If your child is starting at our school in September 2021, please see the video and information on the page below. We are hopeful that in June or July we will be able to invite you into school - we are awaiting further national guidance before putting in place our transition programme.
Please watch the video below of our school. Because we cannot facilitate visits at present, we hope that this will provide you with information about our teaching and learning, our classes and our school values.
Forest School Friday!
If you are starting school in September 2021
- Please watch the embedded video with further information.
- Please have a look at the PowerPoint on the right of this page. This has some information and pictures about Class 1, and it tells you about a day in class. We hope this will give you an opportunity to start talking about school and look together at the pictures, including those of staff.
What happens at the start of the school day?
Mrs Caton will collect the children from the playground in the morning, and the children will line up ready on the playground. This helps them to start the morning in a calm and orderly way. All classes are currently lining up first thing in the morning and coming out with staff at the end of the day. Parents must wait, distanced on the bottom of the playground.
How do I know what is going on in school?
The website always has events coming up, and recent newsletters. A weekly newsletter comes home on a Friday either by email or a paper copy. Follow the school on twitter - weekly photos are posted with what has been going on. Text messages and emails are sent out with reminders.
What if I have a problem or a worry?
Come into school straight away to talk about it with Mrs Caton or Mrs Roberts. You can either make an appointment or phone to speak to a member of staff. If you usually use email, then use the contact us form on the website. Mrs Caton is on the playground at the end of every day so you can catch her for a quick word or to make an appointment. Mrs Machin in the office will always answer queries about payments, and most other things!
How can I help at home?
Later on in September, Mrs Caton will run some workshops about reading, phonics, writing and maths and how you can help at home. The children will quickly come home with reading books and flash cards. Reading each day is the best way you can help.
