A reminder that school dinners should be paid for in advance via your child’s ParentPay account.
We are seeing an increasing amount of school dinner debts across our school and we will have no option but to withdraw hot meal provision where children’s accounts remain unpaid.
Following reports of some unacceptable behaviours we would like to remind all families of the following expectations when accessing our school:
*All children are expected to wait sensibly with their adult until their class is called into school.
*Please remind children in Years 5 and 6 who walk to and from school by themselves about the importance of behaving sensibly and respectfully on the school field before and after school.
*The climbing frames are for use during school time only. Children are not allowed to use these outside of school hours.
*Respect our premises by not kicking or hanging off of our school signs, not sitting on our planters etc. Repair costs will be sought from any families that have been found to cause damage to school property.
*Show kindness to any animals that may be outside, such as the cat that regularly comes over to say hello. Taunting or hurting any creatures is unkind and simply unacceptable.
*Only families with pushchairs and/or mobility issues should be using the decked walkways to access the playgrounds. It is vital that these spaces are kept as clear as possible for our children when entering and exiting the school.
*We do not have the facility to store bikes or scooters on-site; if children ride these to school, they must be taken home again. Children must not be riding these at any time on our premises for the safety of all of our families.
*Where possible, we encourage all of our families to walk to and from school. The estate can become very congested at drop off and collection times, so if you are driving, please be mindful of our children, other drivers and local residents. Please ensure that you are driving slowly and parking sensibly.
*For health, safety and hygiene purposes, we are a completely dog-free site. There must not be dogs on our premises at any time, including those being carried. If you are not happy with leaving your dog tied up outside, then please do not bring them on the school run. Any parents attempting to access our site with their dog will be politely asked to leave.
