Dear Parents,

Thank you for making us feel so welcome during our home visits. It has been lovely to get to know you and your family a little better and we are looking forward to the rest of the year.

We have a few important notices for you.

Start times

Drop off time is between 8:40am and 8:55am. Any child arriving after this time will be marked as late and have to be signed in via the office. Pick up time tomorrow and next week is 12pm.

Snack and Water

Our school has a healthy eating policy which means that the snack you provide should be fresh fruit or vegetables only. Children’s water bottles are also for water only. Please be assured that children have access to milk at snack time too.


Mrs Burkill’s class will swim on Mondays, starting 11th September.

Miss Mabin’s class will swim on Tuesdays, starting 12th September.

You need to provide your child with; a towel, a swimming hat (available to purchase from the office), a swimming costume/shorts and slip on shoes/sandals to wear down to the pool. You can also provide goggles if your child normally wears these. The children will have access to school floatation aids so please no armbands. Thank you.

School lunches

School lunch sign-up sheets will be outside the classrooms next week for you to select your child’s meals. If they are going to be having packed lunch on any day, please mark a ‘P’.


To avoid upset when precious toys get lost or broken, we ask that children do not bring their own toys to school. Thank you.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions, we are always happy to help!

Miss Mabin and Mrs Burkill
