Information and Expectations

 

  • Please note the school doors open to allow children entry at 8.45am and are closed at 8.50am. If your child arrives to school after this time they are classed as late and will receive a late mark on the register. Any child arriving late has to come through the office and we ask parents to sign a register explaining why they are late.

     

  • There is a playtime break at 10.30am to 10.45am.

     

  • Lunch is 11.55am to 12.55pm, all children sit with their class in the hall for lunch.

     

  • Second playtime at 2.25pm to 2.40pm for Foundation Stage.

     

  • End of the school day at 3.15pm.

Please note that if your child is late being collected from school and we do not know the reason, we will place them in the after school club and this will incur a £2.00 charge.

  • We operate a breakfast club from 7.45am in the morning; children are given a choice of cereal or toast and are provided with a glass of milk or water. This costs £2.00 per day, per child and can be any day of the week or all week, it’s entirely up to you. Families in receipt of state benefits will receive this service free.

     

  • We also operate an after school club, this finishes at 4.15pm, once again the children are offered a drink and snack. This is a cost of £2.00 per day per child again free to those families in receipt of state benefits.

Note: By Free School Meals we mean those children whose parents receive benefits from the government not those in receipt of the Universal Free School Meals.

We are a healthy school and ask that if you choose packed lunches for your child that you do not put sweets or chocolates in their lunch box and also no glass bottles or fizzy drinks, these are monitored by the lunch time staff.

If your child is absent from school through sickness, can we please ask that you contact school each day of absence with a reason. Please make a note of the school telephone number which is 0113 271 6763. We will also send regular texts out to you and ask you check the website for any further information you may need.

Your child will take part in PE lessons twice a week and your class teacher will let you know when they start school in September what days these are going to be.

Milk is provided to all children at a cost of £6.00 per term, please let us know if your child does not drink it so we can order accordingly.
