Personal, social and emotional development
Through all areas of the curriculum we will support the children to become confident and independent learners. They will be encouraged to follow class rules that will make their environment a happy and safe place to be. Each week the children will take part in a whole class circle-time; this encourages the children to listen to each other and helps to increase confidence.
Children in Nursery/Foundation should not wear earrings to school. If your child is wearing earrings, we will ask for them to be removed. All long hair must be tied back and headbands/clips will need to be removed for PE.
It is very important that all children wear school uniform on a daily basis. This consists of white/blue polo shirt, grey/black trousers and a navy jumper/cardigan. School shoes should be worn with white/dark socks, and not trainers.
All children in reception are eligible for free school meals. Our pupils thoroughly enjoy a wide range of 'home-cooked, hot food' at lunchtime. Each day the children have a choice of 3 meals which operate on a three week cycle. They are encouraged to try new things but leave something if they dislike it. We also offer a daily vegetarian choice and through consultation can cater for pupils who require specific diets. The children also have the option to have a school packed lunch.
Children are also encouraged to eat a healthy fruit snack at snack times. This is supplied for children in Foundation Stage. As a ‘Healthy School’, children’s packed lunches should not contain sweets or chocolate bars.
