New EYFS Parents 2020
Welcome to Tickenham Primary School! We are delighted that you will be joining us and we look forward to a long and happy partnership with you.
Each year we arrange a comprehensive programme of induction into the school to ensure the smoothest possible start for your child (and yourselves!). This year, some of the events have had to be adapted, because of the Covid-19 social distancing restrictions but as soon as it is safe to do so, we will invite parents and children in to meet face-to-face too.
A letter will be sent to each family outlining our plans over the coming months and to inform you of key dates and information. We will also upload key information and videos to the website.New Parents Booklet

There is a shortcut to ParentPay in the top right of this website, or you can click here: https://www.parentpay.com/
In an attempt to remove all cash and cheques from school we are asking all parents to only use our e-payment system. It can be used for:
- School Trips
- Breakfast & After-School Clubs
- Music fees
This can be done online using a secure website called ParentPay or through local stores where you see the PayPoint logo (a bar-coded letter is required).
We would ask that parents/carers log on to the ParentPay website and activate their accounts, to ensure your child is registered. It only takes a few minutes and you can merge sibling accounts if you have more than one child with a ParentPay account, even if they are at different schools.
If you mislay your activation code, feel free to contact the school office who be able to provide you with a new one.
If you do not have access to the internet, please let the school know.
We understand the importance of working in partnership with our families to ensure that each child receives the best education that the school can offer.
At Tickenham we are able to use text messaging and emailing to communicate school news, updates, reminders, events and other important information.
Text messaging and emailing are discreet, convenient, secure and reliable methods of communication, which saves the school time and money by reducing the burden on our busy administration team, whilst keeping you informed at all times.
From time to time you will receive a text message or email from the school. Please be assured that this service is FREE to you as the recipient of the text message or email.
Notifications will include:
- School Closures
- School Trip Reminders
- Regular Newsletters
If you would like to be added to the texting and emailing service, please contact the school office.
Please Note: In order for this system to be effective, you must ensure the school are made aware of any changes to your contact numbers or email addresses. If you register, but do not receive any texts or emails, please let us know.
eSafety refers to child protection and safeguarding of both children and adults in the digital world. It is about learning to understand and use technologies in a safe, positive way, as well as supporting children and adults to develop safe online behaviours (both in and out of school).
eSafety is largely concerned with internet communications. The internet is accessible from computers, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, games consoles and other devices like the iPod Touch and internet connected TV. Other communication technologies such as texting and phone calls are also covered by the term ‘eSafety’.
