School Uniform PLEASE name EVERYTHING! Even shoes! In Reception we have an Outdoor/Indoor curriculum so please can your child always have a coat (preferably a waterproof one with a hood). PE – we do PE at least once a week. Please leave this at school throughout the week.
Support At Home Each child will have a Communication Diary and a Reading Record Book which will go home. As a school we ask you to practise 4 times a week for 5 minutes. Every week they will bring home a ‘hook sheet’ detailing what we will be doing the following week and how you can help at home. The children will also have a ‘Learning Journey’, which stays at school. We encourage you to add to this throughout the year.
Parent Teacher Interviews First meeting in October, second in February. General day to day information share in mornings/end of day. Concerns which require a longer chat, please ask for an after school meeting.
