At our Monday assembly a representative will be talking to the children about the work Dover Foodbank do for the local community.  For our Harvest Celebration, we are asking parents for donations.  A list of what the Dover Foodbank require is on our FaceBook page.  If you would like to make a donation we will be collecting items all week, please bring items in to your child's class teacher.  On Friday Dover FoodBank will be collecting any donations made. We had a fantastic response last year and hope you will be as generous supporting this worthwhile local charity this year.

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 lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.

Minutes late per day during the school year = Equals days' worth of teaching lost in a year

5 minutes = 3 days

10 minutes = 6 1/2 days

15 minutes = 10 days

20 minutes = 13 days

30 minutes = 19 days

Frequent lateness can add up to a considerable amount of learning lost, and can seriously disadvantage your child. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
