Policies & Information

Pace / Pace School / Policies & Information

+ - Homework

Continuing the partnership with parents, children are encouraged to fully participate in their learning at Pace by drawing on their experience out of school. This may include bringing in books, photographs or objects that are related to the themes being covered at Pace. In addition, parents are asked to encourage and practice pre-reading and reading skills that are taught through a reading scheme. Reading/spelling, mathematics and research tasks may also be given as homework to older children.

+ - Term Dates

We are open 38 weeks a year, term time only, which is broadly in line with Buckinghamshire County Council’s published term dates.

We are open 9:00am-3:45pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and 9:00am-3:00pm Wednesday.  Times of Early Years sessions are available on request. Click here for Term Times for 2016/17.

+ - Bad Weather

In the event of bad weather, parents should be aware of our current procedures and the Buckinghamshire County Council School Closures web page.

See our Bad Weather Guidelines.

+ - Religious Worship and Religious Education

A regular assembly and a daily act of worship are part of our curriculum. Religious worship also takes place at festival times during the year. If requested by parents, children can be withdrawn from religious services and will be involved in other purposeful activities. Religious education forms part of the curriculum provided for all children and is delivered in a way that promotes spiritual, moral and cultural development.

Feedback, concerns and complaints

We are determined to be the best we can be for the children and families we work with. We always welcome feedback and suggestions from parents.

Pace recognises that circumstances might arise when parents may wish to raise a matter of concern or make a complaint. Please read our full concerns and complaints procedure here.

In the first instance, minor complaints or concerns should be discussed with the Team Leader who is responsible for making sure that day-to-day concerns or complaints are satisfactorily resolved. The Team Leader will endeavour to resolve the complaint within one working day. If parents are unhappy with the result of this procedure, or complaints relate to other issues, they can refer to the Head of Service or the Chief Executive who will respond within one working day. Should parents wish to institute a formal complaint, either at the outset or at a later stage, they should write to the Chairman of Trustees of Pace, Mr Julian Lovelock. If you wish to contact Julian, please do so c/o The Pace Centre, Philip Green House, Coventon Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP19 9JL. Parents may also request information about the number of complaints received during each school year.

The number of formal complaints registered during the academic year 2015-16 was 0.
