Welcome to Year 2!
We are all really looking forward to seeing the children on Thursday 3rd September.
Morning drop-off: Please drop off your child at the entrance to the Astro Turf area via the Dorset Road gate. The gates will be open at 8:10am – 8:50am. The children will then make their way to their new classrooms; a member of staff will be available to direct pupils if necessary.
If you also have a child in Nursery, Reception or Year 1, please drop your children off via the Dorset Road gate and follow the guidance on your younger child’s pick-up times and locations. Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.
If your child is feeling nervous about returning to school following the lockdown period last term, please look at the social story with them (emailed in July) and reassure them. If you need support, then please email the school office and we will arrange to speak to you.
The reopening guidance and social story can be found on the website under the Key information tab - Covid-19 folder.
The government has confirmed that the school fruit and vegetable scheme, which was paused during the coronavirus (Covid 19) outbreak, will resume as normal in the autumn term when pupils return to school. This scheme provides daily fresh produce for pupils in KS1 and helps every child have a healthy, happy start to life.
Please remember that children must be in correct school uniform which is labelled (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy).
Could you also ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and that each item is name labelled. The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use. Smart watches are not permitted in school, due to safeguarding reasons.
We look forward to working with you and your child.

Head of Years 1 and 2
