Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a Yorkshire Sport Centre of Excellence?
A: Centre of Excellence is an elite award that is given to a very small selection of schools in Yorkshire (we're only one of three in Barnsley). Schools that are awarded the status have to go through a rigorous selection process and used as the standard bearers for PE & Sport in schools for the region. We were awarded our Centre of Excellence status in 2016 for our commitment to increasing participation. We offer bespoke training and school-to-school support for schools in our local area, as well as the wider area.
Q: Where can I purchase Churchfield uniform?
A: Uniform can be ordered from Vortex, a local company that produces a range of products for schools. Order forms can be collected from the office or can be found on the 'Virtual Office' page, under the 'Parents' Info' section.
Q: What time does school start and finish?
A: School starts at 8:55am, and finishes at 3:15pm.
Q: What if my child is late?
A: If your child is late for school, they will need to enter through the front office where one of our friendly office staff will take your child to their class. You will also need to complete a short from stating the reason for your child being late. This is so that we can offer tailored support to individual families when needed.
Q: When can I discuss my child's progress?
A: Our doors are always open! So please, if you would like to discuss your child's progress, any concerns you have or would just like a general update, come in and see us! In the autumn term we hold welcome meetings, two parents' days in the spring term and then finally we send reports out in the summer term.
Q: Where can I find more information?
A: Our website is full of useful information about our school and the work our children do. Take a look around and if there is something in particular you would like to know, please contact the office.
Q: I want my child to attend Churchfield, what do I need to do?
