Key Information

Water Bottles & Snacks
All children must bring in a water bottle each day which should contain water only. Children may drink from these throughout the day and they have the opportunity to refill them when necessary.

In Year 4, children are allowed to bring in fresh fruit or vegetables to enjoy at break time. Please ensure this is clearly named so that it can be easily identified in the snack box at break time.

PE Kit
PE kit must be in school every day.  Please send your child in with their bag on Monday, which will be sent home on a Friday.  Should the children bring their kit home during the week, please ensure it is returned the following day.

Pencil Cases
All children write in a blue handwriting pen which will be provided by the school.  

Start & End of the School Day
School opens at 8:35am and children should enter through the appropriate door before 8.45am.  If arriving after this time, please enter via the office (please do not knock on class doors as this will distract from learning). Children will be dismissed at 3.10pm by the staff from the same door.

Year Group Specific Information
Our Year 4 performance will be on April 1st, we will be sending home lines for some children to learn.
