Severe Weather Conditions

During severe winter weather it may be necessary for the school to close temporarily until conditions have passed, as with all acts of God, there is never any warning when such an event occurs.

School closures are reported via local radio stations all over the UK, Wolverhampton based...

 97.2 FM Beacon Radio

...will report any closures during bad weather conditions. It is imperative that you do not attempt to ring the school to ask whether we are open or closed.  If Crestwood Primary is read out on Beacon Radio as closed, we are closed. 

Obviously, if our school name is not read out, we are still open.

Medical Information  

Should your child have a medical appointment during school hours please ensure that the school receives prior notification either by phone or note.  Children will not be allowed out of the school by themselves, please report to the main office to collect them. A School Health Advisor is available to all children should parents have any health worries they wish to discuss.  You may have concerns about growth, diet, bedwetting, speech, puberty etc...

You can contact our School Health Advisor, Mrs C Palmer, who is based at Brierley Hill Health Centre on 01384  366174 to make an appointment.

Special Educational Needs Co-Ordination

Additional Educational Needs: Should the school feel your child has educational needs as a result of general learning difficulties, emotional or social problems, a physical disability, or it may be because a child is deemed gifted, we will always contact the parents in the first instance.  The school Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) will ensure that plans are put into place to support a child's individual needs.

Why Homework Is Set 

To develop an effective partnership between the school and parents in pursuing the aims of the school.

To Consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding, particularly in literacy and numeracy.

To extend school learning through additional reading; and encouraging pupils as they get older to develop the confidence and self discipline needed to study on their own, and preparing them for the requirements of secondary school.

Parental Involvement

Parents should always encourage their child/children to read outside of school in their own at home, and endeavour to help their children enjoy reading time and use their imagination to it's fullest.

No matter the age group, parents should work alongside the school by making homework interesting, and supporting their child/children in any education related task.

Children in reception class take home flashcards and reading books from our reading scheme at levels 1,2 and 3.  Group reading takes place in each year group using the school's Oxford Reading Tree scheme (fiction & non-fiction) therefore, these reading books need to remain in school.  Books from the All aboard scheme are sent home for children to read with parents.  These are changed on a weekly basis.

Children in the older classes of early years/middle/upper phase are encourage to use the school library for reference, shared reading and reading for pleasure.  Children are also given spelling lists to learn each week and are tested.  The knowledge of multiplication tables and number bonds are tested in the same way.

In Year 5, two homework sessions are set, and in Year 6, children are expected to complete three pieces of homework per week, which we feel is necessary training in preparation for secondary education.  Each piece of work should take between 40 minutes and one hour to complete.
