Attendance and office times
Please remember that school starts at 8:50am with registers closing at 9am. Any child who arrives after 9am will have that session marked as an “unauthorised absence” and this WILL impact on their overall attendance figure for the term. The office staff work from 8:30am until 4pm (3:30pm on a Friday) and there is an answerphone at all other times so that you can leave a message regarding any absences.

Healthy eating
We are trying to promote a culture of healthy eating and would ask that parents encourage their children to bring healthy snacks into school. In addition we would request that sweets are not sent in for birthdays.

Lost Property
The Lost Property boxes are overflowing!! Any items that are unnamed and unclaimed at the end of this week will be disposed of. Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name so that they can be returned to them if lost.

It is lovely to see the children looking so smart in new uniform and I hope that the new facility to order from Tesco Online has also proved useful. All staff will be reminding children about looking smart, with shirts tucked in and long hair tied back. Please remember that children should not be wearing make-up (including false nails) to school and that trainers should not be worn in school, although they may be used for playtimes. The only jewellery that is permitted is a watch, small stud earrings for pierced ears and any item of religious significance. All jewellery should be removed for PE lessons. However if it is not possible to remove earrings due to recent piercing, the children must bring in their own plasters to tape over them.
Please note that any child who is unable to remove earrings for swimming will not be allowed to take part.
