      Reminders:

      Communication Books:

      The communication books are checked daily by the Educational Assistants and any important information is passed on to the class teacher. The EAs will initial any notes. Ensure that you check the diary every day and sign messages so that we know that they have been read. Remember to date any notes.

      The book should be used for short and simple queries and administration such as changes in pick up arrangements. The communication book is NOT for updates on children’s progress and learning. For more serious matters, please e-mail the class teacher directly but do allow some response time.

      Uniform

      Please ensure that all clothing is clearly labelled (incl. socks & shoes) with your child’s name on the tag. 

      Snack

      Please provide your child with a small, healthy snack e.g. fruit, vegetables, crackers. As we are an eco-friendly school we ask that children do not bring their snack in plastic bags. A reusable container, which is clearly labeled with your child’s name, is ideal. Please note that the school has a NO NUT policy due to severe allergies.

      Drop-off/Pick-up Arrangements 

      We must be notified of any changes to the pick-up routine by 10am/2pm by calling the office on 2435 5291 or via the communication book.

      Collection of your child

      Pick-up cards must be presented by the adult collecting your child.

      Arrival

      It is important to be on time. For late arrivals, please always inform the office of the situation and ensure you have registered your child with the office on arrival.

      Late pick-ups 

      Please ensure you are on time to collect your child at the end of the session. Doors will open at 11.25am and 3.25pm. Late pick-ups will need to sign out. Do not collect your child without notifying a member of staff.
