  • St Wilfrid’s is now a ‘cashless’ school. This means all payments for educational visits, school lunches, revision aids, etc will be made electronically via ParentPay which by now you are familiar with. Please contact Debra Riches via d.riches@stwilfrids.com if you have any questions regarding this or require a reminder of your ParentPay login details.

    If you aren’t able to pay online, St Wilfrid’s now accept PayPoint payments. By making PayPoint payments you can still pay in cash but there is no need for your child to carry money into school, creating a completely cashless school. You can make PayPoint payments for school by visiting any store displaying the yellow and purple PayPoint sign. To find out where you can pay click on the store locator and enter your full post code to receive a list of your nearest stores.

  • St Wilfrid’s runs lots of different activities during break or after school. Some activities offered are designed to support the curriculum, such as Homework clubs and lesson specific catch-up. Some activities are extra- curricular and are there to provide the additional experience of taking part in a fun and interesting activity with other students outside of normal lessons. Please see below the extra curricular timetable for Spring Term 2015

  • Medical and dental appointments should be made out of school hours, where possible.  If this is unavoidable then your son/daughter should bring in a letter of the day of the appointment and take it to Student Services where they will be issued an Early Pass.  Parents are expected to collect their children from school.

  • If your son/daughter feels unwell during the day or an accident has occured then a member of staff must be told straight away.  They will be sent to Student Services in the first instance and assessed accordingly.  Parents/emergency services will be contacted if necessary.

  • All letters and notifications will be sent home via email or text. Please ensure Student Services have your up to date contact details.
