  • Any Questions?

    We welcome parents in school and always value our parent partnership. However for health and safety reasons, it is essential that we know who is in school at all times.  No parent should be coming in to school through the KS 2 playground doors before or after school.  If you want to speak to a member of staff you must come to the office and ask a member of the office staff.  Staff will always see a parent before or after school if they can. Mr Foley, our Headteacher and Ms Buck or Miss Barker our Deputy Headteachers, are in the playground before & after school most days talking to parents. The office staff are also always happy to answer questions

  • TALK TO THE TEACHERS

    The staff all want to talk to parents and build a positive partnership. Nursery & Infant class teachers are always happy to talk to parents at the classroom door before or after school. Junior teachers are often in the playground; if not ask at the office.

  • School Lunches

    Year 2 Parents: please apply for Free School Meals for September. If your application is successful your child will be given a FREE PE kit, you will get free meals next school year and, most importantly, the school will receive an extra ££££££ of funding. We would encourage all parents to look at this link to see if you are entitled to free meals, even if your child is currently getting a school meal because they are in Reception or KS 1

  • HEALTH

    Sun cream during the Summer term:  Please make sure that you have applied sun cream to your child’s face, back of neck, ears and arms before they come into school in the morning.    Please do not send in bottles of sun cream.  Children should also have a cap in school during the Summer term.

    Nits:  every parent must take responsibility for checking their child’s hair and clearing nits.  This is something that needs to be done at least once a week.  We will be asking the school nurse to meet with families where the children regularly have nits.  If you’d like to speak to a school nurse for help clearing your child’s hair please call:  0203 691 1025

    Earrings :  for safety reasons no child is allowed to wear earrings in school.  Please take them out or cover them yourself at home.  Please do not expect school staff to cover your child’s earrings, this is a parents responsibility.  Thank you.

    Allergy informationplease note that from now on the wraps on the menu will contain mayonnaise.  If your child has a potential allergy to any ingredients in mayonnaise please see Mrs. Nassar at the school office.

  • pants: helping your children stay safe

    We hope that all the parents who attended the PANTS session with NSPCC found it useful.  The feedback was extremely positive.  After half term every class will be holding a PANTS session where staff will share materials with the children to remind them that:

    • Privates are private.
    • Always remember your body belongs to you.
    • No means no.
    • Talk about secrets that upset you.
    • Speak up, someone can help

  • ACCIDENTS & INCIDENTS

    If your child has an accident in school we will send home a note to let you know what happened and what treatment they received. If your child mis-behaves in school you will also receive a note; please talk to your child about what happened and come in and speak to us if you have any questions. You will also receive a note if your child has been the victim of poor behaviour. Parents are always informed of racist incidents.

  • COME IN & SEE

    If you are wondering what your child is doing in school why not come in & see for yourself? Your child's class will do assemblies, go on trips, take part in sports day & enjoy meeting lots of visitors such as authors & people from the local community - please get involved. You are also welcome to come and spend time in class - ask your child's class teacher. You can come every week or just once in a while.

  • OPEN EVENINGS

    We hold three Open Evenings every year, one each term. Parents are invited in to speak to the class teacher about their childs progress and to look at their childs work. It is essential that you attend these important meetings so that you can support your childs learning. Dates of Open Evenings are always on the newsletter. Please speak to your child's teacher at any time if you have any questions. 

  • BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL ARRANGEMENTS

    Punctuality and Attendance:  It is so important that children arrive in school on time every day.  If your child is often late to school please make punctuality a New Year’s Resolution.  Being on time is a life skill.
    Morning Nursery:  be in the playground by 8.40am
    Afternoon Nursery:  be in the playground by 12.25pm
    Reception, Year 1 and Year 2:  be in the playground by 8.45am
    Years 3, 4, 5 & 6:  be in the playground by 8.40am

    Please do not let your younger child/ren play on the wooden play equipment in the Junior playground before or after school. This equipment was designed for school aged children and to be used by children who are all the same age e.g. Year 3 children only use the equipment with the other Year 3 children.

    Also, for health and safety reasons, all children should not ride their bike or scooter once they are inside the school grounds. When you are waiting to collect your child in the playground after school please stand back from the classroom windows because your conversations may distract the children.

    Years 3 - 6 children are welcome to join Morning Sports from 8am each day.   Year 3 Parenets the playground has open access from 8am and until you’re 100% certain that your child will NOT leave the school grounds once they’ve been dropped off at Morning Sports they need a parent/carer to stay with them until the whistle blows.   Once you are confident that your child will stay in the playground you can leave them before the whistle goes.  Parents must be aware that the gates are open at this time of day so a child could leave the site. 

  • BREAKFAST CLUB

    We offer a FREE breakfast service in The Studio from 8 – 8.40am every day.  Parents/Corers are welcome to come for breakfast with their children too; any parents who attend should make their own breakfast and wash up etc.   Children in Years 3 to 6 can come on their own, any younger children are welcome but they must have an adult with them.  Children in Year 3 – 6 can eat and then go and join in with Morning Sports.  This club is sponsored by Gregg’s and The London Mayor’s Fund.

WEEKLY NEWSLETTERS

We send home a newsletter with the children every Friday, this is essential reading. You can request that the newsletter is emailed to you by emailing the school office admin@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk; or click here to download and view our weekly newsletters.

Are you children safe?  Children going home alone …..

Most of our children are brought to school and collected by their parents.  If you allow your child to come to go home alone please make them aware that a man in a car stopped a child from St Mary’s School in Chiswick this week and offered the child sweets.   Fortunately the child was confident and aware enough to run away.  Primary aged children are very young and do not always make the right choice when tempted by sweets, puppies, friendly offers etc.  Children are far safer with an adult or in a group of other children.  No child below Year 5 should be coming or going home from school without an adult.
