As Reception Class will be moving up to Year 1 in September, and because Year 1 children usually line up on the infant yard each morning before school, we are hoping to start practicing during the last couple weeks of the term, so that the children are used to doing this in time for the start of the new school year - Thursday 5th September 2019.
From Monday 8th July, we are asking parents of Reception children to kiss their children goodbye at the side gate (no parents are allowed through this gate) and send them through to the infant yard, making sure they have their books, bags, kits and anything else they may need for the school day. A member of Foundation staff will be there to meet the children from 8:45am.
Security and safeguarding of our children are of the highest priority and, for this reason; parents are not permitted to go on either of our school yards.
If you wish to speak to your child’s class teacher, please call into the office and we will make an appointment for you. We will pass on any urgent messages straight away. On mornings of bad weather, the children should still enter through the side gate and go into the hall, again not before 8:45am.
Please bear with us while we trial this new routine as it will take time for us all to get used to change. This is all in the interests of the welfare and safety of our children and parents.
We thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
