Information for Parents

 

  • Dropping your child off at school

As a general rule children should not arrive at school before 8:30am when there will be members of staff on duty in both the junior and infant playgrounds. Once a child has arrived, they must not leave the school again without permission. Children should go straight to the playground and should only go to their classroom if asked to by a teacher, or have a genuine reason for doing so. Should it be a wet day, children will be directed by a teacher straight to their classrooms.

    • Collecting your child from school

At the end of the school day please wait for Junior children by the playground gates. The children will be brought to the gate by their teachers. The infant children can be collected from their teachers at the infant gate. Children will only be released to known parents or carers. If a parent wishes their child to go home with another adult, or independently, they must inform the school office or teacher beforehand.

    • Morning break

Children can bring a snack to school for this break. We ask that children only bring healthy foods (such as fruit or vegetables). Please make sure that it can be eaten easily whilst the children are in the playground. The children are also encouraged to have a drink at break time. They can have either water, a drink brought from home, or cartons of milk can be purchased. Please see the School Secretary for a form to order milk. Children entitled to free school meals are also entitled to free school milk.

    • Uniforms

The school wishes all children to attend school wearing the school uniform. Details of the uniform can be found here. The school uniform can be ordered purchased from the office or from this website .

    • Parent’s Evenings

It is important to keep up with your child’s progress. With this in mind parent’s evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms and a written report provided in the Summer term. If your child’s teacher has any particular concerns, they will arrange a meeting with you. If you have any worries about your child’s progress, please talk to your child’s teacher at the end of the school day or speak to the school office so that a mutually convenient meeting time can be arranged.

  • Parent’s at the School Gate
  • Many friendships develop at the school gate. You will be able to share school related concerns with more experienced parents and ease some worries you may have. However, sometimes what is said may not be true, or the full information, and consequently may make you more anxious. If you have any concerns, always talk to the class teacher to avoid being misinformed.
