New Starter’s 2021
Monday 12th July 2021
We very much hope that your child enjoyed their recent series of visits with us and are now thoroughly looking forward to their start with us in September.
Thank you to you all for attending our meeting with myself and Mrs Morton and for bringing your children to the pre-school visits. This gave our staff the opportunity to get to know your child and vice versa and begin to form what will hopefully be a very long, happy and productive relationship between yourselves, the children and school.
If you have any queries in between now and the end of term on 16th July please do not hesitate to get in touch and we look forward to seeing you all again on Thursday 2nd September. Please note that for the first day only Class 1 children will begin school at the slightly later time of 9.30am and go home at 3.15pm in order to allow them to enter and leave school in a quiet manner without the rest of the school. This arrangement is however only for the first day and normal school times 8.45am start and 3.30pm finish apply following that.
Please set up your parent pay account beginning September, in order to pay for breakfast club and after school clubs if required. Documentation will be issued for this set up on first day of school. School dinners are free for KS1 children. Breakfast club will start on Thursday 2nd September at 8am.
Have a lovely Summer and we look forward to seeing you all again in September.
Mrs D Lee

New Starter’s 2020
Teddy Bear’s Picnic
This morning we held a socially distanced teddy bear’s picnic on the school field for the new starter parents and their children. It was so much fun to see the children in their school environment with their peers.
Thank you to everyone who came!
See you all soon 🙂
Virtual Class Swap Day 2020
Due to current circumstances we have been unable to provide our usual transition between nursery and school so we thought we would make a class swap day video for the children to see their new teachers and teaching assistants who will be in their class come September.
New Starter Meeting – Friday 3rd July 2020
Thank you to all of you that attended our socially distanced, outdoor new starter meeting. Despite the weather it still went ahead and it was great to meet you all and share the information that your child needs to start school on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
As said at the meeting; class 1’s bubble will start at 8:45am and finish at 3:00pm. Parents will not be allowed on site and will need to continue to queue along the green gate until your Mrs Morton or Mrs Plant come out to greet your children. Clubs will not start for Class 1 until after the Autumn term. More updates on this will be given in due course.
Please complete all of the data forms in the brown pack and return to the school office as soon as possible, alongside your child’s birth certificate that we can take a copy of.
Your child’s essentials for their first day back at school are:
- School book bag – for educational books and learning resources,
- PE Bag – to be left on their peg with PE clothes in; shorts, white T-shirt and trainers,
Teddy Bear’s Picnic & Parents Meetings
Dear Parents/ Carers,
This is the time that we would usually be preparing for your children’s transition visits, but because of this unusual situation that we find ourselves in due to the coronavirus, we cannot organise things in our normal way. However, we do understand that starting a new school is a very exciting but nervous time for everyone, so have decided to put some things in place to make this a little less worrying for you all.
Weather permitting, we would like to invite you to 2 events outdoors on our school field to provide you with more information about your child starting school, as well as the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and support staff, as well as the head teacher, before September.
- Friday 3rd July 10:00am – Parents Meeting
(1 parent / carer is invited to a short meeting outdoors on the field to discuss important information regarding your child starting school – no children to this event. Chairs will be placed on the field to adhere social distancing guidelines at all times.)
- Wednesday 8th July 10:00am – Teddy Bears Picnic
(1 parent / carer is invited to come along with their child to have a picnic. Parents must supervise their own child at all times and adhere to the social distancing guidelines and bring along their own snacks / food / drinks for the picnic. Mats will be situated appropriately on the field for each parent and child to sit on. Play equipment is out of bounds for the morning due to current circumstances)
For both of these dates, we are only permitting 1 parent to attend. Please see out school website for the risk assessments that we will be adhering to throughout the visits. If the weather is forecast to rain, we will ring or email you the day before to cancel the event as it will NOT be able to take place indoors. On arrival, we will expect you to queue along the outer green gate, following the 2 metre social distancing guidelines all the way down – there will be 2 cones out setting off this queue. When 10:00am arrives Miss Grant (Morton) will lead you around the outside of the building to access the field, where both events will be taking place.
If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Miss Grant (Morton)
