Parents' Information


Welcome to Spinfield School.  We are a one form entry, high achieving primary school in Marlow.  


Visits to our school are warmly welcomed and we encourage you to contact either Mrs Baxter or Miss Childs to organise a tour of our school.


Although teachers are usually available at either end of the school day to discuss urgent matters that can be dealt with quickly, they are often busy preparing resources before school.  Therefore, we encourage parents to make appointmentst after school whenever possible.  The Headteacher is also usually available at these times.


In the Autumn and Spring Terms parent teacher consultations are held.  These are prearranged appointments when you are invited to discuss how your child is getting on at school.

We welcome parents who have time to come and help with various activities, e.g. reading, cooking, sewing, computing etc.  All adults who work with children in school must have a disqualification and barring service check prior to them starting.  Please obtain this paperwork from the school office.  Spinfield has a confidentiality agreement that parents are expected to read and sign to ensure that parents have a clear understanding of their role in school.  To read our confidentiality agreement and our emergency procedures, please see our policy page.


If you would like to help, please let the office know. 


All parents belong to the Parents' Association.  This organisation consists of parents, teachers and governors and runs a number of events each year, e.g. Discos, Quiz Nights, Summer Fayre, Christmas Fair etc. to raise funds for the school.  The money received from these events is spent on projects chosen by the PA committee, making a big difference to the facilities that are available to the children.  Over the past years, the PA has been responsible for refurbishing the library, providing the wooden play apparatus and supporting the school's ICT suite.  The committee is elected at the AGM in the Autumn term and more details of its events and operation can be found in the dedicated PTA section of the Parents' Area.  The PA also issue a weekly newsletter via email to keep you up to date with activities.
