PDFHomework Policy



Swimming will take place each week for all Year 4 classes. Children need swimming trunks (not swimming shorts) or a costume, a towel and a hat. All children must wear hats if their hair can cover their mouth or eyes. Children will not be able to wear goggles (the health and safety requirements of Manchester Swimming Team). 


Please make sure your child’s name is on their lunchbox. All lunchboxes are kept in the classroom.

Home Time

Following October Half Term, Year 4 parents/carers will enter school through the Oswald Road gate and follow the blue running track past the Willow Garden and on to the black pitch. Teachers will bring the children to their allocated space on the astroturf area and line them up. At 3.10pm children will be sent home in order of their line. Please exit via the pedestrian gate near the car park.


Coats and PE kit should be put in the cupboards provided in the classroom.
Please name your child’s coat.

Toys and other personal belongings should not be brought to school.

Home/School Bags

Please ensure your child brings his/her red bag every day and check daily for letters or other information from school. Please name your child’s red bag.

Contacting a Teacher

Please make an appointment via the school office by emailing, to arrange a mutually convenient time. If your child is going to be absent from school please ring the office on 881 4266 and leave a message on the answer phone before 9.30 am. If you are collecting children for an appointment please remember to sign your child out at the school reception.
