Welcome to FUEL at what we hope is the start to a positive partnership between ourselves, you and your child.

Our school opening hours are 9.30am – 3.30pm, it is important your child arrives on time in order to get the best from their time here. If you have any issues with your son/daughters attendance please contact us, we will try and support you in any way we can.

FUEL offers a breakfast club to all its learners providing hot and cold drinks and toast before the day’s learning starts. Your child will need to arrive at the centre at 9.00am to benefit from this. At lunch times, we have an onsite canteen which offers a varied, balanced and nutritious menu that your child can choose from.

Please ensure that you inform us of any dietary requirements your child has.

Welcome to FUEL at what we hope is the start to a positive partnership between ourselves, you and your child.

ATTENDANCE

Your child’s attendance is vital in ensuring progress is made in learning. Non-attendance will result in your child missing out on very important learning time and this may be very difficult to catch up with. If your child’s attendance levels are below a certain percentage, we are required to contact Education Welfare for further intervention. Lateness becomes truancy after 30 minutes. Please ensure that your child is at school on time every day. Please see our handbook for further details. For a copy of the parent/ carer handbook please click HERE.

BEHAVIOUR

Students are expected to respect behavioural boundaries and show consideration and concern for others. We aim to encourage positive attitudes, values and behaviours to ensure productive working environments. Our relationships with our students are based on care, courtesy and respect and we endeavour to help the children to behave responsibly and thoughtfully. We manage an effective and fair rewards system which encourages good behaviour and engagement in school and all provisions which your child may attend. We feel rewards are essential in reinforcing and recognising good behaviour and effort. We believe that rewarding students increases their motivation and their desire to do well in school. For a full copy of our behaviour policy please click HERE.
