Questions and Queries Feedback

Below are commonly asked questions or queries – arranged alphabetically – that have been raised through Parent Forum meetings or via social media connected to the school.

You can also email parentcomments@stamfordwellandacademy.org with questions that you would like to see answered on this page.  We will update this page each month though direct replies will be quicker.

HPV Vaccinations

When will these take place for Year 7?  When will we get consent letters for this?

Due to recent changes in the school nursing provision (transfer from NHS to Lincolnshire County Council and streamlining of provisions), the normal timeline of events for vaccinations at the end of Year 7 has been altered.

The current Year 7s will have their consent letters issued in September 2018 and not in this September 2017, as was previously stated.

When students are in Year 8, consent letters will be sent out by email, and post where email is not available, with reminders through the school newsletter.  If you have any further question, please contact Mr. Wilson, Head of Inclusion and Welfare by email at MWilson@stamfordwellandacademy.org.

Lockers

Where can my child get a locker and how much does it cost?

Students should collect a letter from the Finance Office, if they require a locker.  Lockers costs £5 for a key for the duration of the time that the student is at the academy. Replacement keys are also £5.  If you have any further question, please contact Mrs. Beever, Finance Administrator by email at SBeever@stamfordwellandacademy.org or call 01780 761000 and select the ‘Finance’ option.

Lost Property

Where is lost property kept?  Where do I go or who do I contact to retrieve this?

There is a problem with my ParentPay account?

At the beginning of the year, there was a problem with ParentPay due to a number of technical issues.  These were resolved by ParentPay, but if you feel there is a residual issue, please contact Mr Sher Alam, Head of School on SAlam@stamfordwellandacademy.org.

Usually problems with a ParentPay account need to be dealt with by ParentPay support, as the school does not have access to accounts.  Please log in to your account and contact ParentPay using the details under contact us.

If you feel that school could provide support or you cannot contact ParentPay for any reason, please call 01780 761000 and select the ‘Finance’ option.
