Welcome Back September 2023

Tuesday 29th August 2023

Dear Parents/ Carers,


I hope you have had a lovely summer despite the rain!


Here are just a few reminders for the return to school next week. School reopens on Tuesday 5th September for children in Year 1 to 6. Children in our new Reception classes will start school on Wednesday 6th September. Our morning drop off system between 8.45am and 9am will continue to operate. Children will enter school immediately through their appropriate door during that 15 minute period- see below.


•        Reception and Year 1 pupils will enter via the doors on their respective yards.

•        Y2 pupils will enter through the small hall.

•        Y3/4 pupils will use the door to the right of the large hall

•        Y5 and 6 pupils will use the door immediately inside the school yard, at the far right of the school near the car park.

Staff will be supervising each of these doors and they will be opened each morning promptly at 8.45am. Unless attending Breakfast Club no children should be unaccompanied on the school premises before 8.45am. KS2 children will not be allowed in the school yard before the start of the school day.

All children must be in school for the start of the school day at 9am.


Please remember in line with the consultation which took place last term school will now finish for all children at 3.30pm. At home all children with the exception of Year 2 and Year3/4 children in Miss McNally’s class will exit school via the same door as they entered. Year 2 will now exit via the door in the KS1 corridor (this will be clearly marked) and Miss McNally’s class will continue to exit via the small hall. In order to avoid any confusion at home time, if your child is in Year 5 or 6 and will be leaving school unaccompanied please notify either the school office or class teacher.

Also at home time the advice would be to collect your younger children first and then make your way to collect the older children.

It cannot be denied that the change to the end of the school day will have an impact upon parking outside of school, as always I would ask you to be respectful to the residents of Borough Road and surrounding streets.


Breakfast Club will be running as normal from 5th September. There is no need to book and the cost will be £2. All children will be escorted to their appropriate classroom at 8.45am.


We continue to be lucky enough to have secured the funding to provide all children with a bagel for breakfast for the start of the school day. Bagels will be delivered to each class at 8.45am.


A reminder that uniform consists of red jumper or cardigan, grey skirt or grey or black

trousers (not leggings), yellow polo shirt and black shoes or trainers. Please remember

there is no obligation to buy uniform which displays the Jarrow Cross badge, a red

jumper or yellow T-shirt from any supermarket is perfectly acceptable. Also please

remember that we have a good selection of pre- loved uniform available in school

to purchase at a much reduced cost. As last year children will wear their PE Kits for

school on PE Days. Please remember that PE Kit as in accordance with our uniform code

consists of a white T shirt, black shorts/ jogging bottoms and red school jumper.

Children will be notified of their PE days next week.

Enjoy the last week of the holidays and I look forward to seeing you all next week.

Take Care,

Mrs McBeth
