Reception and Nursery

We realise that the first mornings of a child's school life can be difficult, not only for the child but for parents also. It is with mixed feelings that parents hand over their child into the care of the school. You may be sad that your child is no longer "at home" but proud to see that he or she is becoming independent. We understand those feelings and will do the best to support you and your child. To make the transfer from home to school easier, we gradually increase the time at which children are at school. Please see the school calendar

We know that for the first few days you will want to see your child safely into the classroom. After this you can help him/her to enter the school by bringing them to the foundation stage entrance where they will be met by the class teacher.

At home time Reception and Nursery children are brought to the foundation stage entrance where you are invited to meet them.

Parents are responsible for the behaviour of their children in the school grounds before and after school starts.

Key Stage 1 and 2

Key stage 1 and 2 children enter the school via the gate onto the playground and into their classrooms. Although school starts at 9.00am , we open the gate from 8.40am to 9.00am. We request that pupils arrive no sooner than 8.40am as there are no staff on duty before that time. All pupils are required to be at registration at 9.00am otherwise they will be marked as late. Teachers are available on the playground until 8.45am. After this, Miss Wallis is on duty at the gate, and is able to take messages from parents to their child’s teacher.

Key stage 1 (3:00pm) and Key stage 2 (3:10pm) pupils exit from the playground.


Please do not arrive at school too early, and help us to retain a quiet calm atmosphere as the children leave the school premises. Please ensure you

stay on the pathways at all times and follow our Car park safety policy – a copy is available from the school office.

Mid-Day Meals

Nursery and reception children receive free milk daily until the age of 5, but a form claiming the milk must be completed. You can also make arrangements to purchase milk for older children. Foundation Stage and Key stage 1 children also receive a free piece of fruit/vegetable each day at morning break and Key stage 2 children are able to purchase fruit / vegetables daily at a cost of 10p per piece.

School meals should be paid for in advance on the first day of the school week. There are two ways of paying for meals: either cash or debit/credit card to the school office OR online at The cost of a meal is currently £2.40. Many children may be entitled to free school meals and we encourage eligible parents to apply for this even if you don’t intend taking school meals as the academy receives additional funding to support the education of each child entitled to free school meals. Information about this is available, in the strictest confidence, from Mrs Hynard in the school office.

If your child has a packed lunch please ensure this is well balanced as healthy eating is part of our school curriculum. Children should have at least one piece of fruit or a vegetable e.g. carrot sticks every day. Please do not send in sweets, crisps or fizzy drinks. However on a Friday, which is ‘chip’ day for school dinners, children may bring crisps.
