Starting School in September 2022

Play & Chat and Staggered Starts for September 2022

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.

Every reasonable care is taken to ensure the safety of clothing and other articles, but the school cannot accept liability in the event of loss or damage Please mark your child's clothing and property clearly so that it can be readily identified if mislaid. 

The lost property bins are available to parents for search and rescue before and after school.  At the end of each half term named items will be returned to children but anything unnamed will be recycled.  Bringing toys to school is discouraged unless they are specially required by staff in connection with schoolwork. Toy guns are forbidden.  The wearing of jewellery is not encouraged, as it is hazardous and loss or damage of precious items can cause distress.  Long hair should be tied back and earrings left at home on PE days. Children should not come into school with colour in their hair, wristbands, transfers, trainers or make up.  The uniform helps children to come to school in the right frame of mind for work and promotes a sense of belonging.  Our school uniform supplier is PMG Schoolwear, 01895 809 321, or
