Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 29th June 2018

29 June 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am looking forward to welcoming you to our Transition Day tomorrow. School will be open from 10 o’clock to midday so that you can meet your child’s new teacher, experience what it’s like in their new classroom setting, and find out about the curriculum for the year ahead. Teachers will be delivering a short presentation at approximately 10.20 am.

I have updated arrangements for the start of the school day from September, the details are set out below. There are no changes to the start or end of the school day, just more convenient drop off arrangements in the mornings. The changes do mean your child’s teacher will not collect their class from the playground each morning. However, if you do need to speak to your child’s teacher or pass on a message, please see Miss Heron in the school office. I will continue to be available on the playground in the mornings, in my absence, Mrs Swinbank or another member of the Senior Leadership Team will be available.


The drop off arrangements from September 2018 are as follows:

 Reception Classes – doors will open between 8.50 am and 9 am

 Years 1 – 6 – doors will open between 8.45 am and 9 am


Children will be asked to come straight into school rather than line up on the playground. Unless there are exceptional circumstances e.g. medical appointments, all children should arrive at school by 9 am. All children who arrive after 9 am will need to go to the main school office.

Have a lovely weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
