There are currently no procedures for reporting Domestic Abuse incidents to schools which means that our children are left without the support and nurture that they need when they need it most. Operation Encompass has been created to address this so that by 9.00am on the next school day the school’s Key Adult will be informed that the child or young person has been involved, heard or witnessed a domestic incident. This knowledge, given to schools through Operation Encompass, allows the provision of immediate early intervention through silent or overt support dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.
At Clayton Brook our Key Adult is Mr Paul Farina (Headteacher)
On Thursday 27th September, we held a workshop offering support on how to help your child develop a love of reading. This included some guidance and top tips to enable your child to read at home. The ppt is attached above.
The above icon will take you to a leaflet entitled 'Staying Safe Online ..... a guide for Parents and Carers'. Please make time to take a look.
The use of ICT including the Internet, e-mail, learning platforms and today‟s mobile technologies are an integral element of learning in our school. To make this as successful and as beneficial as possible for all learners, we expect all pupils to act safely and responsibly when using technology both within, and outside of, the school environment.
This is particularly relevant when using Social Network Sites which are becoming increasingly popular amongst both the adult population and young people. However, many sites do have age-restriction policies where the minimum acceptable age is 13 years. Any child who sets up or uses such a site and is below the acceptable age is in clear breach of these age-restriction policies and therefore we actively discourage this in our school.
A valuable internet site which parents will find very useful which has information on how to keep your child safe online is linked here:
Please see below the example of the Pupils Agreement / Esafety Rules which we ask parents and their child to read and discuss before signing to say they will follow the school rules on using ICT, including use of the Internet.
ICT ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY (AUP)
PUPILS AGREEMENT / ESAFETY RULES
These rules should be a reflection of the content of your school’s eSafety Policy. It is important that parents/carers read and discuss the following statements with their child(ren), understanding and agreeing to follow the school rules on using ICT, including use of the Internet.
- I will only use ICT in school for school purposes.

If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at our school (including pupils on sick leave) you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of Clayton Brook Primary School, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. OFSTED will use the information you provide when Inspecting our school.
Please complete the survey below:
One child in five in England doesn't read well by the time they reach age 11. Please have a look at the poster attached here on this interesting subject.
