School finishing time

This is a polite reminder to all parents that school finishes at 3.15pm – all pupils are to be collected by this time.

We do not provide a child care service for children who are not collected in school – our late club with Mrs Cooling-Hughes is for emergency situations only. We are having a number of children who are not being collected until after 3.40pm on a daily basis.

If parents have children in other schools to collect first, please contact our ‘Out-of-school’ Childcare providers who run a childcare provision from 3.15 – 5.30pm in our canteen building. There is a small charge for this service.

Please contact:

Natalie on 07835307402 for more details.

Home Learning Menus

(Year 1 – Year 6)

Children who are in Years 1 to 6 will receive their new ‘Home Learning Menu’ this week. The idea behind these are to provide suggestions and ideas for ways that your children can apply their learning in real life or practise skills they may have learned in school. The menus run over a half term so that the children can complete them at their own leisure. For every piece completed, your child will receive 5 Dojo points and they will receive a certificate at the end of every half term.

There were some brilliant efforts last half term and we look forward to seeing what this term holds.
