Pupil voice

Year 6 pupils have been doing some buddy training with Mrs Manton for the last three weeks. They were asked if they had enjoyed it and what they hoped to achieve with their new little buddy. This is what they said:

Ruby-Rose said, "I have really enjoyed the training with Mrs Manton and I can’t wait till I get allocated my Buddy.”

Anthony said, “we have made a little passport book that we will show our buddy so they can tell us if they are worried or scared or frightened.”

Nirubiga said, “If our buddy comes to us and they are upset we will need to try and help them but if we can’t we will need to tell a teacher."

Dominic said, “I have enjoyed the training with Mrs Manton but I am quite nervous about it.”

Information

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

Book Swap

We have a book case in the school office which is for you to come and take a look. If you see a book you like you may take it and all we ask is that you replace it with a book of your own that you have already read for someone else to enjoy.

We have a parent and baby/toddler group which runs every Wednesday here at school from 09.00 - 11.15am.  All welcome.

Free School Meals

If you have access to the internet and would like to apply online for Free School Meals, please use the following website: http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals.

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
