Welcome to our new pupils and their parents and carers
Hello children and families,
Please enjoy watching the videos from your new teachers at Two Rivers Church of England Primary school - we hope that this helps you to get to know your teachers a little bit more before they meet you in person.

Free school meals
From September 2014, all children between the ages of 4 and 7 are entitled to a free school meal during the school day.
You do not need to register your child as we will presume that all children would like a meal unless you tell us otherwise.
However, if you are in receipt of certain benefits such as Income Support, we are able to access further funding to support your child in school. Please see the leaflet attached on this page to see if you are eligible. Please telephone the school office or call the Free School Meals Helpline number t: 01225 394 317 if you have any questions regarding free school meals.
Your child may continue to bring a packed lunch if you prefer but do take a look at our nutritionally balanced menu, as there may be some meals that they would like to try.
Pupil premium strategy
Please read the information below which gives details of our pupil premium grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil premium allocation
If you are on a very low income and/or you receive qualifying benefits please register your child for free school meals - eligible by benefit (EBB). Although currently all EYFS and key stage 1 pupils can have a free school meal, registration will attract additional funding (pupil premium) for the school which will be used to support your child.
Please call 01225 394317 or apply online for free school meals.
Please make an appointment with Mrs Batchelor if you would like more information. Alternatively there is more information about eligible benefits, and national and local organisations that offer help and support to parents and carers in B&NES, Bristol and South Gloucestershire Councils, please log on to the 1 Big Database.
Impact of pupil premium allocation
We are continually reviewing and reflecting on the progress of our children. This enables us to make provision for those children who are not making the progress we would expect whilst at the same time extending the learning for the children who are making more progress than we would expect. Assessment takes place as part of ongoing class routines and children are unaware that they are being assessed.
Standards are reported to parents as part of our commitment to working in partnership with parents and helping the children move forward in their learning.

Two Rivers CofE Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Eligibility to work in the UK
You must have, or be able to obtain before you start, permission to work in the UK. Further information is available on the UK Border Agency website.
The school will undertake an enhanced DBS check for the successful applicant. If you have a criminal record, you must tell us about all 'spent' and 'unspent' cautions and convictions.
We ask that you also tell us about any police reprimands/cautions/warnings that may be revealed by the request of an enhanced disclosure from the DBS. If you are shortlisted, you will be asked to bring identification to the interview and, if appointed, you will be required to complete a DBS check at an enhanced level.
We will obtain references for the successful applicant. All offers of employment are made subject to the receipt of two references, which we regard as satisfactory.
If any of your previous roles (voluntary or paid) involved working with children, young people or vulnerable adults, we will ask for information about past disciplinary issues relating to these vulnerable groups (including any in which the time penalty is 'time expired') and whether you have been subject to any child/vulnerable adult protection concerns and the outcome of any enquiry or disciplinary procedures.
Our selection process is based on each individual's own merits and abilities. The information provided in your application is evidence and used against the essential and desirable criteria required for the post.
If you are selected for interview, we will contact you with the details of the interview and explain what you need to bring. Our selection processes normally consist of a full interview programme and involves an opportunity to meet some other staff and students. For some roles you may be asked to take part in a written/practical/skills exercise.
All offers of employment are made subject to pre-employment checks including a medical questionnaire and reference returns.
Robust procedures are in place to ensure that staff who have access to children, young people and vulnerable adults or access to sensitive information about children, young people and vulnerable adults are employed safely.
