Information for Parents
We are an expanding primary school with a current roll of approximately 650 pupils which includes our 60 place Nursery.
At Lily Lane, our goal is to ensure that everyone is highly motivated and engaged by their experience with us, be it a pupil, staff member, parent or a community volunteer, and to enrich their time together at school. Our school statement is, ‘Let’s Learn and Succeed Together.’ Children, staff and parents work actively in partnership to enable all children to realise their full potential.
When your child joins Lily Lane Primary you will be able to visit the school and you will be given all the information you need to help your child settle into our school. You will also be asked to sign our Home-School Agreement which outlines the expectations and commitments of parents, pupils and the school.
It is important that your child arrives at school on time every day. If your child is unable to attend school, please let us know by telephone. If we do not receive an acceptable reason for your child’s absence, it will be noted as an unauthorised absence. Attendance is monitored daily by the school and regularly by the local authority.
Please let us know in advance if your child has an appointment with the doctor or dentist so that an appropriate mark can be put in the attendance register, appointment cards/letters should be shown to the office.
We run a reward system for pupils who attain 100% attendance each half term.
Requests for absence during term time
It is not possible for Headteachers to authorise absences for holidays during term time. Such requests can only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.
Safety and Security
For the safety of all our children the school gates are fitted with an automated locking system. They will open from 8.00am (for Breakfast Club) until 9.10am and then from 3.00pm until 3.25pm. At all other times parents who need to visit school should come to the visitors entrance via the Lily Lane car park.
Health, Safety and Wellbeing
At Lily Lane we expect everyone to behave in a way which ensures the safety and wellbeing of all the children and encourages a positive start to the day.
The school will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behaviour either to members of our staff or to other members of the community. Where parents and carers do not respect this, further action will be taken. In some instances this may include being banned from the school site.
The school is fully committed to Manchester City Council’s policies on anti-racism and equal opportunities. We have a positive and inclusive school community where all individuals are treated equally and with respect of gender, race, religion, culture and ability. All forms of verbal abuse will be treated seriously and it will always be made clear that racial acts and/or name calling will not be tolerated in school.
