primary’s level of performance in June 2003 as well as our current performance. Figures are very positive for all three areas- mathematics, reading and writing. Yet again school performance far exceeds National and Education Authority expectations.
A COPY OF ALL RELEVANT FIGURES IS PROVIDED AS APPENDICES TO THIS HANDBOOK DECEMBER 2008

Please Note



Although this information is correct at time of printing, there could be charges affecting any of the matters dealt with in the document.

  1. before the commencement or during the course of the school year in question.

(b)In relation to subsequent school years.
