This week your child will have a staggered start for Tuesday and Wednesday.


This information is personal to each child and was given to you at the Information Evening or via post or the school nursery if you were unable to attend the Information Evening. Please refer to your pack for your child's session.


On Thursday 5th September  - ALL CHILDREN ARRIVE FOR 9AM VIA THE CLASSROOM DOOR (through the yard gates) . They will stay for lunch and be collected via the MAIN SCHOOL OFFICE AT 1.30pm.


On Friday 6th September all children will attend FULL TIME. 9-3pm via the classroom door.


From Monday 9th the classroom will be open from 8.50.


If your child is attending Breakfast club, you will need to fill in a form from the carousel by the main office or download it from the website. If arriving before 8.30 am, this needs to be booked and paid for on PARENTPAY in advance. See the Office staff for any queries.




From Thursday onwards, your child may bring 2 fruit or vegetable  snacks and a water bottle as well as their packed lunch/school dinner. You will receive a snack letter alongside your contact form on Tuesday.

PE INFORMATION ( Please see school website section under PARENTS - UNIFORM INFORMATION)


Please bring PE kits to school for the week commencing Monday 16th September.

PE kits will stay in school on their pegs and be sent home to wash each half term.


INDOOR PE will be every Monday unless the hall is in use, in which case we will just choose another session.

OUTDOOR PE will be every  Friday subject to the weather.


PE bags will need to contain - yellow t shirt, navy blue or black shorts, navy blue or black joggers, black or white plimsoles or trainers


Please help


Your child will dress and undress themselves in the classroom with help from the adults.

Please help them to be as independent as possible by practising at home.

When they get undressed, they leave their clothes on a chair or in a pile on the table. Sometimes they put their clothes on someone else's pile!

It is essential that you label polo shirts, jumpers,skirts, tights trousers and each shoe


If your child wears tights, it may be an idea for them to have long socks for PE day until they become proficient. Skirts are easier than pinafore dresses to begin.
