Please try to ensure that your child is on time. Each class begins the day with a literacy or numeracy activity and your child will be missing important teaching if they are late. Aim to arrive at school about 5 minutes before school begins, as you won't want to be waiting around too long, especially on cold wet days. The hall is open each morning for children who wish to attend Breakfast Club. Breakfast is available from 60p.

Teachers will come out in the playground to meet the children each morning. Please wait in the playground for the bell.  If the weather is really wet, we will try to let the children in early.  Please be patient whilst we organise this, as we have to ensure that we have sufficient numbers of staff available to provide cover.

If you are late, please do not keep your child at home for the day; we would rather a child came late than not at all. When you arrive at school you will need to see the school secretary, to ensure your child's attendance is registered and a dinner is ordered.

If your child is absent from school please ensure that we know why. This can be done by letter, telephone, e-mail or by seeing our school secretary personally.

At the end of the day, please arrive on time. If you are unable to collect your child personally we will need to know, in advance, the name of the person who will be taking them home. Please do not take offense if staff check the identity of a person collecting your child: it is necessary for us to be vigilant in the interest of your child's safety.

IF IN AN EMERGENCY, YOU ARE LATE AT THE END OF THE DAY, PLEASE TELEPHONE THE SCHOOL SO THAT WE CAN REASSURE YOUR CHILD.


LUNCHTIME ARRANGEMENTS

Our lunch break is split to allow more time for the Reception class children to eat and to ensure that they have time apart from the rest of the school. We are mindful that lunchtime can be bewildering for children and try to ensure that there is maximum support for them.

Children may have a school dinner, bring a packed lunch or go home for dinner. Whatever you choose for your child we do ask you to stick to that arrangement for a half term, after which you may change if you wish. If you are having financial difficulties ask at the school office for advice.

Children having packed lunches should bring their lunch in a plastic lunch box, clearly marked with their name and class along with a spoon, straw, or cup if needed. Please do NOT send drinks in glass containers.
