Office Opening Hours
8.15 – 16.45 Monday - Friday
Our Admin Team is made up of the following staff members;
If your child is absent from school due to illness then please contact the school by 9.30am on 01543 412850 or text 07756 921747. You will also need to send a letter explaining the absence on the first day that your child returns to school. As with many other Staffordshire schools, we operate a penalty system and if we do not have a letter explaining your child’s absence then we have to record it as “unauthorised”.
Chadsmead Primary Academy is a cashless school. Payment for snack, dinners, music lessons, educational visits and after school clubs should all be made in advance through the ParentPay facility.
If your child may be unsure as to which day they are having a dinner please let class teacher or office staff know.
Healthy snack money for Key Stage 1/Foundation children is £1 per week and should be paid in advance via ParentPay.
These are arranged well in advance, giving parents the option of paying in instalments where the amount is large. Please would you make sure that you have made the necessary payment via ParentPay and ticked the consent box.
Newsletter and Letters Home
We produce a School Newsletter weekly. Please make sure that you read the Newsletter as not only does it contain essential information about forthcoming school events, you may also find your child has been acknowledged in an achievement in school. An electronic copy can also be found here on the website. Please check your child’s school bag daily for letters home as this often saves a phone call to school.
Text Message Service
We operate a text messaging service to advise and remind parents of events in school, for example snow closure or Sports Day. Please make sure that we have an up-to-date mobile phone number for you at all times.
School Mobile Phone
We have a school mobile phone that is available for parents to send absence texts only to. Any calls to this phone will not be answered.
The number is: 07756 921747
Please make sure that you keep us advised of any change of phone numbers, names or addresses, should an emergency arise and we need to contact you.
