Children who arrive after the register has been closed will be marked late and need to report to the office, to ensure that their presence in school has been noted for fire regulations. At home time children should be collected promptly. If for some reason you are going to be late picking up your child, please ring the office as soon as possible, as children become very upset when there is no one to collect them and we can reassure them that you are on your way. If someone different is going to collect your child please ensure that the teacher is aware of this as a security aspect.
Children are entitled to 15 hours a week of Nursery education, in some circumstances 30 hours. (These places are restricted and are subject to conditions, please contact the Early Years office for more information). We offer a number of ways that these sessions can be taken.
Five morning sessions (08:30am - 11:30am)
Five afternoon sessions (12:15pm - 3:15pm)
Two and a half days (Mon,Tues and Wed am and Wed pm, Thurs and Fri)
We do our best to offer the option to suit the needs of the child and the parent,taking into account the operational needs of the school.
As with the primary school, please ensure that you keep the Nursery informed about who is collecting your child and if they are going to be late.
Children participate in a daily act of collective worship where they ere encouraged to explore and reflect on a range of ideas and themes based on being a 'good citizen'. Although many of the themes are broadly based on 'Christian themes, we also look at a range of faiths, religions and celebrations that reflect our diverse society.
In Nursery children's birthdays are celebrated at the end of the Nursery session in group time. Children will sing the 'Happy Birthday song'. Should the birthday child have brought in any thing for their birthday, thanks are given by all the children.
From reception up to year 2, children's birthdays are celebrated in our 'Birthday Assembly' and parents/carers are invited to join us. We also have an achievement assembly on a Friday, this is for all children in Reception through to Year 4. It is during this assembly that we also celebrate good work and achievements both within School and out of School. We encourage all children to bring in any certificates or awards that they have earned to this assembly. You will also be invited to see your child's class assembly every term.
Monday Whole School Assembly with Mrs Ponton (theme of the week).
Tuesday Class reflections (based on 'thought of the week').
Wednesday Birthday Assembly.
Thursday Class Assembly.
Friday Achievement Assembly.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from all or part of the collective worship. Should you wish to do so, you are invited to discuss alternative provision for your child with the Headteacher.
As part of the Government's School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme, each child in School and Nursery recieves a free piece of fruit or vegetable each day. All children are encouraged to try the fruit or vegetable therefore it is important that you advise us of any allergies your child may have.
In school we ask for a small donation to pay for extra snacks to accompany the fruit such as cheese or a plain snack.The donation also funds any special treats throughout the year, such as foods from other cultures and party food.
Milk is provided for all children. Please inform us if your child will not require milk for medical reasons. It is government legislation that directs local authorities to make a small charge for the milk. Milk money is collected for the whole year £18 which is payable to Leeds City Council. Please ask at the School office for details.
