Absence due to COVID-19
If your child is absent from school due to a positive COVID-19 PCR test, their class teacher will provide home learning via Google Classroom. Once you have had a positive test (and told us), please log on to Google Classroom to access home learning. If you cannot remember your child's login details, please contact email@example.com and we will reset the password.
Starting School in September 2022?
New Parent Meetings will be held at the West Site (Brunts Lane) on Thursday 9th June at 9.15 am and 7.30 pm and at the East Site (Kings Reach) on Thursday 16th June at 9.30 am and 7.30 pm. You can attend any of these meetings. You don't have to come to the one at the site your child will attend. Which ever date and time suits you.
We would like to invite you and your child/children to visit the setting. The children can come along, for 45 minutes, to meet their class teacher and teaching assistant plus see the reception garden and classroom. These sessions will be held on Monday 20th June, 4.15 - 5 pm, Monday 27th June 4.15 - 5 pm and Monday 4th July 4.15 - 5 pm. You can attend as many sessions as you would like.
Roll Over Morning
On Friday 8th July, your child can come to school from 9.30 - 11.30 am and spend time in their class. They will meet their teacher and teaching assistant again and meet their new friends. Parents/carers leave the children for the first time on this visit. Please bring them/collect them from the Reception Class doors. If your child is at Rainbow Pre-School that morning their staff will bring them and collect them. We request that children bring a named bottle of water, a sun hat and wear sensible shoes.
Play and Chat Sessions
On Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th September we will have Play and Chat Sessions. For these sessions you will receive a day and time slot. Only a few families at a time attend, giving the children time to quietly re-familiarise themselves with the staff and their classroom after the holidays and giving you time to chat with staff about anything you think they need to know. It is a great opportunity for us all to get to know each other.
Our Staggered Start
It is best for children if they have a staggered start to school to help them settle in and get used to all the new experiences, rules and routines. We appreciate that for working parents this can be difficult, so we keep the staggered start short.
Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September – 8.55 a.m. – 12 noon (i.e. home before lunch)
Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th – 8.55 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. (i.e. home just after lunch)
From Thursday 15th September – 8.55 a.m. – 3.30 p.m. – Full days.
We do our best to remain open in snowy weather and will only close if we do not have enough staff in school or there is a heating problem. We make our decision fairly late, as if we make it too early, we are more likely to close. You can register for alerts from Central Bedfordshire at:
