Coats and PE kit should be put in the cupboards provided in the classroom.
Please name your child’s coat.
All money brought to school for trips/visits must be put in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and class on and then placed in the post box in the Reception entrance area. No money is to be sent to the class teacher.
Toys and other personal belongings should not be brought to school. If a child needs to bring in a mobile phone for when they walk home, it must be handed into the office at the start of the school day, and collected at the end of the school day.
If your child is ready to walk home by themselves, we will need a permission letter from parents to ensure that all children are accounted for at the end of the day, for safeguarding purposes.
