Our office plays a vital role in ensuring that life at Whitegate School runs smoothly each day...

The office is open from 8:30 a.m. until 4pm. It may not be possible to answer the telephone outside these hours, but messages will be picked up on the answerphone after 8:30 a.m.  The school office is open during term time only.

Mrs Shephard (School Bursar) leads the school office and is your first point of contact for any administration enquiries that you may have. She can be contacted via:

In order to assist with the smooth running of the office, please could we ask that you advise us as soon as possible of any changes to your child’s records e.g. new emergency contact numbers, e-mail addresses, change of home address.

Our online payment system through Parentmail improves efficiency, accountability and delivers real benefits to the whole school community. Paying for school meals and residential trips, using this online payment system means no more looking for loose change, or your cheque book that you put "somewhere" for safe keeping a long time ago. 

If, however, you do decide to pay by cheque then dinner money should always be sent in a seperate envelope to any other payments being made for clubs, school trips etc.  In all cases envelopes should be clearly marked with the child’s name and class together with details of what the payment relates to. Cheques for school dinners, trips, residentials and after-school clubs (apart from dance) should be made payable to "CWaC". In all cases your child’s name should written on the back.
