Thank you all so much for your help in getting the new school year off to a good start. It has been wonderful to see children in the Pre-Prep skip happily into school in the mornings, and how well they have adapted to new routines and expectations.
We are so fortunate to have such well-mannered, caring and kind children in our school and we value your input to help them settle happily.
Here are a just a few reminders to keep our Pre-Prep running smoothly:
Please return all Tapestry forms by Monday 30th September for the latest, as we wish to go live in early October. This is a very important tool to monitor and record your child's development, so I would encourage you to sign up as soon as possible. Additionally, you will have some insight into their school day, which will surely help initiate conversations about their learning.
All Early Years funding forms should now be submitted. Please ensure you have handed it to the class teacher, as well as provided proof of your child's identity (passport/birth certificate). Thank you.
Kindly remember that all children should be closely supervised by parents before and after school, avoiding the use of equipment, scooters and the adventure aeroplane. Staff have been allocated to other areas of the playground in the mornings, so until your child is with their teacher, their safety and care is in your hands.
Please note that we have extra-curricular and after school care clubs running in areas of the playground in the afternoons, so would appreciate your help in ensuring children are collected on time, so we may secure the gates promptly after collection.
Please avoid using mobile phones in school to ensure we meet our 'acceptable use' policy guidelines. Photographs of other children are not allowed without parent permission.
To ensure children's safety, and to prevent accidents, scooters should not be ridden on school premises.
We must apologise for any errors with regard to extra-curricular clubs, as we have experienced some teething problems at the start of the term. We have now resolved these, so now look forward to extending your child's interests and experiences.
In order to report any late collections, late arrivals, alternative persons collecting your child or any changes to your routine directly to the class teacher, I provide the following class teacher email addresses:
Please be aware that the teachers have limited time to access emails, and should only be contacted with succinct, relevant and important messages.
Face to face meetings could also be arranged if you wish to discuss further issues or concerns, which always prove more fruitful.
Thank you so much for your support in our Phonics Workshop. Many parents attended and found the tips useful. We look forward to an inspiring Maths workshop next Monday at 9am in the Pre-Prep hall.
I look forward to a productive and happy term, and thank you for your help in the smooth running of our school day.
With kind regards,
