Lighthouse bullet Sun 05 November 2017 Car Park

Please can we remind you of the key car parking “rules”:

  • The layout of the car park involves a turning circle and parking spaces. Please park facing the building and trees not parallel to them.
  • Parents are encouraged to drop off quickly allowing other cars space to pull over.
  • Please take great care when manoeuvering especially when reversing out of spaces.
  • Please do not let your children walk unattended in the car park and encourage hand holding as far as possible.
  • Please ALWAYS double latch the gate.
  • Do not park in the farm access track beside the school, this is for STAFF ONLY and possibly on occasion by special arrangement for others eg Parents evening or Open days. Staff park here by arrangement with the farm in order to relieve congestion in the car park.
Lighthouse bullet Wed 01 November 2017 Spare Clothes

Please ensure your child has spare clothes in their bag. Even big people get wet or have accidents sometimes. Note the seasons change.

Lighthouse bullet Thu 10 August 2017 Giving Notice

PLEASE do remember that you have to give written notice if you are planning to leave The Lighthouse. A term’s written notice is required or a forfeit of a term’s fees are due. We cannot assume that because your child is of school age that they will no longer require a place. The Law still remains stating that children do not have to go to ‘school’ until the term after they are five. Also Oxfordshire County Council policy is that a school must keep a place for your child once offered until the Summer term of the reception year. Every child is different. Everyone’s situation is different. Every school is different. So remember what we offer.
