Should you wish to or need to talk to your child’s teacher, they are available each morning on both playgrounds. We strongly advise parents to ensure there is parental or adult supervision for children coming to and home from school. Please inform us if someone different is collecting your child.
On days when the weather is very bad, children can come into their classrooms when informed by a teacher.
Please note that we openly welcome, encourage and expect Foundations Stage 1 children to come in to their classrooms with their parents. Parents can then settle their child in and speak with the class teachers about their child.
Home Time Arrangements
The safety of our young people is of paramount importance to us and we will ensure that pupils are safe and secure at all times.
Therefore, we will only release children into the care of individuals named by parents. If someone unknown to us arrives to collect your child, we will not let them go. Please inform us before hand if someone different is collecting your child.
We will only allow Key Stage 2 children (years 3-6) to walk home alone if you have instructed us.
7:45am - 8:55am
Breakfast is an important meal and sets children up well for a full day of learning.
It fuels the body and gets the brain thinking in order for children to concentrate more readily.
In school, we offer a breakfast club each morning.
Breakfast is served from 8.00am for children at a cost of £1.50 per day.
Children are offered a selection of cereals, toast, yoghurt and fruit.
From 8.20am – 8.50am structured activities and games are prepared for children to get involved in, either within the school Hall or the Gym. These activities are led by Teaching Assistants employed in school.
30 Hours Free Childcare
Currently all 3 and 4 year olds are eligible for 15 hours of free childcare per week during term time from the term after their 3rd birthday.
As you may be aware, from September 2017 the Government introduced an additional 15 hours of free childcare eligible for 3 & 4 year olds.
The additional hours are available to working families where:
both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family) and each parent earns a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage, and less than £100,000 per year. Working will include employed and self-employed persons. Parents do not necessarily need to actually work 16 hours a week, but their earnings must reflect at least 16 hours of work at national minimum wage or national living wage. This includes parents on zero contract hours who meet the criteria.
Both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the workplace on parental, maternity, paternity, adoption leave or on statutory sick pay.
One parent is employed and the other parent has substantial caring responsibilities based on specific benefits received for caring.
One parent is employed and one parent is disabled or incapacitated based on receipt of specific benefits.
