A Welcome to Year R
Miss Morgan and Miss Kennett would like to welcome you and your children to Year R. Together with the support of Mrs Axford, Mrs Barker and Mrs Holbrook we are looking forward to a successful and happy year, full of enjoyable learning.
The water fountain outside Reception has been removed. It is important that children drink plenty of water throughout the day. In order to do this, children need a named water bottle that they can use during the day. Please make sure this does not leak and has a ‘sports top’ lid. These can be bought in the school office. The children are strongly encouraged to drink water, not squash.
Lots of our children have asked for milk. Unfortunately we cannot give milk to them unless you have signed up to Coolmilk. All children under 5 are entitled to free milk. You can register for this really easily online.
Children over 5 have to pay. It works out at about £15 a term. Please see the website for more details. Mrs. Cavanagh in the office will be able to give you a registration form if you cannot access the website.
Break Time Snacks
Reception children currently receive a piece of fruit at break times. If you would rather provide your child with their own snack, please refer to the Parent Handbook for guidance as we like to ensure that we are promoting healthy eating within the school.
As you are aware all reception children are entitled to a free school meal. If you have not already returned the menu with your child’s choices highlighted, please do so as soon as possible. Extra menus can be collected from the office.
Please inform the office if your child wants a school packed lunch.
Arriving at school
School starts at 8:45 and finishes at 3:15. We have an ‘open door’ policy and are always ready to discuss any urgent problems with you in the morning when you bring your child to school. However, if you want to have a longer discussion about your child, please make an appointment to talk to us after school – thank you.
