Things to note
Walking to School - To further support the children's physical development we strongly advise walking to and from school and not using a buggie. We recognise some of you may have a little distance to walk and have several children, however, walking strengthens children’s muscles and supports bone development and their co-ordination skills. Walking to school is an opportunity to promote a healthy lifestyle and chat to your child about the day.
Birthdays - we are a healthy school so are unable to accept cakes, however you are welcome to bring in nut-free healthy birthday treats.
Clothing - all children need an extra set of clothes to be kept on their peg in case of an accident. Please make sure everything is named.
Water Bottles - please make sure these are named and only contain water. No milk or fruit juice.
Lunches - please be assured that your child has eaten all or most of their lunch unless we specifically speak to you.
Health concerns - please click here to go to the Health Matters website where you can find health information and advice for children up to the age of 4.
Our Rainbow Chart encourages and supports the children's successes. We acknowledge and celebrate their confidence, persistence, kindness and thinking and listening skills. It is an excellent way to emphasize key learning behaviours and enables all the children whatever their stage of development to experience achievement. This then motivates them to try their best and continue to succeed and develop as happy, confident, capable and sociable learners ready for the challenges of school life.
