WRAP AROUND – BREAKFAST CLUB

Our Breakfast Club is open for children at 8am for which there is a flat rate charge of £1.25 per day, which includes breakfast.   If your child is in receipt of Pupil Premium, then Breakfast Club is free.

 

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS

In the current environment, we are currently not offering after school clubs but will keep this under review. 

THE SCHOOL DAY

The children are asked to be accompanied by an adult at all times whilst waiting to go into school.

At the start of the day:

Year 5 and Year 6 classes come into the playground (Yr5) and the classroom (Yr6) at 8:40am.

Year 1 to Year 4 children can come onto the school site from 8:45am.  All adults and children need to wait outside of the school playground gate until they are called by a School adult (in general this will be Mrs Tucker and/or Mrs May).

Year 3 and 4 children are invited onto the playground to meet with their teachers at 8:45am.

Year 1 and 2 children are invited onto the playground to meet with their teacher at 8:50am.

Year Nursery and Year Reception, after the initial staggered start (please see your individual letters for information), are invited onto the playground to meet with their teachers at 8:55am.

Lunch time for all classes is between 11:45am and 1:00pm.

At the end of the day:

Full time Nursery and Reception: parents need to collect the children from the EYFS gate at 3:00pm.

Year 1 are collected from the playground at 3:05pm.

Year 2 are collected from their classroom door at 3:10pm.

Year 3 are collected from the playground at 3:15pm.

Year 4 are collected from the playground at 3:15pm.

Year 5 are collected from the playground at 3:10pm.

Year 6 are collected from their classroom at 3:10pm.

Any parent who wishes their Year 5 or Year 6 (only) children to walk home unaccompanied, need to contact the school office.

 

As we are still operating within a pandemic, please can all adults ensure that they are keeping themselves safe whilst waiting and ensure the safety of their children prior to the start of the school day, and end of school day.

 

The road is busy, but we do have a wonderful Road Safety Officer who will help all adults and children across the road.  Please use this crossing, rather than walking across on your own.

( Please do not park along Bell Lane, as this obstructs the road and makes it difficult for our children and adults to safely cross the road.)

Homework

A good, well-managed homework programme helps pupils to develop the independent learning skills they need for successful lifelong learning.  We are grateful for parental support in organising homework.

Typically, we expect that pupils will:

  •  Read at home for 15 minutes each evening and discuss books with adults or older siblings
  •  Learn multiplication tables and spellings each week
  •  Practise skills including handwriting, writing, numeracy or reading comprehension
  •  Be asked to complete their work at home if they have made insufficient effort during class time
  •  Be given additional, more extensive homework tasks in Year 6 to help them prepare for secondary school.

Parents and other family members can support pupils by coming in to see the class teacher if anything is not clear.

 

Reading at Home

We ask all parents/carers, to read with children and to write positively in the reading record at least four times a week in Reception and KS1, and at least weekly in KS2.  This support is vital in encouraging children to read.

A variety of homework is set weekly.

 

Numeracy at home

We ask parents to make sure their child completes their daily maths challenge.  if they do complete it every day, they can earn rewards.

ICT At Home

We encourage parents and carers to allow pupils to use ICT at home. We have various on-line platforms that we use to support our learning.

 

Home School Agreement

Our Home School Agreement is a very important document, which we discuss and agree in each class at the start of the year with staff and pupils.  It sets out the agreed school rules.  Children and staff are expected to sign this, and refer to it through the year.  We ask that parents discuss this with their child and sign up to the school rules also.

PROGRESS

As a school, we are committed to improving the outcomes of all of our pupils.  We have re-introduced 3 new core curriculum approaches – Mastery Maths, The Power of Reading and Talk4Writing  and as from January 2019, we will be revamping our STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), to ensure that we are giving all of our children access to a 21st Century Curriculum.  We will also be improving our Music curriculum – and already have Year 3 learning to play the Ukelele and Year 4 learning to play Violin.

To keep our parents updated, we hold a monthly Parent’s Forum. We have two Parent’s Evenings (in October and March). An end of year report is provided in the Summer term.

If you want to find out more about your child’s progress, please ask the Office to arrange a time for you to come and speak to your Class teacher.

Addressing misbehaviour

We firmly believe that our pupils are at the Academy to maximise their potential. It is important that all children take responsibility to create a positive working environment by behaving appropriately in lessons.

We operate a positive behaviour system around our ‘Ready, Respectful, Safe’ promise.  If a child’s choices fall outside of these, we do have sanctions in place to teach the correct behaviour choices,

Occasionally a child may fail to conform to the requirements of the school community. In very serious cases, as a last resort, when a child causes deliberate suffering to others, is persistently rude to teachers or other adults, or brings the school into disrepute, the child may be excluded from school and the Education Authority informed.
