ARRIVALS & DEPARTURES DURING THE SCHOOL DAY
Please ensure that if your child arrives after registration or is taken out during the school day that he/she is signed in or out of school. This information is required to safeguard the children generally and particularly in the event of a fire or an emergency. The files are located in the school office.
- one is for late arrivals, if your child arrives at school after registration or during the school day.
- one is for departures during the day, if for any reason your child needs to leave school prior to the end of the day.
MEDICAL & DENTAL APPOINTMENTS
Although we appreciate, that this is sometimes unavoidable, please, where possible, try to make appointments outside of school hours and during holidays, especially for routine check-ups.
Parents are able to park in Church Road or the Mountbatten Hall car park at the beginning and end of the school day.
Any parents who feel that they may be entitled to transport for their child to get to school should make enquiries to the Area Education Office.
SCHOOL FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SCHEME
The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme is a Government programme that entitles every child aged four to six in LEA-maintained schools to a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day. The aim of the scheme is to increase fruit and vegetable consumption to help protect against chronic diseases such as heart disease and certain cancers. The scheme means that children receive additional fruit and it is not a replacement for the fruit normally brought to school as part of their lunch or break time snack. Children are offered just one type of fruit or vegetable per day, at morning break time, this helps ensure that the children are introduced to a range of different fruits and vegetables rather than picking the same one each day.
If you wish your child to receive a carton of milk at morning break, please register on the Cool Milk website – www.coolmilk.com, automated telephone line – 0800 321 3248, or complete the form included in the New Entrants Packand return it direct to the company, Cool Milk at School Ltd. The milk is available free of charge to children under 5 years of age and will stop the Friday before their 5 th birthday. A letter will be sent offering the option to continue on the parent payment scheme. For those children over 5 years of age the milk is currently 22p per day for a 189ml carton. A fridge is supplied by the company and a local dairy delivers the milk to school.
