Pupil Voice

The pupils were asked if they had enjoyed their swimming lesson this week and this is what they said…..

Layla said, “It’s good that we have a pool because not many schools have one.  My friend has to pay for her swimming lessons and for a coach to get them there.  We get it all free.  I really enjoy my swimming lessons.”

Layton said, “I like it, it is good fun.  I enjoy swimming and going to the lessons after school.”

Isabelle said, “I’m glad we have a pool at school.  I like going swimming in school time, it’s a fun activity and I like swimming with my friends.”

Taylor said, “Swimming is really good fun and I just want to keep doing it.  The teachers are really good and nice.”

Kai said, “I find swimming fun.  Swimming is a lesson, we learn how to do good strokes.”

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.

School Uniform

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.

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.
