We expect all children to wear school uniform. This is a navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan worn with a light blue polo shirt and grey trousers or skirt. Sweatshirts and cardigans can be purchased from the school uniform shop.
Please make sure all clothing is clearly marked with your child’s name so that it can be returned if found.
For safety reasons children should not wear any jewellery in school. However, they may wear a wrist watch and if your child has pierced ears, small studs may be worn. These will need to be removed for PE lessons and if your child goes swimming.
There is some shade in the playground. We recommend that during the hot weather your child brings a sun hat to wear in the playground.
A school meal is available. It costs £2.30 a day. Payment should be made to Mrs Gates in the school office. A copy of the menu is available for you to see on the school dinners area of the website.
Children can now order their lunches well in advance and are given a coloured band daily to match their choices.
If you think that your child is entitled to free school meals, please speak to Mrs Gates in the office for more information
Water is available to children throughout the day. Each child is provided with a water bottle and there is a water fountain in both the infants and the juniors.
If your child is unwell then s/he should be kept at home. Please telephone school to let us know why your child is absent.
Unfortunately, sometimes children do have accidents or become unwell whilst they are at school and we need to call you. It can add to your child’s distress if we are unable to contact you. Please ensure that we have up to date contact telephone numbers for you and tell us straight away if these change.
Children should be in the playground ready to line up by 9.00a.m. It is important to develop good habits by arriving punctually every day.
Bring your child to school on time. Arriving late can mean that your child misses important information about the lesson. It can also be embarrassing for your child and is disruptive for the class.
School finishes at 3.15 p.m. Children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 must be collected by a known adult. Please let us know if someone different from usual is collecting your child. Older children are permitted, with your agreement, to go home by themselves.
No. There is no parking available for parents and carers. Please park your car away from the school gates and never park on the yellow zig-zag lines. The area outside school becomes very congested and is then unsafe for children arriving and leaving school.
We welcome parents and carers in school. If you would like to help, please let us know. Helping in school allows you to understand what your child is learning and how you can encourage your child to learn. It also extends a helping hand to a busy teacher.
Book bags and satchel bags can be purchased from the school uniform shop. This bag will help to protect your child’s book from the weather and accidental damage.
Children should not bring toys, sweets, valuables or money into school. We cannot be responsible for children’s property.
Yes. Children are elected to the School Council by their class mates. The School Council meets regularly and discusses a range of issues.
We would like children to have the opportunity to read at home. Children should bring their book bag in to school every day to change their book. Depending upon your child’s age, other tasks will be set, such as a maths activity, a topic to research or spellings to learn.
We can meet a variety of special needs in school. Please discuss your child’s needs with the teacher. The Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) will be happy to meet with you to discuss specific concerns.
Ask for an appointment to talk to the class teacher about your concerns. If you are still anxious, please ask to see the Deputy Headteacher or the Headteacher.
