Information about the start of the new school year will begin to appear here a week before you are due to return. It will all be sent to parents via the PING app as well.
Current school day timings are:
Reception, Y1 & Y2: 9am - 3:10pm
Years 3, 4, 5 & 6: 8:50am - 3:15pm.
The playground will be open and staffed for years 1 - 6 from 8:30am. The doors to school will open from 8:45am.
The playground for Reception will be staffed from 8:40am.
As of September 2023 the school day will be extended by 5 minuets to comply with the new guidance issued by the DfE.
PROBLEMS ON FIRST DAY
Mr Hayter, Mrs Clark, Mrs Livesey and I will all be on the playground on Monday morning. If your child is anxious and struggling to come in, find one of us and we will help. If you can't see any of us, we'll be inside with one of the other children. Just wait for a couple of minutes and one of us will be back outside.
We are back to normal uniform now. A waterproof coat is a must. The children can bring in a warm fleece or extra jumper in case they get cold in class.
Each year group will message you via Ping to let you know when PE is.
IF YOUR CHILD IS ILL
Please contact the school office on 01273 418026, Option 1 will allow you to leave a message notifying us of your child's absence. Please speak clearly and provide the first and surname of your child, the nature of the illness, and which class they are in. If we require more information a member of our office team will call back. Please report to us each individual day of absence.
Alternatively you can notify us of absence via StudyBugs > https://studybugs.com/

This video explains what is happening and why.
Please park in a considerate manner - never across people's driveways, on grass verges, on the pavement so parents with buggies or wheelchair users can't get past. Also, never in Locksdale's car park.
LEAVING SITE QUICKLY AND NOT CONGREGATING AT THE ENTRANCES
I am asking you to continue to leave site as soon as you have dropped your children off at the start f the day or collected them. Without staggered timings there will be a lot more people on site. I know it is going to be important for you adults to be able to talk to each other and catch up as well but could you make sure that you walk a little way away from school so that the entrances and pavements near the school don't get too crowded.
