HANDBOOK (Download link above)
The purpose of our Parent Handbook is to provide parents, new teachers and volunteers with a ready reference to operations here at Cambrai Primary School.
We have tried to include all the details which you might wish to know. This booklet contains sufficient information to answer most of your immediate questions, however should further information be required, we invite you to contact the school.
Please keep this booklet handy, as it will prove to be a useful guide. The school newsletter advises of any
changes that may occur in relation to our policies and/or procedures. It is a good idea to jot notes into this booklet as changes occur during the year - in this way, you will be able to keep your information current.
In relation to issues concerning a student's education, it is recommended that, in the first instance, you contact his/her class teacher.
We believe that quality communication between students, parents and teachers is essential for a child's ongoing success at school. Keeping the lines of communication open will benefit all members of the Cambrai Primary School community.
