A copy of the Curriculum Information for each phase has now been posted to the website under 'Curriculum'.
Reception children who are new to the school are due to start on Monday 8th September.
NEW ARRANGEMENT FOR FS1 CHILDREN:
If attending the morning session your child is due in school by 8.30am. Please enter the school building via Children's Centre Snowdrop Room both Courtfield & Lordswood Lane Gates will be opened at 8.20am.
The Lordswood lane gate & FSU gate will be open between 11.30am and 11.45am for parents to collect their children from the FSU.
If attending the afternoon session (12.15pm) children arrive via Children's Centre Reception and will be collected by a Foundation Stage teacher. Pupils leave FSU and site via Lordswood Lane or Courtfield Avenue gate.
We have introduced a new texting service in order to contact parents with general updates. If you have recently changed your mobile number please contact the school office to ensure that they have your correct contact details. Thank you.
We would like to remind parents that places at our Breakfast Club should be booked in advance. Due to Health & Safety regulations we are restricted to 25 children per session. The Breakfast Club is proving to be incredibly popular with some days already fully booked - if you have not pre-booked a place and would like your child to attend Breakfast Club please do not drop them off before first speaking to a member of staff.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Please remember it is essential that you complete and return your menu calendar for meals required for your child in September by
Wednesday 23rd July 2014.
If The Contract Dining Company do not receive your meal request by the end of term then your child will not be able to have a school meal on our return in September.

All children will need to bring their PE Kits (shorts, t-shirt & plimsolls) daily. A reminder that all children should have their water bottles with them daily, especially now that the weather is warm!
We appreciate that some parents may wish to bring their dogs onto the school site when dropping off or collecting their children from school. However, in the interests of health and safety, parents are reminded that dogs (other than service dogs) are not permitted on the school grounds - this includes dogs being carried by adults.
We would also request that parents do not leave their dogs tied up to the school fence near to the school gates.
Thank you for your cooperation.
