Our Half Term holiday dates are Monday 25th May to Friday 30th May, returning to school on Monday 1st June.
Dear Parents and Carers
We have noticed a significant number of children arriving in school very early in the morning. On some days children are here as early as 8.15.
We need to remind you that children are only admitted in to school from 8.40 when the classroom doors are opened. Prior to this, school offers no supervision for children who may have arrived early. The office staff are not working in a supervisory role even if children are waiting in the Reception area.
There are times, where by arrangement with school, children can be dropped off in school earlier and are then under our supervision.
Children's safety is of paramount importance to us. I am pleased to report that there have been no issues or problems up to now but felt that it was important to clarify the school's role and level of responsibility.
I would ask you to remind your children that if they are arriving early in school that they should not go on the adventure trail or climbing wall, use any of the equipment from the Huff'n'Puff shed or go in to the discovery garden, playing field or meadow. They should wait outside their classroom door. If you need supervision for your children before the start of the school day, Pebbles (891597) offer a breakfast club. A number of our children already attend this club.
The school is currently reviewing its e-Safety provision and would like to find the views of parents on the e-Safety guidance we provide and how we could improve it. With this newsletter is a brief questionnaire regarding e-Safety; if you could complete it and hand it back in via your child(ren) or the office it would really help us further our understanding of our current e-Safety provision.
Cup Assembly will be held at 9.15am this Friday. Cups will be awarded this half term for "Computing". If your child received a cup last term, could you please return to it to the school office as soon as possible. Thank you.
