    SC. Kids - School access
    The notice displayed at SC. Kids registration this morning implied that parents will now only be allowed access to the hall when dropping of / collecting children and all equipment (for example musical instruments) must be stored in the hall rather than taken to the respective classroom

    With regard to musical instruments can somebody confirm that, for insurance purposes, any damage to instruments which may occur during SC. Kids will be covered as part of the school's insurance policy rather than the individual’s household policy? Or are SC. Kids independently insured in this event?

    School Entrance Time
    Please can you clarify what time the school doors will be opened for the children to come into school?
    On Newsletter No.1 it states that doors will open at 08.45 am and registration is at 08.55.

    In the event of a rainy day can the children still come straight into school from 8.30?

    Many thanks

    Solihull Council's IT procurement department has raised their own concerns about this issue but, in accordance with Rdaw1's request, I will take these up privately with the school. My concern was only to make sure our children's school receives the funding to which it is entitled and I am sorry that other persons do not share that view.

    Sorry, this one makes more sense... the last one was written in haste. Maybe I should scrutinise my own work more!
    Further to SLane's suggestion. Would teachers like to update a spreadsheet linked to the web page for other sorts of school spending. Maybe for stationery and general classroom resources, as this is also our tax payers money? As parents we know that the teachers have our children's best interests at heart and ridiculous scrutiny will only lead to suffocation in the job that they are battling (against some people) to do. Requests like this, as Karen has stated, achieves nothing and makes me wonder what agenda some parents have, to post in a forum such as this. Maybe if you require this detail, a more personal type of communication is more appropriate?

    IT provision
    Not too sure what the above request will achieve. If children now have direct access to a PC within the classroom and also access to iPads then does it matter how they were funded? The PTA raise funds for anything that will benefit the children and school as a whole and the PTA funding for additional iPads was money well spent and was the expected outcome of many discussions and
    events.

    IT provision
    My concern remains that Sharmans Cross is failing to secure the funding to which it is entitled and is relying on the PTA to fund basic equipment for the school. Surely central funding should have supplied ALL the iPads? For each classroom please could 45 Sharmans confirm:
    1. The number of IT suite computers transferred to that classroom
    2. The number of iPads purchased by the school
    3. The number of iPads purchased by the PTA
    Perhaps this could be done by way of a spreadsheet linked to the school web page?
