Welcome Back

Thursday 1st September

Dear Parents/ Carers,


I hope you have had a good summer holidays  and have enjoyed the lovely sunshine.


Here are just a few reminders for the return to school next week. School reopens on Tuesday 6th September for Years 1- 6 and Wednesday 7th for our Reception children.

As last year we will be operating our drop off system between 8.45am and 9am. 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 entrances and doors will be opened each morning 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.

The school day begins at 9am therefore it is vital all children are in their classroom by 9am at the latest.


Also, please remember the school day for Reception, Year 1 and 2 children finishes at 3.10am and children are to be collected from the door in which they entered. The school day for children in Years 3-6 finishes at 3.20pm. Parents of KS2 children should wait in the usual KS2 area at the front of the school. Year3/4 children who are in Miss McNally’s class (formerly Mrs Holt) will exit school via the small hall and so can be collected from that door.  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.

Breakfast Club will be running as normal from 6th September. There is no need to book and the cost continues to be £2. All children will be escorted to their appropriate classroom at 8.45am.


We have also been lucky enough to continue to secure funding which will enable us to provide all children with a bagel for breakfast at 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
