This year, we plan to offer a number of exciting enrichment activities to all children, and we need your help to be able to do so.
We are asking that all parents please try to contribute. This is a one-off payment of £25.
If you are unable to afford this, please do try to make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.
If every parent contributes something, it will make such a difference to what we can offer!
Your contribution is entirely voluntary, but you will understand the difference that it makes.
Please login to your Parent Portal, sign your child up to the Voluntary contribution TRIP and make your contribution payment on Arbor.
Please note that day trips and residentials will be paid for separately, not from the school fund, and you will be notified of these as and when they occur.
Thank you for your continued support.
Well done to all the Reception children for a fantastic first week! We look forward to the children being in school full time from Monday 13th September. A reminder that pick up time on Monday-Thursday is 2:50pm and on Friday it is 2:05pm.
Next week we will be...
- playing games such as 'Silly Soup' and 'Odd One Out' using initial letter sounds
- singing number songs and counting rhymes
- looking for numerals around our classrooms
- talking about how to look after our classroom and keep things tidy
- sharing stories
Reception Welcome Letter- Autumn 1
As you will know all schools need to be prepared for a situation where they need to lockdown the school – keeping children and staff inside for their own safety.
To ensure we are prepared for this we have worked hard to put in place very clear procedures for a lockdown situation using the advice from the Metropolitan Police and other emergency agencies. We have a lockdown policy and procedures for our school, but these are not available on our website or shared beyond staff in the school for obvious security reasons.
We conduct termly lockdown drills with the children and staff to make sure the procedures work. We will ensure that the children understand that, like in the event of a fire alarm – which means the building is not safe – where everybody stays calm and leaves sensibly, a lockdown simply means that something outside is not safe – therefore we stay inside the building and sit quietly and calmly. In an age-appropriate way we will make sure that they are aware of how to respond in the event of an emergency situation.
