RECEPTION INTAKE 2021/2022
This year, we are not able to host the open days that we usually would, which unfortunately means that we are unable to meet all of our prospective parents and answer your questions in person. We have put together some information on this page, along with a form for you to post any questions that you do not currently have the answers to. We will then share these and keep this page updated with Frequently Asked Questions.
Thank you for your interest in our school and for taking the time to find out more about us. We look forward to meeting some of you in the near future.

Please pose your questions on the link below:
How long is the school day?
Currently, our gates open at 8.30am, ready for children to start school at 8.55am. Reception children finish at 3.00pm. This is due to staggered finishing times as part of our COVID-19 risk assessment.
Each day is 6 hours 5 minutes.
How many children are in each classroom?
We have 30 children in each classroom.
Who is the EYFS lead?
Mrs Taylor, the Deputy Headteacher, is currently the EYFS Lead, while Mrs Dight is on maternity leave.
Which phonics program do you follow?
We use Letters and Sounds.
What homework is set for Reception children?
Children are set homework weekly. They are given two books to read each week. We ask that children read 5 times a week. They are also given words to learn and weekly phonics homework.
How do you deal with behaviour concerns?
We follow a consistent behaviour approach, with positive behaviour strategies in place and clear rewards and sanctions there to encourage good behaviour. Our full behaviour policy can be found in school information - policies.
Do you have a breakfast and after school club?
From January 2021, the school will be taking over the breakfast and after school provision. Any parent needing this provision can complete a registration form when they have been offered a place. We will expand the provision to ensure that we can meet the needs of our parents.
Do you aim to develop a relationship with the child's family to enhance their learning and form a community?
We pride ourselves on being a community school. Relationships between staff and parents are very important to ensure the best possible outcomes for your child. Where possible we ask parents to take part in workshops and events in school as well as communicating on a regular basis.
Do you have any special interest groups that the children can join outside of standard curriculum topics? e.g sports, music, pupil council/ambassadors, art etc?
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we are not running the clubs that we usually would. However, as soon as we are able to, we will look forward to starting our many clubs, including football, cricket, netball, drama , art, singing, to name a few!
We do have a school council, with two representatives chosen from each class.
