PE Days

PE Equipment

Indoor– shorts, t-shirts and trainers or pumps. Jogging bottoms and a jumper optional for outdoor games. Please ensure these are named.

Lunchboxes

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

Home Time

Children will be collected from the main playground between the two metal structures.

Coats

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

Phones & Personal Belongings

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.

Walking Home

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.

Contacting a Teacher

Please make an appointment via the school office by emailing admin@oswaldroad.manchester.sch.uk, 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.
