Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then it is important that you inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

 

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy to remain on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

This is because for insurance purposes children should only use school equipment when a teacher is present / supervising. We would request that you do not let younger siblings use it while they are waiting at the beginning or the end of the day. 

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but in the event that this is not possible then it is imperative that the appointment card or letter is bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be

From SEPTEMBER our wrap around care will be extended to children from the age of 2 years upwards

Early Birds 7:45 am - 8:50 am  £5. per child 

8 am - 8:50 am - £4. per child

Summer Term

As the weather hopefully becomes more Summery we would like to remind you of the importance of helping your children to stay safe in the sun. As ever sunscreen should be applied before the start of school especially for the younger children, who find their break gone by the time they have managed to smear it on. Children are allowed to apply sunscreen to themselves during the school day should it be necessary. 

Please ensure that your child has a bottle of fresh water in school on a daily basis. This can be replenished throughout the day a our filter stations. 

Last but not least a waterproof coat as the English weather is not always predictable and we will still endeavour to get the children in the fresh air even when there is a little drizzle about.  

Our Uniform Policy for the Summer term can be found by following this link 

Uniform Policy 

It was also noted that children with long hair were forgetting to have it tied back at all times. This is to help eradicate the spread of head lice that may be present in school.
