INFORMATION FOR PARENTS OF PUPILS IN RECEPTION TO YEAR 2
THE SCHOOL DAY
Boys in Reception to Year 2 are taught in Woodbourne. The school day starts with Registration at 8.30am and ends at 3.20pm. Please enter and leave by either the side maroon gates, next to Field House, or Field House itself, which is opened at 8.00am. The Early Service operates on the first floor of Field House from 8.00am, after which the children are escorted to Woodbourne to their classrooms at 8.30am. Boys arriving after 8.40am should be brought to the main school entrance where Miss Stevenson will register them before they join their class. Please do not use the Star Hill entrance to Woodbourne.
Late Service runs from 3.30pm until 6.00pm with tea provided at 5.00pm. The service operates on a strict ratio basis and parents are advised to book well in advance and termly if possible. If your son stays late occasionally, please inform Mrs. Cockerill. The school will make every effort to accommodate parental requests. However, it is extremely difficult to provide after school care for boys where insufficient notice or no notice has been given.
Pupils are not permitted to leave the school premises during the school day without the knowledge and permission of the Headmaster or a member of staff.
Please complete and return the forms about your son’s health as these give the school information about any special medication or care required. Parents whose children require medication on an occasional basis should bring in to school a yellow form indicating dosage, times, etc with the medicine and hand it to Mrs. Cockerill or Miss Stevenson in the school office.
General First Aid needs are dealt with and recorded by school staff who are able to consult Matron if necessary. Children who sustain bumps to the head are monitored carefully for the rest of the day and parents are informed either by telephone or by note, in line with school policy.
If a child becomes ill during the day parents will be contacted by telephone. Please supply contact names and telephone numbers of another family member or friend willing to be contacted in an emergency.
Please let us know if there are any changes made to information during the year.
