frequently asked questions

  • 1. The Children's Centre at Gainsborough

    Gainsborough Primary School is very lucky to have it’s very own Children’s Centre attached to it. Our staff work closely to ensure that provision is consistent across all of our Early Years Foundation Stage areas.

    The Children’s Centre at Gainsborough offers a number of part-time, afternoon places for two year olds. 

    Please call 020 8525 9020 for more information.


  • 2. Mobile Phones

    We have a policy that no mobile phones are allowed in school. In the eventuality that your child has been given permission to walk home alone, you may wish for them to carry a phone for safety. In these instances, the school requires that these are held in the school office area until the end of the day. Children must ensure that these are dropped off in the morning and collected from the office at the end of the school day.

  • 3. Holidays

    The school cannot support parents who take holidays during the term time. However, if it is unavoidable that your child is to lose time at school for absence other than illness, please write to the Head of School requesting permission and this will be given due consideration.
