Registration: Children can be dropped off at school between 8.30 am and 8.40 am. All children will enter through the front gate. A member of staff will be on the school gate every morning to pass on any messages and welcome you into school. Our school office will be open for any queries as normal.
Typical morning routine: All children will start the day with reading. For Reception and Magnolia this includes Little Wandle phonics.
Morning break: Please provide fruit (dried or fresh) or raw vegetables if you would like them to have a snack at this time. Please provide fruit and vegetables only. Children in Reception and KS1 receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable as part of the ‘Fruit for School’ scheme. You may also wish your child to have milk each day. This is provided through ‘Cool Milk’ and is free to children under five (www.coolmilk.com).
Lunchtimes: All children in Acorn, Magnolia and Elderberry classes are entitled to a Universal Free School Meal. Our school meals are provided by The Pollen Partnership. Dinners for KS2 children can be booked and paid for via your ParentMail account. Alternatively, you are welcome to provide your child with a healthy, packed lunch (no chocolate please). Please do not include any products containing nuts as we have a child with a nut allergy in school. Together with the School Council we have produced a useful 'Healthier Packed Lunches' leaflet that clarifies what items can and cannot be included in packed lunches.
Typical afternoon routine: Foundation subjects e.g. Geography, Art & Music and science are taught in the afternoons. he children will spend time involved in topic work (e.g. science, art, music). Children will also take part in PE twice a week and have opportunities to visit the school library to choose and exchange books.
Home time: At 3.15 pm, children are collected from their classrooms. Please follow the one way system entering through the gate by the kitchen and leaving via the Peace Garden and driveway. The children will be dismissed one at a time to the adult collecting them.
