Supporting your child and us:


Start of the day - The school day begins at 8.40am when the children will enter through the side door outside 1M, they will go to their classrooms and get ready for the day. Parents are not permitted to enter the premises.


Collection of children at home time -  The Year 1 children all wait in classes by the pirate ship on the main playground at 3.15pm. We ask that you help us to ensure all the children are safely collected from school by: * Waiting for the teacher to send your child to you OR if your child has gone over to you *Letting the teacher know that you have taken your child.


Things to Do At Home At present the only homework we set for the children in Year 1 is to read at home daily, however you may wish to do some extra work with your child to support their learning.  For this term, we suggest you focus on handwriting and help your child to write their letters correctly, using the guide provided.  For numeracy we would like you to help your child read, write and order numbers to 10 and beyond. There are educational websites so if you are interested we would be happy to direct you to relevant sites.


PE The children will have two PE lessons each week, one inside session and one outside session Please name each item in your child’s PE kit.  For health and safety reasons children are not allowed to wear jewellery, including earrings and long hair must be tied back during PE lessons.

PE Sessions are

1LL - Mondays & Wednesdays

1DL - Mondays & Fridays

1M - Mondays & Thursdays


Lost Property Please ensure that the name of your child is in all the clothes they wear to help with lost items. If you find that your child has lost an item of clothing and it is not in the classroom please check at lost property inside the reception area. 


Uniform - Full uniform must be worn. On PE days, children can attend in their PE uniform. For more guidance please visit our Uniform page
