Early Years Reception

We welcome parents in to help with reading and other activities after the first half term when the children have settled. Please talk to Mrs Cook/Mrs Hodgins about morning help. Please ask about police checks at the office. Helping your child read, slides from the recent presentation.

If you have any expertise to offer, eg art, science, music, gym etc, please let us know and we will sort out a mutually suitable time for you to work with a small group of children.

Children are able to enjoy a piece of fruit through the EU fruit scheme each morning play.

School starts at 9am and the school bell will ring at 8.55am by which time you should be in the playground ready to start school. Lateness is not acceptable without a sound reason. Year one line up in the key stage one playground. Uniform is part of the school ethos and is expected to be worn (details on our web)

Contacting teachers. Either contact the office or the teacher directly to arrange a mutually convenient time. Teachers are not able to meet during classroom times but are keen to communicate. 

Trips. Local area trips where the children might walk down the library will not need your permission. Travelling further a field or with transport will require your permission. We always aim to keep costs down and may be able to reduce costs by subsidising some trips.

If you are asking someone else to collect you child at the end of the day we must have a letter or an email to confirm the details.  We will not let children leave without permission in writing. If this is a regular occurrence one letter with details will suffice.

As the weather gets colder, please send your child to school appropriately dressed for the weather as the children will spend time in activities outdoors.
