The K2 team has collated a few useful tips for you to take into consideration. Please also share this information with helpers and relatives.
Please ensure that all clothing is clearly labelled (incl. socks & shoes) with your child’s name on the tag.
Please provide a small, healthy snack and a water bottle each day. We suggest finger food such as fruit, vegetables, small sandwiches or savoury crackers. Please do not send in cakes, candy, chocolate or such. We are a NUT FREE school so it is important to not send snacks containing nuts or traces of nuts. Ensure that extended family members and helpers are aware of this policy.
As part of the school’s sustainability initiative we ask the snack to be contained in a reusable container and a fabric bag. Please ensure that all items are clearly labeled.

As the majority of school communication is handled effectively by email and telephone, we have decided to discontinue use of the ‘Communication Book’.
We replaced the Communication Book with a Communication Pouch as we recognise that there are times when leaflets and other items such as cheques may still need to be passed between home and school.
The pouch will be used when we have something important to send home with your child (such as a leaflet) or if we have specifically asked you to send something to us (such as a cheque). We will alert you that something is in the pouch by sending an email. The pouch should only be used when asked to do so by the school office or a class teacher. The pouch will remain in the front pocket of your child’s school bag and will only be checked when an email has been issued.
Contact the school office for all general queries such as change of pick-up details, to report an absence or urgent messages.
For communication relating specifically to your child’s welfare and learning you may email your child’s class teacher.
Arrival and Pick-up Arrangements
We must be notified of any changes by 10.45am or 2.45pm by calling or emailing the school office. Email notifications will be acknowledged by return.
Please note that the school will not change a child’s departure routine without explicit prior instruction from the child’s parents.
Collection of your child
Pick-up cards must be presented by the adult collecting your child.
Arrival and Late Pick-ups
It is important to be on time. For late arrivals, please always ring the school office to inform them of the situation and ensure you have registered your child with the office on arrival.
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.
We look forward to working with you!
