Class information:

The school gate will be open from 8.40 until 9.00am (for children who access 30hour provision). Mrs McPhillips will greet your child at the gate, then we will encourage the children to walk along the short ramp and through the gate into school.

The children will all stay for lunch if they are accessing 30hr provision and if they are accessing an A.M session their times are, 8.50-11.50.

The school day will finish at 2.50-3.00 P.M. Please come into the main gate and wait to collect your child at the Classroom door.

Parental support – Open door policy- Staff will always talk to you at the door. If your little one is distressed entering into school please be aware we will call you within a short period to reassure you the=at they have settled.


Please use Parent App, check your phone or email for the invitation from school to join. If you have any problems logging in to Parent App please ask Mrs McPhillipsl for the login for your child).

We look forward to working with you to support your child's learning in a fun and engaging way this year. Keep checking on the EYFS pages for latest information on their learning.


Thursday - PE day (indoor& outdoor) - Children to come to school dressed in their PE kit (White polo school T-shirt, blue shorts or their joggers, pumps or trainers with velcro.) They will wear their PE kit all day in school.


Snack - We provide snack each day for your child. This varies daily from crackers, toast, bread sticks, along with butter, cheese, with fruit and vegetables (apples, pears, celery, tomatoes, carrots, peppers etc.). We try to encourage the children to each a range of healthy foods. We are not currently asking for snack money.


Tissues - Please could you provide a box of tissues? You will be surprised how many tissues the children go through each week! However, it is important that we keep germs away and we teach the children to catch their sneezes and wipe their noses.


Water bottles - Please could your child bring a water bottle (clearly labelled with their name) each day to school. We will keep it topped up with water when it gets empty. We encourage the children to drink plenty of water each day.


Names on jumpers/cardigans /coats & shoes- Please could you ensure that your child's name is clearly labelled on their school jumpers and cardigans. Please ask your child to show you where their name is so they will be able to spot it when they put their jumper or cardigan on in school. The iron-on, sew-on or sticky labels are so much longer lasting than writing names with a biro which washes off. Some clever parents sew a coloured button on the inside of the clothing so that their child clearly knows that this is their jumper or cardigan.


Book bags - There is no need to bring book bags yet into school. We will notify you when the children will need them to bring reading books home.


Uniform- (Boys &Girls) Blue joggers, white polo shirt and black trainers. No jewellery must be worn.

Autumn 1


Well done to our youngest children in the school you are wonderful!

We are really impressed with the way our new Nursery children are settling into nursery class in school so quickly after the summer holidays and how happy and friendly they are with each other in class. A huge thanks to the parents for supporting your children to settle so quickly.

The children are learning the ‘Class rules’ and are learning to share toys and take turns with each other. They have learnt how to sign ‘Good morning’ in Makaton and are becoming aware and making friendships with their teachers. They have found their coat pegs, go to the toilet independently along with many more things! They are enjoying their play in the different areas within the Nursery and EYFS environment and are engaging well with all the exciting resources and activities both indoor and out.

 Hopefully the weather will continue to stay mild and we can enjoy a very pleasant first half-term settling in our little children ensuring they feel safe and secure.
