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.
