September 2020

NEW INFORMATION BELOW r.e. start times / finish times and arrangements

First week in school (Mon 7th - Fri 11th Sept):
Due to Covid guidance, you will unfortunately be unable to come into the classroom when bringing your child to school. We will take the children in from the wooden gate to our outside area. Children are to be collected at 12pm. Please line up outside the double gates on the side of the school (Queens Close) and maintain social distancing. We will bring the children out to you and hand them over one at a time. Please inform the office if someone different is collecting your child.

Second week in school (Mon 14th – 18th September)
8.40am-1pm (to include lunchtime)
The children will continue to be led in from the wooden gate of Rainbow’s outside area. Please collect your child at 1pm from the Queens Close double gate (as detailed above).

From Monday 21st September, your child will be full time in school (8.40am - 3.05pm). There will be an opportunity to discuss this if school or home feels that your child should continue part time. You will drop and collect your child from the wooden gate of Rainbow's outside area.

Welcome visits in school (July)

It was lovely to see you at your ‘Welcome visit’ to Rainbow Class in July. This visit gave both you and your child a chance to meet Mrs Baldwin (one of Rainbow’s teachers) and Mrs Macklin (TA). 

Contacting nurseries, pre-schools and childminders

As part of our induction process, we have contacted your child’s nursery /pre-school / childminder to find out all about your child when in their setting.

Class zoom meeting


We will be holding a whole class zoom meeting on Friday 4th September - 9.45-10.15am. This will be a lovely opportunity for your child to see and ‘meet’ the other children and to play a game together before starting school the following Monday. Details of this will be emailed to you.

All About My School

Please find to the right a booklet to share with you child – “All about my school”. In it, you will find pictures of the school and the staff who work there including your child’s teachers. It is a great way for your children to become familiar with school before they begin.
