Dear Parents / Carers
Please could we emphasise the importance of supervising and monitoring children’s behaviour on the school grounds before and after school. School staff are not responsible for supervising children at these times.
The nets on our football posts have been damaged due to children climbing and swinging on them which, as well as the cost to school to repair the damage, is an obvious safety risk.
Whilst we are happy for children and parents to use the field as an ‘overspill’ for the main pathways, children should not be running, cycling or playing on the field, especially in our Forest School area.
A reminder of our start and finish times is below. We appreciate that there are may be one-off circumstances where you may be late in dropping off and collecting children and we will, of course, do our best to support at these times. However, please be mindful of the disruption that late arrivals cause when staff are working hard to get the busy routines of school underway.
Start of the school day:
- For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, classroom doors open at 8.40am and all children should be in school by 8.50am, when the doors will close, and registration will begin. At this point, all staff are working in classrooms with children and are not necessarily on hand to unlock external doors so, if you are arriving after this time, please report to the main entrance .
- For children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, classroom doors will open at 8.50am and all children should be in by 9.00am, when the doors will close, and registration will begin.
Children should not be arriving early and left unsupervised before the start of school.
End of the school day:
- For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, our school day will finish at 3.00pm.
- For children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, this will be 3.10pm.
It is important that all of our children have smooth, safe and happy transitions to and from school so I very much appreciate your support in all of the above.
