This half term, children will be informed which tasks to complete and this will be written in their personal planners. Homework will be handed out on a Friday and returned on a Friday. Marked homework will be returned on a Tuesday so that it can sit for 72hrs before being marked by staff.
Weekly spelling and table practice remains unchanged, details will be provided with weekly home learning tasks.
Please read the information below regarding illness, lunch, equipment and school uniform requirements and procedures for the summer term.
SNACK AND LUNCH
Pre ordered and paid for snack will be available for your child – these need to be ordered and paid for in advance to avoid daily contact with money – send in money in a named envelope as staff are unable to take cash or change.
Alternatively you can provide your child with a snack, please send one in from home (no nuts, crisps or chocolate bars).
Your child will need a water bottle each day this can be either a reusable or disposable one – they will be given opportunities to refill over the course of the day
Packed lunches should be in a named, disposable bag or a lunch box that can be thoroughly cleaned each day.
Free School Meal and Universal Meals are still available for eligible children –
School dinners will be available to all children if ordered and paid for in advance.
Reading books will be sent home as normal.
Children do not require any pencils or pens to be sent in from home as they will all be provided
Book bags or reading plastic wallets can be used that can be easily stored in your child’s tray
No large bags
Masks are optional for children– but you must instruct your child how to take it on or off alongside provide a clear sealeable plastic bag to store it in when not in use; wet face masks will be disposed of if no sealable bag is provided.
Full school uniform is expected– clean on that day
Sensible school shoes (ideally Velcro fastening) that have suitable grip and comfortable to wear for the day
PE kit is to be worn on the days they have PE.
Clean plain white / school t shirt and jogging bottoms
Trainers or pumps that your child can tie up independently – ideally velcro
No PE bags are necessary
Avoid sending your child into school in expensive / named clothing as the children will partake in activities where staff will not have the responsibility to look after
Ensure all clothing items worn in school are named in atleast permanent ink
If your child is unwell, please keep them at home and seek a test if they are showing COVID 19 symptoms. Children will need to remain at home following guidance until the isolation is over or in non covid cases they are well.
If your child has COVID 19 symptoms, they must be tested and remain at home, where the household will be required to isolate. If the result is negative, they can return to school when they are feeling better and symptom-free.
If a child requires regular paracetamol, they must remain at home.
If your child becomes unwell in school, we will contact you straight away and ask you to collect your child within the hour.
Children with apparent COVID 19 symptoms will be isolated in our medical room – I can assure you they will be supported and movement to this area will be completed with utmost respect and discretion.
