Newsletter – July Week 2

Dear Parents / Carers,

Sporting events

KS2 and Early Years have taken part in their sports events this week.  They all showed a great deal of determination and cheered each other very loudly.  There are some pictures on the website for you to have a look at.

Well done to all of the children and thank you to the staff for making this such a fun and exciting event for the children.

A few shout outs ….

KS2 – Joshua for super fast running. Roman, Maddison, Evelyn and Imogen for their long distance running and all of Yr 6 for supporting each other with so many children out of the class.

Early Years – Grace and Finley for super fast running, Liv and Daniel for fantastic efforts with the egg and spoon race, Frank and Gwyneth for their super efforts in the obstacle race.  A special mention to the football socks and star socks in Nursery which made Jackson and Joel run really fast!

Nursery Children

The nursery children have met Miss Razzaq, who will be their teacher in Reception class.  They all introduced themselves and showed off their wonderful handwriting skills.  Miss Razzaq met a few nursery parents as well.  She will be here on Monday to hopefully meet some more parents before September.


Children are back to school on Thursday 2nd September. (the current nursery moving to Reception will be Monday 6th)

Start times:

Children from Reception class to Year 6 – doors will open at 8:45am.  Doors and gates will be locked at 8:55am.

Early years and KS1 children will come into school and leave via the classroom doors.

We are asking that KS2 parents continue to allow their child to walk down the path to their entrance.

KS2 children will come into school via the changing rooms door (except Year 4 who will go straight into their class)

Finish times from Reception to Year 6 are:

Reception and KS1 – 3:15pm

KS2 – 3:20pm

Year 3 will leave via the changing room door.

Year 4 will leave via their classroom door.

Years 5 & 6 will leave via the main entrance.

Teachers will bring the children to the gates as they have been doing recently.

All children will have been shown where they are coming into school and where they’ll be coming out of school.

Gates will be opened from 3:10pm.

If a parent of a Year 5 or 6 child wishes for their child to walk home without an adult, please complete a form, from Mrs Dean.  We will not allow a child to walk home alone unless the form is complete and signed. These forms are updated every September, you will need to fill in another form for 2021/2022.

Nursery times:

8:45 – 11:45am

(Parents can choose if they wish for their child to attend in the afternoons.  You may be eligible for a further 15 hours of funding which must be applied for before the end of this term)
