Hello and welcome back! We have been working hard to plan lots of exciting topics and activities for the term, which we hope you’ll all enjoy!

Routines & Notices

Indoor P.E.

Friday mornings. Please can the children come to school dressed in their P.E. kits, making sure they have their school clothes to get changed into before break. Children must bring school uniform to change into, including school shoes.

Outdoor P.E.

Thursday afternoons.

Reading Records

Children should bring their reading records to school every day. We would like to see parent/carer comments in the children’s reading records three times a week.

Reading records will be checked regularly to make sure children are reading daily at home.


Maths and English homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on a Thursday. Pupils may be required to finish off uncompleted work from class. This will be set, along with a deadline, on a case by case basis.

Registration & Dismissal

It is expected that all children arrive between 8:40am – 8:50am and that they line up with their class when the bell goes at 8:50am.

Your child’s class will be dismissed at 3:20. Please allow plenty of space around the door and teacher when collecting your child.

If your child is being collected by another family member or friend please write a letter to your child’s teacher,

Mobile Phones

Pupils are not allowed to have mobile phones on their person during the school date. Phones should either be left at home or handed to the office at the start of the school day where they will be kept securely. It is the responsibility of your child to collect their phone at the end of the day.

Dates: trips, visits, class assemblies
