When the school bell rings at 8.45am, the children will enter through the outside door of their classroom. Please bring your child to the following playground before school:
|Reception & Year 1||Rec/Year 1 Playground|
|Year 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6||Bottom Playground|
Morning break is for the whole school and can, for some children, be a worry. So, to alleviate this, for the first few weeks, Reception children will have their break in the Reception playground with two members of staff.
|Morning Session||8.45am – 12.15pm|
|Morning Break||10.50am – 11.05am|
|Lunch Break||12.15pm – 1.30pm|
|Afternoon Session||1.30pm – 3.10pm (Rec & Yr 1)|
|1.30pm – 3.15pm (Yr 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6)|
In Reception/KS1 we have a healthy eating policy at break time. Children up to and including Year 2 receive a free piece of fruit from the government each day. Fruit and milk are provided during the morning session, before the children go out for morning break. Free milk is available until your child is 5. Please sign up for Cool Milk via the link on the school website under Parents > New Pupil Forms. From the age of 5, milk is available but must be paid for by the parent or carer. NB: We are a NUT & EGG FREE school. We have some children and staff with allergies so please do not send any nuts, eggs, nut products or egg products into school. Please see pg. 9 for more information.
Please arrive in time to pick up your child from:
|Reception & Year 1||Rec/Year 1 Playground (3.10pm)|
|Year 2||Bottom Playground (3.15pm)|
|Year 3, 4, 5 & 6||Middle Playground (3.15pm)|
By establishing a routine, you can help your child to be confident about their day. We ask you to be punctual at both ends of the day and maintain good attendance for your child. Please inform your child’s teacher if you are giving permission for someone else to collect your child from school, in writing. Please try to avoid changing arrangements during the day but if you do, please let the school office know.
Children must be collected from their class teacher at pick-up. They are not allowed to leave the school premises unless they are with an authorised adult. Children in Reception, Year 1, 2 & 3 must be collected by an adult. Children in Year 4 may walk home with a sibling or alone, but only if the school office have a letter to advise of this. Year 5 & 6 children may walk home.
Teachers will be available to deal with any queries or problems after pick-up time, or you can make an appointment to see your child’s class teacher with the school office. The phones in the school office will be answered at the following times: 8.30am – 9.30am and 2.30 pm – 4.30pm. Before school and at all other times you can leave a message. These will be listened to regularly.
