Teachers ensure pupils have their belongings and see them out of the classroom to the waiting parent, carer or responsible adult.
Children wait with the teacher until they are met. If children have not been collected by 3.15pm, the school office needs to be informed so that the Head or the Deputy can make arrangements.
Individual class information is available in each classroom.
Seashells After School Club provides indoor and outdoor play and resources for 2 or 3 hour sessions after school Monday to Friday term time only. Charges include a snack (please contact school office for more details and prices)
Attendance registers are to be marked twice daily at the beginning of the morning and afternoon sessions.
We ask all parents and carers to ring school and inform of any pupil absences before the beginning of the school day. The office staff will record an absence slip and inform individual class teachers. Unauthorised absences are investigated initially via a telephone call on the first day of unauthorised absence. However if unauthorised absences or lateness are persistent the Headteacher and if necessary the Education Social Worker will follow it up. The School office will collate information every week.
Dinner money is payable online with Parentpay (please contact the school office for details on how to login and use Parentpay)
All school meals are recorded daily including free school meals and packed lunches. The school office monitors Parentpay for up to date payment information.
Educational visits and trip monies are now collected through the Parentpay website
Money collected from fundraising is used to provide exciting opportunities for the pupils e.g. visits to the ballet, outdoor education, museums etc
Each class has a medical information list that is initially sent with the registers. Each class teacher is responsible for keeping this in a safe but accessible place.
A termly agenda is drawn up by the Leadership Team, meetings include regular, specific Key Stage Meetings
Children regularly have P.E lessons both inside and, weather permitting, outside. For outside wear, children will need a P.E. kit. which consists of shorts, t-shirt, plimsolls in the Summer Term (and a bag which will hang in the cloakroom to contain them – all items must be labelled with your child’s name).
Throughout the academic year KS1 pupils will attend regular swimming lessons at a local pool. The classes are placed in groups so all groups in KS1 receive at least 10 consecutive weekly swimming lessons. These lessons will be led by Mr Terry Ellis the school’s PE Specialist and supported by the Teaching Assistants whilst the venue provides a fully qualified Lifeguard for the school sessions which are normally held on a Thursday morning during term time.
Children should not wear jewellery in school, things do get damaged or lost and much distress is caused when this happens.
