In EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) we support your child in their personal, social and emotional development, and most of this will have been started at home.  However, at school age, it is helpful if your child can cope with the following basic skills: Use the toilet independently, wash hands, dress and undress in outdoor and indoor clothes, fasten and unfasten shoes/coats, use a knife and fork. When a child starts school we ask parents to complete a pack of admissions forms giving certain information such as emergency contact details and medical history.


We are required to record reasons for children's absence, therefore please notify the school of the reason why your child is not in school. For safety reasons, we ask for a telephone call on each day of absence, before 9.00am. If we do not hear from parents, we will make contact with all named adults on your contact list. To keep our children safe, if we still do not hear from parents we will contact the police.  Your child will receive a late mark if in school after 9.10am.


The school playground is open from 8.45am with our Parent Support Worker supervising. Teachers will be available on the playground from 8.50am to talk with parents.
