Email Communication Statement

As a school we recognise the value of providing email addresses for parents to communicate non-urgent issues with members of staff. At Thomas Jolyffe teachers are free to check their emails as they wish in order to fit to their own preferred work pattern but are not expected to check while they are teaching, while they are at home, or at weekends - so response times may vary. We believe that 48 working hours is a reasonable length of time to receive a considered reply. Urgent matters are best discussed face to face or via the school office, who will ensure the message is delivered as quickly as possible. As with all messages, the meaning and tone may vary depending on who is reading it. Please consider this before choosing to email any member of staff. We would also encourage all parents to consider information sent to teachers regarding other children very carefully as this can be requested by other parents under the rules governing GDPR.


If you need to contact your child's class teacher:


Home learning


  • A minimum of 25 minutes of accelerated reading should take place every day.
  • Weekly maths home learning needs to be completed and handed in every Thursday so that the children can mark their work with their teacher.
  • Spellings will be set on Friday to be tested for the following Friday.
  • Theme home learning will be set once every half term, although not necessarily at the beginning of the term.



Please help to ensure that your child has the correct kit in school every day:

  • Outdoor sport: white t-shirt, black jogging bottoms, red or black jumper, a pair of socks, and trainers.
  • Indoor sport: white t-shirt, red shorts, a pair of socks, and black pumps.
  • Swimming: towel, a pair of goggles, one-piece swim suit (girls), fitted swim trunks (boys).


For the autumn term, Year 6 will have PE on a Monday and Swimming on a Tuesday.
