We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back on Wednesday and hope that this newsletter will answer any questions you have about starting back.
Enjoy the last days of the summer holiday!
Dropping Off and Picking Up
Children will now enter school through the Pearls' tunnel (there will be an adult there on the first day for any unsure) and wait on the main playground. Parents are welcome to wait on the playground with them and we ask that young children are supervised. Staff will then come out to the playground to collect all pupils at the start of the day (8:45am). The door will be open from 8:30am. A member of staff will be on the playground with our breakfast club children.
Please note that play equipment is not for use at this time.
Children are to be collected at 3:30pm (unless on the bus or at a club) from the playground. We ask that parents enter through the car park gate and then the playground gate next to the main entrance. Children will be brought out to meet you and we ask that you then leave through the Pearls tunnel. There will be an adult positioned near the tunnel to ensure that all children leaving are accompanied or have permission to walk.
Breakfast Club children are to be dropped off at the car park gate as usual at 7:45am. There is no need to pre-book and children can attend on any days.
Bus Children will be met at the car park gate and will be taken out to the bus on an evening by school staff.
If you are happy for your child to walk home unaccompanied please let us know via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be mindful if your children need to cross the road that currently we have no crossing patrol.

P.E kit should be a white t-shirt, and black shorts or jogger bottoms in colder weather. Children can bring a hoodie/jumper for colder months which should be plain black/navy/ red or can be one of our school hoodies.
Please note that jewellery should not be worn for P.E due to Health and Safety reasons. If your child has their ears pierced then please help them to remove their earrings on a morning before school if possible on P.E days.
This should consist of a red jumper/cardigan/school hoodie, white polo-shirt/shirt and black or grey skirt/trousers/shorts. Summer dresses or black/grey pinafore dresses can also be worn. Shoes should be black. Please avoid wearing trainers - if worn these must be black. Our uniform policy is available on the school website.
School logos do not need to be worn but if you would like to order logo uniform then please contact the school office.
Book bags can also be purchased from the school office.
If you think you are eligible for free school meals even if your child does not want school dinners then please do apply as we can offer support with uniform and free P.E kit. Mrs Risebury will happily explain how to do this so please feel free to give her a call.
Children earns reads for each day that they read at home/are read to at home. Only one read is counted each day.
This half-term the levels for reading will be as follows:
Bronze - 18 reads
Silver - 24 reads
Gold - 36 reads
Reading clubs are worth 3 reads and these will be start in Week 2.
Reads can be logged on Tapestry, Seesaw or on paper. We prefer reading logged online and ideally as a voice note or video so that staff can hear their reading and comment back. If your child is younger sharing a story with them counts as a read this means that it is accessible to all.
Our last reward was great fun with bouncy castles and lots of water!
