Beatrix Potter School

Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2

 Start Times 

We open the school gates at 8.40am and welcome the children into class from then. The register is called at 8.50am so anyone arriving after that time will be marked as late. Key Stage two is dismissed at the KS2 playground (Openview side) at 3.25pm. We ask all parents and carers to stand well back on towards the wall so that the staff can be clear that they have seen the adult collecting a child and send them to them.


Our teachers are very happy to set up meetings. You can email them or catch them briefly at the beginning or end of the day to organise a time outside of the school day where all can sit and discuss.


Parents are asked to record their comments on their child’s reading progress in partnership with school. Homework in Mathematics and English is set. The children are expected to be responsible for ensuring their homework is completed as part of their preparation for Secondary school.


We encourage you to send a piece of fresh fruit (an apple, orange or banana) in every day for your child to enjoy in their morning breaktime.


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. Obviously we have to charge (Charging Policy is on our web) but we always aim to keep costs down and we can on many occasions 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 e mail to confirm who this is with. We will not let children leave without permission in writing. If this is a regular arrangement one letter with details will suffice.


Are an important part of our curriculum.  Years 3 &  4 go to a PGL centre and Years 5 & 6 to the National Watersports Centre Plas Menai Wales
