Children in KS1 should be brought onto the school site by an adult unless alternate arrangements have been agreed by Mrs Evans. Children should not be left to wait alone, and the parent/carer should wait and see them safely inside. Class doors, where children enter are opened at 8.55 am and children should be inside and ready to start the school day by 9.05 am.
If you are late you should ring the bell for a Teaching Assistant and explain the reason for lateness. If your child is in Reception, Mrs Barnes' or Miss Moss' classes you should ring the bell at the main door by Mrs Barnes' class. If your child is in Mrs Horton's class you should ring the bell at the main door by her class.
The morning bell for KS2 is rung at 8.55 am, at this time all children should line up in their class group on the netball court in the KS2 playground. Teachers then lead their class into school and their classroom. We kindly recommend that once the children are lined up that parent's make their way off site. If children are having difficulties transitioning from school to home, for example at the beginning of a new term or school year, having parents lingering can make this more distressing for the child.
If your child is late please do not try to bring them in through the double doors at the back of KS2 nor through their classroom door. They should be brought to the main school entrance. All children arriving after after 8.55 am are required to write in the late book, giving a reason for their lateness.
The start of the day is a very important time in the school day. As well as missing registration, your child will miss the initial input from the teacher regarding that mornings lesson. When your child then arrives the teacher is then required to repeat this with the children interrupting the class and disrupting the flow of learning.
Repeated lateness can have a significant detrimental impact on your child's learning. Therefore, if this appears to be starting to happen we will contact you to to work with you regarding the reason and if we can offer any support. However, continued lateness, without valid explanation is not acceptable and may have significant consequences.
