How we communicate
Communicating with You
ParentPay is used as our main system for parents to book school meals, make payments for clubs, trips and events and also to receive communications from the school. It is essential that you activate your ParentPay account as soon as possible and contact the school office if you have any problems accessing your account at any time – if you need a copy of your activation code please contact the school office. All meals must be booked by midnight Wednesday for the following week.
Parent Support - Parent Pay click here for help and guidance using Parent Pay.
Email - is our main method for communicating with you. To receive these emails you must have activated your ParentPay account. Any class related information or direct teacher contact is via the individual class emails.
Website – Our school website provides up to date information including the latest news, letters, calendar dates and regular newsletters. https://www.greenmeadow-pri.swindon.sch.uk
Text messages - are only used to inform you if your child has bumped their head during the day or for urgent messages.
FaceBook – We are using our FaceBook page and will continue to use this to send reminders and updates.
Communicating with the school
In the first instance we ask that wherever possible, contact is made with the office by email or phone.
Child absence - please email email@example.com or phone 01793 521141 before 09:30am each day your child is absent from school. If you suspect that your child may have coronavirus symptoms please follow government advice. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/
Collecting your child – if another person is collecting your child you must let us know as soon as you can during the school day. Staff will not release a child to anyone other than their parent or carer unless we have received confirmation from the parent or carer.
Updating contact details, medical and dietary needs – please ensure that you let us know if your child’s medical, dietary needs or your contact details change. We need to have at least two emergency phone contacts for your child.
Request for Paper copies
Paper copies of any information provided on the website can be provided free of charge upon request.
