Morning Routine: Please help your child to develop independence coming into school. Parents can help promote this by saying goodbye to their child at the gate outside the classroom. Children then come in to school, hang up their coats and bookbags and change their reading book, before getting on with early work in the classroom, ready for the register at 9.00am. Your child needs a refillable, NAMED water bottle filled with water from home (NO JUICE OR SQUASH).
Illness: If your child is ill it is important that you phone the school office as soon as possible on the first morning of their absence. Please let us know the symptoms of your child's illness so we can see if there is a pattern with other children who may have similar symptoms.
To help your child to get the most out of school and avoid spreading infection to other children, please do not send them back to school until they have been well for 24 hours. If your child has vomited or had diarrhoea they must stay away from school until 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
PE Lessons: Year 3 children swim on Mondays. PE lessons for the whole of Badger Class are on Tuesdays and Forest School is on Thursdays (see letters below). All children need their PE kit in school during term time and will bring it home for washing during holidays. Each child must have a pair of shorts and t-shirt for gymnastics. They will also need jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt and trainers for games when the weather is colder. Please make sure that all your child's kit is named.
End of the Day: If your child is going to be collected from school by someone other than a parent, please let one of the staff know, either in person, by phoning the office, or by writing us a note. If someone else regularly collects your child, please let us know in writing and we will keep a note of the arrangement.
Classroom Volunteers: We always appreciate extra help in the classroom, whether it is a regular commitment or occasional help when you are able. We particularly require help with changing library books and maths games on a weekly basis. Occasionally we need volunteers to help on trips, and local visits. If you are interested in helping please let Mrs Eldridge or Mrs Webb know. All volunteers in our school require a Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) check.
