Years 1 to 6
All children in Years 1-6 return to school on Tuesday 5th September.
Year R New Starters
New starters joining our Reception classes will have a phased start. Reception staff will be making home visits between Tuesday 5th and Friday 8th September. All new starters will start Reception part-time from Monday 11th September before they all attend from Thursday 14th September.
We expect all new Reception pupils to be wearing school uniform when they are in school.
Entry to classrooms is through the external classroom doors or through the doors between the Key Stage 1 and 2 buildings below the canopies past the circular courtyard with the painted picture walls. Staff will be positioned at the entry points and around the site to guide anyone who is not sure where to go.
Drop-off & Pick-up times
Dismissal at the end of the day is at the normal time of 3.20pm for Years 1 and 2 and 3.25pm for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Children should be collected from the external door of their own classroom. Again, staff will be around the school site to direct parents who may not be sure where to go.
Children in Years 5 and 6 only are permitted to leave their classes at 3.25pm unaccompanied as long as parents and carers have given their permission. A ParentMail response form will be available for this purpose from 8.00am on Friday 1st September.
If your child needs any medication during the school day, this can be handed over to Mrs Changara, our Health Care Assistant, who will be located in the Reception outdoor area (inside Gate 3) between 8.30 and 9.30am on Tuesday 5th September.
School lunches - new arrangements
You will already have received information about the changes to our school meals payment system. We will no longer be using the SCOPAY system – school meals will be ordered and paid for using the ParentMail app.
Existing credit from the Scopay accounts has all been transferred to ParentMail accounts. Don’t forget to top up your account in ParentMail ready for the new term.
Full details of the new arrangements can be found by clicking the button below:
Pupils in Year 3 are no longer eligible for free lunches under the Universal Infant Free School Meals funding. You can find out if you are eligible for Benefits Related Free School Meals by clicking the button below. If you are not eligible, you will need to add money to your ParentMail account to pay for meals. Meals cost £2.40 per day (£12 per week).
Please take time to look at our school uniform page as a reminder of our expectations.
New school uniform items can be ordered using the ParentMail app.
We have a supply of pre-loved uniform items which are available at no cost, although items do need to be ordered — a form for this is available from our office in the main school entrance.
Supervision out of school hours
Our Breakfast Club and After School Care Club are both open from Tuesday 5th September.
Breakfast Club opens at 8.00am; After School Club is open from 3.20pm – 6.00pm.
