      • Topic 2

        The K2 team has collated a few useful tips for you to take into consideration. Please also share this information with helpers and relatives.

        Communication Books:

        The communication books are checked by the Educational Assistants daily and information is passed on to me. 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 me 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 a small, healthy snack and a water bottle each day. As part of the school’s sustainability initiative we ask the snack to be contained in a fabric bag that can fit both snack and water bottle. Again, please make sure that all items are labelled.

        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.

        Arrival and pick-up arrangements:

        We must be notified of any changes 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 ring the office to inform them 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.

        We look forward to working with you this year!

        K2 children are delighted to be back at school.
