Your child’s details
The school must have a completed and signed pupil information form for every child, this includes a consent form for regular out of school activities. If you need to update your child’s details, for example address, please get in touch by completing our online contact form. Select ‘update a child’s details’ from the list of options under ‘reason for contact’.
Parents and carers of pupils at RNIB Three Spires Academy have the opportunity to give your views on our school on the Ofsted website Parents View. Please spare a few moments to register and give your answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as communication, the quality of teaching and dealing with behaviour. Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
RNIB Three Spires Academy values the views and opinions of parents as partners in the education and development of the children who attend the school. To help the school in its journey of improvement, we ask for feedback from parents through an annual questionnaire.

Please be advised that the government introduced free school meals automatically to children up to the end of Year 2. Once they start Year 3 the entitlement stops. I am sending this letter to advise you of this as we have recently been made aware that the council may not inform everyone.
If your child is receiving free school meals in Year 2 but is due to move to Year 3 in September, a payment of £2.00 per day (£10.00 per week) will need to be made starting in the new term. Please send payment into school in a named envelope preferably on a weekly basis to avoid a debit balance. However, monthly is acceptable if you prefer.
If you have not already applied for free school meals and you feel this applies to you, please complete the enclosed forms and we will forward it to the council on your behalf.
If you wish to continue having school meals, please let the office know. Until we receive notification from the council that your child is eligible for free school meals you will continue to be charged.
