Some Reminders for the First Few Days

  • Please bring your child to the Sports Hall at 9:30am on Thursday 30th August  for registration before you take him/her to their classroom. Some older pupils will be on hand to show you the way to the classrooms.

  • When you arrive at the classroom , please wait at the door until the teacher is free to greet your child and show him/her to their seat. Once your child is settled say your goodbyes and leave . Don’t be tempted to hang around the door or windows peeping in  as this may upset your child or other children!!

  • Children go home at 12 noon for the first 7 days.  ( Aug 30th – Sept 7th ) Parents should wait in a queue outside the external classroom doors at home time. You can access this side of the building through the link corridor beside the sports hall.

  • Please try to be punctual as it really upsets children if parents are late.

  • After Wednesday the children will begin school at 8.50am  and you will bring them directly to the classroom for the first few days. The teachers will let you know when the classes are ready to line up in the mornings. Once this begins we ask you to allow your child the independence to walk with the line to their classroom. Please don’t congregate near the main door as the teachers will need a clear view of all the children as they enter in a line.

  • We also ask parents to enter and exit through the staff car park. Please do not enter or exit through the Junior Building . We are concerned about safety if this building is congested with parents and buggies as the children are trying to get in to their classrooms.

  • Children will have one break for the first two weeks so a small lunch and drink is all they need. Let them practice opening  their lunchbox and drink at home before the first day.

  • Remember there are lots of identical sweatshirts,coats, schoolbags and lunch boxes  in each class so please label everything.

  • We know your child will settle in very quickly and we hope he/she will enjoy these early days . If you have any concerns speak to the teacher when collecting after a few days.

  • Any medical issues please chat to the teacher after school during the first week or two.

  • If collecting children early during the year please inform the teacher and enter the school through the reception. We prefer if children are not collected during break time. Any change in the collection routine please inform the teacher.

  • No nuts or nut products allowed. Treat day is on a Friday when a small bar is allowed. We like children to have a healthy lunch. Popcorn is also not allowed as it makes a mess !

  • Book lists will be given in mid September . The online payment facility is available now and includes all books and stationary. If you have other children in the school and want to pay by cash, the eldest will pay the Art and Craft family charge.

  • During the year notices are usually handed given to you the door when collecting. Teachers also post notices on the classroom doors

Mornings:  Enter and exit through the staff carpark

Hometime: Enter and exit through the link corridor or the carpark

See you all on the 30th of August!
